Thanks Toby, I'd be happy with that laptime in my Sigmax :-). Sorry you can't make it, we'll miss you!

Charles charles@tripleeracing.co.uk on 22 September 2018 at 19:24Link

Unfortunately I cant join you all at Spa next week. Here is a video of my fastest lap from Spa (and Supergraduates lap record) in 2016 for anyone wanting a recce of the track. Obviously my top circuit driving tip would be to get yourself a triple Sigmax tow!

Spa tickets - Nearly all of the Spa tickets will be sent first class tomorrow so should be with you on Saturday. More info will be in the updated information pack sent in the next few days but note that I do not have any 'working vehicle' passes. The current plan is that these will be handed out on entry to the paddock on Thursday, but we are still discussing it with Spa.

Charles charles@tripleeracing.co.uk on 20 September 2018 at 22:18Link

Spa tickets - we seem to have traced the tickets to a Parcelforce depot in Aldershot.....I will be going to pick them up tomorrow with an aim to get them to you at the weekend or early next week.

Charles charles@tripleeracing.co.uk on 19 September 2018 at 13:09Link

Yes, that's right and all will be clear in V2 of the info document later this week.....

Charles Elliott charles@tripleeracing.co.uk on 18 September 2018 at 16:28Link

Charles / Graeme - Article 9 of the Racing Festival Booklet states: The driver may not take part in the practice or race before having signed the waiver of appeal. So I would assume sign on as normal with your licence at the admin desk before Friday practice.

Mark Carter competitions@graduates.org.uk on 18 September 2018 at 14:49Link

Graeme - I assume not but am checking

Charles charles@tripleeracing.co.uk on 18 September 2018 at 13:45Link

Charles - do we need to sign-on before Friday afternoon testing?  I can't see any mention of this.

Graeme on 18 September 2018 at 11:32Link

Spa information and finals - have just been emailed to everyone. Please let me know if you didn’t get it, or have any questions. A final update will be issued later in the week.

Charles charles@tripleeracing.co.uk on 18 September 2018 at 11:29Link

Spa entry tickets - whilst I continue to wait for the various tickets to arrive, this is a link to a general entrance / paddock entrance ticket (not with a vehicle!) that you can download and print for anyone that wants one. 

Charles charles@tripleeracing.co.uk on 17 September 2018 at 15:01Link

CATERING AT SPA  - less than two weeks to go!

It looks like a full grid for what promises to be a great weekends racing!

Just a reminder..

DRIVERS - are allowed one extra person that is included in their entry. For any guests extra to this, there is a charge. This includes children over the age of 5.

The charge is £7.50 for adults and children over 14 years and £5.00 for children 5 to 14 years.Wristbands for the catering can be purchased from me on Friday.

I need to know this week how many I am catering for. 

Please email me on gail@rockeyracing.com or text me on 07960159979 if you would like guests or children to be included for catering. 

MEMBERS attending but not racing must also let me know that they are coming and if they are bringing anyone with them. 

It would be helpful if RACE TEAMS could also let me know how many mechanics are attending and if they would like them to be included in the catering. Please let me know.

See you all at SPA!


Gail Hiskey gail@rockeyracing.com on 16 September 2018 at 12:58Link

Spa last call - anyone else like Bill want to race at the greatest circuit in the world? Just a few hours left to enter: https://bookwhen.com/cgrc. Join the 58 drivers who will be finding a way through La Source and then trying to stay flat through Eau Rouge in a couple of weeks. 

Charles charles@tripleeracing.co.uk on 14 September 2018 at 19:31Link

Hi All, I'm very happy to say that, after an absence of nearly two years, I am going to be joining you on the grid at Spa - Yipee!

Now, sorry to hijack this message of reunion, but I'm getting the begging bowl out!

I have joined a group who are running/scrambling over a 5-mile course at the Gauntlet Games http://thegauntletgames.co.uk/pages/event-info-manchester-2018/ this week-end, in aid of https://www.ataxia.org.uk/, which is an organisation my wife is involved in as she is afflicted by this condition.  It's a bit last minute, and I am totally unprepared, so your support would be much appreciated.  If you feel like helping, you can give here: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/DudleySupportGroup

- it's a group page so a reference to me would be helpful.

Many thanks, and I look forward to seeing you at Spa.

Love to all,

Bill

Rockingham - are organising a 'Super Send-off' race weekend on 24th / 25th November to celebrate their 17 years of racing. Details are still being finalised, but you can read the announcement here on their website. A club mail to members will follow on this.

