Chairman's Chat May 2017
It is with great pleasure as Chairman of Cirencester Car Club to thank everyone involved in the running
of our two major events of the year whether as an official or a participant. The Corinium Run and The Corinium Stages Rally ran within
7 days of each other and by an amateur car club made up of volunteers.
The Corinium Run. Once again the event ran on time and without any issues, providing our participants with a relaxing
friendly day out in the scenic Cotswolds. A great route, excellent venues and a team of officials that are professional efficient and
friendly, make my job as Clerk of the Course a pleasurable experience. The many positive comments at the finish prove that we
have the right event formula.
The Corinium Stages. An excellent day of competitive motor sport and Down Ampney Air Field.
The rally family always come together to help us run the stages, but without our small team working hard in the back ground to bring everything
together it would not be possible to run the event.
The key points that came from the event was that the competitors loved the flowing stages that allowed for great competition between both the
4WD and 2WD drive cars, the polite, friendly and efficient officials, and an event that ran to time with minimal delays between the stages.
My job on the Corinium Stages was to run the service in control with Chris Vout and to issue the next stage arrival times, tweaking times during
the day to keep the event on time. This gave me the opportunity to speak with all the competitors and take on board their comments.
A great effort at the end of the day by the few club members left got the venue cleared and the venue gates lock by 7.30pm that must be an all time record.
Once again a big thank to our club officials for all their time and effort, the other officials from other clubs in the area and for the participants
in both events for a great sporting attitude.
Martin Saunders, Chairman.
