Solway Car Club (Norman Gowans) – Dumfries and Galloway

On behalf of the Solway Car Club I would like to express our appreciation of the financial support granted to us by the Training Trust relating to the upgrading of radios.

Communication is one of the most important issues that we have to cope with, and is also a lifeline (literally in some cases) when dealing with emergencies arising on events. Radios (and all other technical equipment) are renowned for becoming obsolete in short order, and so we were finding that our provision was not up to current standards and not ‘fit for purpose’ as is the current jargon.

The cost of upgrading was daunting for a small club like ourselves but the financial input from the Training Trust made all the difference – thank you for your generous support. It will not only help us as a club but also make events safer for competitors and marshals.
