Important Stuff: Hotwire's Feed
 
Hey folks, I enjoyed a taste of the normal life last weekend and went along to the Re:Fuel Open Day at Mansell Raceway in Honiton. It was great to see some familiar faces after all this time and breath some fuel back into the lungs. I'm working through the photos and will be sharing them with you on the forum, and hopefully next time I'll have something more suitable than my low daily working! 
 
This weekend we should have been at Shelsley Walsh for the RR Gathering. If like us you want to reminisce on last year's event, take a look at the Retro Rides Gathering 2019 : Official Video.
 
The good news is that we will be back, be sure to put the 21st - 22nd August 2021 in your planner! 

See you in two weeks!
