Philip and Jenny Wood: Speed Championships
Co-ordinators, proposed: Grenville Williamson, seconded: Katie Hunt
Matthew Fowle: Rally 2004 Road Rally Championship Co-ordinator, proposed for the Executive by : John Upham, and seconded by: David Walton and further proposed for above post by Guildford Motor Club and seconded by Hart Motor Club.
These nominations are the only ones received to date. Positions to be ratified at the February AGM.
This obviously has a dramatic effect on the following:
SOUTHERN CAR CLUB: Who use the
venue as 8 stages of the Rallye Sunsseker and once
a year for a multi-use event.
BOURNEMOUTH CAR CLUB - Who use the venue for 2 multi-use events per year.
FOREST EDGE KART CLUB - Who use the venue on a monthly basis for MSA kart meetings
ICM MOTORSPORT - Who hire the venue for Test Days and Corporate Driver Days.
It must be stressed that this decision
has no bearing on any future motor sport use
of any other QinetiQ facility, especially Longcross.
MSA / QinetiQ Liaison Officer
Following yesterday's Carfax Stages at Longcross, Chris Powis has emerged as the Overall Winner of the Rally 2002 Tarmac Rally Championship.
Driving his venerable Nova, the Herefordshire-based publican held off a determined challenge from Bognor's Paul King to win the series by just 3 points. After dropping scores and as a direct result of a 3 level tie-breaker, Chris' partner in crime Tom Powis also claimed the Co-Drivers title in a battle which saw him tie on overall total points with Paul Hollingham.
A full set of provisional results will
be posted as soon as the 7 day marshalling claim period elapses.
This is due in the main to the local area being designated under MAFFguidelines as an IA (Infected Area) as there is an outbreak of Foot & Mouth within 12 miles of the airfield. Additionally, we would not wish to be the first people back on the airfield after such an extended period of restriction and feel it appropriate to allow the local population access for a while. Obviously another important aspect is the continued habitation of the airfield by many thousands of sheep!
I have analysed the date to the best of my ability (bearing in mind the fluid nature of the calendar at present) and have concluded that this weekend is the one of least resistance and that there are no direct clashes championship-wise. It is also the most suitable from Dalton Barracks point-of-view.
I would urge everyone to check the date
and advise me if the change means difficulty in them continuing in their
nominated role on the event or of any other
potential difficulties. Also, those officials who have responsibility for booking
various people and services are asked to 'make that call' as soon as possible and confirm acceptance of the change.
Finally for those applicable, the next meeting of the Organising Team will still be on Thursday 26th April at 8.30pm at the Sun, Windlesham. Please RSVP if you will NOT be in attendance.

28th DECEMBER 2000
The hugely successful Beginning In Motorsport Weekend, organised by The Association of Central Southern Motor Clubs, has been forced to move dates from February to 18th / 19th August. The main reason given for the change is ‘a search for better weather’.
Chairman Barry Guess added ‘Last year we got away with 2 unusually sunny days and it certainly paid dividends. However, what with all the recent rain and snow and with the emphasis of the weekend changing to encourage a greater public awareness of the existence of local clubs and events, it was felt that in August we would stand a better chance of a larger attendance’.
Last years event attracted over 3,000 spectators and encouraged over 150 new motor club members and 30 new competition licence holders to take the plunge. The 2001 event will again feature Club and Trade stands, competition car displays together with the Live Action Arena giving demonstrations of all forms of motor sport including Sprint, Race and Rally.
Further information is available from
the ACSMC website on
or from Barry Guess on 01252 727390.
Reasons for this change will be explained
at the next ACSMC Executive / Council
Meeting in January.
Barry Guess, Chairman.
After much debate, we have taken the
decision to cancel this year's presentation of the Cross Border Rally.
This difficult decision was made in
the light of a number of organisational obstacles.
We feel that, in circumventing these
difficulties, we would have compromised
the quality of the event. Rather than presenting a sub-standard event, to
the disservice of competitors, marshals and everyone else involved, we thus
felt compelled to cancel.
Please accept our apologies for any
disappointment this may have caused and
be assured that we will make every effort to return in 2001 with Hampshire's
premier (allegedly - ed) road rally.
