29th October sees the start of the Frostbite series. With the current balmy conditions it doesn’t seem right to mention the ‘frost’ word. Once you start having to scrape your windscreen you’ll believe it!
The number of races is down to two the first one pushing off at 12 p.m. and second at 2 p.m. Both handicap. As usual for any results to count in the final reckoning you must have completed half the series races plus one.
Remember to wear appropriate cold weather clothing e.g. wet/dry suit, gloves, hat, boot liners, spray top. Several layers are better.
Time to end the sandwiches and savour some hot grub between races!
