Re: Engine Regulations

Lets hope that James can get some positive responses to the questions he is going to bring up with the board. I have been very supportive of the club over the past 6 years and in my opinion the board has lost sight of the fact that the club is run for its members, who are amateurs, who race for enj...

Re: 2 Day Meetings

The whole point of having a Qualifier and a race each day is for exactly this reason. If you only want to do one day, you can. Having 3 sessions in a day is possible, if the members wish to pay an additional 50% or so a day to go racing. The cost of an entry is mostly driven by how much the club get...

Re: SUITABLE GEAR RATIOS?

Checking the final drive ratio is good advice
I do think that most FVL's will have a 10/31 fitted, this was what was mandated in the formula.
The FVL is a Reynard design with a Mk9 box in a Reynard casing.

Re: PIEDRAFITA

Hello Robbie

This is not a change to any of the regulations.
You will see that we have confirmed a 25mm restrictor, exactly the same as a FIA F3 engine.
In effect what we are saying is that you can run a Piedrafita, but you have to have the same rules as any other F3 engine.

Re: HANS devices (aka FHRs) to become mandatory next year

I get the safety bit. Anyway, we are in a risk averse society where arse covering is a profession for many. We have to just live with it. It's the thieving barstewards that can easily knock out a 'Clubman' spec 20deg HANS for £250 but a 30deg one is £400+ Of course, all single seater drivers are so ...

Re: Fuel Bladder Repair

Peter I had to have a new one in 2008, I seem to remember it cost me about £900 Premier were very easy to deal with and still have the drawings on file for all the Reynards.
