Good morning everyone

It is with great sadness that I announce the cancellation of the Jamboree event. As we near the point of no return for cancellation of the track at no cost, we've agreed as a committee to pull the plug on the track day, due to very little interest from the club.

As it stands, we would be in the hole for R50 000 for the track day and various other costs, and up and until this morning, we have had 2 registrations for the event. The club encountered this same issue a few years back at Kyalami, and it left the club reeling for a while recovering from the financial hit.

I cannot put the club into this position, and the descision was definitely one made with our minds, rather than our hearts.

Due to the vast number of events planned for this weekend, we will not be hosting an event for October.

Our next event, will be the AGM combined with our final breakfast run for the year, on 20 November

Peace

Wow! I'm shocked

I was thinking of entering the track day, but when I saw there were only 30 places I assumed they'd all be filled already!

As disappointed as I am, I fully understand the decision with so little interest shown and so much money at stake.

Plenty of comments from anyone and I ask that you share your thoughts...

I'll ask one question though...

It's sad. I kind of hoped there would have been a pre-warning to get registrations in before having to cancel. That would have made me get my ass in gear and send the form. :cry:

Normally registrations would have been flowing in. 2 registrations to date


Makes sense to rather call it off

I fully agree with the decision made. I was also worried about the lack of interest on this thread. Told me something.

Datsuns do break. Kyalami is tough enough, Kyalami and Redstar in 2 days becomes a problem.

Understand the decision. Was not aware registration was so poor and cancellation imminent. Know for a fact Joggie and and would have been attending.

I guess the safe option for a track day could be Zwartkops SuperTraxSunday @ R500 for the whole day. Next one is 13 Nov.
