Important website notice regarding Silverstone meeting

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.

Important Notice for Drivers

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
Carol Glenn

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. You will be called to take your race car through the tunnel for noise testing and then directed to the assembly area from just before 0930. Leave your car in the assembly area and walk to the briefing room.

Remember this is a high profile meeting with International content. We are guests of SRO and MSV and must obey the requests of officials and marshals.

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.

The Tin Tops look like qualifying and one race on Saturday, second one on Sunday, QMN saloons qualifying on Sunday, both races on Monday. This might all change though!

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.
