Exactly Brett, Werner is the best scrutineer I've seen, he uses a 0.9mm wire (or thereabouts) to measure clearance.

yep we are ready. got the stable ready and lest see how they role.  Sorry for the shadows ,but not used to taking photos in the sun !!!!😉

The rules say 13mm maximum rear tyre width. A 13mm anything is not going to 'fall through' a 13mm hole. The tech tool would need a gap of at least 13.1mm (probably more) to work this way. The rul

What motors for OLMP 25000 our 30000 RPM please.

Having driven at Hallam with these cars i would say 25000, they are doing 6.2 - 6.3's for memory ( which is very sharp around there )

Not sure if I can make it. The crazy "Hot Pit" rule might make up my mind for me.


Hot Pits were used at large races (70, 80 entries or more) so that drivers in each race could set up their pit near to the track. A pit area for each lane.


I don't where the card table idea came from but it's not right.

The Garage Heroes will be back for all classes, driving for the team will be Myself and GregC.


Greg has updated his first post with rule and motor info.

Ill let him know that ScaleAuto chassis info needs clarification.


Gary, the " hot pit " issue was discussed last week, any suggestions are welcome, as we all agree that last year was not ideal.

Brett, has anyone come up with a valid reason why we should have a "hot pit" that is nothing like real "hot pits".


My suggestion is forget about it. If you're worried about people cheating, just mark bodies and chassis at tech. Everything else can be replaced under the rules.


I'm moving house first week of September so I may not be able to make it anyway.
