Just six entries for the FF race. Pretty poor show from HSCC again

Revised timetable : http://www.ccracingclub.co.uk/assets...19-V2-Word.pdf

Back in Howard's day he would have binned a 6 car race. Best CCRC can do is move it to first qually and race, giving spectators more time in the morning to wander the paddock and a longer lunch.

I always used to enjoy the double header when they combined their finals day with the autumn classic a while back, it made the trip worthwhile but 2 separate stand alone events don't appear to work very successfully for anybody and sadly this weekend looks like washout in more ways than one.

It works for me a fabulous meeting and I'm looking forward to it enormously, even with the odd thin grid. Hope the sun shines this year for a change.

I've been to every CC classic, supporting my local circuit, and will be there again next weekend. As long as the other grids are decent then all will be well.

Due a dry Classic surely

:I'm not knocking the classic, It was just an observation of mine. I've always loved Combe, I was there for the club finals a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy this weekend, at least the weather forecast has improved.

Fully agree. One poor grid won't spoil a great day at a great old circuit. Just seems HSCC can't get support for any place they have guest grids

I think it depends on the series.

There may be some late entries I suppose.

Entries in some championships seem to have moved from feast to famine this year.

I do think this year's calendar has not worked for the HSCC. Using FF1600 has an example, any driver wishing to do the full championship, plus this non-championship race would be at a meeting once a fortnight from mid May to late October. It is a big ask.
