4/10/17 SKEGNESS UNLIMITED BANGER TEAM
2018 sees Skegness Raceway hosting a
throwback to Yesteryear with an Unlimited Banger team
Reunion on Sunday 17th June. We have thought about running a
similar meeting for the last couple of years but the
emphasis was very much on one particular team reuniting and,
for one reason or another, hasn’t quite materialised. For
2018 the meeting will definitely go ahead with Promoter Rob
Speak making it an ‘Open House’ for any of the teams from
years gone by to come out to play along with those from
Back in the day, many of the top teams from around the
country used to pay regular visits to Skegness, quite often
to take part in team events that were often staged. 10-20
years ago, household team names in the banger racing world
such as Steam Team, Damage inc, Team Black, Predators, Essex
Barn, Blooz Boys, Flying Squad, Condoms, Stinkbridge,
Suicide Squad and the Bears were all found racing at Skeggy.
Many of those just mentioned, or at least some members of
those teams are still active today, some more than others we
grant you. Our aim is to try and encourage as many of these
types of teams along as we can and also welcome along anyone
of the ‘current crop’ of drivers for a get together that
would provide superb action, guaranteed.
keeping with those good old days we aim to recreate, the
cars will be of the PRE 85 Spec, with the likes of
Granada’s, Jags, and Volvos etc. These were very much the
mainstay of the unlimited scene in that era. Already some PR
work has taken place by Rob Speak and members of his staff,
who have been in contact with drivers from some of the teams
mentioned above and those spoken to have given the car spec
their approval and said “We Will Be There”. It will be teams
of 4 drivers and details on Engine Specs and the substantial
prize fund (aimed at both racers and crashers) will be

4/10/17 BriSCA F1
2017 has seen a considerable amount of
change within BriSCA Formula 1 which was always inevitable
in particular with track closures and other issues that
arise during the normal course of a season. 2017 has in some
ways created a 'perfect storm' after quite a buoyant and
lengthy period of stability. We now need to get a grip
TOGETHER to ensure we become stronger and healthier in 2018.
We also need to 'move' the agenda particularly social media
wise into positive territory and as far as 2018 and onwards
are concerned, we are all only interested in moving the
sport forwards. That should start now, wipe the slate clean.
After a difficult few weeks, Deane Wood and myself have
jointly agreed to participate in a forum with 3 nominated
'fans' - the medium as has yet to be determined, perhaps one
of the 'online' podcast broadcasts may well be an option. We
may also include and invite the BSCDA Chairman who can
answer driver related questions. Let's get things in the
open in a positive manner.
We are prepared for a 60 -90 minute maximum 'open and
constructive debate' to answer as honestly as possible many
of the questions fans and drivers may or always wanted to
ask and, where possible every effort will be made for honest
answers and more importantly share 'ideas' openly which may
well have merit to incorporate in a master plan, or indeed
answer why an individual idea may well be impractical.
This currently is an 'embryonic' idea which needs more meat
on the bone, I would be suggesting Stoxnet may nominate 3
sensible people to represent fans and collate from others
questions and more importantly suggestions.
The timing of this would possible be end of October to
undertake it properly and Deane is also out of the country
for a period next month, but it doesn't want rushing.
We are honest in our intent because we all recognise the
future of BriSCA F1 is important and more than ever we need
drivers,promoters and fans equally and to be engaged and to
assist in ideas into 'Project 2018' putting the 'smile' back
into BriSCA F1. Social media has hurt the sport this year in
many ways, some understandable disappointment, some
frustration, and much passion but far too much unfounded
We will not be able to agree on anything however we want to
end 2017 on a positive note with a 'fresh' view on 2018 and
beyond. The draft 2017 fixtures have been announced, as is
usual, the final and confirmed list comes in December and
with ideas already taken on board, some of these may well
reflect in the final version in terms of ideas.
We have all suffered a drip,drip of depression which has
engulfed us this year and overshadowed actually the core
values which remain strong. This is a genuine initiative for
us all to embrace and draw a line and move on - and dispel
the many rumours circulating.
Let's see where this runs,
Over to you

6/4/17: FUEL NON RETURN VALVES
Fuel Non return valves were included
as an ORCi requirement in Oval Race formulae some time ago.
In 2016 there was a high profile case
involving a Non return valve not being fitted in a
particular formula that was dealt with somewhat leniently at
the time given some more general issues with regards their
fitting and scrutineering with the anticipation that this
would be an example to raise the awareness to all drivers
that a fully operational/working Non
return valve MUST be fitted.
In recent weeks various
investigations have revealed that drivers continue to
abuse the rule from taking cars to scrutineering and
then removing them or fitted and tampered with.
From the 1st May 2017 drivers are
now warned that contravention of this rule WILL result
in an automatic mandatory ban under the technical rules/
penalties of 6 months. This applies to any driver not
having a fully working non return valve fitted and/or it
being tampered with in any way.
Issued ORCi 6h April 2017
