Gaz, you say the event is not timed. I realise not everyone will want to be flat out on the type of circuit this is but without a general time, even nearest second, there will be no indication of who has a fast Mini. Also, after a few goes, hopefully lap times would improve. Without timing, how would you know?

If we were to time it, just a stop watch, would we be breaking any rules?

There are a few problems with timing it, firstly we would need more people and radios etc to actually time it. Also this makes it a competitive Motorsport event which means there are more safety rules such as compulsory roll cages, proper fire retardant overalls, fire extinguisher systems etc etc which a lot of our cars do not have. Also we would then need our own liability insurance, a crewed ambulance on site, safety marshals etc etc.
There is also the element of people pushing too hard to try and get a good time which increases the risk of an accident and we can all get a bit carried away in the heat of the moment.

Saying all this there is nothing to stop you bringing your own stopwatch and timing yourself as long as it's kept quiet until after the event. Or you could video your runs then time it afterwards.
There is also the option of running 2 cars together (with a small gap) if you feel brave enough and trust the other driver so you can see how they compare.

Also a small reminded for all those who haven't paid yet, if I have not received payment by the end of February those places will no longer be reserved and I will open it up to anyone on a first come first served basis.
If you are on the list and haven't paid and still want to come but need more time to pay then please let me know via pm.