Mark Carter competitions@graduates.org.uk on 12 September 2018 at 14:20Link

BARC Marshals Fund - the total from the collections at Thruxton, Snetterton and online was £550, which will be spent on kitchen facilities for the marshals at Thruxton. Your donations will be used to install a water supply, and hot water boiler, in what used to be the marshals sign on room, for the marshals to fill up their flasks with hot drinks before going to their post. Thank you for your contributions!

Mark Carter competitions@graduates.org.uk on 12 September 2018 at 14:14Link

Spa 2018 - I sent out some information about Spa today, as well as a request to complete a short survey re: tickets. Please can you complete the survey ASAP, and contact me if for any reason you haven't received the email.

Goodwood Revival Sunday - single entry ticket going spare to any Club Member in return for a donation to the Club charity. 

Kate Outterside kate.outterside@btinternet.com on 08 September 2018 at 17:21Link

I agree it is a bit unclear but it is as you would expect. The time on the timetable is the time we should pull out of the assembly area for the formation lap. The race duration (30 minutes) starts when the red lights go out.

Charles charles@tripleeracing.co.uk on 07 September 2018 at 16:32Link

the Spa timetable says "Time of the Start = start of the formation lap" . 

does that mean our races (from the lights) are actually 30 mins minus the duration of the formation lap and start procedure?

ChrisB on 07 September 2018 at 15:05Link

Spa timetable - more information will be forthcoming by early next week, but the (provisional) Spa timetable is available here. Bear in mind that the cars will be in Parc Ferme for 30 minutes after the race.

Morning All, I hope you've all recovered from your long drives from Anglesey.

Just a quick reminder to ask for your "Spins and Wins" footage. 

Currently, I've been provided with 3 files. 

2 from Harry C and 1 from Matt Willoughby

Please, could I ask that you send them to me via e-mail if they are small and short? 

Alternatively... if you've got some good beefy HD files you wish to send me please do so via WeTrasfer - mark.jj@me.com

Many Thanks

Mark - Is it asking the question re Rockingham?

Spencer Fortag spencer@docksidekent.com on 30 August 2018 at 17:21Link

I have withdrawn from Anglesey and highly doubt that I will be racing at Spa. For various reasons, I have not enjoyed racing this year and the final, very small, straw has appeared.

I will have a long, hard think before I commit to not racing next year.

Thank you to everybody that has been supportive towards me over the eons.

Andrew Outterside commercial@graduates.org.uk on 30 August 2018 at 08:21Link

Apparently there are 48 power points in the paddock so it shouldn’t be too difficult to locate one. 

Charles on 29 August 2018 at 22:23Link

Not forgetting CTS Motorsport ;-)

We're not going to arrive until late morning Friday but if there's access to run a power lead and someone feels that they could save us a space, then that would be much appreciated!

Anglesey Paddock - there's an event on at Anglesey tomorrow, so paddock access will be from 6pm, but the gate will be manned all night! I've been unable to accurately locate the electrical power point(s) in the paddock, so the only paddock plan is here. There should be plenty of room, but please leave space adjacent to electrical power points for GRS, McMillan Motorsport and most importantly, Rockey Racing (Catering).

Mark Carter competitions@graduates.org.uk on 29 August 2018 at 17:07Link

Anglesey - the Timetable and Final Instructions have both been amended, and should appear on the BARC and BARC NW websites later today. In advance, you'll find Version 3 of the Timetable here, and Version 2 of the Final Instructions here.

Mark Carter competitions@graduates.org.uk on 29 August 2018 at 13:55Link

Rockingham - our championship events are fixed for the year, so any additional race would indeed have to be a non-championship event. It would also have to be on one of Rockingham's existing race weekends when timekeepers, officials and marshals are present, and there is a large gap in the existing timetable for us to qualify and hold a race ... I don't think this is at all likely!

Mark Carter competitions@graduates.org.uk on 29 August 2018 at 13:31Link

That would be rather cool.  Rockingham is (/was) a long way off being a favourite circuit of mine, but I have some fond memories and will miss it.  It would be nice to say goodbye. 

Michael Downing michael-at-michaeldowning.me.uk on 29 August 2018 at 12:00Link

Here is, what could be considered, an oddball suggestion. How about the club organise a round at Rockingham before it closes? Could be a non-championship race (it may HAVE to be?) Maybe a mini-enduro type? 

