There was a discussion reference the 17th April race venue, which was originally scheduled for Bury Lido. Several members asked if all races could be at Bridlington? Ian Phillips agreed to discuss with the Brid Club to try to accommodate the request. Rob Physick raised the concern about the possibility of losing the venue at Bury, if no fast electric racing was scheduled there.

Paul Heaton advised the members that as long as some form of fast electric racing took place at the lake (i.e. club racing from Bury members), then he felt the venue would not be lost to the council.
