So we held the last race meeting at Hinton Hall on Sunday 14th May 2017, unfortunately with the sale of Hinton Hall we have now lost our venue. We are on the look out for a new track so if anyone has any ideas or leads don’t be shy get in touch with someone on the committee.

 

The last race meeting was a brilliant day, loads of racing, thank you to everyone that came to race, club, league and visiting drivers, it was nice to see and most appreciated…. lastly thank you to everyone that put themselves out and has helped out in someway to run the meeting’s this year, without you all we just could not do it. Cheers, Boggy

Pushers Memorial Meeting 25.09.16 ~ A message from our Chairman

Well I can’t thank everyone enough for coming to today’s race meeting in honour of our old friend and club member Geoff “PUSHER” Farmer and making it a terrific tribute to him, he would have been so proud of all the North Shropshire members who did there bit to make it a great tribute, also thank you to the visiting drivers and members of other clubs, the racing you put on today was some of the best we have seen here, Pushers family were so overwhelmed by the show of support for a great club member who we will miss so much. When I saw all of you coming out on to the track following the tractor then parking up for the tribute and ashes scattering I was so proud and choked by it, thank you all once again. Congratulations to Dan Mackenzie on winning the Champion of Champions race and being the first winner of the “Geoff Pusher Farmer Memorial Trophy”. Terrific drive, also a great drive by Tom and Connor Pipe 2nd and 3rd in champ of champs so close to winning it Tom, awesome drive by you both.

Rest in Peace Pusher 18th July 2016

18th July 2016 ~ Ernie Ashley Club Chairman

Well this is a very sad day for the North Shropshire Grass Track Car Club. It is with a heavy heart I have to tell you of the death of our joint club president Geoff “PUSHER” Farmer this morning at 4am. I can not tell you how much I and the majority of the North Shropshire members will miss this great man, who has been a working member of our club for over 42 years. I want to send on behalf of the club our deepest condolences to his Wife Mavis and all his children and grandchildren.

23rd July 2016 ~ Ernie Ashley Club Chairman

It is now confirmed that Pushers Funeral will be at Shrewsbury Crematorium on Wednesday 10th August at 2pm, dress is optional, no black. Race Suits would be good if you wish as the Family would like us to wear them, the bearers for Pusher will be Chris Smith his good friend of many years , Martin Gould, John Gaffney, Dave Evans, Joe Pipe and Myself. At Pushers request there will be a Wake after the Service, venue to be confirmed at a later date. Any donations will be divided between Whitchurch Community Hospital and The Severn Hospice. Hope to see you all there to give our old Mate a great send off.

3rd August 2016 ~ Ernie Ashley Club Chairman

I have just spoken to Mavis, Pushers wife and she thanks everyone for their messages and she said she would like all those who attend his funeral next Wednesday to go for refreshments afterwards which will be at Shrewsbury Town Football Club, it is only down the road a short way from the crematorium.
Can I ask that as many of you that can attend Pushers funeral and lets give him a send off He and all of us can be proud of.
I would like to inform you also that Pusher wanted his ashes spread half at his home in the fields and half at the race track which will be done at our final meeting on September 25th and the meeting will be held in his memory, the club will be getting a Cup in his name to be raced for in a champion of champions race at the end of the meeting and annually thereafter, I can honestly say he would have loved that, so can we do our best to promote the meeting around the country so we can have a meeting he would be proud of, we will be donating money from the meeting to the 2 charities that Mavis has specified. 

11th August 2016 ~ Ernie Ashley Club Chairman

On behalf of Pushers family i would like to thank all those who tured up to give him a send off he would have been over the moon with, now on to his memorial meeting on the 25th September, hope we can get a great turnout at that too.

 

“Slick” 2nd Qualifying Round

“Slick” is a word I have never used before on this website 😆 but for me it sums up the 2nd Qualifying Round at North Shropshire held on Sunday 15th May… somehow we seemed to have it all, weather, great cars, clean racing, great marshalling, minimum of delays… all in all a great day :mrgreen:

 

Ernie and the track team had done a great job getting the track in tip top condition and for me it was a totally different track to the 1st meeting of the year and a job well done :)

 

We had ‘numerous’ photographers at the meeting such as; Kris Farrington Motorsport Photography, Andrea from AB Snapshots and Randyman ….. check out their facebook pages to see if you were snapped!

 

Thanks to everyone that helped to run the “Slick” meeting, see you next time 3rd July. Boggy
