Olly and I hope to make Snetterton. We certainly plan to race next year. Covid 19 has made life very challenging this year. Olly was stuck in New Zealand when we and they went into lockdown. We got him home and he cane to us for several weeks after quarantining before restarting work. During that time he helped me with design work for Carbinium and we were not able to spend any time on the car. Like many other I have had to prioritise the business, especially as it is infancy. Once Olly left us to go to work he has not been able to return due to current rules.

Given the extraordinary times and the fact that the calendar has been cancelled, revised, cancelled etc I think it would be churlish if the MSA to warn anyone this year. We all want to race when we can but we can only find racing from income and I am afraid that has had to be my priority pretty much seven days a week.

We look forward to seeing you all as soon as we can.

Great to hear from you Ben. It certainly has been challenging for most and I agree with your thoughts but most other formula at the two venues we have been to this year had substantially larger grids than the 750's. Having said that, it does not mean that I also would think it very harsh if we were to be penalised and I guess this drive for gathering info of those intending to race next year at the very least enables us to prove that we are not down on numbers in reality and the culbs investment in our formula is safe.

Really hope you make Snetterton, I for one look forward to meeting you. Thank you for confirming for next year too.

So we now have 24 and I am yet to hear from Bob Simpson, Ian Barley, Dave Hodkin and Dan Welsh but my guess is that we can count on them. If that is the case then we are up to 28 which I think is very respectable. Ulric has also not confirmed yet and we have 4 cars for sale, I am getting a good feeling now. Thanks everyone who has commented and sent messages, great stuff.

We just need to find some new people to buy them. Steve and myself are still thinking of ways to promote the Championship and I might have a good lead for doing this.

Watch this space. :+:

I don't think you'll see Paul Mason in 2021. He's still finishing his H750F car to race.
Another name though - Dave Watts? Roger Rowe's son-in-law. Not sure on completion schedule but their re-engineering a car as we speak.
