I'm noticing that CTCRC are on Silverstone GP circuit same weekend as 'MG Live!', so assume they are joining in.....

Not sure if this constitutes all the MGCC Meetings, as only calendar I can find is for the 'Trophy' cars.

April 9th- Donington

April 29/30- Brands Indy

June 17/18- Silverstone GP (MG Live!)

July 8/9- Knockhill

September 2nd- Oulton Park

September 30th- Snetterton 200

Does this mean the DBT won't be at the Gold Cup? Would seem a little redundant having them and the F2 there.

There is a change to HSCC calendar

23rd September will now be held at Snetterton on the 200 circuit, NOT
Brands Indy circuit.

But I see in Richards earlier, post the 750MC are also at Snetterton on the
23rd September on the 300 circuit.

When HF2 ran at Brands Hatch, there were 2 seperate races for HF2 and DBT

so this could go either way

personally:
I love Oulton Park
but I wont race my F2 there
in my book too much car for this kind of track
and too little safety margin in some places

I am getting old
meaning less flexible about changes.....

HF2 at Brands Hatch worked, for a number of reasons.
- track suited to the cars
- track near the ferry ports, easy access from continent for European entrants
- event as such large enough to support both DBT and HF2
me, personally, I doubt if it will work at Oulton Park as well

as organiser, I would have been reluctant to change something that works in this way, as there is a danger of damaging the event/series

then again, some people prefer to race at a different track, every now and again

and the Gold Cup can do with a shot in the arm to boost it
sad, but true

Then you certainly wouldn't have wanted to race there 50 odd years ago, when there no safety margins at all, and great big trees lined the track!

interesting change, this one....

event changed from one popular MSV track to a less popular more out the way MSV track

makes sense, once you figured it

I certainly would have gone to Brands
not sure about Snett,
more akward to get to
but its the 200, so perhaps tempting

Whilst, on the surface, the switch to Snetterton may look like a strange decision; there were valid reasons behind it. Also, Brands Indy isn't universally liked. Like Thruxton, it seems to be much more popular with single seater drivers than sports or saloon car drivers.

On the subject of the Gold Cup, I think the plan is to have both DBT and F2 there (in separate races of course), which should be quite a spectacle.

One might observe that there are a few northerners who have cars available for both races. Assuming nothing changes over the off-season.

There might be a few Southerners too?

Probably not many Midlanders though. I can think of two.

I would not have raced 50 years ago, not at Oulton and anywhere else, before the Stewart campaign, yes

I really love Oulton, I just respect it, never had an off there, and still won about half my trophies there

HSCC Brands Indy versus Snetterton

I think the problem about the HSCC late September slot in general is.

The Goodwood Revival usually is 2nd weekend of September
usually followed the weekend after by Spa.

This forces the HSCC meeting towards the end of the month,
and that is very close to the Finals date

also many drivers, having done either Goodwood or Spa then tend to skip the HSCC in September to rejoin the train in October for the Finals.

i did just that for a long time

so that has been for a while a bit of a difficult one to get entries for
