Changes to Britcar end of season races (Donington, Brands & Snetterton)

From the Britcar website:

Donington Race Cancelled - Snetterton and Brands Hatch races lengthened to compensate for lost race time during 2011

Donington Park have today confirmed that they are unable to gain approval from the local council to run the Britcar race meeting on the 4th and 5th November.

To compensate for the loss of this championship round the final race meeting of the year, which was intended to be a non championship night race at Brands Hatch lasting for 90mins, has now been changed to a championship scoring round and will last 4 hours for the Britcar MSA British Endurance Championship competitors and 2 hours for the Britcar Dunlop Production GTN Championship. There is no change in the Brands Hatch entry fee from the originally published prices.

In addition to compensate for the loss of race time at Spa and Thruxton during the season we have also increased the race length at Snetterton from 3 hours for the Britcar MSA British Endurance Championship to 4 hours with no increase in entry fee. The Britcar Dunlop Production GTN Championship will remain at 2 hours for this event.

The above changes have been verbally confirmed with the MSA and we are awaiting the paperwork to issue the relevent Championship Bulletins.

We sincerely apologise for the situation which has been out of our control.

That kinda sucks, was hoping to do all three.

Still, at least Snett & Brands are still going

Does it? The only reason I'd query it is due to the limited number of days running on the GP circuit are generally allocated by this point in the season. That said, it would add something to the meeting if it were to be on the GP configuration.
