Yeah, I know what you mean. The club I race at, Eastbourne, can be struck by bad weather, which isn't always fun, but the spirit of the club means the members turn out anyway and just have a good old chat and watch those brave souls who want to race. Many of them learn the important skills of smooth lines and throttle control that only comes from racing in the wet but pays dividends when it is dry.

The good folk down at Eastbourne have even invested in a Mini-z track for those that don't want to race in the wet, it's probably as big as the Horsham track

I don't know why you're having a dig about those people that prefer to save a few quid, we're in a recession you know and every penny saved in repairs can be spent on race entry fees
