Immediate Action Required

"HiViz” vests/bibs/jackets

I refer to the second paragraph under Marshalling in the Competitors Rules section of this  club website that has been taken directly from the BRCA handbook and reads.
"All Marshals must wear “HiViz” vests/bibs/jackets. The Marshals must wear this apparel correctly."
Being a member of the BRCA you are bound by their rules and the club have a responsibility to make sure the rules are followed.
So with immediate effect make sure you are wearing your "HiViz" when marshalling.
Vests are available from B&Q or online from around £3.00. We also have a few freshly laundered used XL vests available from race control for a small donation to the club.

21.5 Motors At SHMCC

This year it has been decided to introduce 21.5T Touring Car class to the Club Championship. This will run along side the 17.5T Touring Cars with separate heats if numbers are sufficient. The 21.5T Cars will be identified during racing by a sticker in the front window supplied by the club.
The reasoning behind this is that as technology has improved so has the performance and speed of the 17.5T class. The 21.5T motor is still very competitive but with not quite so much bite, therefore easier to handle and keep the car on the track. Ideal for the less experienced driver or if your reactions aren't too hot.

These will then be the control tyres for all club Championship Meetings for the foreseeable future. These tyres have been chosen because of their consistency in use on the track, price and that they are stocked by several different uk shops. Available for less than £25.00 a set from:

Covid Mask Wearing 

As from Wednesday 22nd September the club has decided, at least for the time being it will NOT be mandatory to wear a mask on the rostrum. This decision has been made to help drivers with glasses avoid steaming up as previously experienced in the colder weather. Obviously please still stand well spaced on the rostrum and respect the wishes of other competitors who still wish to wear masks.
