We have entered, 3 drivers at mo, just on with building car, no number no name.
Got loads to do but on with it !02/07/2017 at 10:52 am #1477chris dearParticipant
Car 146 has entered with Chris l, Dan, rob Austin and matt telling at the moment. Another car is in build so the driver line up could change.02/07/2017 at 4:37 pm #1479Philip MyattModerator
Spaces filling fast on this one, 18 UK C1 entries so far.
Get your entry in as soon as possible, first come first served, grid looks like it will be over subscribed. That will mean a reserve list.02/07/2017 at 5:50 pm #1480
Highly unlikely for us due to commitments with our other cars.
We’d also like to get some domestic race miles under the cars belt before heading for Spa.03/07/2017 at 8:49 am #1488NutmegParticipant
I don’t think we will make either as our first race will be Pembrey so not enough time to gain a Nat A license.03/07/2017 at 9:35 am #1490
Is a “B” licence not valid for Spa?03/07/2017 at 10:03 am #1491NutmegParticipant
Didn’t think so. I’m sure I read that somewhere Unless we are racing under a concession.03/07/2017 at 10:13 am #1492Caryl WillsKeymaster
All drivers need a National ‘A’ licence or above to race at Spa.
It is still possible to get 6 signatures before October. You can get 2 from the 4 hour race (as long as you have at least 1 hour seat time) at Pembrey plus another 1 from the 2 hour race at Pembrey, 2 from the 4 hour race at Cadwell and 1 if you do a days marshalling.03/07/2017 at 10:45 am #1495
Furthermore if you raced with a different club you could theoretically get 3 signatures in a weekend if you could stomach the fees – and you could keep on top of the car mechanically.
Take CSCC for example: a C1 would be eligible for New Millennium, Tin Tops and Open Series.
OK, you’d be tooling around at the back on your own. But provided you kept an eye on your mirrors and didn’t get under anyone’s wheel (there’s some quite quick stuff in all three of those series). It would be a doddle to rack up the signatures.
Something to thing about if you’re committed.03/07/2017 at 10:54 am #1497
…plus with those CSCC series races you can get some pit stop practice in as they are all 40 minute, mini enduro format for up to 2 drivers.03/07/2017 at 11:00 am #1498
So just to be clear, we are 100 % it has to be an “A” license ?03/07/2017 at 11:03 am #1499
I can’t say categorically Matt as I’ve not read the regs for the specific event.
But I’ve raced at Spa >10 times with UK MSA series and every single time it’s been mandated as MSA National A minimum.

Ok, Thanks for that Andy.03/07/2017 at 11:12 am #1502
Just had a quick chat with the licensing department at the msa and as i have held a National “A” in the past i can just send back my current “B” and £68 and upgrade so going to do that so i’m covered anyway. Ta
