ascari a hair raising spectacle indeed! The Worswick car was a Jordan 194 with a Judd V10 he still has it and it would be wonderful to see it out again one day.

The Porsche F1 engine was a V12 brain fade.

No no no, these are in my opinion not the "sleeping" drivers/teams, these are for me the UK 'regulars', ok, sometimes more, sometimes less, but I'm sure that we will see from your list at least 6 or 7 in a BOSS race this year! We have to convince and re-activate all the others, because these 11 names are all still in touch with the BOSS racing scene.

These UK regulars me look at the economic climate and may decide a Euroboss series based in the UK would be more viable for them? That is why I think there may be room for two series. One UK based and one European based the Uk series also allowing the 80s F2 cars that have nowhere to race and late F3 cars from the ailing Club F3 championship?

80s f2 cars and club f3 cars are to slow, the closing speeds are dangerous thats the problem Ian!!

most of the so called uk drivers say every year why dont we have more meetings in the uk, when we do, like brands last year, they still stay at home and polish there cars!!!!!!!!!
the costs need to be reduced, starting with the circuit fees, then we may get somwhere...........

Mr Hansford the slowest Club F3 practice time the last time they were on Brands Indy in comparable conditions was 50s a full 10s quicker than the slowest Euroboss car; the quickest guys were in the 44s which would have lined them up around 9th/10th on the grid. At that meeting Chris Woodhouse demonstrated that a well driven smaller car is not an issue. The simple way to police the speed differencial in both series (which I think should be a rule now) would be to have 110% time rule in qualifying.

Yes too many Uk drivers stay at home when there is a UK race but that hasn't been helped in recent years to a very fluid calender. As rule of thumb if you browse the entrys for various races over the years you tend to only get one or two extra local entry per event, ie Kokney Koi UK, Rajamaki Sweden, Van Hee Belgium.

The thing with letting the F2 and F3 cars in is at least you might get 15 cars on the grid.

Most reports I have been reading from the last few years are , F1 cars do 3 laps in practise and the the Gearbox breaks and homeward bound that car goes ,

when you have 8-10 car grid , and 3 cars break done after or in practise , very boring race for the people that have paid entry to the circuit and fuel , food etc then to see to 5 cars running around , at least with a few smaller cars the spectators get to watch a race.

I don't think the smaller cars will be necessarily slower in fact they may humble a few of the F1 cars especialley in the wet. The main speed differencial will be on the straights in fact I think a well driven late F3 car will be faster in the twisty bits. Not forgetten in Boss they could take of the air restricters freeing up a fair bit more BHP.

And yes the frailty of the F1 cars is alarming, and before anyone shoots me down I am more than aware of the complexitys of running one.

Hello too! I also think that the BOSS race scene should be very special and therefore only for the big and powerful Big Open Single Seater cars. That's what the organisers want to have and the spectators want to see. I am definitely not a friend of ideas like 'you can fit your F3 car with bigger wheels/tyres and no air restrictor and then you have a BOSS car or other crazy ideas like that (yes, these ideas are real). Ok, I can here only speak for the BOSS GP* series, we will be there for all interested, but cars, definitely only for the real big ones!

BOSS GP Series 2010

...and before I forget! We will also not have so many classes that nearly every type of BOSS car has their own. At the end we would come in a situation (for example) with a own class for World Series by Renault, World Series by Nissan (possibly with weight rules for or against success), F3000, a class for F1 cars in original livery, etc. etc. We want also not always the same discussions after every race (as we had in EuroBOSS) why this or this not happened, why a driver is only on the 3rd position and not on 1st and so on! First of all we want to have fun and spectacular and close races and that's all for the best value for money we can offer. Go out, enjoy this weekend, enjoy your race and the fastest driver of the two classes will be the winners.

Christian.

You say that 5 of 7 races are confirmed. Are you able to supply dates of the first meeting ?

Thanks

Hockenheim 16-18 april seems to be a good choice.
