BARC SE Centre Summer Newsletter

Added: 6th July 2016 at 21:50

Dear BARC South East Centre Member

Since our Spring Edition of our newsletter, we would firstly like to welcome our 2 new recruits to the committee – Angela and Michael Knowles. Michael is also taking on the role of the new Tin Top Coordinator as Amanda Bird has stepped down from this position to concentrate her time on her other commitments. The committee would like to thank Amanda for all her effort and help over the years, it has been very much appreciated, but I am sure we will still all see her around the tracks as she is still heavily involved in the marshal side of things.

A New BARC SE Centre Rescue Unit

Rescue Unit The Committee is very pleased to announce that we have finally been able to formally hand over the new fully equipped Rescue Unit to Paul Butt and his colleagues. The official handover took place at Brands Hatch on Sunday 26th June 2016.

The purchase of the new unit was self-financing due to the fact that over many years Paul and his colleagues have made significant financial contributions to the Centre’s funds, because the hirings secured of the Rescue Units by motor clubs and other motorsport organisations, and we wish to record our sincere thanks to them for hiring our units.

In addition we have secured a grant from the MSA and with sale of our older unit to our colleagues at Croft this will offset the overall cost to the Centre.

We hope that the appearance of our new unit at race meetings will help not only promote BARC SE Centre’s profile, but motorsport in general.

From the Scrutineering Bay

The scrutineering bay tends to be a bit of a scary place for some, so over the next few issues of the newsletter Graham Bahr intends to pass on a little info and a few hints and tips…

The scrutineering that every car goes through after sign on is Safety Scrutineering. Eligibility is not of concern. Due to the large number of different championships and scrutineers its quite likely who ever looks over your car won’t have specific knowledge of the regulations for your car or championship, so unless there is something obviously wrong with the technical specification, eligibility issues will not be picked up at this stage. A car passing Safety Scrutineering can’t be assumed compliant with championship technical regulations.

Having your car scrutineered can be a stressful time, but fear not! A Safety Scrutineers job is NOT to prevent a car taking part in competition; they are just trying to ensure your vehicle is safe. Very often a competitors reaction to a scrutineer finding something at fault is one of either disbelief, or to go on the offensive, usually accompanied with the phrase “It must be ok it’s been like that for the last xx number of meetings/years”. So how does that situation come about? First off, given the very short amount of time available to check over a car it is impossible to check everything. Secondly being individuals different scrutineers tend to pick up on different items, this is actually a good thing as it means over a period of time many different points get checked. So what if that dreaded moment when a problem is pointed out arrives? First off, keep calm! It doesn’t automatically mean you won’t be issued a ticket, just ask what you need to do. A lot of the time the scrutineer will simply advise you to do something before the next meeting, don’t ignore such advise things could get difficult if you get the same scrutineer next time out. If the scrutineer is of the opinion that the defect absolutely needs correcting before he can issue pass ticket then you will be allowed time to do, this usually only applies to more serious issues such as defective cut out switches or seized pull cables. It is very rare you will get a point blank “Fail” that would have to be something very serious such as a non-compliant helmet or overalls or a dangerous defect in a mandatory section of roll cage.

We hope this information is helpful advice for the future.

Understanding the role of the Entry Secretary

We also thought it would be a great idea to get a bit more of an understanding about the role and behind the scenes of our Entry Secretary – Kelly Dann…

Before I became Entry Secretary for BARC SEC I would eagerly await the entry list, to see who Steve was up against or see which cars were coming out to play, I would often say, “Come on how comes there isn’t an entry list out yet, it’s only a list”. I can honestly say I had no idea what went on behind the scenes to organise everything so you guys, now including me, can go racing.

Towards the latter half of 2014 I expressed in interest in helping out at BARC SEC with any admin I could do that would help the club and I could fit in in the evenings, those of you that know me know that I have 2 children and work, I was invited to attend a committee meeting in November 2014. I was there no longer than half an hour before I realised that the people that were on the committee did an awful lot of work, none of it paid and all fitted around there usual day to day routines, work, families, children and having a life outside of BARC SEC and for the most part with no thanks . At that meeting that went on for nearly 4 hours, I was asked if I would like to take on the role of Entry Secretary, it would be something that for the most part I could fit in and around my usual day to day life. I accepted the challenge and between Rod and myself we came up with the new style Registration and Entry forms, in a bid to make life easier for the drivers, I retyped regulations, I did what I could to help. Every person on the BARC SEC committee has a different role to play, whether it be liaising with the MSA getting regulations approved, the clubs where we are invited to race, negotiating the track time and the fees we have to pay, organising trophies, making sure that everyone that should get a trophy does. It’s getting all the information put in the programmes for all the events we do, making sure all our drivers that are entered are listed, making sure as many of our drivers get the mentions they deserve, making sure we have up to date pictures for spotters guides, making sure we have enough cars on the grid. Making sure you all have access or are sent final instructions, briefing times, updating our facebook page, chasing you to renew your BARC SEC membership, liaising with drivers over forms, payments, general enquiries, answering questions. Trying to gain important sponsorship and arranging TV coverage. Attending committee meetings once a month, collating information and having reports ready.

I take my hat off to every person on our committee, we all work extremely hard, we don’t get paid and we don’t get a lot of thanks. So please I ask you to remember, we do what we do because we love what we do, even if it does take up most of our time, but we can be greatly assisted by you the drivers by entering before the ‘Closing date’, getting your entries in as early as you can, making sure all your forms are clear and readable and that you renew your BARC SEC Membership and you use the website and facebook pages for updates and information. We don’t get it very often, but a little thanks does go a long way.

