MAC Members’ Day at Shelsley Walsh
The first Shelsley Walsh event of the 2020 summer took place with a full quota of 100 cars for the MAC Members’ Day on July 18th. Drivers had the chance to have six runs up the hill with whatever car they wished from the latest Gould GR59 of Sean Gould to a Cobra, a Mercedes Benz A Class and a Triumph Daytona motorbike; the variety and depth was great.
After a huge amount of work from within the MAC all went smoothly with members happy to be back at the hill enjoying the summer sun with all distancing measures in place throughout the paddock for the drivers and their one partner who were permitted to come along.
All present were beaming from ear to ear....
“We’ve had such a good time today. Thank you.”
“We’re so pleased to be back at Shelsley, a place we’ve been looking forward to get back to.”
“Please thank everyone for the work to make today happen.”
“Just wanted to say thank you for yesterday. It was a long day, but worth it. It was the first time I’d taken the Cayman up the hill but It was great. I thought you had organised the day very well. Plenty of room to socially distance. Thank you for looking after us.”
“I’ve been waiting to come to Shelsley all spring and summer but the wait was worth it.”
“Brilliant day. Thanks to all the organisers and marshals who gave their time and effort to create such a wonderful event under such difficult circumstances.”
“Great day, thanks for putting it on and running so seamlessly!”
“Thank you for amazing day, so glad to be back and in such safe conditions. See you very soon.”
The next event at Shelsley Walsh will be the Summer Spree weekend on July 25th and 26th and although this is without spectators, we’re running a LIVE stream on the Shelsley Walsh YouTube account with trackside commentary for those who’d like to experience the full feeling of Shelsley before we are able to get spectators back in to the venue. We are working on how we get spectators into Shelsley, something the Members’ Day has helped us immensely with as we at the MAC get a feel for the logistics of distancing at some tight pinch points up the hill.
