Further to the announcement from MSV that visitors will be able to attend race meetings from 11th July, MSUK have emailed clubs to confirm the same. That means visitors, helpers and families can accompany our drivers to race meetings from that date. Excellent news.
Hygiene and safety measures will be in place. Remember that drivers will be responsible for their group. Still limited to 4 tickets including children and a lot more paperwork.

Woaw, new cars coming out of lockdown thick and fast. Bernie Chodosh tells us his 1960 Kellison should be finished for racing next year. Small block Chevy with 6 Stromberg 97’s carbs. T56 gearbox and a 9” back axle.
This remarkable 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air short-track oval racer was at the track-day with us at Snetterton 17th June 2020 as lockdown started to lift…
Steven Anderson, our new civil surveyor friend from Lincolnshire, gave his #55 Chevy Bel Air a shakedown alongside other V8 heavy metal at the track day. The perimeter Late Model chassis by Hitchcock was a regular racer on Mid West USA short tracks. More recently a 1955 American Chevy sports coupe shell has been put on. Power is from a small block Chevy, 383 6.6 litre with a single Holley, HGI distributor and Pertronics ECU.
Steven has completed the rebuild and is presently bringing it up to MSUK requirements before a red and white paint job and circuit racing with us.
Warm response from Bernie Chodosh… “Brilliant. Great to see his car on the track . When out , this will bring a lot of attention to our series.” Cheng Lim adds “Good work! I love a 55!”
