Given the meeting is over two days it will be very much like a Euro's event - much to the same sort of timetable, only both classes will be run during the two days (i.e. 2WD followed by 4WD).
Been looking at a Euro's timetable and we could go for 2 practice on Saturday followed by 3 Qualifying rounds with 2 qualifying rounds on Sunday followed by 3 leg Finals for all.
Qualifying will be Round by Round with 2 scores to count from 5.
If anyone has asperations of doing the "double" they will be doing a maximum of ten runs each day!!!!
As the poster says, the prize fund is currently 200.00 but we are hopeful for further sponsorship from local firms etc. so hopefully more prize money.

I know Grant meant that G but I couldn't resist the temptation to advertise further.

So in the same vein, anyone NOT going to either Belgium for the GP or Italy for the Euro's can come to Holbeach to experience what a two day Euro's "style" event feels like.

Given that there is money involved I believe there will be a controlled tyre choice. Something like Ballistic Buggy Spike, Schumacher Mini-Spike and GRP Cone-Spike for the rear axle. Compound being a free choice.
As to cells, only those allowed for BRCA sanctioned meetings as we will be running to BRCA 2008 rules. i.e. No Lipo's.

well i'm booked in for both classes (gluten for punishment) but i really am looking forward to the meeting, just hope you have all booked the weather :thumbsup: Thanks Charlie regarding the batteries, i guessed that to be the case but thought i would ask the question. Will be be having an announcment regarding the control tyres so that i can order some in for the meeting :o

Hi G.
The meeting is not a regional event but it will be run to BRCA regional level rules for 2008. That is any 2007 or 2008 Nimh Cells are OK.
