Mike Sheraton should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
CTCRC Oulton Park 22nd September

Well we are now heading into the penultimate meeting of the CTCRC season and the action is sure to be closer than ever with all of the clubs championships competing as normal, including:

Classic & Historic Touring Cars (Pre 66)
Post Historic Touring Cars (Pre 74)
Group One Touring Cars (Pre 83)
Pre 93 Touring Cars (Pre 93)
Blue Oval Saloons (Fords)
Classic Thunder Saloons

So if you intend on entering, get your entries in now and be part of what could be one of the meetings of the year on one of the best tracks in the country!

A yet to be confirmed bonus is that the meeting will be run on the famous International circuit including the shell hairpin! (stay tuned for more info on this)

Yes, it is on the International circuit - I wouldn't call it a "bonus" as the International circuit is used for just about every meeting other than BTCC!

Yes but is it the one that includes Shell Oil bend as I have also been several times with the club on the 'Long' circuit only to have to do that ridiculous hairpin about 500 yards short of Shell and that just completly messes my lap up in a big powerful car slowing the thing down then struggling to get the power down out the hairpin instead of sweeping round the banked bend at Shell.

It's your choice to race the bloody thing Al!

Sounds like you should take it to America - they have plenty of tracks there with banked left-hand corners, straights and bugger all else.

Chris the fact that I choose to race the 'thing' is neither here nor there, some tracks suit the 'thing' some don't and sharp right hand hairpins with 18 plus stone of me sitting on the left hand side don't. I suppose you just want a field of euro boxes headed by Escorts and BMW's then? Tell you what I don't know what you race but if you are at Donington at the weekend pop over and see how much attention my machine gets more than whatever you are racing I'll wager, thats why I race it as you may notice I use it for advertising. OH BTW Donington is a good track for the ' bloody thing' so was Oulton before they gelded it now not worth the 200 mile journey!

BTW 2 have you driven Daytona road course? I have and suggest you try it and some of the other wonderful circuits Stateside. Why else would Cliff Ryan and others spend so much money to race them?

Look above your post for someone who races a big-engined car with lots of horsepower, but isn't moaning in pretty much every single post.

lads this is a thread about Oulton park, not a *****ing session.
And Chris I see no need for your comments about al, just seems like your trying to provoke the man.

It certainly IS a bonus if you were expecting to be using that cr@p Island hairpin!

Some people can't help it Michael, it goes over my head mate. Glad to see two other guys argee that the Island bend circuit is soooo much better and makes the slap up there worth while.

Al, I agree the full circuit is the only way, the horrible hairpin they put in for the btcc totally spoils the flow of the circuit & missis out some of the best bits, should be banned

Me too, Al. The last time I raced there with that using that ****e hairpin I vowed never to use that layout again.. No matter who says what I bet the shorter circuit will be used next week?

Don't worry about that - we've had enough marshals to cover the FULL 2.8 mile layout at Oulton for virtually every race meeting this season, so there should be a good turnout!
