Its a little early to have confirmed dates but we are working towards a similar programme for 2021 as 2020 was supposed to be.
It will be much later in the year before dates are finalised.
It definitely has to be the FIA padding and it needs to be on the cage where the driver can make contact with it.
If you have testing booked on the Friday then Silverstone have a copy of our garage plan and should allocate you to the same garage that you will use for the race. In this case you will have access from 7pm on the Thursday.
Discussions are ongoing with Silverstone about access for those not testing.
We will have to vacate the paddock area behind the garages by 11pm on the Sunday night as Silverstone have an event on the Monday, however they will let anybody who wants to stay over move to the centre 1 car park until Monday morning.
It will be the Belgian scrutineers who carry out the checks at their races. They usually manage to find something that does not cause a problem in the UK.
If it’s the first time the car will have been scrutinised I would try and get it looked at before you go by a set of experienced eyes to ensure that you don’t get caught out.
Hi John. Speak to Nankang UK on 0121 500 010 and see if that’s possible.
A few points to clarify what is happening with the ECU’s.
1) There has been quite a lot of murmuring about cars with extra performance due to modified ECU’s and the extra power available.
2) The object of this exercise is to ensure that there is a level playing field for everyone.
3) It is not a criteria of this exercise to find more power, the engines are intrinsically reliable and we do not want to affect that.
4) We will not be changing the standard rev limit.
5) Over 150 ECU’s have now had their maps downloaded, this has provided a very valuable database for scrutiny. Thank you to everyone who has sent their ECU to be read.
6) The parameters of the new “club map” will not stray outside anything on the OE versions.
To be clear, we are not looking for any power enhancements, its purely equivalency.

The first stage was purely a data collection process, the maps on the Ecu’s have been downloaded and stored, no changes have been made yet.
There are a number of variations to both hardware and software supplied as standard fitment by Citroen and we needed to understand all the variables so that the upload will be compatible with all the different types.
We haven’t started the upload process yet, that will commence when its all been thoroughly tested.
Hi Symon, as soon as we have the finalised map available we’ll send out a request to everyone to send ECU’s in for update.
Looks like it will be a couple of weeks yet.

I’m sorry but your race entries are not transferable, we have a reserve list of paid up entries that are waiting for withdrawals.
What you are suggesting would allow someone to get around the reserve list, that’s why we have that policy in place, it has to be fair for everyone.
Draft v2 will be out shortly, included in that will be that Honda Civic drop link rods with part number 90112SE0000 will be permitted.
I’ve not encountered your ecu problem so I can’t be much help. Have you connected a fault reader to it?
You are correct that it is not allowed to remap the ECU. Do you have any history for the car?
Steering lock – as the car is still road legal it doesn’t need the steering lock to be disabled.
I’m still working on getting more dates and hope to have something to announce in the next couple of weeks.
Organising dates for 2019 has been made much more difficult by the closure of Rockingham, an awful lot of race days were held at Rockingham by all the different organising clubs, all these days now need to be spread around the other circuits in what is a pretty congested calendar.
Getting track time for a 3-6hr race is much harder still as about 10 other championships can be accommodated in the same period as one of our races, add into that mix the planning issues that many circuits face and the preferences by all competitors for the major circuits.
There is still time for it to all shake down the tree a bit more, rest assured if there is anything that can be added to the calendar it will be.
We had hoped that we would be at Spa for a 24hr in early April, a number of different factors has led to this event being cancelled.
Spa in October will still happen but how many grid slots can we get? The rate of growth of the C1’s means that a grid in excess of 160 will be required in 2019 to give us the grid slots that we would like. This size of grid is unlikely, we will be negotiating hard with the Belgiums to get as many grid slots as possible, however, our negotiating position has been weakened somewhat by the fact that they agreed that we could take all our 55 entries this year but in the end only 44 turned up. They were disappointed, to say the least, that that we didn’t fill our allocated grid slots.
Watch this space.
Send me the car reg number, VIN number and MOT date and I’ll get a number allocated to you.
