Congratulations to our two championship winners for 2013!
Jason Anslow in Sportsman, winning in his Rookie year with his Back To Basics Beetle, and Matt Attwood winning Pro with his glorious-sounding Supercharged Rover V8-powered Type 3 Fastback.
Also congrats to the runners up - VWDRC...

Well that's it for this season... The AGM was on Sunday, new committee for next year (w00t I'm on it :lol: )... 2012 is gonna be a HUGE one for the club, we've got so many exciting plans, TWENTY FIVE YEARS AND STILL GOING STRONG :D
I wasn't able to make it to many rounds this year, such a shame...
I was just wondering why I don't see more 911's drag racing.
I understand that the Beetle has been so successful due to light weight, and a rear mounted engine giving superb traction off the line.
Shouldn't the 911 be equally as good?

I'm not racing as I'm doing a Triathlon (just down the road in Stratford), which is lucky really, as my car is broken :(
