2013 Tiedeman Trophy Series

2013 Tiedeman Trophy Series

The Founder of the Monoposto Racing Club, Frank Tiedeman, passed away this year. The Tiedeman Trophy Series aims to provide Monoposto competitors with more low-cost racing opportunities in addition to the Club’s very popular championship: the St. Cross Electronics Mono Championship. It is particularly appropriate that the Tiedeman Trophy Series involves co-operation with the 750 Motor Club, as Frank was a prominent member of the 750MC as well as being the founder of the Monoposto Racing Club. Frank was also a foremost proponent of low cost single seater racing, which is the objective of the Tiedeman Trophy.

After using the normal Monoposto championship scoring system, there were three drivers who had each taken win and fastest lap in their classes over the two Tiedeman Trophy meetings, Chris Dittmann, Jim Blockley and Jason Timms.   It was decided that the driver who had beaten the most other drivers in their respective classes would receive the 2013 Tiedeman Trophy and £500 of race entry fees, and that was awarded to Jim Blockley as his class was the largest when averaged over the two meetings.   Congratulations Jim.

Background

The Founder of the Monoposto Racing Club, Frank Tiedeman, passed away this year. The Tiedeman Trophy Series aims to provide Monoposto competitors with more low-cost racing opportunities in addition to the Club’s very popular championship: the St. Cross Electronics Mono Championship. It is particularly appropriate that the Tiedeman Trophy Series involves co-operation with the 750 Motor Club, as Frank was a prominent member of the 750MC as well as being the founder of the Monoposto Racing Club. Frank was also a foremost proponent of low cost single seater racing, which is the objective of the Tiedeman Trophy.

The Future

For 2013 the Tiedeman Trophy is registered with the MSA as a Series. The Club intends to progress an application for Championship status for the Tiedeman Trophy for 2014. This will be a short low-cost Championship which will extend the Monoposto racing season. It will aim to use some circuits which might not otherwise be visited by the main Monoposto Championship, which will continue in its current very successful format, with MSVR as our main race organising partner.

We will be discussing further co-operation and possible dates/venues to run races in the 2014 Teideman Trophy Championship principally with the 750MC, who with the BARC have been enthusiastic and helpful in helping this years’ Tiedeman Trophy Series become a reality.

We are very pleased to have the support of Frank’s family in developing this initiative, and we invite both existing Monoposto Members and others to race with us in this co-operative effort to provide more opportunity for excellent Club-level single seater racing at minimum cost.
