The Webs site is still very

The Webs site is still very much under construction and is being changed and updated on a daily basis. However the course will not change, or the access route. Everything else is very fluid and there are a lot of things to add. What I want is more teams to confirm they would like to attend.Cool

Team Weasel will be there

Look out for a barely controlled sidehack showing how it should be done. Team Weasel will be there.

Team Rooket also plan to be

Team Rooket also plan to be there - rushing at the last minute no doubt!

Not sure what mods to Naecost we will have a chance to get done between May 1st and 7th though.

Had thought about selling and building a new one, but with our track record of rushing it looks like Naecost will still be racing next year.

Charlie well done for getting the event up and running, you are going to be a busy boy. Do you have an idea when you will open up for entries and the expected cost?

Also, it looks like an excellent venue, has the Laird or yourself considered creating a joint event i.e. classic cars and bike show, etc. Will bring in the crowds and could generate some extra revenue.

Hi andrew - Great to see a

Hi andrew - Great to see a new team and even better to hear you are coming to Castle Forbes, that sounds Tickettyboo.Cool However it would be an even better idea to enter the event sooner rather than later because you can't just turn up on the day and get a place.

Graham needs time to get the I/D badges printed and we need your Disclaimer and Entry forms completed. You can download them from the Castle Forbes Webs site.
