Re: Provisional 2013 race calendar....

Obviously people consider their own position primarily, but overall they are quite evenly located , 2 x south, 2 x central , 1 x north, 1x east , 1 x west and 1x Spa

Re: Which circuits will Mono/F3 race next year & get good gr

Just a thought , but would the introduction of a new international circuit each season attract greater interest, in lieu of one of the low entry circuits that perhaps most people have visited before, ie a circuit in France in a nice warm climate !

Re: Which circuits will Mono/F3 race next year & get good gr

Personally i was very happy with the circuits for this year , perhaps removing the cushion of the two dropped scores may encourage larger grids ( every round counts ) but the removal of reduced points for lower entry numbers should encourage entries , the possibility of reduced points for the same t...

Re: Points system!

From the clubs perspective, surely the numbers at Cadwell would only improve if full points were there to play for and more championship positions were at stake. It would also make the final races more interesting . As Andrew stated , no doubt the comments have been noted , but please do not resort ...

Re: Points system!

Personally i agree with Jock , in CLUB racing , the time and expense commitment to enter should not be compromised by the entrant numbers , a matter beyond your control . The rules at present also enable a single competitor to withdraw and influence the points of all of his/her championship rivals ....

Re: security warning

Hey that's bad news Jim , i suppose we are easy targets for the calculated thief , as we all vacate area to watch or race at a pre determined time . Small consolation but well raced at the week end !

Mono Drivers , better than some think !

I am amazed ' Ibnm' considers the current Mono 2000 Champion an ' average ' driver ( not sure where that puts the rest of us in 2000 ) . If i progress to Tristan's ' average ' level within the next two years i shall be more than happy ! I have been testing and racing for two years only , raced and t...

Re: 2012 Mono 2000 grids

Not sure about the concern re the anticipated grid size for Mono 2000 in 2012 , maybe a Mono official could forward an opinion , or perhaps drivers likely to commit should declare their intention to assist . Personally , I intend to enter the Mono 2000 Championship. With ref to the FR2000 , if my me...

Re: 2000 restricters ?

At the end of last season I asked the question if my FR2000 would be able to adopt the 2007 newer style bodywork for aero improvement, the request was considered and rejected by the board , I was advised no amendments to the rules for 3 years , respected the decision and got on with it. I have since...
