18th Aug        BTCC Aldershot

Super Stock – 13.5 Open ESC

Super Touring – Modified

All other rules as per BRCA.

Sorex XG-32RY slick tyres.   Fantastic special price of £24.99 for BTCC and BRCA competitors. Part No; XG-32RY

We politely ask racers in the spirit of the Schumacher BTCC to restrict tyre usage to a maximum 2 sets of slicks per day. 

XG-RAIN Shimizu D01J only wet tyre allowed. £29.99 Part No; XG-RAIN

Wheels featuring Revlite logo on the face are only used in pre-glued on these part numbers for easy scrutineering.

Practice

Tracks will be open Saturday for practice.  Drivers wishing to practice on the Saturday but not racing on the Sunday will have to pay a £10 fee. 

Best 3 from 5 results to count.

The traditional annual Cecil Schumacher Trophy will continue for the Super Touring class, join the list of elite winners such as Andy Moore, Chris Grainger, Elliot Harper, Glen Doman, Chris Ashton and Steve Pole?!!

The annual Robin Schumacher Trophy will be presented for the Super Stock class.

Points system as BRCA.

FTD Qualifying is normal but Round by Round may be used in the event of mixed weather. This will be announced at drivers briefing along with how many qualifiers and finals.

All drivers MUST be BRCA members and be able to show their BRCA licence.

Entry fee £15 via Central Booking, closing date Wednesday 12.01pm before each meeting.

Why the increased entry fee for 2013?

The BTCC in recent years has taken the guise for most as a warm up race for the BRCA nationals, while providing some great and close racing.  Consequently more and more people are making use of the track on the Saturday for practice.  This means we have been unable to hold the race fees at £10 any longer.  With most clubs struggling for numbers we want to make sure they hang around, hence in part the increased fee’s.  In our opinion it’s still great value to be able to use the track for two days for £15 and an extra £5 in terms of what this hobby costs is not going to break the bank.

Race entry refunds only available if cancelled 2 weeks prior to event.  Notification must be sent to chris(at)racing-cars.com Refund amount will be £14 due to admin and paypal fees.  Every effort will be made to accommodate reserves where possible, but refunds for reserves will not be made.

Class numbers will initially be set at:

Stock 17.5T: 30
Super Stock 13.5T: 70
Super Touring  30

Good luck and we look forward to meeting you at the races in 2013

Looking forward to my first ever 'proper' race at Stafford! 

Having never been to any of these events before (and only racing my Mi4 for the past couple of months), I have no idea what to expect, and hope that it'll be as much fun as it looks, despite my lack of experience.

Is camping available at Stafford (and all the meets)? Just wondered if there was a secure grassed campsite for racers and their families?

Thanks for your help...
