It’s coming up time to dust off those overalls, clean up your racing specs (the ones that make you think you are going faster that you really are), finish the maintenance that you have been doing over isolation (yea right), and ready yourself for the first club race day of the new season. Prepare for a great day competing at the Brooklands Challenge; Classic saloons large and small, the resurgence of the Gp2 Historic saloons, Sports & Racing, Single seaters, VCC and the mighty Cams bikers.
Covid Level 2 Requirements
There will be changes from the usual documentation procedures to comply with Level 2 requirements. In particular there will be a self scrutineering form sent to competitors to fill in so that it can be determined pre-meeting whether your car will need scrutineering. SCCC would also like those competitors who wish to take advantage of the free Friday testing for Brooklands entrants to book in beforehand- but not before the week starting 31 August (Click on the Levels link on the CMRC homepage for details). At the meeting you can expect to be asked to form part of a group with access to group facilities and no intermingling in order to comply with Level 2 requirements on group size at outdoor venues.
Historic and Classic Saloons Pre 78
Some of you will have heard that we are trying to resurrect the GP2 Classic Saloons. Wayne Perkins has been instrumental in working furiously to get this class up and running again and the following is a brief indication of what cars will be acceptable.
The class will be known as the Historic and Classic Saloons Pre 78 and will be for race saloons with an up to date Certificate of Description (COD) and will as a broad generalisation, be for cars with all steel bodies and exterior trim and with the majority of the interior intact. Running the original type of engine and gearbox on WOF standard tyres and original or + 1 inch diameter wheels.
If you think that this describes your saloon then write yes in the Schedule T&C box and then write H&C pre 78 in the SCHEDULE T&C GROUP box in section E2 of the entry form. This will gain you tentative entry into the Historic & Classic Saloon pre 78 group which will be confirmed on the day or by prior contact with Wayne Perkins. Depending on entry numbers the intention is to run a separate race or grid for these cars. If you are unsure or need clarification of your eligibility to compete in this class contact Wayne Perkins at [email protected]