Explaining the Entry Fees

One of the many questions the committee gets asked is how the entry costs are calculated. Therefore Howard Smith, the Chairman and Hon. Treasurer has devised a brief explanation and an example of the costs in order to help make things a little clearer……

These are the actual costs incurred and paid by the Centre at Brands Hatch over the weekend 26th to 28th March 2016.

Scrutineering Costs£345.001.95%
Officials Travel Costs and General Admin Costs£509.002.88%
Cost of Trophies£610.003.45%
Cost of Track Time£16200.0091.72%
Total Cost to Centr£17664.00100%

So as you can see the major cost to the Centre is the purchase of track time.

Racing at Other Circuits

Several drivers have asked about going to other circuits other than Brands Hatch. This is fine, but most other venues charge more money (such as Donington and Silverstone), plus we have to get staff there. This means we need to have our own clerk of the course, scrutineer, coordinator and assistant, which also costs the centre money as we pay travelling costs. We do try to find other venues, especially now that Lydden seems to be out of the equation. The Tin Tops and QMN will be going to Snetterton in early October, so we will see how well supported this will be. The Intermarque and Sevenesque have already had Silverstone (which had other issues) and Mallory Park (slightly disappointing support).

IMPORTANT QMN NEWS

Following discussion with MSA officials regarding speed differentials with in the QMN championship, it has been decided on safety grounds that for the 2017 season all forced induction engines shall be limited to a maximum intake size of 50mm. It is likely that most large turbochargers will need to be fitted with an intake restrictor to comply.

By way of clarification. ALL air entering the engine must pass through an intake hole no bigger than 50mm, Turbocharges may be fitted with “anti surge” slots or holes, however air entering those must first pass through the 50mm intake restriction.

Also, just a reminder. All QMN drivers will need a National A licence for 2017. This means that anyone requiring signatures needs to get this sorted before the end of the racing season. Remember that one day marshaling gets you a signature as well.

BARC SEC Awards

So that’s a lot from the committee side of things, now onto the big event for you drivers to support and look forward to - The BARC SEC Awards Dinner Dance 2017. The date has already been announced – Saturday 21st January 2017. We can now confirm that the venue for this year’s event is going to be in Essex at the Marriott Waltham Abbey Hotel. This is a 4* hotel with indoor swimming pool, restaurant, bar and fantastic access with a 30 second drive from Junction 26 of the M25. This awards night is open to all - drivers, spectators, friends and family. Details about booking your tickets or discounted hotel rooms will be published on the website in due course, but in the meantime if you have any questions or queries, please contact the Social Secretary Susie Welland.

If there are any topics which you would like to see in our Autumn Edition of the BARC SEC Members Newsletter, please do let us know of your suggestions, as this is one of our communicating channels and we would like to write about subjects which you would be interested in.

Kind regards
BARC SEC Committee

Added: 24th April 2016

The events at Silverstone yesterday are being investigated, but suffice to say that the results have been declared as there were no protests following their issue. A number of points have been raised with the organising club, namely the BRSCC. These include the parking problems, the lack of tannoy in the garages occupied by our drivers, the confusion over the drivers briefing time, the fact that Karts were being scrutineered blocking access from some of our garages. These and other points have been officially raised and will be discussed by our committee in due course. The centre regrets what happened, but a lot of this was out of our control.

Added: 15th April 2016

To All Competitors

We have had our first rounds of the season. Thank you to all for your patience at the Truck meeting, I know it can be trying when we race in the same meeting as the Trucks. On the whole most of the meeting went well. Not too many issues.

Reminder also that the Driver Briefings are Mandatory, it is the only time that I can address any issues on the day. If you have mechanical problems and you need to work on your car, please let either me or your coordinator know that you will not be able to make the briefing. Then I will arrange for you to have the briefing before your race. If you do not follow this procedure, and also fail to attend the briefing, you will be fined for non attendance. This will also apply if you are LATE for the briefing. Blue book G5.3.8 & Q4.2

I look forward to seeing some of you on the 17th of April, when your briefing is before you go on circuit at 09.45.

Cheers

Important information about this weekend

Added: 14th April 2016

As you all know space in the outer paddock is going to be very tight, which has restricted how many entries we could accept. Furthermore we cannot gain access to our area until 1900 on Saturday. Teams arriving before this time will now be directed to big yellow car park. this is behind the Kentagon. They can then walk through to watch any races and collect their orange vehicle pass (one per competitor). When our area is available they can then move in, but must liaise with Joe Weller from MSO first. He is responsible for the outer paddock and his instructions are final.

On Sunday morning the clerk of the course, Carol Glenn, has requested that we use the briefing room behind the pit lane for our drivers briefing at 0945.

Changes in noise monitoring for Track Day events

Added: 29th February 2016

The noise monitoring for TRACK DAY events has changed this year. At Brands Hatch the “drive by limit” has been reduced to just 92 decibels on some days. This means that most race prepared vehicles will fail. On the day you get two warnings, after that you are excluded from taking part any further. At Lydden the static limit is 100 decibels, which again is proving difficult for most race cars to comply with. Please be aware that you do not get a refund if your car fails the various noise tests.

Important information regarding Track Days noise limits

Added: 29th February 2016

The MSA do not govern track days, only race days. The noise limit set at Brands Hatch and other circuits, for track days, appears to openly discourage race cars. Our warning is so that you don’t waste money, as you will NOT get a refund. The situation is that most cars (including race cars) will pass the static test, which is still 105 decibels. However, because the on track drive by limit is so low you will most likely fail this. Once you have gone on to the circuit they can keep your money. We know this is sneaky hence the warning.

As a footnote the MSA do not set a drive by noise limit so you should not have a problem when racing with us.
