120 should be enough for an national outlaw series! What you think sow&steady?

Cheers

Some people will do anything to get into the Euros! Well, that filter certainly works wonders!

I assume that the 25 is already filled with sponsored drivers. The rule is that you must have done 6 nationals so sponsored drivers have not only done that but they're also probably the top 25 in terms of ranking.
i believe the way it works, there hoping for 25-30 places, which will be split and offered too the top rubber drivers and foam 200mm drivers, but there is still a chance of getting in, because the meeting is for 150 drivers, and at the efra agm next week all european countries ask for how many spots they would like, and i believe what evers left may be up for grabs, but it will cost more.

Ummm, you don't have to go out and buy a 3 port engine just to be legal, do you? Just get a 3 port piston sleeve (which you would replace anyways your worned out 5 port piston sleeve) and perhaps the legal crankshaft and you should be done.

What about making the proposals public well before the meeting and be given a method of voting if we cant make the meeting.

Any comments?

Cheers
please note we have ONLY adopted the technical rules the race format will be as per BRCA
you WERE given the chance to vote by being at the AGM, the propsals WERE made public at least one month before thats why so many rubber drivers turned up to prevent the new class going in with it. ( foam drivers also voted to stop it)
Outlaw drivers were there and THEY voted for the EFRA class

you CAN still run your outlaw stuff at the nationals but only on the saturday in practice
