Starting from the next series in 2018, GT12 cars will be only running the Contact front and rear control tyres with additive.

Please use it sparingly, preferably applied with the LRP style foam applicator. Also, you MUST wipe off any excess wetness from the tyres AND spin the rear wheels on the mat by the rostrum before using the car on the track.

If the carpet becomes soaked in additive like it did before, we will have to stop using it.

Please do not let this happen.

AORRC only run Amb/Mylaps Personal Transponders. However Mk 2 MRT Transponders work.

If in doubt please ask.

We will have a couple of PT's to hire out to visitors(£1), however any new members would be expected to buy one.

Track laying & putting away

It has been brought to my attention yet again that a number of people feel they do not need to contribute to the above.

I would like to say to everyone that if you race you need to help.

As a reminder you need to arrive by 18:30 and should not leave until all the equipment is away and the hall floor has been swept.
