Alright loons,

I plan to be there as the SDRCC rep. There's not much I would change from last years series, but I was determined to think of something so here goes.

1. An 1/8th electric heat if interest allows. (mainly coz I have just bought one after lusting after Doms)
2. Some sort of membership card for SORC, or even a spare info field within BBK that can confirm membership for that year.
3. SORC rounds to be held on the same week every month (first week for example)
4. All outdoor.

Nothing major there but thought I'd add my tuppence worth.

See you on the 19th.
PS. Is there racing either before or after the AGM?

I also propose the heats are generated by ability not attendance.

Heats are not currently generated by attendance. They are created from your "F2 Grade.

I would therefore suggest that race fees per meeting are £20 to cover the additional cost of trophies. If running more than one class there would also need to be an additional cost.

At round 1 I was in the top heat for both classes.
At later rounds I was in heat 1 because I had missed a few rounds due to work.
This year I am still an F5 because I didnt do the whole series.
Does that mean I will be in heat 1 all season?

Difficult one this, see where your coming from, but if you put yourself in the position of someone that has committed to do the full year and get a higher "F" grade to get in a higher heat you are penalising them.

Regarding if you would be in a higher heat, perhaps, but there are a lot of variables. The reason I am not sure is where you went away early from meetings, if you didn't have good results that would seriously impact your ability, and therefore you wouldn't neccesseraly be any higher. No simply answer I'm afraid, just maybe's.

I probably wont do the whole series again this year anyway so it doesnt matter.
Its more of a challenge qualifying out of the lower heats anyway!

I also propose that any track or piece of ground is used for a maximum of 2 rounds of the championship.

over £20 just to accommodate trophies seems a bit over the top what was the race fees last year i cant remember exactly what they were but im sure they were no where near that. I think we could do without the trophies this is just a bit of fun for alot of people that race

I propose just racing 1 round and the cost to be £50 each. Not bothered about trophies but we could all bugger off and get a bloody good hooker! Just my opinion. Sorry if this offends but i have been drinking heavily thelast few nights.

Bryan, it would only be £10 extra, not £15. It's nothing to do with the size of the trophy but amount you would need. Go and price trophies and I'm sure you'll be surprised. They're not cheap mate.

Trophies are over rated, I have a box full of them in my loft ..... I don't think its worth the extra outlay just so we can have a badly made cheap looking trophy that usually ends up in a box after a few weeks anyway.
