Re: Hi and First Question (first of many I guess...)

Hello - Jon Reed here. So - congrats on getting the best car. You're already a winner in my eyes. Yes - you will need the right rollbar before you can take it racing and you could be disqualified in the paddock with no entry fee return if you don't.. There are two options - Jedi racing do a factory ...

Re: Mono 1000

Hi there,

Some of the Jedis have steel floors - depending who drove them before (to bring their weight limit up) so check that. What does your Jedi with you in it weigh? I do have a set of full carbon front and rear wings that I might sell. I weigh 75 kilos and my Jedi is right on the limit..

Re: Medicals. Licence time

Steven,

With you being a Doctor can't you do them at the annual dinner and awards ceremony and donate all profits to the club?

Just an idea /:-)

Re: F3 Rallycross

They did build a Jedi out of much stronger tubing with a full cage and very beefed up suspension and called it the BogTrotter. it was a grass track racer. Our Paddock friend John Kirby (JKS / Speads man) was mainly to blame... However they had the decency not to put it out with wings and wet cut sli...

A note from a Director

Dear All, I've been watching the comments on the FR debate with interest. However I have seen a few comments related to what appears to be no comments from Directors about the debate and I would like to tell you all why I do this and why I've not commented. I will talk about myself - as it not my pl...

Re: Entry fee inflation

Does anyone know what other people are paying for entry fees? I have been asking around the F Jedi racers and per minute/per number of cars its about the same as us. An entry fee is the track time per minute that the club is charged, divided by the number of cars on the track and I know as a board w...

Re: to those who use trailers

Oh - a few legalities... -Towbars now have to be euro approved so "just sticking one on your car" may not be entirely legal. -7500kg trucks "Not for hire or reward" can now do 70mph on the road motorways (its an ECU mod for about £50) -Only people with licenses from before 1997 h...
