actually they have shown results of all cars that are eligible as well as those entered in the championship and James & Richard faired pretty well with a 2nd and 4th overall---great work boys!!

Excelent! Just goes to show how high the standard within the SSSC is. I think it gets overlooked a lot of the time.

I really like the idea of the handicap challenge, but with our fees on top it's pricey, but not outrageous.

If they include us in the results but just marked 'eligible' we don't need to pay to join anyway.... ;)

i supsect that will change when it starts to get more popular, but for the moment its a good way of promoting it imho.
to be honest its been my concern all along is why there needs to be a fee other than to cover admin and maybe some end of year pots.
as we do this on 15 quid annually im not sure why it needs to be £35? ok its got its own website, but if there were an explanation of the fees usage id be happier. I have no issue paying an individual to administer the championship, it shoildnt rely purely on goodwill of volunteers, but it does require transparency imho

Nick i reckon your cars will surprise the TVR brigade if you do any of the rounds. As our curbs is a round i think, that shoukd swell the attendeance and we can do a bit of giant killing as a marque

THIRTY FIVE QUID :shock:

I was speaking to a guy from the LMC on their stand at the Manchester show, and he told me that their fees were £10 for the year. And that gets you discounts to their trackdays and sprints, of which a couple are on the SSSC calendar at Aintree.

Interestingly their "Factor" is slightly different from ours (for Richards car) by about 0.4% even though based on the same system. Probably different factors for tyres.

I do not have any of their data

Membership of a club does often provide a slightly reduced fee. True for Loton, Prescott and Shelsley ( although membership a lot more than £10!)

when Ben introduced the system to the SSSC the factor was changed from the TVR and iirc we have since tweaked the tyre factirs too to make it so the breadvans can keep up with the racing snakes ;-)

didnt look like a big turn out then - or are those results just a selection for the top runners.

It was a co-incidence that I was speaking to a chap named Andrew on the phone whilst he was at the event , taking pictures , and a TVR owner.
He was looking for an Essex engine :shock:

Strangely , he didnt mention a certain black GTE that was stomping on the TVR's :D

Interesting that those who paid the £5 at Ty Croes also scored points at Curbs which I assumed would not count :shock:

The 2014 CMHC calendar is out http://media.wix.com/ugd/fd72d2_6387eb9 ... 62c6b3.pdf.

Now 30 events :shock:

I suspect that most of our events are on the list, so an entry is a more attractive proposition for next year than it was for this year.

Yep, once our calendar is confirmed I think id join that too just for a bit of TVR bashing.

Nick
Could we ask/twist Steve Coxs arm into making out Curbs a TVR championship round? We would get a dozen tvrs to curbs (good for spectators and event finances) and in return we would agree to push his CMHC? Maybe even confirm a few like myself that would sign up for next season? Fair excahnge and all that ;-)

Thats interesting, and actually a bit tempting, as theres a lot down south on there, including lots of nice doubles which are not only cost effective, but you'll really get your eye in doing that too.

Ive often wondered, if it would be possible to go to curbs, test friday, saturday do a day trip to do an event at loton park, then curbs on sunday. It would be a 2hr round trip (58miles).

Last year, a large proportion of the Ferrari guys were double heading on the Sunday at Curbs - Practice at Curbs, over to Donnington for practice and timed (think it was a race), then back to Curbs for their timed runs mid afternoon...
