Fingers crossed!

http://www.totb.co.uk/compete/TOTB8Entryform.pdf

Or via http://www.totb.co.uk/compete/apply-now.asp if that doesn't work.

Are you sending direct or to me? I'll PM my address if you don't mind sending it my way so I can deliver them all together.

Anyone else waiting on anything? Really need to get the team together asap and we have gaps to fill. I need another 5 cars, ideally more so we have reserves, don't be shy please.

The deadline for entries is only a week or so away and we don't even have half a team yet... anyone else interested?

Same restrictions as last year unfortunately :(

I don't have the regs to hand right now though but that sounds about right. Likely to be an issue?

Is this going to be the first year we can't manage 10?!

We''ve had drop-outs in previous years and ended up with under 10 but this could possibly be the first time we don't even get that many to start with.

I'm having to chase more than any other year and very few people seem to be coming to me wanting to take part, given how long it's been running and how much interest it always generates I would have expected to be turning people away this year rather than worrying about making a full team up :(

I'll keep pushing though, will post up the entries I have so far later in the week and see who else gets back to me.

Seems to be a lot of projects on the go and not finished this year by the looks of things! (Me included. :( ).

Still should be a good show. :thumleft:

There are supposed to be less cars this time to keep the queues down, if all the teams are like us then there might only be 50 :)

Last bump for entries, I've sent PMs to those who expressed an interest earlier on but the response has been disappointing so far.

Final date for entries is the 3rd of July, that's when they need to be with TOTB, not when you can post them or express an interest!

103db if you are in the 10's

106db if you are in the 9's

112 static won't get you in this year at all, VERY strict testing planned :(

If you can make it quieter you need to try and do so, if you can't now might be the time to pull out :(

Just found this on gt4oc...


Chris Mann TOTB said...

Noise issues
As per last year the situation at Elvington doesn’t get any easier, and this is a reminder to team reps that noise testing will be strictly monitored as a static test by Elvington airfields own representative. 103db is the general noise limit for the majority of cars and 106db for proven sub10s cars which will again have to be notified in advance to us once your teams are selected. Please note that this issue is being monitored by the airfield owners, and it will be noted on the noise test sticker if bungs were used. Any cars that appear much noisier during the day may be subject to a re-test and if found to be running without the same bung in place may be disqualified if they cannot pass the re-test. Bruntingthorpe has recently lost their noise case and cannot run public trackdays anymore apparently so please ask all competitors to abide by the site rules.
Many of the proven sub10s 1/4m cars can and did run at 103db anyway so it’s not a case that the cars have to be noisy to be fast and the airfield owners know this is the case from testing this year at Subaru sprints.
