Second classes,
If there is anyone intending on running a second class, they must have a replacement marshal for the day, or we will not be able to accommodate it. In previous weeks we have had to drop the trucks due to 4 of the 5 entrants wanting to run two classes. This would have left one heat with only 1 marshal. If this is the case we will do the same at round 4 and drop the heat with the least drivers that are only running one class. It's only fair to everyone that there are enough marshals to cover each round, so to keep things fair for everyone, we will make a judgement call on the day.

Loan transponders,
The club also has a limited amount of loan transponders. We will be giving these out to the new racers at the club. If you are intending on running a second class, but do not have a transponder for your second vehicle, you will not be permitted to use on of the clubs loan transponders. Transponders are an essential part of your racing gear, without one, it will be impossible to race.

Please charge Lipo's in the approved charging bags/sacks. The club will not be covered by the insurance, if there is a fire caused by a lipo that is being charged outside of an approved charging bag.

Driving standards,
The last few weeks have shown some real improvements. Lets keep this standard of driving going and try to remember the basics. Let faster drivers through, stop your car if you knock someone else's car over, if you have cut the track, stop and count to 10 before setting off again and try to be considerate to everyone on the track. The fastest way to drive an RC car is to keep it on it's wheels!

Quite simply, marshal others as you expect to be marshalled. Be fast, but be safe! The rostrum is a 'quiet' zone. Anyone shouting at a marshal will have times removed and/or a penalty given. It's not the marshals fault that you have crashed, so please don't shout at the guys on the track that are trying to help you after you have made a mistake. Hi Vis safety jackets are provided and must be worn. YOU will not be covered by the BRCA insurance if you choose not to wear one. If there is any confusion on this, please refer to your handbook that came with your 2015 BRCA license. Only BRCA members are permitted to enter the track or the rostrum.

The weather looks dry for us on Sunday so we should be in for a good days racing! :)
