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.

Loving the new section guys!!! When I put my f15s on the track they spontaniously conbusted ! Amazing

I'm not going to say it was a great weekends racing because than would be lying..... But Well done to Shaun Mitchell yet again! Im sure one day your reign of terror will come to an end

Well done to Lewis on winning his round and pipping me by 1 point to 4th place in the overall championship and Lewis Anthony for the Junior championship!

See you all next year, will definitely be doing every round next year as im glad i started doing the championship

Oh and thanks to Julian for doing the driving most of the year it would be a pleasure if it wasn't for your ghastly smells that were happening today and well every round really...

Nic and Sam beat me at the final round costing me 2 points and 4th in the championship , Even though Sam and Nic missed rounds , I hope the rules are changed next year to help to combat against this happening
The rules are that you count 5 from 6 , so the ones who do 4 or less are never really going to be in it , so what you said Phil is pretty irrelevant because we are allowed to drop a round .

It's not these two that are the problem , I know Sam I think was ill at one of the rounds and nick has supported the series for years , it's like it is in many championships those who go to just one or two of the rounds but still take valuable points away from those that do 5 or 6 rounds .... I know I have only been doing it this year but it's just a querry on improvement .

Obviously the best thing to do would be to at the end of the year have those people who do 4 or less taken out of the overall standings and and promote the points to those that were beaten by these people that did 5 or more rounds .

But obviously if this cannot be done by pc someone cannot be expected to work it all out in which case we may have to just deal with it , what about paying for 5 rounds at the beginning of the season ? Therefore you won't just get the people coming to 3 rounds ? After all it's only another tenner surely people know if they plan on doing most of the rounds ?

I now prepare to be shot down in flames

Well in that table Mark Probert would overtake Richard Welch , and im sure that if certain positions were a little closer then there would have been differences it just so happens this year it didnt make a lot of difference to final table , if you look at the pinewood round for example andrew m'bartle got 30 points therefore loosing 8 to those who at the end of the table were never in the running . (yes i know this round didn't count but it does show you how it can make a difference. I dont think im the only one to have spoken about this before .

I know its not a huge amount but whatever , its not the end of the world
, heres to another season in the SIC and cant wait for the rules to be released

Roll on GTRR!!!!!

Problem is the problem only seems to make a significant difference at two clubs (pinewood probably because its the first round and north staffs) so those who are quick at them clubs are always going to be at an advantage.... but as has been said you cant be fair to everyone can we...

Well that guy whoever it was took less than an hour to work it out... Fair play to him

This year if you look there were still (probably because its the first round) more people that went to pinewood and didnt do other rounds..

Thats why GTR being the first track is the best as its the club where really theres only one home driver everyone else is on a relatively level playing field

Obviously by the fact that it is after phil did all the sums and it finished out pretty much the same it must be reliable, i only raised it first as an observation , i wasn't particularly slating the rules and the way things are set up . Obviously its been run like this for some time so must be working .
