As we're rapidly coming up to the last round for this season I wanted as we always do to reflect, have input on the good, bad, ugly from this year and input re 2016.

From my take on things, this year has been hit really hard by the weather, with virtually every round having at least one wet day and the MOPARS being a near on wash out which has impacted on track time, but hey this is England not Florida so not a lot we can do about it.

I have felt that as a whole most events this year have been a lot quieter than normal especially Gary's Picnic.

The balance of venues / timing / type of meets is I feel as good a balance as we can achieve based on the track dates available.

I'm awaiting the provisional calenders for shakey and the pod for 2016 an will then see what's available, although I'd envisage we'll aim to retain the normal balance of 8 rounds across the two tracks.

There has been lots of rumours re the future of Shakey BUT we're not going to get drawn into that, Shakey will be running a full calender for 2016 and we will continue to race there as normal.

Not sure how many times I've said this but it's YOUR forum use it or lose it and lose the series not rocket science.......

I thought this year was the best to date. Members seem more keen to interact with each other and we've had some cracking nights around base camp. In general I think the members have been a very friendly lot and help each other where they can. Oh and the racing, not too bad.

Have to agree,
This year for member interaction has been the best and has really helped me with my depression

Mark & I are still owed tonnes of Hobnobs !!!!

The only change i would make is making dragstalgia a non point event for the year
just ET & RT on the day, i know weve done that one to death


Apart from that, what with the attraction of many clubs now to racing im wondering if we could go back to timed slots for running as it was good seeing us all go down as a group a few years back, rather than queing for 4 plus hours


The OS Racing is now more Family than ever and im enjoying not racing and getting into trouble chatting lol ( head down stubs toes on ground) maybe WE not just mark need to work on that a bit more, We have base camp but maybe we need Base fire pit, for evenings (just a thought)

apart fropm that i think the balance is about there we cant controll the tracks condition or who attends but lets make the most of what weve got

Another crappy year for me with no car but saying that, i have enjoyed the social side of the series!
It is always good to catch up but as a supporter/spectator I have seen the frustrations of the endless queueing and the 'are we/aren't we running' scenarios.
Saying that, the allocated slots are a better idea and it would be nice to see those again although i understand the difficult logistics of achieving that.
All said, still enjoying it and looking forward to next season where hopefully I'll be running the car ;)

Interesting feedback already, so it seems we've got the balance of meets right.

Re time slots
I agree, however these usually happen at structured meets, Dragstalgia / Street Nationals / Flame and Thunder VW Action (previous years)

This year the only time time slot round was Dragstalgia, however there's nothing stopping you guys running together as a pack making your own timeslots so to speak (used to in the past)

Re Dragstalgia no points round
No as we've already discussed it must remain a points round with a B meet for those not eligible to run

Re pit fire
Major No No at the pod

Re 'fun meets'
Yep all for it just for you lads to organise

Re allocated pits
Can continue next year just needs members to muck in
