Hi all,
The changes to the regulations have been submitted to the club .We are know waiting for them to be ratified .
This involves the dates being in place for the meetings as they form a part of the published regulations .
Tony the way I read the battery regulations I think only those that have been approved will be allowed .

Now that the dates are out, I presume the regs are finalised?

I have the dates for the Historic 750 formula from their newsletter but I can't find the dates on the club site.

Hi All
We have submitted the the 2019 regulations to the Motorsport UK and are waiting conformation that they have been accepted .
They are typically finalized in time for the Autosport Show .However in order to help everyone to get ready for Brands hatch these are the changes we have submitted.
1. engine fasteners are now free subject to being ferrous. This will allow us to to find a resolution to the issue that big end bolts have become difficult to source .

2.Gearboxes in the transverse engined cars are now free, subject to being synchromesh and from a transverse engined car. This will allow competitors to find a more robust replacement for the current Fiat gearbox which are not as" fit and forget" as we had hoped for.


3. the regulation that all fuel and air has to pass through the single carburetor choke has been dropped. This is so we can continue to use pump jets and starter mechanisms in Weber and Dellorto
carburetors .

4. The minimum weight limit will be 480kg for car and driver. this reflects the fact that while more people voted to increase the weight limit than to retain the current limit,There were many comments that a 490kg was probably too large an increase.
These regulations are not yet approved,But at least you know what is likely and can start to make the appropriate changes to your cars.It is unusual for Motorsport UK to not approve the regulations we submit,but please note that they are not yet finalised .
Rod.

Thanks Rod.............. the decision is a bit like Teresa May's Brexit................not really the proposal that you want but at least it's a decision and we can go forward knowing which direction that we are travelling!!! Obviously subject the UKMotorsport approval.

Dave
PS so sorry to mention the 'B' word :roll:
and a Merry Christmas to you all.
