2017 Dates Clarification

Added: 18th January 2017 at 20:55

With regard to dates we did try to get all our categories into Silverstone alongside the truck meeting. However, the meeting was cancelled and trucks are not going to Silverstone this year. An offer to go to Thruxton clashed with the Donington date. Securing track time has been a very difficult task.

More Possible Races in 2017

Added: 18th January 2017 at 20:55

The centre is considering running a 30 minute non-championship Tin Top race at Brands Hatch on May 29th. This will involve a pit stop, so you can have either one or two drivers per car. This is the same meeting where there will be one championship race for the QMS saloons. Again we are looking at the possibility of a second non-championship race for the QMS saloons as well.

Clarification of Forfeiture of Trophies at 2017 Dinner Dance.

Added: 29th September 2016 at 7:25

Following comments made about the statement in the newsletter, we wish to make it clear that if a driver (or his/her team representative) does not attend the dinner dance then he or she will forfeit the trophy they have won. They will still be classified as the trophy and/or championship winner. It is worth noting that at the last dinner dance some trophies were not collected and no reason was given for non-attendance. This meant that the centre wasted money having the trophies produced and engraved. If a driver cannot attend for a genuine reason, please have the courtesy to get someone to collect your award.
