Re: Mono Budgets - How much do you spend per season?

£3600 + fuel for the race car. Can't be bothered to try and separate out towing diesel from everyday running so I don't bother. That does about 8 rounds (mostly double headers) and a couple of tests. Not quite as simple as that since I started off with a bit of a reserve pot the sized of which ebbs ...

Re: "Pro" Teams in Mono

Also while I'm having a whinge, the increased "professionalism" of big rigs means paddocks are overcrowded with little parking for late comers which is one of the reasons I couldn't face one race meeting last year and pulled out at the last minute from a meeting with one of the country's ...

Discipline, Justice, Fairness, and Other Concepts

And exacerbated by flawed flag marshalling. My recollection of 2000 Qualifying is something like: Course car: Yellow at Surtees for KM's stranded car on the apex - and next lap or two round Red / Yellow / Red around Surtees with the safety/snatch (not sure which) car stationary in front of the KM Da...

Thruxton

Thruxton - loved it, fantastic circuit and the weather helped no end too. What a way to go racing. Tops everything so far other than Spa. AMOC were organised and friendly and slick too apart from the usual scrum around scrutineering. Or maybe the price to pay for getting it wrong discouraged stretch...

"The move, from Saturday to Sunday generated no comment on the Forum, something that caused me considerable surprise," Although the late timing of the change was rather rude on this occaision the change suited my purposes as I was still prepering the car. I can however confirm that on seei...

Re: Formula Vee to run in Mono 1600

I think this diversity within the class would add an interesting element and I would support their entry. Although not a 1600 runner (nor anything else at the moment!) I concur. I have always felt Mono provided a club structure supporive of the 'run what you brung' approach and particularly in the ...

Re: Harness mounting points for 2009

But I don't think they'd know, because our seat covers up the mounts, and the seat can't be removed without taking out the gearlever - not a 2 minute job!!! If you can cover it up then maybe you'll be okay. Don't rely on the 'can't see it, won't get asked' approach. I have had to remove the seat co...

Succumbed to the zeitgeist alas - or, more accurately, not prepared to wager a race entry on persuading scrutineering my existing light is compliant. Bought a Lifeline one, delivered within 24 hours of ordering from http://www.polevolt.co.uk at £80.50 all in which is usefully cheaper than that avail...
