Welcome to all the newest members who joined that night and we hope that you enjoy all your future newsletters to come. As we start our 36th year the club has a lot of plans and hopes to bring you yet another racing facility to be able to attend as a MARFC Fan Club day. A list of Fan Club days will be listed in next month’s newsletter. Best Wishes and a speedy recovery to Earl Baltes after heart surgery last month.
