They normally run 60-70 cars and most people get about 12-15 runs depending on the circuit.

I was thinking about bringing a guest car too. Are tyre warmers allowed?

Funny thing is, I haven't signed up because I haven't heard back from Iain as to when my car can be booked in to be turned back into AWD!

I would have thought Saturday would be better for some? Unfortunately even if I had my car fixed by then, I would be up in Birmingham on Saturday morning.

Having not done one before my only concern is how packed it's going to be.
But yes, I can do the Saturday instead.
I was one of the people saying a Friday was a PITA with work.

I'm not worried about tyre warmers though.
Being in an R32 I expect to get shown up by a lot of experienced Evo drivers...

Evos will own gtrs for sure. The warmers are for the atom. It doesn't work at all with cold tyres.

Yeh, I was looking forward to it being a GTR/Porker affair.

I agree but cant have everything. Combe is quite fast so we do have a speed advantage but the slow stuff the evos will spank us. Maybe time to get my evo finished.

I'm sure its not meant as it sounds but its hardly the fault of those entering or the club if enough people didn't sign up. After all you can't lead water to a horse

I did not really mean it to sound anythingjust saying its a shame it never happened

Maybe the time scales were too tight it has taken years for the MLR to perfect their series

If you guys need any more material to promote the other dates don't hesitate to contact me and I will do anything I can to help

Steve

I am out because the event was scheduled for a Friday, with work and all. I have also since started our oncall rota which means that I am oncall most weekends and evenings.

No worries Steve, as I said it probably wasn't meant how it sounds - that's the problem with the written word
Thank you for the kind offer with the help too, I'm sure Barry shall utilise that in the future

That's a pity Jason, do you know when you are likely to be back as we can transfer the entry to a later round? or alternatively you can PM Speed Merchant and ask him for a refund.
