a Club Championship
By Graeme Adams
It is said that everything needs
a plan. Well if thatís the case - here is a quick overview of how to win
Ďyourí class in the club championship or indeed the club championship
By inspecting the points gained
by the winners in the last few years, you will have a fair idea of the number of
points that will be needed to gain success in any given year.
A quick overview of the events
tells us there is a Concourse, 3 speed (power) events, 5 Motorkhanas including a
Khanacross and DECA, 2 Regularities, 2 OSTís an Economy run and a Mini Monti.
Remember that only your best 12 results count.
There is no advantage here for
the red-hot racecar that would expect to clean up in the speed events and do
well in the Regularities, only to be found out in the Motorkhanas, OSTís and
It has been proved again in í99
that a Club MGB can win; however a good Midget may be a better bet. How
competitive then is an MGF? We understand that an F can pick up points in the
speed events but then so can quick Bís and modified midgets.
Another question that you have to
answer is what tyres? With the one tyre rule it means that you have to stay with
the same tyre type. Any change in size or Ďgripí will result in your points
being counted as if you were in another car.
Now its time to do your points
Where are your points going
to come from?
What areas do you have to
How are you going to maximise
your regularity points?
As an aside, many of the past
winners have spent a good deal of time and effort in "learning the
craft" over a number of years.
Good planning and good luck.
