Re: Pirelli v Avons

Thanks Peter and Andrew,

Can I just clarify whether the Club F3 tyres are the same as the BRDC F3 (nee F4) tyres?

Thanks

Re: Engine Regulations

As an aside, anyone care to give some ball park figures for the different Mono F3, Mono 2000, Mono 2000 Classic and BARC F Renault engines?

Re: Eligibility Question

Well sadly my latent plan to enter some Mono race in what I thought was a Mono compliant front engined single seater has come to nothing. I asked about eligibility for a Clubmans type open wheeler last year but never had a written reply; I eventually caught up with the Mono eligibility Scrutineer at...

Re: Engine Regulations

Apologies for butting in from a long time departed Mono racer, but my twopennyworth: a while ago, Mono adopted the then redundant FVL cars and gave then a home to race in, they were ideal club level cars - robust, good spares availability, value for money and none too expensive to buy, quick enough ...

Re: 2 Day Meetings

Thanks all, I wasn't being entirely serious about the 1 practice and 3 races in one day, although I did do that when I used to race occasionally in the now defunct BARC-SEC meetings on the Silverstone Stowe circuit, but they were 2x10 min races and 1 x 15 min races on a 1 mile circuit. That was enou...

Re: 2 Day Meetings

I note that the vast majority of meetings are over 2 days with a practice and race on each day. This appears to me to be very "unfamily friendly" and a barrier to entry to those of us that have to carefully balance family time with our racing. I'm hoping to come back to Mono next year but I will ne...

Re: 2 Day Meetings

Thanks for the replies. I fully understand wanting more track time for the expense of travelling but I would suggest that 1 x practice plus 2 x races on one day is the best compromise. And if the cost is pro rata, as stated, then that day's racing is better vfm than 2 x practice and 2 xraces over 2 ...

Re: Ztech class

It's not a bad idea but will it really bring new members into the club and expand the grids? I reckon the club may have been better keeping mono 1800 as it is and introducing mono duratec.