Spencer Fortag spencer@docksidekent.com on 29 August 2018 at 10:38Link

CATERING ANGLESEY - The weather is looking good for Anglesey so we will be providing a Buffet Lunch on both days. 


Please don't forget to let me know by Wednesday if you have any extra guests coming along that you would like to be included for lunch so that I can cater accordingly. 

Club members who are attending but not racing are entitled to food but also need to let me know in advance.

Food wristbands for drivers can be collected from Cath or myself on Friday and Saturday and wristbands for guests can be purchased at the same time.

My email is gail@rockeyracing.com - my mobile is 07960 159979

Many thanks and see you at the weekend!

My Sigmax is up for grabs in FOR SALE section for the last 2 rounds of the season.

Andy Molsom on 23 August 2018 at 13:37Link

Thanks Chris.

SteveA on 22 August 2018 at 16:25Link

Mintex F6R - had no problems with them at all.

ChrisB on 22 August 2018 at 09:35Link

 What front pads are Sigmax drivers using? I’ve been using Mintex f4r and during my post race checks have noticed on one of them the friction material has completely separated from the backing plate. There is hardly any wear on them either. I’m hesitant to buy another set of the same.

SteveA sda_jcs@hotmail.com on 21 August 2018 at 20:54Link

Agree with Charles about Rockingham. I was due to make my Grads/Racing debut at The Rock back in 2002, but the meeting was cancelled.  Unfortunately this just added to the catalogue of misfortune for the track(its first Indycar race became a demonstration race after problems with the surface). It's interesting that both of the European Oval circuits built  with the intention of bringing American Racing across the pond have now closed.   .

DARRENG on 21 August 2018 at 16:50Link

It was never the most popular of circuits, but it’s a shame to see Rockingham shutting its doors to racing at the end of the season. It genuinely offered something different in it’s heyday with oval racing in the day and concerts afterwards. 

Charles on 21 August 2018 at 14:54Link

I will be back.  We just want to do other things with our spare time (and limited fun budget) for a few years.

Matthew Willoughby on 21 August 2018 at 14:45Link

Many thanks

Nooo Pete! The first person I ever crashed into! Hope the back and neck trouble proves easily manageable 

James R on 20 August 2018 at 18:12Link

If anyone hasn't booked aroom for Anglesey yet, there is a double room available at Driftwood B&B inRhosneigr (http://www.driftwoodbb.co.uk/). I don’t need the room now as unfortunately I'm having to giveup racing due to a bad back and neck, both of which have occurred this year. Iwould like to thank all those on the committee, past and present, for runningthe Grads, and also Ben and Gail plus all the friends I have made over the past18 years of racing. No doubt I’ll be begging for tickets at sometime in the future so that I can come along and spectate, so you haven't seen the last of me!!

PeteC on 20 August 2018 at 14:12Link

Headlight brackets sorted (as long as I can persuade a metric pair to fit).

In addition to the stuff Charles mentions for Spa, you will need FIA roll cage padding. You should have it already as it's mandated in our regs, but you WILL fail scrutineering at Spa if you don't have it.

******************** POLLEY UPDATE - ANGLESEY ********************


I have been advised by Steve that due to unforseen circumstances that they will not be able to attend the Anglesey round.  He is very sorry for the inconvenience.


Polley will offer a free carriage service to anyone wishing to have tyres sent to them or their usual free fitting service at their premises in Manea.

Roger roger.ford@gmail.com on 18 August 2018 at 16:41Link

Spa - a reminder of a few things. You must have a National A licence. You need to have/wear full fireproof underwear, socks, long johns, long sleeve top and balaclava and everything must be FIA approved. Gloves and boot socks must also be FiA approved to a current standard. Extinguishers must be in date for servicing, ie show a next service date in the future.

Anglesey - Final Instructions with Provisional Timetable plus Paddock Plan are here and tickets will be posted to drivers today. If you've yet to enter, please do so ASAP, to assist BARC NW with organisation.

Jon - I'm assuming that the big red 'E' on the Paddock Plan indicates electrical power. I'll produce a more detailed Paddock Plan showing locations for the larger teams a week before the event.

Classics - please note the revised grid / start procedure, which is as agreed by the drivers at the meeting held at Snetterton.

Ben - it has yet to be confirmed if the CNC Heads will be running on the International Circuit at Anglesey, as it depends on whether their entry numbers exceed the capacity for the Coastal Circuit. The Anglesey website still shows the Circuit for Friday Testing as TBC.

