I'm not sure who said that but it's not correct.

If you're a member then you'll receive a copy of the annual accounts in due course.

For Clios, you have the top level BTCC supporting Cup aimed at would-be professional drivers; a club level series with a combination of old Cup cars and road-saloon spec cars; and finally a junior series for 14-17 year olds.

The junior series has already been culled last year when grid numbers could be counted on the fingers of one hand.

Similar story with Ginetta with the 4 series aimed at different levels, albeit 3 of the 4 are essentially using the same cars, just in different spec.

However, point taken. I seem to recall having the same discussion poor grid number and too many similar series chasing too few entries some ten or more years ago. Seems like nothing changes.

With the BRSCC and the Caterham ladder seems to be working (and for quite a while now).That has a ladder system which makes it probably more attractive.

I dont think all clubs are running championships/ series that should be culled due to low entries. Agree with the final point highlighted though.

The figure may not be £1.6M quoted but i cant think of another club that has asked for performance/ attendance bonds. And clubs cannot continue to 40% of its meetings at a loss. Some will make money and some will lose but 40% is unsustainable.
