I can't remember where the current Blackbushe format came from but it is very challenge from a tactical point of view. Quite a difficult one to get right actually.

Sorry, for some reason I haven't been getting notifications from the forum again....
It was Rob Fulford that offered to organise at Odd Down I think?

Hi,

I have just altered the format of this before it gets sent out.
2016 RACING CALENDAR.pdf
(7.76 KiB) Downloaded 22 times
All I have done is made the seperation between BFPCR run events and others a little clearer.

Not sure whether to add in the scoutcar nationals as BFPCR cars are not eligible to race in them.

Same has to be said for Ringwood actually because the seat heights, certainly on the Apollo cars, are more than 100mm lower than the centre of the bottom bracket thus making them illegal for that race.

Steph, could you get some clarification on this please?
I would have to advertise an event to our teams only for them to get there and find they are inelligible to race in it!

Thanks,

Jes

Personally I wouldn't mention Bristol because I don't want the Federation associated with that idiot in any way.

I would be charitable and keep the Scoutcar nationals in then there (since Gary has involvement) and to try and drum up entrants for our races, maybe put a note about checking car eligability to cover us.

Bristol though since it doesn't have a date i would remove completely.

Also surely it isn't a provisional list since it was agreed at AGM?

It's provisional until this conversation happens :) .

Forging links with scout car would be good.
It's too expensive for Swebbelli at present (cost vs time in car I mean) but works well I think for bigger groups who have several sections who can all compete.

Changes made.

I have done a web search but can't find anything relating to next year's scout car races on line so I don't actually know where it is.

I am sure the scout association will also advertise our events on their website.
