2015 LSOR National Series Count Down Begins

With the dust know settled from the Zenoah Challenge Cup the UK LSOR drivers are beginning to come  out of hibernation and have started going to the gym to give their fingers and thumbs their daily work out as in just 4 weeks time those drivers who wish to kick of their 2015 LSOR national campaign will be heading to the Nene Valley Raceway track in the heart of the middle England.

With just 4 weeks to go the national online booking system is now live, and for 2015 payments can be made via PayPal utilising the central BRCA payment system.

 

Don’t all rush at once to book in but please remember that in line with the 2015 rules additional fees will be incurred if

a) you turn up on Sunday to race and have not pre-registered;

b) if you are onsite on Saturday and leave it until Sunday morning to pay your race fees.

 

The inclusion of these fees is to encourage you to pre-register which helps the race director plan the weekend before arriving at the venue and as such for Rnd 1 online booking in will close on Wednesday 25th March.

Whilst we have rigorously tested and captured the current LSOR vehicle’s if you experience any issues or wish to point out an error then  please contact me via email at lsorchair@brca.org

2015 LSOR Series – No Hand Out Transponders

With only a month to got before we commence our 2015 series I thought I would remind you all that for 2015 the section will NOT be having any hand out transponders at our rounds. This is because most racers own a PT which makes there race weekend more relaxed and over the last couple of years the handout transponders have been phased out and are now no longer available to be purchased when they fail.

For those considering purchasing a PT following this announcement, which was confirmed at the AGM, you need to be reminded that the sections decoder has been upgraded to RC4 “pure” compatible but if you race at a local club who have not upgraded then don’t buy the 3 wire pure mylaps pt but the 2 wire hybrid or more traditional red DP. Anyone using an MRT transponder then the section will not guarantee your laps will be recorded correctly.

For confirmation anyone using an AMB\MYLAPS transponder will have no issues with being detected by our decoder.

For those newbies coming to there first meeting then the section has 4 hybrids which are available for hire for the weekend at £10, £30 deposit to be paid upon hand-out with car\house keys left.
