I'm sure there will be plenty of other fast people there.

If it had been closer I know Glenn Westwood would prob have attended etc.

An F5 is an F5

Me either!

Your either F2 or F3 and below??
surely you can't be both?

If your saying rules are rules and he can enter, how did he get in the F2's as an F5?

from my understanding. entries for the f2's is given from your regional standing. as ed was top non f1 he was top qualifier from our region. the f2 finals is not just for f2's, all other than f1 can enter but priority will be given to f2's. i dont beleive we filled our quota of places in the f2's as was, so ed would have no troubles in getting a place.

As Nathan says, I think myself, James Clifford and Michael Vincent were the only F2's who entered from the south-east, So this leaves spaces open to other formula grades from the SE, Hence why Ed could enter, Not much wrong with that I'd say although Ed is quite fast for an F5 lol

I'm amazed Ed wasn't an F1 in the past
He was always quick when he did proper racing ( sorry 10th)

Anyway my moneys on Robin its only been 3 years since he raced a 4wd!

again if you look back 2008 i think at broxtow jamie booth won wasnt he european chapion and didnt he make many worlds a finals in the 90s

wouldnt it be funny if massaimi came and raced the eos in the uk he would be an f5 too.

i think you should all put your efforts in trying to beat ed rather than moaning about it.

see you at the weekend

well said Stu.
we may not like racing against guys who have previously been F1's, but if they have moved back to F5 under the rules then they are just as entitled to race as the rest of us. Just means we have to up our game.

The F3's are generally won by some F3 who has developed at a fast rate anyway and secured an F1 during that season.

The only way round it would be to ban any F1 from dropping lower than an F2 no matter how long they have away from the sport, but that would be a bit harsh.

The rule is 5 years after losing your F1 you can drop to F3

I really like the fact that former F1's can run at these meetings. I learn more from these one off meetings than i do at a whole regional season.

I love watching the quick guys.

I also think there will be more fast guys at the F345's than there was at the F2's.

Remember that guys like Tony Edvoka are F1's but he gets to run in veterans.

Dave
