  • Imp 2020 National extended by a day!

The Goodwood Track afternoon takes place on Thursday 30th. To allow all those members wishing to take part or spectate at this eagerly anticipated event, the Alton Rugby Club facilities will be open from 1pm on Wednesday 29th.

  • Racing Challenge!

You may not be interested in competing at the Goodwood Track afternoon but the return of one of the regular events from 'old' Imp Nationals might well hit the spot. There will be a bespoke 4-lane Scalextric challenge over the weekend with a prize on offer for the under-twelves and a prize for the adults. At past Nationals this was always a popular event, get practising and be ready for some intense competition!

  • Goodwood Track Afternoon

A track afternoon at the famous Goodwood circuit in West Sussex is being organised. It will run from 12 noon until 5pm on Thursday 30th July with cars on track from 1.30pm. The spaces for this event have all been booked BUT there is still an opportunity for you to drive your Imp on the track. Spectators are welcome and at the end of the session all Imps and derivatives will have the chance to drive the circuit on a parade lap. This will be at at a cost of £5 per car, payable on the day. The whole afternoon should be quite a spectacle and provide a great photo and video opportunity. Come along and join in!

  • 7 Sept 2019 - Area Group Meeting & Meal

"A couple of weeks ago the offer of a lunch at the Alton Rugby Club was made by the club and the Lead Organisers thought it would be a great opportunity to invite a few local Club members around to the venue to see the site and to begin some discussion regarding planning. To start with we hoped for at least a bit of interest but, as the first few days turned in to a week, the list of interested persons grew to over 20. By today we had 31 on the list.

The tour of the fields and grounds was followed by a swift meeting and discussion. Lots of great suggestions were made and offers of help. The meal, catered for by the Rugby Club's kitchen staff to a very high standard, was enjoyed and lots of catch-up conversations were shared.

A little later in the afternoon, after most of the group had left, the Lead Organisers made use of the clubroom and covered the notes and ideas shared by those at the meeting. So much done; so much still to do. What is very apparent, though, is the significant interest there is in the National next year and how much people are willing to help."
