Alfaholic should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Thanks for the provisional timetable Greem - I was just looking around the Rockingham & BARC websites yesterday for an update.

Tickets are only 10 from Rockingham (don't know if this will also be the gate price) so it seems like a bit of a bargain priced send-off.

It's looking to also be the best attended meeting in terms of marshals in years, perhaps unsurprisingly. Having spent several meetings a year since 2009 with only myself and a radio to talk to (and the occasional driver!), we're looking like having multiple people in every role on every post round the circuit

Entry list now released for the meeting. Not bad for the saloons, sports/GTs and one hour race, but only 8 for the single seaters.

Not a bad turnout for the last meeting, both of spectators & marshals despite the cold & wind. The last grid of the era...

I'll miss Rockingham, but I certainly won't miss climbing all the staris to get to the top of the grandstand!

There were over 100 names on the sign-on sheets yesterday morning! I was out at post 15, where the Steel Straight starts to head to Gracelands.

It was cold, it was damp, the track was greasy as anything in the morning but the drivers put on a good show and (on my post at least) we spent the day laughing our heads off, making jokes about the "last X in the last Y at the last meeting at Rockingham"

In the end, the last car to cross the line in the last race was a BRSCC Clerk of the Course - he wasn't trying to be last but he did have basically the slowest car of the that session, so winning definitely wasn't on the cards.

Emotions spilled over as we signed off, there were a lot of tears and a lot of people walking off to have quiet time on their own.

Tata, Rockingham, it's been fun.

You've got to be joking right? I used to race this track on the old TOCA Playstation games.

Such a shame another track is relegated to the pages of history.
