Re: Eligibility Question

Hi Tony I have certainly seen pictures of Mallocks in FF1600 trim (sans any enveloping rear bodywork). I think thay also built an early one off FF2000 car. In the Clubmans racing world of the late 70s, early 80s (ie pre Ralt RT3) the 1700 Crossflow engined versions had similar lap times to the F3 ca...

Eligibility Question

Just thinking out loud really. Don't consider this as the basis for a plan but I was just wondering if front engined "Clubman" type cars are eligible for Mono? You know the sorts of things - Mallocks, Visions, Phantoms etc. They are usually considered to be "Sportscars" as they tend to have enclosed...

I was in race 4 & 7 so it doesn't sound like it, oh well.

Re: Silverstone Photos

Andrew, did you take any photos of any of the other races on saturday please? I'm looking for photos of my white Toyota #48 in the Tin Tops & Sports Vs Saloon events. Thanks.

Re: GRID SIZES

Conan, it's not a safety thread but a grid sizes thread, its just that percetions of safety issues have been quoted as reasons for certain grid compositions. Has Mono ever trialled a Mono 2000/ 1400/1000 grid and a Mono 1600/1800 grid? Why not try that grid composition at Croft & Snetterton & review...

Re: GRID SIZES

I accept that Mono doesn't have to be concerned too much with spectator enjoyment, club racing isn't about the spectators, but surely all participants must enjoy close racing and battling for places, wherever you are in the field. Adding the bike engined cars will only increase the competiveness thr...

Re: GRID SIZES

Well the issue has made this weeks Autosport! Several column inches in the National Racing editorial no less. I doubt that Mono has achieved so much coverage in Autosport in quite a while. For those that haven't read it, Kevin Turner, the Autosport editor, watched his first mono race in a long time ...

Re: GRID SIZES

And if running spaceframe cars, particularly motorbike engined cars, alongside the carbon tubbed cars is so dangerous how come a few motorbike engined cars were happy to race alongside the Mono 2000s in the recent non-championship race at Mallory?

Re: GRID SIZES

Someone mentioned "going over old ground" earlier in this thread, particularly with respect to the safety implications of spaceframed bike engined cars (Mono 1000 & 1400) running with carbon tubbed cars (Mono 2000). Basically its generally considered to be undafe to run the two together in case a sp...

Re: GRID SIZES

IIRC, one of the intentions behind the new 1400 class was that conventional Formula Chassis could be converted to run bike engines and still race competitively despite them being heavier than the Jedi/ Speads/ OMS etc. This means that there is the possibility of a carbon tubbed, but bike engined, F3...

Re: GRID SIZES

Mono 1800s did used to race with the 2000s until about 3 years ago, for grid size matching reasons, but it was felt, then, that it was far better for them to race in the same race as the 1600s, as they generally were more closely matched in performance than they were when they shared a grid with the...

Re: £25 Late Entry/cancellation Fee!

The CSCC application of the late entry fee is specifically to encourage people to enter races early. The reason for this is that it is massively expensive to put on a race meeting and the club needs to know that it will be financially viable as soon as possible, and it needs to be able to plan its c...
