    Default Free Hovercraft Driving Sessions at Towcester

    At Towcester we will be offering something different.

    My Scat and one of Chris's F25's will be available for anyone to have a 15 minute driving session IF they become a member of the Hovercraft Club of Great Britain.

    Six months membership is offered from only 15 for an individual and 20 for a family (up to 2 adults plus two children). So if two adults were to take out the family membership it would mean that both would have the chance to drive for 10 each, not counting rides for the children. Also there will be all the benefits of membership such as, a monthly magazine for the family, access to member only sections of our website and, at Race Meetings, all the usual member benefits of access to the paddock, camping area and the social events in the evenings. If they want to get really close up to the racing they could also get involved with Marshaling and if non-racing use of hovercraft is more interesting then there are also the non-racing events that are open to them. Sounds pretty good value to me and, of course, if they want to take out the normal membership for 12 months then it would be even better value.

    As you will have worked out, this is a drive to increase membership of the Club so please spread the word. Bookings are being taken for the driving sessions which will start at 10.00 each day and last for 15 minutes. Obviously full driver training will be given in our usual way. Pre-booking is possible, and advisable, if you would like to contact me on 01425 610775 or 07711 560347 and it is suggested that sessions earlier in the day are best to avoid the busiest times.

    Also, Kip and Josh will be helping with the driver training BUT if you would also like to help with training or meeting and talking to the people who want to have a go then, please, give me a ring.

    Note that this offer is not connected in any way with David Kemp who will be supporting the meeting by giving rides to people who do not wish to become members.

    See you all at Towcester.

    Bob Beech.

    I can understand some peoples concerns about wanting drivers to be experts in staying in their craft when on water, especially if they are involved with introducing possibly one of the longest/fastest water courses of the season. However, at Towcester, I regret that I will be unable to assist with this as my craft will only be used for land based training.

    Sorry.
