Yes, but they also had "bag tanks" and breathers.

You always need a breather but the FIA requirement is for a foam filled tank. You can use a standard tank if you wish just fill it with foam.

Back on the max driver time aspect, if it was 3hrs on 3hrs off how about the 6 hour split into 2 with other races inbetween. Would that take away the 'glamour'? Plus it would allow cars that have technical difficulties a chance to resume racing if a repair is made albeit with time/laps lost. Don't forget that if we're not talking spa then I'm guessing the max grid size will be in the thirties............we could end up with only a few cars circulating for a couple of hours which would be tedious.

As was mentioned earlier,in order to have a decent sized grid,the circuit length would need to be in excess of 2 miles in length,again limiting the choice.Two three hours over a weekend could work though.

Hi Podd, sorry I couldn't make it to Oulton, would definately be up for this, as I am sure a lot of people would. FWIW, the length of track time IMHO would make up for long distance travel to the circuit for all involved.

What about a relay format to partially save older cars from the rigours of a 6 hour race, & to ease concerns over refuelling/ tyre changes etc? I know there's the Birkett but I'm thinking more of teams of two or three in order to differentiate.

Cars compete in the Spa 6hrs and re fuel with no major, or even minor, concerns. As long as there are pumps and fire marshals it can be done.

Yes Peter but they have both the space and configuration which makes it both safe and practical. Apart from Silverstone (as configured for the Britcar 24 hours) and maybe current Donington (if you used the Melbourne loop) I can't immediately think of any other UK circuit that could accomodate it. Plus there's a big aversion in the UK to permit races with refuelling - in Europe they seem to have a more 'creative' attitude!

For "Creative" read,could'nt give a toss. Like the photograph from one event at Spa fuel pumps last year with a marshal with a ciggy on the go!

I wasn't so concerned about the refuelling issues - although anything that can be done to save on refuelling infrastructure costs a la Britcar 24 hrs is a good thing - but more the ability of a lot of club racing cars to last 6 hours without needing fettling. And I would be hoping for an event that a large proportion of budget conscious clubman can enter. A relay format may just give cars (and drivers) enough time to cool down, be checked over & tightened up for everyone's benefit, without needing the help of a full on professional team in support.
