We've got our new seats for next year on order (our current seats fall foul of the new 5 year rule), need to get the belt cutters now and send the logbook off to have the photo changed.

The entry list is filling up nicely already - there's a good mix of cars on there, just need to encourage a 6R4 or two to come and play

Indeed. There are plenty of people talking about entering, and the minimum entry has been reached within just three days of entries opening so it will be good to see who else enters!

Great to see this event on the calendar for 2014, myself and a few other Brands regulars are really looking forward to it, the previous events have been a great start to the new year! Well done the organisers.

Just seen a 6r4 is on the entry list!! A rebuilt one? Last time I saw this reg number it was a squashed pile of bits!! Cant wait to see it.

Just to say, this event has been my highlight event for last two years (don't tell the team I spanner for in bike racing) and I would not miss it for the world.

Just need a Chevette to enter and its Christmas!!

Longmoor for us tomorrow so got to keep it tidy - only two weeks until Brands. Looking at the seeded list for Brands there's some very quick cars out there!

Well - we kept it tidy. Shame about the gearbox though you don't get far with just 1st...... Gearbox out tomorrow to assess the damage. We were absolutely flying until it gave up too

Well we have the answer on the gearbox - and we're good to go

The car has changed colour since the last Brands outing too:

That paint job should stand out on a cold, wet January day at Brands!
For the uninitiated petrolheads such as myself, is there a simple explanation of class structures somewhere? I've very much enjoyed the previous January meetings at Brands but it would be better to gain a better understanding of the competition rules for someone who is more used to club circuit racing. Is it based purely on engine capacity?

It's based on engine capacity for classes A-D, everything four wheel drive goes in class E no matter what the engine size. Capacity split is as follows:

Class A: Up to and including 1400cc
Class B: Over 1400 and up to and including 1600cc
Class C: Over 1600 and up to and including 2000cc
Class D: Over 2000cc

So within a class you'll have quite a variation in car spec - in Class C for example you'll have cars with a fairly standard 2 litre engine all the way up to ex works F2 kit cars and space framed thingies like the Darrians. Similarly there will be Escorts in a variety of specs in Class C and D. The top seeded car is a 1600 (Davrian) - it weighs nothing and has the engine and gearbox towards the back of the car so it's a bit of a beast and suits Brands very well.
