No official statment just told on the phone by the organiser that the car is now too fast.
I just cannot understand the logic of the organiser. It will be interesting to follow the series and see if the next car which is consistently the fastest gets banned to. Where is the incentive to develop a car if it gets one banned?

If they don't get banned as well thats ridiculous... Maybe everyone else on the grid should just get more competitive.. Isn't that the point of racing series'..? To you know... RACE?!

Has anyone actually complained about you though? That’s the usual way of things in racing rather than one person just making an arbitrary decision.
You are well out if it Clive and the series will be all the poor for your moving on.

Just caught up on this thread - what a jaffing joke. At least you're doing the Rotary lineage proud of dominating to the point they ban you. Herbert and Co. would be proud.

In my time managing, owning a team of downhill mountain bike racers, I found its the backstabbing gutless snowflakes that whinge and moan about things to everyone but the person they are criticising.
Human nature it seems.

Brilliant, one little change to drop the LLC and Anaheim CA replacing with EUROPE and that’s it.
Now can anyone get a price to have these produced as stickers?

look like £67 for 150 with a 2.5" diameter bigger sizes makes the price go up so for 5" diameter is something like £220 for 150 (this was only one website that I checked) might be worth checking out how much it is for the place that does the club stickers?

How were you informed and what was actually stated?
Could it be that your car was actually to powerful compared with your competitors as yours is around 500hp and most of the others are circa 200hp?
