Usually great racing right through the programme however it is up to the drivers to provide that -sometimes no matter the number of entrants in a particular race it can be a procession yet sometimes a small field will put on sensational dicing.
Supercars can field 26 cars yet processions regularly occur unfortunately.
Can I assume you are the Oldfart that posts on The Roaring Season and is now resident in the UK

Never assume anything -I am not the person you are referring to and have never been to the UK.
I have been around motor sport since the mid 50s and have been a club level competitor,office bearer and a volunteer race official with a continuous involvement since the early 60s.

I am aware that you are a regular poster on The Nostalgia Forum and if I remember correctly from something in one of your posts somewhere along the way we could be from the same area.

The state racing series in Victoria is similar - Qualy & races all day Saturday, with Sunday continuous racing all day, the Nationals have let it self down in recent years with less categories on the bill now than before.

Given that, some longer races can be good depending on the quality of the field.

As stated, the Cams Nationals is designed for the benefit of competitors NOT spectactors.

I agree that a poor Formula 4 field is a shame, compared to the great fields and close racing that Formula Ford produces. But F4 is CAMS' baby so on the program it goes...

Fair play for Integra DC5 drivers to battle on with it, as the suspension geometry is truly terrible compared to the earlier Integra DC2. [The DC5 has massive bumpsteer, a wacky minivan steering rack, and of course no camber gain with the McPhearson strut)

I'm fine the the age and variety of eligible cars, but the sheer expense some are going to, is downright insane for what is intended to be entry level motorsport.

Hearing you but then again that kinda defines motorsport in some ways doesn't it? There will always be people (whether or not they can really afford it) who just want to keep doing more and more and spending more and more on their race car.
