GARAGES:

The current CV19 based rules as interpreted by MotorSportVision dictate only one car per garage at any one time, but that shouldn’t stop us “hot swapping” when someone needs to do some work on their car. My current plan is to secure a block of 10 garages (hopefully with a small discount, £25 per garage or so) for the 19 cars we have (+ Ranjan has his own booked :thumleft: ). I will dedicate a pair of garages to drinks/snacks/shelter operating in a CV19 compliant manner, leaving 8 garages for us to stow gear and for "hot" use (19 cars, 8 garages, 2.4 cars per garage). There is plenty of room both sides of the garages for the cars that are not occupying the garage space.

PLEASE confirm if:
  1. you are happy with this arrangement (so will cost you £10-£15 - I'll sort out payment later), or
  2. require NO garage, or
  3. you will book your own garage (or have already done so) ,

I can then make suitable arrangements with Nick Dougill for the number of garages needed and to group all our garages together.

Thanks.
