10242Ringwood Cheetahs Banger Club - #251/#101
- May 1, 2006Hi there.
Yesterday saw me clock up #251 and Linda #101 as we visited one of the best
kept secrets in UK Oval Racing I dont even think its on Wills database
Ringwood Cheetahs is a little Banger Club in Hampshire, in the part of
England known as the New Forest. Its been running years, although I thought
it had shut down as I couldnt seem to find any info. However, a few weeks
ago someone posted some info about it on a Banger Forum that I subscribe to,
so a few enquiries were made and a list of dates were acquired all I had to
do now was find it. A google search produced directions for a model aircraft
club, sited in the next door field, so armed with this we set off in search.
Good job we had these as there didnt appear to be a single sign or marker
pointing out the track. AND, as it was right behind a big car boot sale, I
d never have spotted it from the road.
We paid our £5 entry and in we went to say it was basic would be an
understatement. If they let the undergrowth grow much higher, you wont be
able to see the track.
A quick wander around the pits found what appeared to be two classes of
Rookie Bangers, Juniors and Seniors there subsequently turned out to be
three grades of Juniors; novices, blue tops and red tops (who were allowed
to contact). Around 50-60 cars in all.
We had to wait three races of Juniors before the first countable class
appeared and we scored the track but as the afternoon went on we were
pleasantly surprised at some good, competitive, fun racing. Very laid back
attitude all around and a relaxing days racing. Good Fun!
So Will get it on the database and I have dates if anyone wishes to visit
Spike & Linda (UKs #1 Male & Female Trackchasers !!!)
PS #252 & #102 Fleet Motor Club Fig.8 (thanks for tip off Will) today,
