    BriSCA F1 is Back

    Has the beavers account been hacked? Seriously though its good to have you back on line Jeremy. Some good points raised. People should be happy that we actually have some racing this year. Just please remember it is your choice to go or not go to a meeting. What is not your choice is if someone not social distancing/not wearing a mask coughing/sneezing/breathing on you. Wear a mask if made a condition of entry. The organisers of the meeting will be following guidelines from the council/HSE which if not followed will see all future events closed. Mr/Mrs HSE or or council official look like normal people and could be walking around on site at any point. Will I be going to a meeting? Well possibly. I will wait until the first meeting has happened and see if the covid mitigation's set up by the promotion are being followed by the public and make my mind up then.
  2. Just had a quick google and found these costings Answer: There are two TV advertising costs: buying adverts the spots between TV shows in the UK. For example, rates for the smaller digital channels start at around £50 to £150 for day time up to £150 to £300 for peak time. TV adverts during Good Morning Britain or Lorraine can cost between £3,000 – £4,000. And production costs for actually making the TV advert these can range from around £25,000 for a very simple TV commercial to £250,000 for a blockbuster TV advert with top stars and a famous music track. Daytime slots on ITV are around £3,500 to £4,500 and peak time slots can cost from £10,000 to £33,000.
  3. A vague link to this. British cycling said yesterday that we would not be doing any national level competitions until September the 1st at the earliest. Local club level activities could start in July. Regional activities in August. Like I said a vague link to stock cars but this is the only sports authority that I have heard releasing information as to when we will be able to go and compete.
  4. I looked at those and thought it didn't look to bad considering how long it has been left unoccupied and the fact that it had a certain group of tenants for a wee while. Wouldn't take a lot to reopen the place whilst it is still standing!!!
  5. Just asking for a friend but can I bring in a chair?
  6. Looking at the specs not very far! 350 CI 350 BHP 368 ft/lbs torque compared to a reasonable 434 CI SBC 500-600 BHP 500-600 torques and many more revs to play with. Would be like running a standard big block but with an 80 Kg weight advantage
  7. Thanks. I had removed all of my memories of wedges. We all used to hide when one came into the dealership! The 420 seac engine was a TVR power special and not a standard 4.2
  8. TVR used the 4.2 for the Griffith 4.3BV. It was a very limited numbers special. With a capacity of 4275cc Rover rounded the capacity down to 4.2 TVR rounded it up.

  10. Just like Leicester was, just like Coventry is supposed to
  11. There is a lovely track arena about 7 miles to the north that you could possibly turn into a track (is it to early in the closed season for an Odsal discussion?)
  12. You can just about make out the flower beds on the start finish straight!!! During the drivers briefing the drivers were all asked to try and stay off of them. At some point during the nights racing 2 certain drivers no names mentioned (242/413) managed to drive through both flower beds!!!
  13. It definitely was a stand alone race in the late nineties. That list of winners is definitely a who's who of stockcar racing Edit. Just looking back through the results it looks like it changed from a standalone race to a points chase in 2000. I think 515 started the 87 season after the Novice of the year race.
  14. Stockcars have bumpers for a reason. I am pretty sure retribution will be served.
  15. There is a topic about the delays at Sutton Bridge. Scroll down the menu a little bit!
