Id love to do this as its not too far and an awesome venue.

Last year we held a Reedy style race, wich is all racing, no qualifying. There were 3 classes, F-1, F-2, and F-3,4,5 of which 40 maximum were allowed in each class.
The actual style of the event has not yet been decided for 2011. The BRCA are still deciding which style of event they will hold.
The meeting was not 100% full last year, I believe the F-1's was the lowest entered class, but we are hoping to have a maximum entry for this event.
Best thing to do is keep watching for an announcement from the BRCA:thumbsup:

From what I can gather Andy the majority of drivers didn't enjoy last years format and the Committee have listened to the drivers. I'm not sure how true that is though so don't hold me to it.

Hereford will put on a fantastic event to be fair, they have vast experiance in running meetings with 'old dogs' in Chris Bottle and Steve Davis :woot: :thumbsup:

Received my confirmation back from Charlie so I'll be there.

Bring it on

Ben, it seems like Charlie is sending the SAEs back by return of post (usually very quick at the worst of times) so if you sent an SAE you should have it back asap .... if not you will be guessing right up until you walk through the venues doors I think mate.

Hi All.
Closing date for this meeting is Friday of this week (7th January). In the unlikely event that the meeting is "full" I will contact unsuccessful entrants individually to let them know. Otherwise if you have enterred you are "in" the event.
We will not be posting an entry list on an open website as I see this very much as an invitation for any robbers to come and burgle your house as they know you will be away for the weekend.
There is little we can do if entries are "lost in the post" but from experience this is far more rare than you would think. This is why we ask for an SAE with your entry so that when it is returned you know at least your entry was in fact posted and received.

Charlie Fraser

Charlie, just a thought but as the BRCA now has a funky new website and it is possible to do your membership via electronic payment (a huge personal thank you from me for that, makes life SO much easier for me) can we not look towards central booking for such events in the future?

I do agree with the not posting a list thing but at least with electronic entries it is easy to know they have been recieved and processed.

Keep up the good work mate .... lets hope the BWOC is quite full if not oversubscribed!!!

Seriously guys n gals, this club really know what they are doing and a can assure you it will be the best BRCA winter meeting you have been to for a long time!!!

Just in my opinion...this idea of people (who ever the hell they are) reading an entry list to an event & then robbing your house is quite frankly absolutely bloody rediculous,I know we race toy cars but how many of us actually live alone anyway??

Hi All

Officially entries for the British Winter Open Championship closed today. However the event is not full and I am not all that busy over the next few days so if there is anyone who has missed the deadline but still wishes to take part get your entries in the post. You can PM or Email me to let me know you are posting an entry but of course places are dependant on receipt of fees.

Some new questions and some old ones...

Is there a shop?
Are there controlled tires?
What's the surface?

There's no chance of last minute cancellation due to low numbers is there? I'll be there if it's on!

CharlieF
17-01-2011, 10:35 AM
Hi Dave
No chance of last minute cancelation the event will happen.
Tyres are not controlled but indoors usually yellow mini-pins work best.
The club will need to confirm the attendance of a shop.
The track I assume it will be carpet or carpet/wood floor type mix.
Regards.

17-01-2011, 11:25 AM
I can confirm the track will be carpet/wood jumps etc.

It will be very similar to worksop last year

Hi Charlie
just a quick question

when are the doors open?
what time is booking in going to start?
what time is is first heat on?

sorry if I have missed this information on here but nothing on BRCA site or I could not find anything on site.

CharlieF
17-01-2011, 04:40 PM
Doors open at the venue at 0700am. on Saturday and Sunday.
Booking in will be the same as for any other National starting at 0730am until 0815am.
Practice will start in heats at 0800am - probably two rounds.
Drivers Brief after practice with Qualification Round 1 starting at or about 10am.
Finals taking place after 4 Rounds of qualification starting at about 4.30/4.45 pm.
And the winner will be...............

The lads from the Hereford asked me to do shop for this event and i can confirm that i will be there"TRACKSIDESPARES" racing both classes AND hopefully have enough spares inc tyres to keep everyone running all weekend.
If anyone wants to prebook tyres, spares etc, give me a ring on 07812 115259 so i can bag it all ready for you to collect on the day.

Really looking forward to event and see you all there:thumbsup:

Good point on the BRCA licence ... I sent mine renewal off before Xmas (via the website) and still have not had the licence! Time to follow that up I think.

Jonesy
19-01-2011, 10:08 PM
In terms of your BRCA Card, we had a Micro National on the 9th January and as Entries Officer I advised all entrants to e-mail Jacqui (not sure of the e-mail address). Jacqui was happy to respond to all emails to confirm that they were members and where and when and if the card was dispatched.

We were happy to accept the e-mail as proof of membership. I'm not sure if the 1/10th Section have an automatic process of checking your numbers on your forms with Jacqui or not? Something I'm looking at for the Micro Section

Hope this helps

How unlikely is it that i could get a entry this weekend? I think I've renewed by license via the online thing (not sure as im waiting for a reply) and i dont have an entry for the meeting itself. I was thinking about doing 2wd only.

Who should I be getting in touch with to ask?

Thanks

Just to make sure...the meeting has been officially moved to a new venue in the last two weeks.
It is now at Hereford Leisure Centre, Holmer road, Hereford HR4 9UD.

It is now 13 miles difference from the old venue, which is at Leominster.

Ive had a few people asking me if they can setup tables etc at the venue on the friday night.
I was not sure so thought i would ask. I would probably have thought it would be ok.

Let us know Cheers Nathan

I bet if those people are willing to stop and help build the track they could put their tables anywhere they liked lol

21-01-2011, 11:23 AM
Oh YES...many hands make light work :thumbsup:
Well..we will be there from 9.30pm as that is when the hall at Hereford is free to set the track up. I don't really see any reason as to why someone could not set their table up, but I can't recommend leaving any other stuff in the venue, as we cannot be held responsible for any theft etc..

Thanks

Yeah, all credit to Tony for great drives in all 3 legs with a slightly unfamiliar car and all the rushing around before each leg couldn't have helped either. Be good to see him at a few Nationals this year.

c0sie
23-01-2011, 08:44 PM
Thanks to the BRCA and all the hard working Hereford club members for putting on such a great weekend :)

2WD I was very happy to be the top "F5" and to have qualified 26th although I suffered in my final after "Oil-gate" effected all the polished sections.

After sticking all my electrics into my virgin B44.1 this morning and missing practise 1 I was even happier to be top "F5" again and to have qualified 22nd after about a year or so away from 4WD! Suffered again in my final after leading for a few laps after a tap from behind and my tyres starting to fall away :(

As a committee member of a smaller section I was very impressed by race control/time keeping and how professional Stuart was throughout the day without fail; calling cars to a finish, calling them off to start the heats, keeping us informed during heats and finals as to positions and all the other bits and bobs he did.

Thanks to StuMac, Bish, Sleigh and KRob for all their help, support and encouragement all weekend. You 1/10th offroad lads'n'lasses are a great bunch :)

After helping on scrutineering and doing track repairs on the Saturday, then racing on the Sunday, I would like to give MASSIVE THANKS :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: to both ChrisB and BigSteve for giving up nearly their whole weekend to getting the event to run, after all the stresses of finding a new venue at late notice. I would also like to thank Stuart, Paul and Hywel for being very friendly and patient with us, and also giving up their time for the whole weekend for us racers, away from families and loved ones.

Good track, good banter, brilliant racing from the top boys, hope to see some of you at some regionals this year :-)

Oh...and i got a pot :thumbsup:
