Hi John,
I hope we will have some Mardaves again although the committee will be dicussing this next Tuesday. I can't see a reason why they shouldn't run in with the mini's again - they seemed pretty much equal on speed.

Hi All,
Just thought I would say my 6 pennyworth. Over the last few years you have run the championship 8 from 10 rounds. Most Clubs run 8 from 12. Therefore 7 from 10 would seem to be the way to go. This should/might help racers who might not be able to make all the rounds and also keep them racing till the last round.
The other thing is about the the Heat listings. Last year this seemed to be a problem right through the championship. I think you should go on the final result from the last years champ for the first 3 rounds and from then go on the actual average points which the results show on the right. This should stop all the issues with "I should be in this or that heat". If drivers turn up from other clubs and have NEVER raced at West Kent, then they need to prove that they can drive. OK they might be known as a good driver but you need to reach a happy medium not the bottom heat but not straight into the top heat. After all if they are good then they will get into the A final anyway, if you see what I mean. Just trying to keep everyone happy.
Cheers Andy.

We used to do 7 from 10 but we decided to changed it to try to encourage people to complete more rounds.

Following the Committee meeting yesterday here are a few of the important points about the winter series on carpet.

Classes raced will be :-

Stock - 13.5/27t
Super Stock - 10.5/19t
(Tyres as per last year i.e. any Sorex is acceptable)

Mini's to include the M05 Chassis - £50 max RRP on speedo

WGT's - max 10.5/19t, 1s only or 4 cell, World GT spec tyres, GT bodyshells only - no LMP shells
The WGT's will only run if there are enough prebooked and prepaid to make at least one heat viable. If there are insufficient then they will be withdrawn.

The plan at the moment is to run:-
3 heats of Stock
1 heat of Super Stock
1 heat of Mini's
1 heat of WGT

Advance booking will open later although places can only be reserved by booking and paying in advance. For those who pay in advance for the complete series a discount will be offered. For those who would like to book but would rather not pay a lump sum they will be able topay one meeting in advance to secure their place. When you pre-book you will pay for one meeting. When you attend that meeting you will pay for the following one so you are always pre booked for the up coming meeting. The refund policy will operate as per last year. More details will appear nearer the time.

Thanks
Brian

Excellent news Brian, just a small question "when is booking likely to commence"?

Looking forward to another great tournament

Cheers Paul

Paul, sorry but at the moment I can't be sure.

Ian, no - the committee decision was for no Mardaves.
