Re: Rain Lights

And there I was thinking that the function of a red light was to let the scrutineer check the battery isolation switch............ :D

Re: Calander!

Stephen's correct, I read somewhere that Thruxton is limited to 16 noisy days a year (I won't swear to the figure but its approximately correct). Effectively, all available dates are taken. It is equally difficult to get a trackday at Thruxton, when a firm advertised a trackday I tried to book a pla...

Excellent David. Can we lift it for publication in Startline? Pigpen wrote: what's feduciary mean? Trusteeship, I had to look it up! I am just grateful that we don't do lydden anymore. I am told that Lydden is improving but one of the attractions of racing Monoposto is that we travel round the circu...

Re: Calander!

'No Brands, No Cadwell' I am not party to the decision making progress re: Calendar, so these opinions are in no way official. MSVR believes that the 1.2 miles of its Indy circuit represents an exceptionally valuable bit of tarmac, they may be correct but their prices for Brands would take the entry...

They say that some reports provide more information about the writer than the topic. :D

Re: Who can use out of date seat belts?

My brother keeps in touch with club motor racing matters in the Antipodes and when he visited this weekend the subject of seat belts same up because the Australians have published research that shows that there was no significant deterioration in the performance of seat belts of appreciable age. Thi...

Re: Rain Lights

As someone that sometimes signs themselves 'impecunious motorsport', readers can be assured that I am not flippant about any expenditure. I think that there is a valid question to be asked about LED rainlights. While I recognise that they are better than lights with tungsten bulbs, are they bright e...

Just on a point of interest, last time I used my trackday car it broke a spherical joint at Mallory. Obtaining a replacement took me to what used to be Hewitt Motorsport and into Everyman Racing's garage. To my surprise the garage was mainly populated by FVLs which seem to have had their original fu...

All this discussion and not a mention of Mono1800. But we all know that it is the most sensible way to start. :lol:

I think that Samier is overestimating the sensitivity of the directors and has probably demonstrated that he is also suffering from the complaint! Two good points have been made by directors. The first is that one of the main functions of the club's website is to disseminate information to competito...

Stephen is correct in that Tony & myself write the majority of race reports. In my case I write the reports as a service to the competitors, lets face it we like to see our names in print. However, reading race reports for a series where the club competitors are not known to one, is about as int...

I have just been in contact with the landlord of the 'Angel Inn' Larling. :lol: Location of 'The Angel Inn': leave Snetterton by turning left onto the A11, first left & left again. There is also the old, very quiet main road for those who wish to walk, the distance is less than a mile. The landl...
