tocatrucky should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Too many club level championships?

a cursory glance at club level motorsport show it appears to be bit broken at the moment.

Take the jumble MX5, every major organising club has championships for them, BRSCC, BARC, 750MC and now new for 2023 MSVR not to mention the numerous classes within existing championships. In theory you could rock up with any club and get on most of the grids that day with you little MX5.

Whilst its good to have choice, its a bit of ''too many cooks spoil the broth''. For the layman non-followerof the car, it seems the grid lining up is idetical to the one the chequered flag waved before on. BRSCCC for example have the following:

MX5 championship
MX5 clubman championship
MX5 mk4 Trophy
MX5 Supercup

Yes I accept that they are for different ages of machines but to Dennis and Doris on the spectator banking they all have Mazda mages, no roof, sound identical so must be the same, 4 grids on the average timetable is 25%. And the pattern repeats in Catherhams under the BRSCC wing where there only noticeable difference Doris and Dennis are the addition of lights and glass to or from each grid:

Caterham Academy championship
Caterham Roadsport championship
Caterham 270R championship
Caterham 310R championship

Heaven forbid the planners put both on during a weekend, 16 races with just 2 types of car!

Of course we've seen one marque/model dominating enough to be replicated across clubs bbefore, Honda Civic EP3s seem to have grids popping up everywhere lately. Is it time for a cull/merging of championships? Never mind the poorly supported ones...
