Thanks Nigel :thumleft:
I was just about to contact you to see if you had sent the passes out yet.
I have booked a flight back the day before so will be on the stand with everyone to make sure the day goes smooth :)
That's commitment for you ;)
Stands looking very good now :thumleft:
We still have some track places left if anyone else wants track time and you can still pay on the gate for stand space with us.

It's not our decision, the Circuit have complete control over their circuit policy.
Your car is 1/3rd the weight of an RX-8 and opinion on whether it is safer or not may vary with your fellow track users as the closing speeds in the braking zone will be quite phenomenal of course :o

I think the answer should be a clear "no" to the Westy and to slicks (circuit rules) as in my view an RX8OC exclusive session should be purely for RX8s, 7s are usually allowed as often drivers are ex 8 owners.

In an ideal world Chris the club could book a track session and fill it with RX8's, and also not have 2 supported events on the same day, but this is not an ideal world so given the choice between some non RX8 participation or no track session I would choose some non RX8's. Also as you won't be there you can hardly object. The Westfield does have an RX8 engine anyway so does count.
