Great news for Intermarque.

Added: 4th January 2016

Exciting news for 2016 is the announcement that Scrapco Metal Recycling will be joining Avon tyres to help promote and support the Intermarque championship. This has helped secure some television coverage on Motors TV, and also a return to Mallory Park in late May. The owner of Scrapco, Ricky Hunn, is pleased to support the championship which he also competes in. Several new and returning drivers are expected to compete this year and the signs are that the championship will be increasing in popularity. The prospects for 2016 look very good indeed.

When registering for this years championship, you will receive a windscreen visor strip advertising Scrapco. This must be displayed at all times.

Dinner Dance.

Added: 24th December 2015

The dinner dance and awards night is only four weeks away. Lots of trophies and special awards. We have a guest celebrity who is a former BTCC champion and is often outspoken. Also a guest presenter, who has commentated on several of our races this year. The hotel offers fabulous facilities and is well worth the effort of joining our sponsors and fellow drivers. Please support the centre and have a great night out and weekend away from the post Christmas blues.

Licences Upgrade Advisory.

Added: 21st December 2015

It is highly likely that in 2017 some drivers will require a National A MSA licence, instead of a National B. This will probably effect drivers in classes A,B and possibly C of the Motorsport News saloons, and will be primarily based on power to weight ratios. This is just an advisory notice at this stage, but if you need to upgrade your licence during 2016 it may be prudent to do so.

Why no Lydden Hill in 2016?

Added: 21st December 2015

Some drivers have questioned why we are not going to Lydden in 2016. Unfortunately they have had to impose a 100 decibel maximum limit on all circuit activity, following a ruling from Dover District council.

A reminder to all drivers.

Added: 4th December 2015

A reminder to all drivers, and in particular to the Intermarque, unless the regulations specifically say you CAN do something to your car or engine then assume you CANNOT. Questions have been raised about the regulations for next year, and where possible they remain the same. At present all three sets of regulations are with the MSA for their approval. In the case of the Intermarque only mechanical driven water pumps are allowed and no “flat shift” engine cut systems. The reason for this is that new sophisticated noise testing comes into force next year. A flat shift system on an engine using carburettors would only cut spark not fuel, the result of which will be unacceptable “anti-lag” type noises (back fires). These “pops/bangs” will be easily detected by the new noise monitoring on all tracks. If in doubt ask a couple of our Renault Clio drivers, who have already experienced being black flagged for this type of noise.
