Default What track what class ?

There is a possiblity that Coventry may run 2 different tracks for the F345 finals this year. One day on Astro, other on the Grass. This is for a few reasons.

1, Saves the grass track from getting to rutted and worn for the following day.
2, Less advantage over peole only doing the one day.
3, There were quite a few non local drivers last year that showed a lot of interest on running on the Astro track.

So, with this in mind, what would you F345 drivers prefer to race on, 2wd on Astro and 4wd on grass or vica versa...... Over to you ......

i'd go 2wd astro and 4wd grass. I liked the look of the astro track the other year, and the grass on the Sunday was pretty bare.

2WD on grass
4wd on astro

Just a thought but maybe an idea to start a poll on this to get a clear vote.

Why not just run both days on the astro track? Surely that makes more sense? And just change the layout overnight?

Because it gives people more variety on track surface and caters for drivers that like astro and others that like grass. Also it takes any track and surface knowledge away from people who did the Saturday.

Surely that makes more sense

entry forms are on line on the new BRCA web site...and yes you have to qualify through your regionals but i believe most entrants get in as not all qualifiers take up their allocation
