BOSS GP Series 2010

Hi friends!
1. I wish you all a very happy, healthy and successful 2010 with a lot of race fun!

2. The banning of our friend 'Driftwood' is definitely not because of any action from me, rather I will also miss his (sometimes) very interesting statements, but I also think he will back soon!

3. Possibly it will be better if I change my own forum name, I will think about it, but on the other hand I am always a EuroBOSS Fan (particularly the good old days), I had a wonderful time there, I have learned many things, also from Roger and the best I could meet there so many nice people!

4. I have not start this new thread, because we still wait for the official FIA approval regarding our series (wish) name: 'BOSS GP', which is more a formality but important for all the official press work, our regulations, etc.

5. I'm 99% sure that we will have more than 6 cars (also more than 8)!

6. I have posted in the 10/10's EuroBOSS thread some weeks ago the most important facts why the four ex-EuroBOSS drivers (Klaas Zwart, Marijn van Kalmthout, Frits van Eerd, Henk de Boer) and I (they asked me) have decided to go this way and to create a completely new series for BOSS cars. Therefore I will not always discuss about the pro and contra. We all know that one strong series would be better, but again, we saw and see no other chance to do it in this way, mainly for a better BOSS future, for the drivers, teams, sponsors, fans, spectators, organisers, etc. You can believe me, we will definitely do our best to bring it on this high and successful level which we all wants since years. That's our aim!

7. We plan 7 races for this year, 5 of them are already 100% confirmed by the organisers (all very well-known race meetings), for our 6th date we have two race offers (at the same circuit) where we have to select now and race number 7 we are still in discussion with different organisers about a posible date. All (possible) BOSS GP drivers and their teams are updated with all the latest news (calendar, etc.) via our monthly 'Inside' newsletter. I will publish the calendar here at 10/10ths if we have all 7 races finalised (I think still 1 or two weeks).

8. More information follow...

Ah I see.

Looks promising with some heavy hitting backers behind it.

Best of luck in your new role Christian

That was a fantastic meeting it was fitting that it was co-ordinated by the late John Nicol and was to be his last race meeting sadly.

Good luck Christian I think maybe BossGP can be a International series with Euroboss reverting to its roots as Boss and just running in the UK with maybe 1 or 2 forays abroad. I think Euroboss would need to change the regs to allow the smaller cars like they did in the early days. However I had a quick count up and there are currently over 10 active drivers with F1 cars in the UK, so maybe a Uk based Euroboss series would be more viable in the current climate?

Thanks Peter, thanks Remi, thanks Ian!

@ascarracinguk
We also hope that we can come this year to GB for a BOSS GP* race, but what can I say at the moment, to organise a race there was in the last EuroBOSS years always (curiously enough) the biggest problem of all races we had to plan!

...beside the enormous costs for a GB race you have 2010 one big problem more, because every organiser who plans a race at Donington is very careful with 'guest' series in a time where they not know whether the planned event with his own series will take place there. With this problem you nearly lost one more circuit from a very small list with possible BOSS FIA Grade 2 circuits. That means you have for a BOSS race only Brands Hatch Indy/GP or Silverstone (Snetterton is FIA Grade 3, Rockingham no chance because of noise restrictions, Anglesey not really a favourite circuit for these cars, etc.), then you must find a possible event at these circuits (only events with 'international' status, no noise problems, etc.) and all this together in a good conjunction with the other (mostly already confirmed) dates! You see, it sounds much easier than it is... but we will give our best!

@Thundersports
How can you activate all these "sleeping" British and Irish BOSS drivers? What they want or for what they wait? It would be very interesting for me to hear from these to, because I think most of them would love to come out again with their BOSS cars.

The crazy situation in EuroBOSS was, Roger and I we worked every year very hard to organise a UK race (also to "wake up" these drivers), but at the end who came, the regular drivers from continental Europe plus the 4-5 UK regulars plus 1-3 UK 'guests' (Keen, Greensall, McLurg) > most of the non-UK races had better grids.

I would also love to have two/three UK BOSS GP races every year with big grids and with as much as possible drivers from the good old BOSS days! One of my biggest wishes since years..., but this is also not so easy as it sounds.

I was standing on the exit of Redgate and saw the car launched in the air after a clash of wheels with Paul Stoddarts Tyrrell on the first lap, it hit a unprotected wall knocking Johan out. I'm assuming of course you mean Johan Rajamakis Arrows A13 running a V8 Hart engine from memory. The Porsche engined cars were the Footwork Arrows A11 and only appeared in Euroboss with V8 DFR engines in the hands of Tony Hansford and Nick Crossley (i'm 90% certain someone else ran one in the late 90s). H-Engineering still have one of the cars which ran the Porsche V10.

1. Tony Hansford/H-Engineering
2. Kokney Koi maybe 2 cars
3. Gary Woodcock
4. Michael Woodcock
5. Jodie Hemming
6. Chris Woodhouse
7. Colin Stone
8. Mansell Motorsport
9. Paul Osborn
10. Eddie Mclurg
