    Default Nunney quarry

    Anybody remember going to this quarry a few years ago?

    It was a very very good and cold day out. Not too far and so many different surfaces to bash and race around on. We only explored a small area of this quarry but looking at google maps of it we maybe saw about 15 percent of it. Anybody fancy coming to see the rest of the place?

    It's about an hour from Bristol depending on how fast you drive lol

    Anybody fancy going around the New Years time?


    Cheers
    Jimjam

    It would be on a Saturday or Sunday for me as it's the only times I can get free :-(

    Will be a great day out for anyone that comes. The more that come the better it'll be :-)

    I remember the place very clearly. What a bash spot but it's brutal on the cars. The whole area is one big Rc gymkhana

    Yup, pretty brutal but they were the days when RPM arms and other strength mods weren't out lol


    And I think we were all a little younger and trigger happy haha


    Anybody got a preferred date in January?
    I'm thinking we could make a full day of it, like a small BBQ for food and warmth and maybe a few small prizes for special stuff?

    Yeah I'm looking forward to the crimbo indoor :-)

    I was thinking the second week in January so 16-17th?

    Give us a bit of time to save up and get parts for when the quarry destroys us?
