Intermarques 2014

Added: 11th November 2013

Following the accidents on November 3rd, the MSA scrutineers carried out a detailed examination of some of the cars involved. Amongst their findings they would like to draw our intermarque drivers attention to the points listed below. The references shown can be found in the relevant section of the MSA "blue book".

K1.3.1 - Drawing K6 including compulsory diagonal (K1.3.4) and door bars (Drawing K11g) (see also Q19.14.3) The latter can be removable - see definition of removeable - not on a latch like on one car last year.
K .2.1.3. The crotch strap must be mounted with a hook and eye type ancorage point welded to a plate.
K 2 in its entirety allowing for there being inadequate space for a commercial produced competition seat. The mountings as described in 2.2.1.
K 3.1.4 Large plumbed in extinguisher
K5.1 Rear warning light
K 9.1.1. Overalls
J 5.2.1 - No suspension and other listed components in the cockpit area
J 5.14.3 - Have generator and brake lights (plural)
Q 19.1.3 - Towing eyes. These must be clearly marked and be substantial.

The BARC south east committee have passed an amendment to tyre regulations 5.13. This will now say: Competitors are required to submit a self declaration form to the scrutineers prior to qualifying at each event. The necessary forms will be provided to each driver after they register next year.

Message from Richard Smith.

Added: 5th November 2013

"To thank everybody for all there help and kind support on Sunday. Especially all the marshals and medical staff for a fantastic service they all gave. I did suffer with 3 broken bones in my right foot and some severe bruising.

My Hans device was brilliant and I recommend that all drivers should wear one as I did not suffer with any major whiplash.

I would like to wish Jeff Simpson a speedy recovery and congratulate Matt on winning a hard fought and well deserved Championship. A big well done to Chris Brockhurst for coming a very close second, plus congratulations to my son Lewis on his first win!"

Congratulations to Andy Woods-Dean, Peter Osborne and Matt Simpson, who all won their respective championships today. This is subject to official confirmation following eligibility checks.

The drivers of the weekend were: QMN, Stewart Hutchinson Cannons Tin Tops, Chris Whiteman Intermarque, Chris Brockhurst.

The Avon tyre award winners were; Chris Brockhurst, Neil Jessop, Lewis Smith and Matt Simpson,

The best prepared cars were: QMN, Ian Butler Cannons Tin Tops, Glen Rossiter Intermarque, Malcolm Blackman,

So another season of championship racing comes to a close. Commiserations to those drivers whose cars were damaged today, and best wishes to Jeff Simpson and Richard Smith who both received medical attention. The other incident in the paddock is being dealt with.

The racing hasn't quite finished, as we need to field a strong team to represent BARC south east at Rockingham on November 16th. Last year we lost out to the cunning mob from the north east, so revenge is sought. Anyone who wishes to enter please let Ken or Rod know as soon as possible.

Another reminder is to start ordering your dinner dance tickets please. Sue will be working her magic to make it a great night, with some special surprises!!
