defender47 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Masters Historic Donington 8/9 June 2019

Hi,

I have place on the NKGTTC grid at the Masters Historic but cannot make it.

We run '66-'81 FIA spec. Tin Top and sports cars. 25 min qualy and three 25 min races.

Normal price is Euro 550 but I can offer discount to anybody who might want to take my spot.

Please email: defender47@btinternet.com

Many thanks

Paul

Another disappointing entry for the Supertourers, (sigh).

There needs to be a clear decision soon as whether to continue with the SuperTourers as there is sum thing massively wrong at the mo. I fully understand that they are expensive to maintain and run, parts are hard to find etc etc but its now getting to the stage were its looking rather sad and a bit daft.

Its only a 4 round calendar this year so you would have though that was manageable. The cars are out there, having seen them with my own eyes at Silverstone Classic and other meetings in the past so what is stopping them coming out now?

Yep, they managed some respectable grids until 2018 when I think the rot began to set in. Undoubtedly they are expensive to run, however have the running costs gone up significantly in 2 years?

I have no doubt they are massively expensive to run, but are they more expensive to run than, say, a 1980s F1 or F2 car? There seems to be a fair few of them racing in historics.

And there you have it. If they're as expensive to run as an F2 car, why not run an F2 car?

Imagine the conversation down the Ferret and Trouser Leg.

"Yes, I race a Vauxhall Vectra. Here's st picture, it looks like the rep car your dad used to drive."

Or

"I race a Formula Two car. Here's a picture. Yes it was just one step down from Formula One in its day, all the stars drove one in their way up."

I know which I'd rather have in my garage.

I suspect they are more expensive than an F1 or F2 car of the era we are thinking of. The technology and modifications used I building an ST are quite beyond the normal simply installed engine in a specially designed single seater.

The Mondeo comes to mind as being particularly complicated.

I suspect you are right, but they seem to be popular in NZ, and yet they couldn't afford to run them back in the day, and developed much cheaper “Schedule S” (later FIA Group N+, or Super Production) rules instead.

Just a quick one for anyone thinking of going, large sections of the infield are closed off due to prep work for Download festival. Inside turn 1, start of craners and back straight fenced off.

Well qualifying was interesting. Lost electrics and no wipers etc. We're 3rd from last. Hey ho if this rain keeps up I'm just going to potter around. Haven't driven the car since 2017 so trying to get used to it.

My wife asked me earlier in the week if Download was this weekend. Probably based on the Weather forecast - this is classic Download weather.

However with a complete absence of large stacks of beer and other drinks at the Co-op yesterday it was clear that there was no way this was also a Download weekend ...

Unusual, I think, to use the infield in recent times. Maybe the idea this year is to channel movement from the camp site to the main stage across the centre of the circuit rather than around the outside. Unless, of course, they have a completely new location for various parts of the event.

I, too, thought that Download in recent years had been outside the circuit boundary.
