Anyone want to sponsor it
Two proposals to vote on either way (one or the other, or neither).
The aim of both of these is to allow more drivers a chance to get to superstar grade:
A minimum of two superstar drivers to be listed in each grading period.
Any driver holding a national title (IE World, European, British or National Points) to be graded as CBDG superstar for the duration of the title and will not count towards the monthly grading of superstars.
voted in – 3 Superstars each month
1) Meeting qualification to be on points instead of laps, this will then allow me to coincide a monthly Grading list to reflect the Points championship. – Voted in.
2) Points from final and consolation to be used in monthly grading to make the 2 races more meaningful – voted in.
4) 3 Superstar slots to be available per month, championship title.holders to automatically hold superstar and will be exempt from the grading list. E.g the start of this season is just Matt so there will be 2 free superstar spots availabe per month. To allow for more drivers to reach superstar and red. – Voted in alongside Matt’s proposal.
extra trophy/shield/ for long track / kiwi cup as we don’t have ethier to be handed back at the end of November approx. costs per shield are around £35.00 to £70.00 each club to fund both (if there no increase in hall fees and no unexpected cost over the year 2016 ) race fee increase will cover these with in 4/5 months – voted in
1.) New 3mm Scrutineering Plate as the old ones had it.- voted in – Rob to supply – thanks
as a reward for doing so well in the f1 world final josh smith 191 to be sponsored again for next year 2016 monies/tyres to be discussed at agm (if possible need advertisement on both cars and bigger than on his shale car for venues such as Coventry.birmingham,northampton, – Josh will be carrying the clubs name on his F1 tarmac & Shale + his Rebel, also Arron Hampstead also has the club name on his Rebel.
I know I’m new to this club. But I was surprised it was only £4.50 to race. I would have no issue with it being raised to £5. – Voted in as above.
Concessions voted in for over 65’s – £3 to race.
