20 - 21 January 2018
This is a favorite of Vinnys. Sure, we have had our tests and tribulations here too. But the track, the people and the fact we can stay with a friend, and not have to sleep in a tent, makes it a meeting we love to race at. Sadly the racing did not deliver for Vinny and we now know that to get to where we want there will be hard work, sweat and pain. But we are determined to get there!!
