Starting to get a bit of a problem this. I need to know where the venues are so I can know if I need to book saturdays off or not and I need 6wks notice to book holiday??

We are another 4wks down the road, who are the clubs/people dragging their feet, I will happily get in the car and go and sort it out

Default 5 weeks to go.......

Only 5 weeks until the first meeting. It could be local to myself or it could be on the moon.
I already know at least 5 guys that have all changed there commitments from the short course nationals to other series.
That's not to say they will not attend any meeting. But just have changed their priority's
this can't be a good thing.

I was hoping to do quite a few rounds of the nationals this year, but not all. It's almost too late to book the time off now so i might have to rethink what I do this year

I don't really see the problem with not knowing the venues.

We will do all the rounds again this year and as we know the dates we know when we won't be around at home or work etc.

It is a little painful we can't book the hotels etc but I am sure the SC Chaps running the series are doing their best.
Silverstone have just been discussing running a meeting which is good for the SC Nationals and for our club (Silverstone Buggy Club) but obviously if the venues haven't got back to the organisers yet the blame isn't really with the organisers?

Surely it doesn't matter where the racing is as if you are doing a Championship you are supporting the Championship as a whole and not just the venues you like?
The SC Nationals needs to be supported through the whole series otherwise it becomes a none event in the last third of the Championship.

If the entry's keep falling we might be writing on Oople this time next year saying "wish there was a SC National this year???" and who would be to blame, the organisers or the competitors?

Looking forward to seeing a full grid in round 1 and onwards.

Regards Ian

For some of us its not about supporting the venues we llike but I'm sure I'm not the only one on a very limited budget where spending around £100 on fuel and hotel costs for one event isnt an option.

Because some of us run more than one class and more than one championship, although I'll be prioritizing the sc nats there's at least one track from last year that I'll be happy to give a miss to,if there's an option to do a rd of another championship

The issue I have is the fact that some venues are so far away I will definitely need the saturday and possibly Monday off work, so not knowing locations of each round is a issue as I have to give silly notice to swap weekends etc.

Also the date discussed on for the Silverstone round doesnt even appear on the calendar, either that or I wrote the date down wrong?

Thats a good question. Im not sure what happened to the sixth round that was showing in the dates initially.

I asked the question once the first dates were published if they were solid and the reply we had at the time was yes. They have since changed but personally for once I am happy with that as I now have less hassle booking them as I am only working 1 date instead of 3 from the previous dates that went up.

Some clarification would be useful, it should be 6 rounds really.
