Mono 1000

Are there any Mono 1000 drivers on here? If so, how many of you are able to get down to the class weight limit out of interest? Thanks, Myles

Hi Miles, you could ask the same question of the Classic class!

Hi there,

Some of the Jedis have steel floors - depending who drove them before (to bring their weight limit up) so check that. What does your Jedi with you in it weigh? I do have a set of full carbon front and rear wings that I might sell. I weigh 75 kilos and my Jedi is right on the limit..

I weigh about 85kg with kit and we get the Anson within about 5kg of the limit - 565kg. So If I lose a bit more weight we'll be there :-)

I think a Vauxhall Lotus is lighter...

Interesting. Once I switched to radials I would never have got my RT30 to 560kg without spending silly money lightening components. I was 75kg then.

My Reynard is usually 24 kgs overweight. At 86 kgs I don't consider that I am overweight, but could loose the odd kilo or two granted. That makes the car weigh around 500 kgs give or take, so you need to be a very thin chap to make it at 560 kgs. Just saying!

Maybe we should just stop having the baking GP, then we will all be below the weight limit....

Actually no...
