I think you can race up there 3 times before you have to join the BRCA for insurance purposes. That costs £16.

As Ian rightly said, you can race 3 times before you have to become a member of the BRCA, this is for insurance purposes. I'm not sure if your RCCAOI membership would cover you or not? I think the last time we all raced at Ballymena it cost £10 each. Please see the link below for BRCA membership details....

Hi All,

Maybe the powers that be will correct me, but according to the BRCA handbook, "overseas" drivers are covered by the insurance as long as they are members of thier national association.

And, by "Overseas" I believe that they mean anyone from outside the BRCA's juristdiction.

So competitors from ROI would be covered to race. I don't think that they are limited to 3 events. However, just be aware that if you plan on scoring points at the BRCA regionals, you will have to be a BRCA member.

I think its only fair also that if you go to race in the series at NIMCC, that you at least join the club.

Will

I recently spoke with Alan Scroggie of the NIMCC(Ballymena) about membership and fees etc.. This is what he had to say....

"From the AGM we decided to raise fees to keep inline with aghalee for non members to £15 although the membership not including brca is £17 for adults and £7 for juniors (30 and 20 including brca).

Race fees for members is £10 per class and members get championship points with non-members only getting points for the first 3 races they attend until joining."

Members from the south who are a member of the RCCAOI need not apply for BRCA membership. It would however be worth joining the Ballymena club if you plan on competing in this series. There is more track work planned for this month before the opening round. I'm not expecting anyone from the South to travel up to help but perhaps some of the drivers from up here in the North could lend a hand. I will post the dates for track work on here when I get them.

From Northern Ireland section, change to the plans for this Saturday in ballymena:

"Due to some issues with last weeks workparty we have to finish off some of the work this weekend and so the first round of the summer series has been changed to a work party in the morning with open practice or racing in the afternoon depending on numbers and what people want to do...."

Big thanks to Derek McCloskey, Mick Bolger and Mark Penney for making the effort to attend the meeting yesterday. I think we all agree it was a very worthwhile excersie, we were blessed with some nice weather too with only one small shower all day. Hope to see a few more make the trip for the National round on the 9th of June.
