High Noon (Soccer) Showdown for ALMS Drivers
The Annual Drivers versus The Rest football (soccer) game will be played on Sunday (October 22) after the season ending ALMS race at Laguna Seca – writes John Hindhaugh (exhibiting dazzling control in the 2004 game, right).

All concerned will be delighted to know that we have secured the use of the School facilities close to the racetrack on the south side of South Boundary Road. We played here a couple of years ago and it is an excellent venue.

The surface is natural grass so please bring studs - we only have the field for a couple of hours so arrive between 11.30 and 11.45 for a 12.00 midday kick-off. Many thanks to Gill Campbell of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for help in organising the match. Further details and directions will be available at Laguna Seca.

All welcome - especially members of the press, officials and teams. Somehow the drivers always seem to find a full squad!

I trust that you will spread the word to all who can turn out. I must stress that this is a proper field not the nightmare of rabbit holes we 'played' on last year.

There is room for spectators so if you want to see your driving heroes in another light feel free to come and join us. English drivers will hopefully be displaying more talent on the field than that shown by the England soccer team in its miserable performance against Croatia. And the drivers are much more intelligent too!
