    BriSCA F1 is Back

    That’s the problem with the current system where promoters own dates. When one promoter decides not to stage half of the dates the sport is crippled. It may work when all are getting along but now we have a fall out it doesn’t. Further more of Deane decides to not stage F1 for a few years there is not a lot the drivers can do about it as long as they are tied to race only at ORCi tracks.
  9. All is quiet as yet is this the lull before the storm🤔?
  10. Boston was a Sunday shale track Kings Lynn used to be on a Sundayand so was Skeggie for a while
  11. I've never really noticed this as most F1 meetings I've done are Belle Vue, Buxton, Hednesford, Northampton, Stoke and Sheffield which looking at it Stoke was the only track I normally saw F1's on a Saturday night.

    What a guest to get into an F1 next Uk weekend at Skeggie come on Mr Kelita you can do this and would make good publicity for Skeggie and the whole sport. He’s nuts enough to have a go at anything that’s noisy with an engine.
  15. That’s how I always think of racing, shale under lights, tar in the sun. maybe night time racing on shale helps with keeping moisture in the surface, no blazing sun ????
  16. Traditionally, from when I first started following F1 Stock Cars in the late 70's/early 80's, I have always perceived Saturday nights as being shale racing (Coventry, Leicester, Long Eaton, Crewe...etc) and Sunday afternoons as tarmac racing (Northampton (tar), Aycliffe, Hednesford... etc) but I have always wondered how true this actually is. Carl, would the "Since 1954" data be able to throw any light on this as to how true the perception is of Saturday shale and Sunday tarmac? Could it tell is what percentage of Saturday night racing has actually been on shale compared to tarmac and what percentage of Sunday afternoon racing has been on tarmac compared to shale. Is there a significant tendency towards Saturday shale and Sunday tarmac or is the split between surfaces on each day nearer to 50/50 than I recall? If there is a tendency towards Saturday's being on shale and Sunday's being on tarmac, are there any historical reasons for this?

    Indeed. We pass it on the way to Skeg. There's a load of history about it on display in The Marrowbone & Cleaver pub in Kirmington village. Owned and occasionally run by Guy Martin off the telly.

    Like I said.... controversial! 😁 Looks like Humberside forgot to rename their airport. 🤣 Whatever county or unitary authority it is, the region that covers Birmingham, Perry Barr, Cradley Heath, Wolverhampton, Hednesford? Hampshire: Aldershot, Portsmouth, Ringwood, Southampton ?

    Officially these days it is but so is Rochdale but try telling either there not Lancastrians or Mancs for that matter and they wont have it. There is a Lancashire rose on the Man City badge. Edit to add..Carl you beat me to it😁

    Well, I did say it would be controversial! 😆 Lancashire was a lot bigger in the 1950s and included Manchester, Wigan, and Liverpool. (And Bolton, Carrot Cruncher! 😜) Most of the counties have changed over time so you get all sorts of oddities. The original Belle Vue was in Lancashire but the second one was in Greater Manchester. Only the first Scunthorpe was in Lincolnshire, the other two were in Humberside. Staines was in Middlesex when the track was running, but it's now in Surrey, which is also in Greater London. And so on...
