Spookworks back in business...

With 2012 now well behind us and the aftermath of the Spookworks New Years Eve party now repaired, all the boffins rounded up and installed back in the Spookworks biosphere and the Australian bloke found underneath the Spookworks billiard table safely returned to the possession of his embassy it is time to focus on 2013. 

Into the unknown we go...who knows what 2013 will bring?

Whilst the final touches are still to be made to the masterpiece that is the 2013 Spookworks calendar, a rough pencil sketch does exist and I can inform you that the current plan looks something like this....

Round 1 - Flying Fortress Stages, Kettering 17 March
Round 2 - London Rally of Heroes, Brooklands 19 April
Round 3 - Coracle Stages, Sweet Lamb, Wales, July
Round 4 - Brands Hatch Stages, Kent, August
Round 5 - Fat Albert Stages, Keevil, Wilts, October
Round 6 - Sunseeker Rally, Bournemouth, October
Round 7 - Tempest Rally, London, Nov
Round 8 - Rockingham Stages, Dec

Once again Spookworks are committed to the defence of their 2012 RAF Rally Champion crown hoping to further extend the record for most consecutive titles.  Although this year the competition look tougher than ever!!!!

For the record these girls did not partake in the Spookworks Sauna
But before we forget about 2012 lets just have a quick look at the numbers:
