Hi Guys looking forward to joining you next year. Just a quick question can brake braided hoses be used in the standard production class ? ... See moreSee less

Glenn StocktonI would say yes to this, as no performance advantage, harder pads also but many only use standard pads due to short time on the track.But bigger caliper or discs would be a nono

Nick TearleIf your talking the new msa std production class you can't have braided brake hoses only different pad material read the regs they are in the msa blue book, to be honest l run std pads which are OK after all you are on the most courses for a max of 2 mins with very little hard braking.

Hello, I'm strongly thinking of joining this club as a competitor next year but as a complete novice having never done any msa events before I'm after some advice. First of all the car I would be using is my clio 197 as pictured, I have heard in the past about graphics advertising alcohol and cigarettes being a big no, as you can see I have a small john player special logo would this be allowed? Secondly I'm planning on fitting a bucket seat but retaining the original 3 point seat belt, would the rules allow this? The seat is fia approved and in date but I'm unsure about the seatbelt being allowed with the bucket seat. I'm not sure if it makes any difference but I'd be aiming to compete in the road going class. Thanks ... See moreSee less

Glenn StocktonSeat belt will be fine,seat does not need to be in date for Spints. I do not see a problem with a small logo.But if anyone moans you can cover it with a bit of tape.

Hamish GibsonWorth adding a warm welcome, everyone in the club is helpful and friendly 😀 I thought it would be daunting when I started last year but there's loads of help and support in NSCC. It's the main reason I'm hopefully coming back next year 😁

Hamish GibsonTo get a good heads up on the regs, last year's regs are on this page : www.nottinghamsportscarclub.co.uk/competitors.php Click on '2017 Regulations' on the left-hand side. They MIGHT change for next season, who knows, but it'll give you a ballpark to aim for in terms of which class to enter and therefore what you can do within those class regs.

Bruce WiddowsonHello James, thank you for looking at our club - we have a tradition of providing comradeship for enthusiasts, including road going car competitors over many years (established in 1948). Regards Bruce (a life member).

James LovellThanks for the welcomes, after a quick look I'd be in class 1b which fits nicely as I've got plenty of tyres that suit the class. Looking forward to joining (y)

Stephen MorrisonWelcome James. Great car! Look forward to seeing it (and you) next season. You can sometimes get good deals on racewear at the NEC Autosport show, but ticket and parking cost can sometimes outweigh the discounts. 2018 calendar should be available next month for you to start thinking about which events to aim for. As others have said, any questions just ask.

Who is doing the 2018 NSCC championship then? I'll be entering 1b with my 182.

Just need to sort out a set of wheels and tyres and we should be set!

Hamish GibsonWell I'm certainly hoping to get around to it next year. Sat this year out for some reason, and really missed it. Plans afoot for an assault on 1C again in a different (not too different) car 😉🤔 Will have Clare and Scott on Catering and Media Services again 😂

Dan MorrisStephen Miles - out of curiosity - why the 0.95 against 4WD?

Hamish Gibson4WD has an advantage over 2WD.

Dan MorrisThere's your answer Robert Marwood ;)

Robert Marwoodi'd agree there's an advantage but not 0.95 worth. 3 secs over a 60sec lap is an eternity. 4wd adds weight and has greater drive train losses than 2wd which partly offsets some of the advantage also. I can't see how two cars with the same whp and weight would be 3secs apart with just 4wd vs 2wd the difference.

Hamish GibsonWe have to work harder, granted, but wait until a wet event... 😉 Seriously though, I've looked at the rules for a lot of championships I might be eligible for and the NSCC method of scoring is by far the most fair, in my very humble opinion. You just have to look at the end of season leader board to see how the different classes all compete on a very even basis for the overall championship title. Sheer power and money doesn't take the title necessarily.

Stephen MorrisonAlways good to hear opinions/feedback about scoring and makes my job as scorer feel a lot more worthwhile with more entries - so crack on upping the numbers 😎

Hamish GibsonHave a go, Gary 😀 Sign up for membership and enter as a championship competitor and see which events you can make. I only did 5 events last year but loved every single one of them. Carpe diem.

The scores have now been audited and the challenge period os over so I can confirm that Nick Mugglestone is the On-Track NSCC 2017 Speed Champion - Congratulations Nick.
There were a couple of minor errors that did not affect any positions. Final versions of the Championship, Harry Driver, Des Richardson and List of all awards have been emailed to members and uploaded to the NSCC website.
Note: Awards Dinner is 18th November - deadline for reservations 6th November
