Chief Moderator: Paul "Badblood" Whitfield
After several hectic seasons we are cooling things down a little and limiting ourselves to four championships over two race nights. The season will be the conventional length with ten rounds in each championship. Drivers will drop two rounds so that only the best eight results count.
2017 is the fiftieth anniversary of the 1967 season so it is fitting that we run a 1967 F1 championship over the same tracks that were used fifty years ago. The familiar token system will be used to ensure the drivers have a choice of chassis whilst maintaining parity between the drivers over the course of the season.
Drivers of all abilities who enjoy the 66mod can enter the Historic Trophy division. The top drivers in the championship will be restricted to the slower chassis. This season drivers will be seeded and allocated a chassis group for the first race, this should prevent the first round being a virtual spec race. The races will be run under PRO damage. Races will be run for either the 2 litre cars or the 3 litre cars, there will be no mixing of 2 litre and 3 litre cars in the same race.
We will run a championship for the very popular 65 F1 cars. No handicapping system will be enforced, rather drivers will be allocated a chassis by the moderators which they will be expected to use for the duration of the season. The moderators may decide to adjust the chassis allocation at any point during the season.
There will also be a "special"s championship with a range of cars and formats. This division will suite the versatile driver who enjoys a mixture of open and closed wheel racing.
As ever, drivers are being asked to read the rules, dates and track selection for each division and enter the divisions, they prefer. The objective here is to ensure the drivers are happy with the rules, dates and track selection of their chosen division(s) before committing to the season. The moderators reserve the right to adjust the driver allocation as necessary should there be sufficient entries to justify more than one grid.
Drivers will not be restricted to entering a single division. Drivers can enter as many divisions as they like.