Mark Carter divergenteng@hotmail.com on 14 August 2018 at 00:35Link

Just noticed that the CNC Saloons are racing the international and everyone else is on coastal. Will Friday testing be grouped and run on the circuits we are racing on?

The Draft Timetable currently shown on the BARC NW website is Version 1, which incorrectly has our second races as 20 minutes duration. Version 2 should be published shortly, with times as per my previous post.

Mark Carter divergenteng@hotmail.com on 11 August 2018 at 06:10Link

Draft timetable is here: http://www.barcnorthwestern.co.uk/events

MW on 11 August 2018 at 05:52Link

so Sigmax has to have both races on the same day and will be almost the last to finish too? joy. thank goodness it isn't a long drive home. Oh wait....

CB on 11 August 2018 at 01:08Link

Anglesey - sorry Darren, no possibility of free practice, as they are limited to 8 hour meetings, and with 21 races to fit in, the schedule is absolutely full. We'll be in the paddock, as the garages are allocated to the CNC Heads Sport / Saloon Championship, and we'll be racing on the Coastal layout (with Corkscrew).

A Provisional Timetable will be published shortly on the BARC website, but the times I've been given are:

Classic / Sigma / Mega - Sat 12:05 Qualifying, 16:30 Race 1; Sun 14:44 Race 2.

SigMax - Sat 12:55 Qualifying; Sun 10:02 Race 1, 15:49 Race 2.

So both SigMax races are on the Sunday, and it doesn't look as if that can be changed, but our second races will be 25 minutes.

Mark Carter divergenteng@hotmail.com on 10 August 2018 at 19:09Link

Darren - having just been given responsibility for competitions, I'll find out for you!

Mark Carter divergenteng@hotmail.com on 08 August 2018 at 18:43Link

Is there any chance of free practice at Anglesey?

CLASS REPRESENTATIVES
London, 6th August 2018

Following on from the AGM where Class Representatives were raised again I would like to call upon each Class to nominate their Representative.

To remind you the outline responsibility of each Class Rep is:

  1. To act as the communication focal point for their Class and represent the interests of their Class;
  2. To bring any proposed technical changes or issues to the attention of the Technical and Safety Director;
  3. To bring any race issues (excluding Driving Standards) to the attention of the Competitions Director;
  4. To participate in regular meetings (probably every other race meeting during the season for ½ hour and once or twice during the closed season) with the Chairman and Commercial Director to discuss any issues within their Class and how the Class can be promoted to increase membership.

NB: A Class Representative will not be a member of the CGRC Board We would like representatives from the following classes:
  • Classic
  • Mega
  • Sigmax
  • Sigmax VCT
  • Sigma/ Sigma VCT
As we are not all together until Anglesey could interested members please send nominations (themselves or others) to Andrew and I and we will then facilitate a Class process to determine who the representative will be.  It would then be our intention to have a first meeting at Anglesey if possible.

If anyone has any questions relating to the role please contact either Andrew (commercial@graduates.org.uk) or myself (chairman@graduates.org.uk)

Thank you for participating.

There is loads of space here at Snet where Grads have got their allocated space for the weekend - and it looks like someone has set up already for the weekend there already.

I'm sure you could find some way of getting into the paddock, (even if it's just to visit the 7 track evening)-  if they even bother to stop you at the gate, and then i'm sure no one would bother to stop you setting up as long as it wasn't near the pit garages.

Please do not phone Hayley Wicks as suggested (or send her an angry e-mail) as this will not change anything.

There is a track day until 5pm today, so the paddock is booked and will be full until then. This evening, the Lotus 7 Club will be using the pits, and the paddock behind the pits, with their track time scheduled from 5:30-8pm. They have been given 30 minutes to pack up and leave, which is why we have been given access at 8:30pm.

All too often in the past, people who have booked track days have been boxed in by others setting up for the next day, which is why MSV has this rule!

Given where we are located in the paddock, if no-one is there, you may be able to set up after 5pm if you ask politely to go to the '100 Paddock', and trailers can be left for the next day in the outer paddock.

Access to the Snetterton paddock this evening after 20.30hrs is really too late if you're travelling a long distance to take part in testing tomorrow. You still have to find your hotel and be back early the next day for testing. I've written a not to the "testing co-ordinator" regarding access to the paddock - as it is most unlikely to be full.

Could some other members (or even the exec) please ask if we can have some space to drop trailers off. - The contact is Haley Wick - 01953 887303.

Thanks Ben and Peter. Fortunately the car seems to be sorted now. Looking forward to a great weekend.
