Brands Indy grid structures and reserves. UPDATED

Posted on March 26, 2015

With the welcome news of Brands Indy being licensed for 2 extra cars to race this year (30 from 28) and the incredibly strong demand for places on the Monoposto grids, it is an opportune time to consider how our Brands Indy meeting is likely to be run.

Entry numbers (as at 28th March)

2000 = 20

Classic = 16

Moto = 15

1800 = 6

Dtec = 2

1600 = 2.5  (one Sunday only entrant)

Effectively 62.

On the face of it that leaves us just short of full capacity until we consider the grid split.

Using our normal Mono 2000 and Mono Classic as one grid structure we have 36 cars entered for a 30 grid maximum.  People entering this grid have been told they were reserves once we reached 28 (2  have become confirmed entrants with the extra 2 slots on the grid becoming available).

The intention is to leave the grids as normal. This decision means we have a number of drivers who are currently reserves for this grid even though the whole Mono event isn’t full.  The way we handle reserves is discussed in this link here, and we have confirmed that any reserves who go out for qualifying but then a place for them doesn’t open up, will receive an 85% refund.

To try and help give as many people who want to race the opportunity to do so, some suggestions:

  •  Entrants who might not race.

Our ‘member friendly’ entry process allowing people to enter without paying up front and cancel up to 3 days before the event  might mean some people who are doubtful for this event are currently on our confirmed entrants list.

Everyone is 100% entitled to do this, those are the rules for accepting entries, but it does leave reserves ‘in limbo’ until the last few days.

Therefore:

  1. If any of the confirmed entrants are really sure they won’t be making Brands (or reach that decision nearer the event), please let Rachel know ASAP so that a reserve can be advised a place has become available.
  2. If any confirmed entrants think they might not make the event but want to keep their options a little open, should they wish to voluntarily become a reserve then they will stay at the top of the reserve list (the previous reserve number 1 will have been allocated their confirmed place). As any further slots become available the new number 1 reserve (or more) will be asked if they want to pass at that time but stay as number 1 reserve and the slot will be offered to the number 2 reserve (who might also be a volunteer reserve) and so on.
  •  Doubling up.

Probably not most peoples’ first choice but if someone with a confirmed entry might consider only doing one of the days and offer the other day to a reserve, then we will waive the premium for a single day entry and just charge them 50% of the 2 day fee.
