So here we are at the start of our second year at Automobile Racing Club, after an incredible first year.
A year’s such a short period in real terms, and it really is hard to believe all that happened in 2012.
Starting at Autosport in January, before we knew it we’d become Official supplier to the Silverstone Classic(Great event for those that haven’t been),traded at both major Goodwood festivals, along with a whole host of smaller shows, and finished the year opening our first retail outlet in thecentreMK. We’ve met some really great people from all over the globe and are so proud to see so many customers loving our product and coming back to rebuy with us – thank you to all, we promise to keep the quality high and the newness and innovation ever present for motorsport lovers.
Outdoors, we were lucky to avoid the worst of the rain last spring(except at Castle Coombe with the HRDC! – absolute drenched – thought April was just showers!)and the weather was fab at Silverstone only 2 weeks after the F1 was nearly washed out.
Finally there was the racing. Matthew completed his first year of National kart racing with S1 and FKS, and finished a creditable 20th, despite missing one round entirely. A real rollercoaster of a year, but great experience gained. All lessons seem to be well learnt, and a great autumn,with a couple of well earned wins lead to very real confidence that a successful season competing for the national title is in the offing during 2013 – We’ll keep you posted.
So finally to 2013 and Automobile Racing Club. With our stay at thecentreMK secured, we will again visit a host of motorsport events this year, even taking in the continent as we visit Essen in April. Silverstone in July will remain our main event, and an increased presence at Goodwood is likely. We’ll keep you informed as we seek to extend our high street offer – maybe we’ll be in a location close to you soon – we certainly hope so!!
Our site is now updated with our new spring 2013 range which features lots of new developments (Including much requested larger sizes, our amazing cufflinks with noise boxes and some fab watch designs). Keep on the lookout however, we’ve got lots of great ideas in the pipeline for 2013.
Have a great year!!
