WRA Attempt - We've lost it - Lets try and get it back

Post by MR2Jay »

OK Guys

I think it is time to organise WRA3 I think - Just learn't that in December 2011 we were beaten by the UAE who had a convoy of 257 cars......

The gauntlet has been laid ;)

Couple of points we have to address I think.

1) Get a few other Toyota forums involved - Supra's, GT4's etc...
2) The above point will bring the need to address colours & or makes in the parade
3) We need to arrive at the holding area, not a mixed car park and then organise into colours at the holding area.
4) We need a timetable for people to be at both the briefing and back at their cars 20 minutes before the off
5) Volunteers needed for pictures / video and counting the cars
6) Double-up on everything! 2 people doing videos and counting. Heck, even Triple-up if we can!
7) Consider a circuit big enough. If we were to get 500 cars, is Silverstone big enough for the holding area and the cars on track?
