Race with Monoposto at Mallory Park this year!
Monoposto has been asked if we can provide a grid for the only car race meeting that is currently planned at Mallory Park in 2014
Key details are:
· Sunday 20 July
· Race organisers are CSCC (who we know well)
· Non Championship race for The Brownhills Glass Trophy
· One grid, all Monoposto classes eligible
· £500 cash awards: Winner takes £250: Other class winners £50; plus trophies for all Classes
· 15 minute qualifier, 20 minute race
· Entry fee £175
As most racers will know, the company managing Mallory Park went into liquidation last year, and the future of the circuit looked in doubt. However a new management team is now in place. They are bike-oriented but also want to ensure car-racing continues at Mallory. The circuit has missed out on 2014 Championship dates, but CSCC has agreed to organise this car race meeting.
On 1st March the "new" Mallory held an Opening Day, which enjoyed massive support. The circuit looks to be in good nick and it is hoped that a track licence will be granted soon. A few pics are attached, taken before the start of the Opening Day on-track displays.
As the largest single-seater racing Club in the UK, Monoposto feels that we should support the July car race meeting; in part as a contribution to helping ensure that Mallory is not lost to the sport.
The Mallory event has been scheduled for the day after our Oulton Park double header, and we hope that many competitors will be able to make a racing weekend of it. The Mallory event organisers are also planning a party for the Saturday evening. We will work with CSCC to schedule our Mallory qualification session on the Sunday so that there is time to refettle cars after Oulton. Also: if you enter both Oulton and Mallory, but need to withdraw from the Mallory race due to problems at Oulton, the Club will look benevolently upon Mallory entry fee refund requests.
However, the finances for the Mallory Monoposto race will only be feasible if we get a good level of support in terms of entries, and we would not want to take up track time at the meeting if we can only field a few cars.
Please tell us if you want to support this race:
If you fancy a unique weekend of racing this summer, and a chance to make a real contribution to saving an iconic race track, thenplease let me know asap if you are interested in entering Mallory. As usual we are not looking for commitment at the moment, but we do need to know if this is something that Monoposto members will support.
I'm going to enter! So form a queue behind me, please, for a grid place: 23 left!
