I think we all hope that - I actually really like the facility. Would love to race there on the oval.

I think you should be booking yourself in Minicross, Revolution Racing, CWS and Roots all have cars available. Rookie Training is on the 27th March.

According to my source(s), CDL made enough money out of the dual carriageway that is going through the site (don't forget, the whole site is some 300acres), and that bit alone almost covered what they paid for it.

So selling it now would give them full payback, and some profit over their original purchase price..... thus something that the housing market won't give them for a while - cash in the bank.

Come Friday, I have the numbers right, I am going to win it all on my own, so it will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine.... he he he he he!

Keep an eye on the press in the coming week. We have a lot to talk about come Thursday. If anyone wants to book up for the March testing get in touch, I might share some top secret info with you.

Or I might not,

I might just want to talk because Im lonely...

Poor ol' boy.

That's what going AC/DC does to you. You'll be thunderstruck too no doubt.

Entrylist looks good.

I like the fact there are not only Monte Carlo's but also Fusions, Chargers and other.

I understand why you call it Late Model Series. But the general people don't know what a late model is. If they see this sort of cars they call it NASCAR or stock car racing. Why not something like European V8 Stock Cars Series?

The entry list looks very impressive - the racing should be interesting with the British-spec cars as well as the CAMSO machinery. Aren't the CAMSO cars lighter, in which case how would the balancing be done - ballast, restrictors, both or some form of weird system belonging in a Japanese game show ?

I do agree with Fire's thoughts regarding the name ... EUROCAR?

I like the sound of EUROCAR, nice one , short and snappy like Nascar is.

I have a feeling that EUROCAR belongs to the BRSCC as they bought "EUROCAR Ltd" from Sonny Howard for far too much money a long time ago.

Running with "Late Model" means that it is directly comparable with the ASA/NASCAR/whoever's version of Late Model racing in the 'States.

What's more, it allows the creation of some sort of ladder of progression.

Also, calling it the European V8 Stock Car series is a bit of a "well, what's that?" Put European Stock Car in to Google, and I'd wager that it'll come up with F1 Stocks, which are a couple of RSJ's for the chassis, some truck axles, a V8, and an old washing machine tied to the roof with a number on it (well not quite, but it's the concept!)

(addendum) Just checked, "European V8 Stock Car" into google brings up "Spedeworth V8 Stock Cars"
