Combe is oversubscribed, and I can’t get in :twisted: so that’s it for this year unfortunately :(

I enquired and they said the reserve list was small - didn’t enter as I had a response from Wiscombe first (to make my 8 events).

It was pointed out that if I did a 9th event and could get a 21.28 at Combe I’d overtake Steve in CM

If it takes you an extra event to beat me Jim, I’ll not be upset by that :lol: :w

Seriously though, I would’ve done nine too if Croft hadn’t been cancelled last minute. Hopefully next season it’ll be more stable for us Northerners with Aintree taking its place.

I’m already getting excited about 2020. Great four way battle this year, and so so close at the end. Now Phil and Andy are finding their feet, and hopefully a few more coming out and doing eight events next season, it’ll be epic!!!

I set myself a mission to beat the natural competitors to the SS1 - the NA MX-5's. Think I've managed it..

Now to set sights a bit higher - will see what the final scores are and set another challenge.

I notice that some CM competitors have done 9, 10, 11, 12, even 13 events. Conversely, nearly half of the 74 entrants won’t do the minimum 8 to qualify.

CM Chairman wrote:Good day people,
Graham has a busy day so has asked me to send out the results from Goodwood yesterday.
It was a busy day of 5 runs (2 practice and 3 timed) and despite the cool conditions the times just got better and better. Roger Fish and Matt Rowe made the very long trip down from Lancs and Cheshire to give Howard a run for his money; Howard had had the supercharger repaired and was good to go. It was going to be an exciting day. I won't spoil the write-up for this week's contributor, but I can tell you that the new leaderboard is delicately poised for a big time shoot out at Castle Combe in a couple of weeks.
Howard returns to the top of the leaderboard and we have Steve Lyle and Roger Fish tied for joint 2nd place. I don't think we've ever seen that before. As you can see, there are sufficient points available from Combe (including improvements) for either Howard or Steve to win the championship outright. Definitely worth going along, even if you're not driving. The late Castle Combe event on a potentially dark and wet October Saturday always brings thrills and spills, and there is always the chance that the 2nd timed run may not happen so it's important to bank a time in T1. I shall be there taking a few photos in the gloom.

On a quite different note, I was sorry that neither Steve Hill nor Roger Coote has run at a sprint this year, hence they can only have their best 7 events on the board. Steve's average from his 7 events is the highest in the championship and his consolation is that he will win Hillclimber of the year. For clarity I should point out that Classic Marques is a Speed Championship and not a hillclimb or sprint championship which is why the rules do not allow 8 hillclimbs or 8 sprints to count for the premier award.

While I think of it, please make sure to tell Mr Everett if you're going to our dinner and presentations evening in November. PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT OUR DELAYED AGM WILL TAKE PLACE AT 3PM ON THE AFTERNOON OF THE DINNER. MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW.

Best regards
Steve

Are any Scimiars entered for Castle Combe Saturday 19 October?
I don't want to drive over then find none of our crowd there...

Looking at the entry list, no. I think the last runner of this season was Nick Keyser at Goodwood.

“CM Comp Sec” wrote: Evening All,

Castle Combe proved to be every bit as exciting as billed. We also had warm autumn sunshine – not bad for October.

The championship was finally settled and may I be the first to officially congratulate Howard Barnard on another championship win. Congratulations too (and commiserations) to Steve Lyle who threw everything into his two timed runs yesterday and despite an excellent red 25 on the day, he couldn’t catch Howard’s points total, but instead broke the tie for 2nd place in his favour and pushed Roger Fish into 3rd place in the championship overall. Fine driving by all throughout the season and exceptionally committed driving yesterday from Howard and Steve. On more than one occasion I thought we were going to be sweeping up bits of Porsche or Mazda or both! Mark Everett also had a good day and was putting on a Castle Combe driving lines masterclass in the Griffalo. It was all a pleasure to watch.

So on the day it was Steve Lyle 1st, Howard Barnard 2nd and Mark Everett 3rd. I’ll let Trevor give you the finer details in his Oily Rag edition in due course.

Attached you’ll find the final championship positions in our last points and leaderboard for 2019. What a season! Classic Marques never fails to deliver and 2019 has been another fabulous year.

So, before we do it all again next year, please do come along to the dinner, especially if you are up for an award. We don’t do video-link presentations! Mark Everett has been emailing you with all the details. It’s always a fun evening. We’ll have lots of awards to present and all those moments from your 2019 season can be relived with your fellow competitors and partners over a nice meal and a glass or two of your favourite tipple.

I’ll see you there.

Mid table is nothing to be ashamed of in your first season - first and third novices and the guy that came second did 20 events!

Man maths says if I ignore our bad runs mid season (especially at Harewood #2 and Loton) and ran with the general averages then we could have been top 20’s which will do nicely.
