General information for those planning to attend the final round of this year's championship.
The Premier Inn, North Wolverhampton, adjacent to Jct 2 of the M54 is the most convenient hotel, both for the club and the meal.Ease of access makes it attractive although they rarely have the cheap rooms offered by other Premier Inns.
Book on line or phone direct 0871 527 9184 (10p/min)
There is a B/B close to the club and closer to the meal. I have used it for visitors, Wheaton House Tel no. 01902 428841.It is on the main A449 and subject to noise from passing traffic,through the night.Its cheap around £32 B&B.
Alternatively the club lounge is available for the night,could sleep 6.
Have provisionally booked Wing Wah Chinese restaurant for the Sat.night. 7.30. £14 p/p. They have increased the range of food to include Indian.Visit their website for more details,
Can not quarentee there will be no birhtday parties being celebrated.
Wing Wah is only a 1/2 mile from the hotel,on the A449 towards Wolverhampton.

Set up Tips

Angle winder is the most popular option ATM, although I've found that sidewinder can work just as well. As for suspension, we tend not to use it although it may help when you drive off the cliff at the end of the straight.
Deep guides can be used.

Slot it P6's & P4's work best.

Angle winders
- Both fat 6's will work well in an audi, not that you have a choice.
- Closed can & open can boxers.
- 25k(yellow can) scaleauto's.
- 29k slot it works well for sidewinder.

Is recommended to lower the odds of lift off.

I will also get onto malc about those pictures Tuesday night.

Looking forward to seeing you all there

Yet another great weekends racing, massive congratulations to Shaun on his hat-trick
also to Lewis Anthony for his first championship win

Its also great to see the championship come down to the very last race of the season, it makes things a lot more intersesting

QUOTE (Gash @ 23 Oct 2011, 21:59) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>And again being brutally honest the way the footages are measured needs bringing into line with the rest of the series as I'm not convinced on the accuracy or the fairness of the current system.

The way that the system works out the footages is actually very accurate, its done by turning your average lap time into a percentage of the track, we have questioned and tested this method many times in the past and each time it has never let us down. This method is also very good as it eliminates any advantage from the cars rolling when the power is cut (some cars may have a lot more roll or could be on a straight), this is because it measures how far you got round from your average lap time.

Hope to see most of you again next year
