They've been fairly static over the last few years (give or take 5-10 maybe) but they do seem to have jumped recently (not just the MSN Circuit Championship events but across the board). It seems that the overheads have gone up (insurance mostly) - clubs have absorbed some of the rises but ultimately they can't run these events at a loss so the increased costs get passed on to the competitors.

Nah, don't think so. It might not be very warm but it sure fulfills the other two criterion! The South Bank old farts club members will be there in numbers well 4 at least!

Not this year - we've done it the past couple of years but are giving it a miss this year. We'll work out what our next outing is at some point after Brands (hopefully with a healthy car this time).

Best of luck, we'll stop by and say hello if you're not busy, need to keep on the move in these temperatures!

We enjoyed our day out with our first ever class win (Car 43, Class A, red Nissan Micra).

I've only competed at Brands twice with a second and a first in class, Matt has had some other seconds there, and as a crew we've had a number of second and thirds in class at different events so to win it was very pleasing! Good picture and write up in MN this week too.

If anyone has any photos I'd be interested in seeing them, thanks.

Well done on the class win I did think you'd be in with a shout when we passed the Newtons parked up at Druids.

Our day was ruined somewhat by power steering issues - it sometimes worked, it sometimes didn't - often changing its mind halfway through a corner which made life interesting. Martin said that it was the hardest he's ever had to work in the car. We changed a few bits to try and cure it but whatever the problem was is still there now. Given that the problem wasn't going away we just used up old tyres and concentrated on getting to the finish without taking any big risks. Still good fun from my seat though

I haven't been sent any proofs of photos through yet - normally we get them pretty soon after the event but nothing so far.

I noticed some head scratching going on in the paddock area so I thought best not to stick my nose in! Car still looked good though

Coverage from Brands here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4sTrmU08mI

Not featuring us at all but we figured we wouldn't on there as we were off the pace and didn't have any eye catching 'moments' either.

One thing I didn't realise is just how far Quigley drove the Clio after damaging the front suspension, I assumed he'd hit the chicane on Paddock Hill.

I presumed the same with the Clio! I believe we appeared four times in the coverage.
