Any Other Business:
Autotest Charges - As permitt prices have gone up, it was suggested that prices for Autotest should go up to accomadate, any extra profit from the entry fees would be used for a marshals and competitors draw.
Speedway Club - One of the venues for the Rally Tests was recently vandalised when units were burnt out, one of quite a few attacks of the venue. It was asked could the club do anything in a way to try and prevent such further attacks ie: help with funding CCTV. Richard and Russell to meet Andrew (Owner), and discuss how WCMC could help.
Cone Levy - As cones are expensive, as a way of helping to fund getting cones in the future, could a levy of £1 be introduced for anyone who damages a cone during an event with a higher levy for totaly destroying one.
Juniors in Motorsport - Looking at getting more Juniors in to Motorsport by getting an old car and getting the youths to help rebuild it for competition, once theyve rebuilt it then they can compete in it.
