2017 EFRA LSOR EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP – UK DRIVER REGISTRATION

Its fast approaching that time of year when the UK have to submit our list of numbers who wish to attend the forthcoming LSOR European championship.

The Championship will be held in the UK in 2017 at the Nene Valley Raceway club in Northamptonshire during the final week of July, 24th to the 29th July. (Date to be confirmed at the 2106 EFRA AGM in November)

It is anticipated that like this years European championship in France all three classes of LSOR will be raced, 2 wheel drive buggy, 4 wheel drive buggy and Short course with all classes requiring an EFRA licence which costs £45 currently.

Could I ask all the UK drivers interested in participating in the 2017 LSOR EFRA European championship please make me (lsorchair@brca.org) aware that you wish to attend and what class by the time of the BRCA AGM on the 30th October so we can inform EFRA of our required allocation. Likewise once you’ve raised your interest a full payment of £105 or deposit of £55 needs to be made to the BRCA section to reserve your place by the time of the BRCA AGM, if a deposit is made then the balance of £50 needs to be made to the section by 31st December.

The non refundable payments can be either made in cash, Cheque (Payable to BRCA Large Scale Off Road Section), BACS transfer or paypal, whatever is easier. Paypal payments can be made to treasurer@brca.org with the subject : 2017 Large Scale Off Road EC Place plus your name.

Once EFRA have confirmed acceptance of our allocation the next step will be collecting the information that EFRA and the meeting organisers need. If places are limited or classes not run then refunds will be given accordingly.

2016 BRCA LSOR Rnd 6 – Please read

Firstly can I congratulate the Pickering crew on behalf of the BRCA 2016 LSOR section for making us feel welcome and ensuring that the track was in top condition ahead of our arrival.

Despite the pre event weather forecasts for the area around Pickering having bad storms and heavy rain the actual race day was run under glorious blue skies for the fourth year running with 47 racers making the trip to Sunny Yorkshire.

Those of us who arrived early experienced the heavy rain on Friday afternoon and late into the evening whilst Saturday practice was hit by a short sharp shower mid-afternoon.

The section wishes to congratulate those drivers who with two rounds to go have achieved scores to secure their places in their respective championships.

 

4 Wheel Drive National Championship Winner :- Ian Oddie

4 Wheel Drive National Championship Runner up :- Jack Keatley

 

2 Wheel Drive National Championship Winner :- Karl Norris

 

Whilst all this is good news I am afraid to say that Neil has contacted me following the meeting to say how disappointed he is that despite requesting that all rubbish should be taken home, 12 bags were hidden on the fire under a couple of pallets. For those who came with Co-op and Aldi carrier bags and Bulmer’s Neil and Robin have your goods if you wish to collect them!

 I am disappointed that a few racers have decided to ignore the hosts request and makes the hosts job twice as hard now since in Neil’s case the area used to race needs to be returned to perfect grazing conditions before the sheep return to the field and those who left late would have seen Neil on his hands and knees ensuring no body clips were in the grass!

 We have two rounds to go in the 2016 series so please if you are attending either round and camping please take home your rubbish to help both the Ings and Nene teams out.

Fuel

Fuel reminder.

 

Can I take this opportunity that whilst the LSOR section does not stipulate a dedicated service station per meeting we do have the following statement in our handbook.

1.15 Only fuel that is available from any UK petrol station may be used, no Avgas or specialist racing fuels allowed. The only additive allowed is 2stroke oil.
1.16 The following are not allowed: performance enhancing gases such as Nitrous Oxide, Fuel Injection, Boost bottles, Turbo or Super Chargers, Electronic Ignition systems which run off separate battery packs

Anyone found not to be running fuel as stated above will find themselves not only disqualified from the current season, but stripped of any previously won titles and will be recommend for expelling from the association by the BRCA executive.
