MEV OWNERS 10th Annual MOGers Meet 2019
Celebrating a DECADE of Summer Fun days!
Celebrating a DECADE of Summer Fun days!
After the success of 2018, we're doing this again!
We're going to try and keep some consistency and run it similar to how we did last year. It worked well so unless anyone has any other great ideas, the details are as below. The price for the circuit has unfortunately increased, but not by a huge amount compared to what you get for your money.
The Date: Saturday 13th July - 8:30am to 4:30pm
The Venue: Curborough Sprint Course www.curborough.co.uk
The Deal: All day hooning around a dedicated sprint track with no other cars to hold you up or get in your way.
The Cost: 1st Driver £50.00. Additional Drivers £25.00. Passengers £5.00. Spectators £0.00!! (Yes, free)
The Format: Turn up, have a briefing, sign a disclaimer, jump in your car and go do some laps.
This isn't a track or race day, so we run the day as a "1 off, 1 on" format. As soon as the last person leaves the track, the next person starts.
This gives everyone plenty of time to show their skills of nailing the apexes or how long they can hold a drift, it's up to you. Once you've done your hot lap, come on in, join the back of the queue and go again!
0-60 challenge: Who has the quickest car? During the lunch break we will be running a competition to see who tops the leader board... the winners will get a special prize!
Show and Shine: Who's gone that extra mile? Who's spent more time polishing their car than driving? This most coveted award will be judged by a special guest.
Camping: It wouldn't be the AMM without this! The site will be open from 5pm on Friday evening for anyone wishing to make a weekend of the event. There will be a marquee to shelter in and I'm sure the beer will be flowing and burgers burning.
Food: There will be an onsite cafe open from 9am for food and drinks, and we expect the Ice Cream van to make an appearance. Picnics are encouraged, just not while out on track!
Extras: We're going to organise a photographer to catch all the action with the option to buy images. Tuition from our in-house team of real life racing drivers will be available free of charge. They'll sit with you for a couple of laps and give you some pointers. Just grab them when they're not busy.
Other Info: All MEV owners and builders are welcome, whatever you drive, but the track time is only available for MEVs, so don't bring the family barge along hoping for some track action. If your car can be driven, it should be OK on the track (subject to a once over from the organisers)
The boring stuff: As this event takes place on track, there are some rules we need to abide by. Before using the circuit all participants will be required to:
1. Sign two Indemnity forms
. This means if you have an off, you've only got yourself to blame
2. Provide a full driving licence
. In date please, and in your name
3. Be physically fit
. Driving fast puts extra stresses on your body, just ask Lewis Hamilton
4. Be a competent driver
. You've managed to build a car, we hope you can drive it
5. Wear an approved helmet. Arms and legs must be covered at all times
. Under no circumstances should you wear a mankini
6. Attend the Circuit Safety Briefing. The REALLY boring part. Make sure you've got a coffee in you before hand.
We've been in discussions with a Complete Kit Car covering the meet. They're going to send one of their roving reporters along with a camera, notepad and helmet! This is your chance for 15 minutes of fame. Baffle them with the technicalities of your build, dazzle them with your precision driving or just pull a goofy face when the camera is aimed in your direction.
Ok. I'm sold. Where do I sign?
