Re: Specials in Mono

thanks for the reminder Simon

I wil be sending my paddock form next week with my membership.

Reason for delay was whether to purchase a 40ft artic with 4 car awning so i can become more professional.

But in reflection i will stick with motorhome and trailer plus wife as mechanic.

Re: Specials in Mono

Thankyou Simon for you informed comments

Re: Specials in Mono

I thought Geoff fern tried it with a very lightwieght special built by Force but it did not work. Ref Paddock, MSV should appiont a paddock hitler as the do in BSB. Gareth runs the BSB paddock like a military operation, and it really works, no private cars allowed in paddock unles its a working vech...

Re: Silverstone GP

I would think the opposite excessive use of mirrors is a problem. when racing for a position the driver in front seems to spend more time looking the mirror andtrying to block the challenging driver, which often results in both going slower and allowing slower competitors to catch.Also how many time...

Re: Lap records

Andrew I see that the old lap records are listed in the results drop down under lap records. On reflection it would be quite difficult to list the old lap records in cars that now running in classic.
