Important Notice For QMN And TinTops Drivers

Added: 26th August 2014

Both the centre chairman (Chris Bird) and QMN co-ordinator (Amanda Bird) met with the QMN drivers representative Steve Rothery on Sunday. They discussed the cancellation of the second QMN/Tin top championship race following the accident in the preceding Lotus race, and the subsequent email which was sent to all the QMN drivers.

The decision to cancel the race was NOT the responsibility of one individual. There was a discussion between various committee members and the officials from MSVR, as previously stated on this website. MSVR were unwilling for this discussion to go on and include the drivers, so the clerk of the course was left with no alternative but to cancel. In view of the disappointment to drivers and teams the centre hastily arranged for an alternative race and partial refund. Priority is going to the drivers who were in the collecting area on Sunday 17th, and they should all have received the new entry form by now. If not please contact Chris Bird.

Regards Amanda Bird
QMN Co-ordinator

Further Clarification About QMN and TinTops Championship Rounds

Added: 22nd August 2014

Following consultation with the MSA, where the centre was reminded that running additional championship race requires the approval of every registered driver in both QMN and Tin Tops, it soon became obvious that this would not be achieved, mainly due to drivers having booked holidays. It was therefore decided to run the race on September 7th as a non-championship race, and invoke regulation 1.6.2.

Important Notice Regarding Cancelled Brands Hatch GP Race - UPDATE

Added: 19th August 2014

The centre regrets that the second QMN / TinTops race was cancelled on Sunday, but the organising club (MSVR) was under extreme pressure following a very serious accident on the section between Hawthorns and Dingle Dell. The decision was reached between the centre chairman, who was also our race clerk, and the senior clerk plus the secretary of the meeting. A Lotus race was also cancelled, and they were the main event of the meeting.

The BARC south eastern centre has decided to make a partial refund of £150 to all QMN / TinTops drivers who competed at the weekend. This is more than half the cost of the original entry fee. All drivers concerned will receive the refund and will not be allowed a transfer to another event. In addition those drivers who had their cars in the assembly area on Sunday afternoon (in other words had not withdrawn) will be offered a free race on Sunday September 7th at Brands Hatch. This will be a non-championship trophy race, the title of which will be announced soon.

In accordance with both the MSA and our own regulations, there will now be 15 championship rounds for both QMN and the Cannons TinTops, with a drivers best 14 scores to count.

Chris Bird
BARC South East Centre

UPDATE

Howard Smith will contact all concerned drivers as to how the payment of the refund will be made to them. Therefore any queries must referred to Howard.
