It seems the Snell 2010 standard for helmets has been withdrawn for 2024, so check your helmets (and extinguishers, harnesses) are in spec and serviced. Don't leave it until the last minute!

This is a handy guide: https://www.classicsportscarclub.co.uk/post/helmets-and-belts-notes-from-the-scrutineering-bay

(Just noticed mine's a Snell 2010 so I'll be shopping for a new skid lid soon)

This message was received by the club - can anyone help?

Hi there,
I am writing to ask if you would be able to put me in touch with a team, or a few teams that may be willing to help me gain some experience in the field of motorsport. I would love to help out and learn about car setup, and issue management. It would also provide a great opportunity to talk to drivers and learn from them as well.
I am a student, currently doing an integrated masters course in mechanical engineering at Southampton university, currently an active member in a formula student team. I am also in the process of getting my first racing license.
I apologize for wasting your time if this is not possible but would greatly appreciate it if this could be arranged.
Thank you for your time,
Jack

I have been made aware of two current spec race cars for sale.

Both raced in the 24 hour last year. Both are fast and capable cars, and both are very tidy and well maintained.

The Iceni car (#60) will be for sale soon, and is located in the Norfolk area.
The Rally Racers car (#68) is for sale now and is located in Cumbria.

Both are ready to race in the sprint races, and there's still time to put a 24 hour entry in!

Please get in touch with me via private message and I can put you in touch with the owners.

George Edwardes: Looking to compete in a few events in 2023 before returning full time to racing in 2024. Would be interested in competing in the 2c4 cup - would you know of any teams with drives available? Have a full MSUK race license and have previously competed in British Rallycross on and off for 10 years. georgeedwardes @ msn.com

Please find attached the final entry form for this year's race. *SAVE* the document first, then open it and complete it, and then save it again and sent it to [email protected] as an attachment.

Please ask your drivers if they are members of the racing club already. If they are not members, ask them to join online at https://2cvracing.org.uk/join-online-event - OR, if you want to pay for the membership of your drivers as part of the entry fee, please add £60 per driver to the total fee payable, and fill in their details in section 4.

Additionally make sure at least one driver is a member of BARC. There are weekend memberships available.

The next payment for the early bird scheme is the 1st of August. For most entrants, you have already paid £500, so the remainder is £1850.

Races (not 24 hr) / Pembrey 2022

Timetable v1: https://www.barc.net/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/HQ05-Pembrey-7-8-May2022-v1.0-Published.pdf
Timetable V1.1: https://www.barc.net/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/HQ05-Pembrey-7-8-May2022-v1.1.pdf

NOTE: This is one of the meetings where we have a 20 minute race as well as a 15 minute race. The 20 minute race is to be held on the Saturday according to the draft timetable. On the entry form the 20 minute race is shown as the 2nd race, so I will swap the lists over when I send them to the BARC.

So in other words, if you have entered 'race 2' of the weekend at Pembrey, you will be running in the 20-minute race on the Saturday.

Technical / Competition numbers - links
April 12, 2022, 10:55:16
I seem to get asked about competition numbers a lot, and how to get hold of them. The normal answer is 'ask a sign shop for cut vinyl', but if you want to just buy online and have them delivered, here's some useful links:

Section J of the MSUK yearbook, which describes the specification of the number backgrounds: https://www.motorsportuk.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/146-165-Vehicles-J-2.pdf

Our regs override this in some areas:


  • the number backgrounds need to be reflective white vinyl for the 24hr.
  • additional numbers are required to be displayed in the left side rear quarter window. Ideally these should be fluorescent yellow/orange
  • Decals for above and below the number background - currently there is only one, which is the "2cvparts.com" sticker, which needs to be above the number background. These are available from Roy at ECAS.

Links:

White reflective vinyl for door squares: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300772011310?var=600055717705 (should do both sides)

Ordinary door numbers (9 inch/23cm): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184096272079

Dayglo yellow vinyl numbers (150mm high) for rear quarter windows: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184102079778

Other sources are available, and providing these links is not an endorsement of those eBay sellers in any way. Just might be handy for those in a rush :)
