    To be honest apart from Swaffham and Scunthorpe other tracks being mentioned would need big investment and in some cases a total rebuild to host f1. Whether they were in the orci or not. Dropping start money and prize money wouldn't fix this either

    Just out of interest, what non orci tracks in the North/Midlands were you thinking of?
  3. I live in Hednesford and can't see any real way of having a world final there again sadly. All the area they used for parking is now houses and locals are always moaning when there is a big meeting on. Plus they seem to struggle to get permission for a Saturday night meeting. As for Buxton I think the promoter will do a great job, my only concern is there isn't much room there off the racing line so could result in a lot of stoppages and pileups at the start. But who knows, Gota get next year out the way first anyway!
  4. Great meeting, the better of the 2 racing wise this weekend. Lots of bumper and incident and the Dutch drivers were brilliant again! Dotd - 166 Rr - 10
  5. I would lose 2 foreign entrants, not to everyone's taste I know.
  6. I still think it would make it better for fans and drivers alike if there was 4 places up for grabs
  7. How about keeping 2 semi meetings but run both races at each meeting the top 10 scorers from each grid over the 2 races go through. I'd also like to see 4 places from the consolation semi and lose 2 spots for foreign entrants (not popular I'm sure).
  8. I think you have to do a certain amount of meetings in a grading period to change grade up or down, maybe that explains it.
  9. He went home before drivers briefing anyone know why?I imagine a problem with the new car, hopefully be back today fingers crossed
  10. If you turn left at the island before the landor Street turning, you can follow that road until you get to some traffic lights. Turn right at the lights and your on the road that everyone parks on opposite the track entrance. Should be easy enough to see on Google maps, despite my poor description!
  11. What happened to the field behind the track they used for parking a few years ago? I parked in there a couple of times and it was really convenient. I presume its gets used for something else by the landowner these days?
  12. Same for us, working Saturday so looking at getting there about 4.30 so any info on the parking situation would be appreciated
  13. I imagine he was referring to free passes with drivers etc

    Still think Bristol would of been a nice addition on an empty weekend, make it a qualifier and something for the low graders too. Strong base of stock car fans down that way that might be pursuaded to travel to a few f1 meetings after seeing them on their doorstep!
  15. Thought the minis and the v8's were much better than the F1s once again last night. Miss the excitement of driver rivalries and end to end racing. Credit to hinesy in the gn for abit of action though! Thought Liam Gilbank had a good debut too. Good quick turn around from startrax too. R/r f1 only was 5/10 Dotd - 515 - did what he needed to do
