Default Scooby Shootout - Your support is needed

This years Scooby Shootout is proposed for 3rd October run by the Straightliners team at Elvington near York. I am sure many of you would have been to the event before or TOTB at the same venue. The guys are looking to get a minimum of 70 cars competing on the 1/4 mile strip to make it a goer. Cost will be circa 80 for the day for unlimited runs.

Over on 22b we have 10+ names down so far so please pop your names down if you would like to support this event. We really need to support these events if they are to continue in future years

Many thanks

Clive

Will do mate, will pop all the names across once we get some significant support. Hoping there are still a few Scoob drivers out there that want to see what there cars will do over the 1/4 with a day out with like minded people.

I would like to add this is not about winning chaps, just get out there and have some fun. If you have not done anything like it before then don't be put off, we are not all big scary people

That's the point of the thread, we need the support to guarentee it's running, however I must say I am shocked by the lack of interest on Scoobynet. Do you guys just wash your cars these days and talk about how fast they are ! ?

I rarely wash mine, 'twas the only dirty rally-slag in the car park last weekend...

But I don't have the budget to replace the clutch, sadly...

My support will be as a spectator, as usual.

Unfortunately yes I do cos I cant afford to run the thing these days never mind throw a load of money at it for events like this...some of us arent that lucky. However I would still be interested in coming along to support such an event so thats was why I was asking.

Don't take it personally chap, was a tongue in cheek comment. People coming through the gates is important as those competing so thanks for your support, it is definitely going ahead so hope you can make it. Come and say hello on the day also.

I have now had confirmation from Trevor that this is definitely going ahead.

Cost is confirmed @ 70 which gets you access to the handling course also if you want to give that a bash.

Lets see if we can get a few more names to make this a top event.

Clive nice to see the price is lower that what was first quoted, for anybody watching this thread dont be scared give it a go I have done the last 3 scoobyshootouts and have really enjoyed the crack and banter the handling course is something else and with it been the final for the grudgement days that trev/straightliners have been running all year should be a good day I might add that the handling course isnt only scoobs it has classes for F/W R/W standard /modified /pro might even bring the old lard **** mondeo st out to play.

Bez it will be like old times in the scooby sprint championship .
I was away in Turkey at the beginning of last month and then when I came back I took the wife to Paris for a week and a weekend birthday bash at the house so been very busy I will have to check about the ring see if I can get off with good behaviour
