The exact timing is not known at the moment but all will be welcome to look around the Brooklands exhibits before the awards presentation in the afternoon. Would all award winners please let me know if they will be able to attend.
Registration has been received from the MSA for the 2017 Southern Autotest Championship and the regs are here. We have continued with the extra points for beating other competitors in the class whilst the main championship points are still based on the relative position to other championship entrants. At the moment there will be a latish start to the 2017 championship season and if there are clubs that you know of that are running suitable tarmac or grass autotests please get in contact with me. We do regret the clash of dates for two weekends with both tarmac and grass events on at the same time. However, it is not easy to obtain venues and organisers and we hope that you will be able to find 6 events that are suitable for you. Don’t forget that organising/marshalling on a round can also score you points.
I hope to see you at either Brooklands or at an event during 2017.
Happy Autotesting in 2017,
Southern Autotest Championship
