It would appear that predictions of Elinas and Domit not turning up at Knockhill were wide of the mark. They're both on the timesheets from today's practice/testing sessions!

I am trying to get some sort of comment from the organizers. I will post if by chance they respond.

I gather than the boys money was transferred on Wednesday which allowed them to race this weekend. I still think they are paying themselves and there was definitely no representative from the Grand Prix Shootout with them at Knockhill.

Actually David Fleming was there. Spoke to him several times over the weekend. Good result for Tio as well in race 2 whatever your view on pretty dubious driving standards by some!

I have an interview in the works about the 2010 Grand Prix Shootout. We will see what they see but on the surface it looks good.

No mention of the Shootout for 6 months and no news on the website? Has this scheme died? Testing days were meant to have started in October but no info regarding who if any have signed up? No free entry for the festival winner either?

Does anyone know if this has now gone under?

Accounts for the company were meant to have been submitted to companies house by the 3rd February 2010 and still have not been submitted so it doesnt look good. Their is a proposal to strike off the company and shut it down by companies house

Did Elinas end up funding himself in FF? I followed this shootout on its website last winter and the prize was a season in FBMW Europe wasn't it? They never work out these things. Looked quite professional at the time given the talent of the entrants, and with Danny Watts and Stephen Jelly as coaches. At least we got to see how good Elinas is. Dean Stoneman was one of the entrants, good job he didn't win it!!

Is it time the MSA got involved in some of these scams and stopped them from happening unless they can produce a valid business plan otherwise it just makes a mockery of our sport. Both the Grand Prix Shootout and RPM Formula Renault Scholoarship both seem to have taken hard earned money from want to be racing drivers and the winner doesnt seem to have got what was promised.

Okay Tio got through a season of Formula Ford....just and I am not sure who actually paid for it. But the organiser of the Shootout is deleting Facebook posts on a daily basis from drivers who have paid the best part of 8,000 to enter the scholarship but not had much else from the payment. It doesnt look good when the holding company for the Shootout hasnt supplied accounts to companies house and it now 14 months behind...http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/fb...prodorder?ft=1

Similar things can be said regarding the RPM Scholoarship as the winner James Tucker has not even recieved enough money to buy his lunch never mind a season in Formula Renualt which was the prize. It is interesting that the organisers of this "scholarship" have now changed the terms & conditions and the winner wins a management contract.....not worth the paper it is written on as a management contact doesnt get you a drive.

So James Tuckers has had to pull out of single seater driving a year after making good progress in the British Formula Ford Championship he is racing this weekend in stock cars in Skegness...not quite the Brands Hatch Grand Prix curcuit that he expected to be driving on.....

So these schemes are still promoting people to part with cash for "this years" scholarship...how do we get them stopped and more importantly regulated in the future...

Maybe the MSA can give an official licence to future schemes?

why do people always want to promote a prize in a high cost formula? Formula Renault costs the best part of 200k to do well. Why dont they pick a northern or a southern winner to race in regional Formula Ford. Lets face it, it is their first season and is what they should be racing anyway. Why put the stress of trying to bank 200k plus operating costs when most of the entries would give their right arm just to be on a circuit racing.......

Might give the MSA a call....

Well apparently from last June Cyprus Airways sponsored Tio in Formula Ford, but in July a GPShootout entrant was asked to make payment (of their entrance fee) directly to JTR, so they were obviously still owed money or maybe that was to cover Dani's racing.

That wasn't a one-off either, another guy around the same time was asked to make payment to a "friend" of David Felming's, which turned out to be a tyre supplier who had never met him. These debts probably explain the lack of accounts.

Another potentially important point, most people (if not all) paid 2,500, the price earlier last year. One person had an assessment, in South Africa (I think), but no one else has had one. David said he was going to refund my money in installments starting the second half of this January (as I took legal action), then Tio was announced in FRUK on Jan' 26th, and I've never heard from David since.

For anyone who's interested I took screenies before David deleted comments from the facebook page. Now he's changed the settings so no one can post on that or his personal profile:
