Re: CARTEK Flashing Rain Lights

I wonder if those opposed to flashing rain lights ( or the cost ) would be of the same opinion when racing at 130mph at a very wet Spa

Re: 2 Day Meetings

One quali and three races every time for me , why not ? Race prior acts as quali , What's not to like ...surely format is not to suit those who turn up one Sunday a season

Re: Engine Inspection

Fair enough , got that , but how would a lightweight F3 component be identified from a std component if they are identical in appearance ?

Engine Inspection

Being one of the three cars who have had engines sealed in Mono 2000 , prior to an inspection, and not being very mechanically minded to say the least :oops: could somebody kindly advise how an engine can be inspected without being completely taken apart. Obviously with access , components can be me...

Re: PIEDRAFITA

Fair comment Robbie....... could not resist the wind up !! Also a very valid point , considering the obvious and imminent issue of when the 05/07 chassis shall be permitted . Perhaps the date for 05/07 's should be considered at the next AGM , and plenty of notice ( months ) offered , if the 05 chas...

Re: PIEDRAFITA

Hey Robbie , so basically you would like, an input on the calendar , all Toyota engines banned , and to be consulted on any alterations to the regs prior to implication , :lol:

Re: Thruxton test day

I believe it's also £ 10 for a garage, if memory serve me well that's a bit excessive , need to bring your own garage door and candle !

Re: Monoposto 2014

Totally confused , is one set of new tyres per meeting considered acceptable within rules for Mono 2000 or not ? ..... do not agree with the guideline, but appreciate it must be there for some reason , but thought it was just that , a guideline .

Re: Monoposto 2014

Am i missing something , appreciate this is a Mgt request, but potentially what a load of extra work for the very busy admin team ! In reality who in Mono at present , is going to use more than one set of tyres per week end, unless they have a problem. Perhaps there are some new and very committed c...

Re: Monoposto 2014

In my opinion a good quality recognised rain light ( flashing ) should be insisted on, or made absolutely mandatory, having witnessed Steve Patanias incident at Silverstone , i honestly believe this could and should have been avoided ..........

Re: Monoposto 2014

Good calendar, surprised by the ' one set of new tyres ' ruling , does that include the tyres you lend to a friend ?....
F1 tyre Mgt meets Mono ! Now we can all blame the tyres .

Re: Silverstone race time

I agree with Jim , we were unfortunate , raced there 2 years ago and it looked like a war zone , but the race continued ! This year it all worked against us, marshalls appear to struggle with just a couple of incidents.
Very frustrating but a great circuit

Re: Silverstone race time

54 cars is just too many , was it seven or eight racing laps total in TWO races ?
It looks good on paper, but the format has proven to be a very false economy................
