    2018 Regs and Explainations

    Just to pass some comments of mine for thoughts: I've been doing the speed series from when it started (I think). It was a long time ago now, 20+ years! When it started I recall 8 events counted towards the overall scores and there were 12 events in the calendar. This made it relatively cheap because there were fewer rounds to count and very competitive because everyone was there for the majority of the events. It seems now there are too many events in the calendar (35) and too many to score at (10). The fact there are too many events means you are unlikely to compete with your rivals so often. I accept motorsport is not cheap but reducing the number of events for everyone, not just novices, is one way to reduce costs and encourage more people to participate. Other championships where people are noticing there are a lot of Westfields in the event classes, appear to have fewer rounds. This might be something for the SSOT to look into. And another thing perhaps we should look at is going back to list 1A tyres. I still can't believe I drove my car all the way to the Isle of Man and back and got fastest time of the day on list 1As!!!! Who needs sticky tyres!!!

    Awards Do

    Booked but payment didn't go through on the 1st attempt via the store, so I did another transaction. Who do I need to contact about this to make sure I've not paid twice?

    FHR MSA stickers

    Very difficult to forge the hologram label on a HANS. Much easier to forge the MSA sticker.
  8. If we are coming out of Europe what has this got to do with us? We should be lobbying the MSA to ignore it, not to waste our license fees on pursuing this. Mind you the MSA appear to have plenty of time on their hands! Have a read of this, you couldn't make this up:

    Diff whine

    You need to drive it in 4th gear to isolate any gearbox whine. If the whine is still there is is going to be the diff. Drive the back of the car up some ramps, get underneath it and turn the propshaft backwards and forwards by hand. If there is a lot of slop the diff will have a lot of backlash which is your likely cause.
  14. I plan to be there Friday eve and Saturday. Can you put me down for the meal please Graham? Ta
