Is a phrase i've picked up a lot over the last few years, and why don't so many clubs le peoplet run newer faster cars , this is stopping new interest in the sport, surely rules bloody rules can be adjusted to let all enjoy.
Um? Someone rattled your cage this morning, Mr Gunn? Whatever, I think I need a citation to back up the sweeping, 'this is stopping new interest in the sport' claim. It is? Really? Really? 🧐

Also one for how our hobby became a "sport".🤔

I would say this, not everyone is a speed-crazed moron wanting to run faster cars. Not everyone wants to fork out for new releases. I'm currently a bit frustrated that Revoslots aren't currently exciting enough punters at Oxford to make a class likely. Ditto, very sadly, Sideways. But when a club only just has enough members to make it viable you gotta go with the consensus.

Maybe, since you're motivated and don't have a club nearby, set one up, set the rules 'n' reg's and see how it goes? 🤷‍♂️

The so called fast boys normally managed to benddddddddddddd the rules in some form or another, others just started to give it up as regards a hobby , they could not afford to do it anymore .
Which is why I argue that box-standard, single make classes are easier to police and more attractive to newbies.

Liberties can be taken, of course, but the playing field starts off looking more even and the liberties are smaller.

...bet there still is the good the bad and the down right argumentive competitors in most if not all clubs.
Hmmm? Which would you say you were, then? Back in the day?? 🤔

And which would your contemporaries have said?😁

P.s. Oxford doesn't currently have any argumentative souls and we're one of the grid slots for @zero5 - top five last time I looked in that National Drivers' League thing that makes me giggle - a very competitive fella.

Yeah, still not really sure of your motives with this thread, Peter. Your real motives. If it's just venting then the Grumps thread might be better suited.

I mean, I'm left feeling like you're telling us clubbers the error of our ways for not accommodating... you, and your 908. Oxford would, by the way. 😁

If you've a club nearby-ish, you can't rock up to it and immediately take the hump because they don't, at first glance, see the world according to Gunn.

So their rules aren't to your taste? Inveigle yourself. Sound out others about changing this rule or that. See if anyone else is interested in introducing this brand or that. Run your car in free practice and show how well it goes.

Rome wasn't built in an evening.

Edit
Another thought, possibly calling a bluff; could you rent the local wood track on another night, publish and then run to rules you set? In a build it, and they will come style?

Oh. Didn't know I was stuck in my way. Thanks for letting me know. 🙄

Else, I might not have gone to Farnham recently to try their crackhead ways. No brakes! Crash 'n' burn? Don't go, Peter. Don't! You won't like it! It's... different.😁

Blimey, I might not have thought to give Revoslot a go or started playing with 1:24 either, so stuck am I.🤷‍♂️ I mean, Oxford don't race either so... I should quit the club, right?🤔

Peter, go to Molesey. It might be good for you to get out, socialise and have some banter again.🙏
