Round 08 Loton Park

Supplementary Regulations for Loton Park are available here

Saturday 20th July is an invited non championship event

Sunday 21st July is an Championship Round.

This event in July is popular so book early to avoid being on the reserve list.

 

Online Entries are available https://www.hdlcc.com/enter-online

 

I’ve asked for a PDF of the paper entry form and will circulate when it arrives.

As you may have heard there have been issues at Loton Park resulting in the event being extremely over subscribed.

I don't know what's happened but suspect it is something to do with there move to online entry and someone has not set a maximum entry on the system.

As a result a number of championships have either had there invite withdrawn or there numbers restricted.

We have had 35 entries submitted for the championship round on Sunday, this has been restricted initially to Twenty Five.

Our first 25 were all entered in February, the remaining 10 were entered in March onwards and will go on the reserve list.

As the HDLCC web site has no information about the entry list for this meeting then how long do they expect people to hang on waiting to know if they are in or not

With travel and accomodation often being the most expensive part of the weekend (if cancelled) not for the first time the L7C seems to being treated as a second class citizen.

Graham the final say sits with HDLCC, and i've been advised that they are working on the finalised entry list to get out as soon as possible.

At present our allocation includes all entries submitted before the end on Feb, we may get additional entries if people drop out but I can't give you a definate answer until the list comes out.

I would point out that several championships have had there invitations pulled and entries withdrawn, and this is affecting all competitors including HDLCC Members.

Grahame.  Yesterday I received an e-mail with Finals, Entry list and Paddock layout.  Your name is included on the list of entries in Class 3.

See you there.

'Nice to be back at Loton park for a summer date rather than the April date that we've had for the last couple of years.

I managed to remain sensible, and make small improvements on each run (unlike Saturday where I visited the grass at Fallow a couple of times...)

I'm sure my almost 2 second improvement in PB was more affected by a resurfaced track, and much warmer weather.

I've posted my video here:-

Fantastic to watch and will be trying very hard  to emulate next year!!

Well done all, it was a great weekend.

I also had fun "most" of the time!

I also had a quick look at past record times etc for the no Class 6 cars.

My previous best was a 55.04

Mark D - 55.84

Shaun - 54.15 (Current Record - old surface no tyre warming - 56.25)

Adrian Williams - 54.65

Darren Luke 53.17 - (Just been chatting with him - nothing between the years - plenty of Kahunas between the leg Mark :-)

By the way Darren has reluctantly decided to sell his 1585cc Busa that set this time.  Message me if you are interested.

I just did 53.44 on the new tarmac.

Its good to see a wide range of approaches to the hill!!!!!

My run looked nothing like any of the above.

Remember the film Driving Miss Daisy  Rotate 

Seriously, I was very pleased with my 60. something, but you are not seeing it for anything!!!!!
