Classes and notes

LMP classes for this year will be 13.5 and 17.5 Stock on Saturday, Sports and Open on Sunday.

The 13.5 Stock class will be run on a Formula basis. Qualifying heats will run as previously however Finals will be split into F1 and F2, F3 drivers will run as F2. Drivers will be assigned their Formulas based upon ratings at the start of the season, subject to scrutiny by the committee. Drivers with ratings near the break point will have the opportunity to choose their formula. Formulas will be announced before th start of the season.

Although it is expected that it will be mainly F3 drivers who choose to run 17.5 ,any driver may enter the 17.5 Stock class

The Open class will have no lower motor limit and can run open speedos as per the rules for the Worlds.This is to allow drivers to practise with equipment in readiness for Milton Keynes. If the Worlds rules change before the event, then the National rules will alter to reflect that.

Drivers may only enter for 1 class per day.
