Test of Control Additive for Shoot Out

April 22nd, 2013 by Trevor Coult

From Russ Giles, 12th Circuit Chairman regarding the CARS/AMC Shoot Out round 1:

The section committee have made the request that the first shoot out is run with Spider only, Kevin has agreed to this request.
To ease the problems on the day for many of the competitors, the section has funded 25 tins of Spider and supplied these to Kevin to distribute to the competitors as he sees fit. Kevin collected these yesterday.

After we see how the meeting runs, and the feedback from the competitors is understood, the club will make the call as to what will be used at subsequent shoot outs.

With what we have seen at the WKRCC national, we are expecting no problems.

CARS/AMC Summer Shoot Out VI Round 3 Date Change

August 6th, 2012 by Trevor Coult

Round 3 of the Shoot Out has now been moved to Sunday 2nd September, the same date as our round of the BRCA GT10 and F1 nationals. There are several reasons for this.

1. The low number of entries for the national made it not viable to run on it’s own. Combining the two meetings makes it possible.

2. Running the Shoot Out on the bank holiday meeting meant we would lose 2 hours of running time and also have limited time for setting up.

3. In a poll of drivers at the last Shoot Out it was clear that it was the option that would gain the most drivers overall even though we would also lose some.

What you need to do.

If you race GT10 or F1 and want to run at this round of the Shoot Out you need to enter the national on the BRCA web site. All GT10 and F1 entries for the Shoot Out will be deleted.

If you race anything else and will be racing on 2nd September, enter as normal. If you have already entered you need do nothing except turn up on the correct day!

If you have entered but can’t race on 2nd September please email us at shootout.entries@carsrcracing.co.uk to cancel your entry.
