Hi Malc,

I would appreciate an entry to "my favourite event of the year" !!.

See you soon at the 1.5 / 3 litre F1 event.

I have actually started building one of the two cars for that !!.

Eddie Grice and Ralph Parker would like entries as well, I will be paying their entry fees for them tomorrow.

Car #1 is built (I inherited a D-type Auto-Union from the late Mike Perry's estate) before I start work on Car #2 as a backup does the streamliner ban include the open wheel streamliners such as the Maserati 250F Streamliner? I would be obeying the Lancia D50 rule and not putting chassis under sidetanks, in fact at the moment it would be just a body graft onto a cut-down Cartrix chassis.

QUOTE No resin, GRP wood or plastic, lexon or vac forms. Hard Bodies only.????????

Well spotted Steve, this should read Resin, GRP, wood or plastic hard bodies only - No lexan or vac formed bodies.

Alexis - Ortman tyres are permitted as usual - you just can't use sponge or other pure silicon types.

Coop - it does mean never - we'd like to encourage entrants who have never been to a Wolves Classic event before to give it a try. I'd imagine the Maser is ok providing the chassis is not full width (as with the Lancia Ferrari rule) as it is an open wheeler - it is the fully enveloping bodies like the Merc streamliner that is not allowed.

Hi Mal.
Yes please. I think you may already have me on the list...but one should not take these things for granted!
Just to confirm Phil's opinion. The Maserati is OK. Use a chassis that could fit under a 'standard' 250F. It looks like it may be a Dave Jones body, If so this model has already run at Early Birds...2009 I think!
regards Bill.
