Entering the St Cross Electronics Mono Championship

Send in your completed Championship Registration and Race Entry Forms by post, fax or email. Guest ChampionshipRegistration is available. You can enter more than one race on a single Entry Form by ticking the relevant boxes. You must provide means of payment with the Entry Form for all races entered; in the form of one or more cheques, or valid debit/credit card details. Entries will not be accepted without valid means of payment. Entries will be acknowledged by email, unless you request postal communications.

Championship race entries are usually accepted on a first come–first served basis. Where an event is oversubscribed, priority will be given to Championship point scorers, in order of points scored, provided their entry is received at least two weeks prior to the event.

Payments for each Championship event are processed immediately after the Closing deadline, which is 3 days prior to the event. Refunds will be made for entries withdrawn (notified by email/post) before the Closing deadline. No refunds or credits will be given for entries withdrawn after this deadline. If you realise in advance that you have a problem and may need to withdraw, please contact us and we will do everything we can to help.

There are two different Championship event formats this year

• Twin headers take place over two days with each full entry having two qualifications and two races
• Double headers take place on one day with each full entry having one qualification and two races.

Qualification and races are generally scheduled at 15 minutes duration, though watch the regulations in the event that this changes and be sure to fuel adequately.

At all Championship events except Silverstone GP the entry will be divided by classes into two grids, which have separate qualifications and races. Hence at a normal Twin header event the Club will have a total of 4 qualification sessions and 4 races over the weekend.

Entering only one qual/race in a weekend? Sharing a car? One driver with two cars?

You can use the Entry Form to enter and compete on only one day of a twin header event ie compete in one qualification and one race, by ticking the relevant box. It’s also possible for two drivers to share a car over a twin header event, each driver competing on one of the days. If you wish to share a car in this way, or to enter only one race in a double header event (ie Castle Combe, Oulton, Silverstone GP), then please contact us to arrange this.

If you plan to enter two cars with one driver, with a car in each of the two Monoposto grids, then please let us know well in advance, as we can then try to manage race day schedule to accommodate this.

Discount for Full Championship Entry

This year for the first time the Club is offering a discount to drivers who enter and pay in full for all Championship races before 31st March 2014. The discount is 7% of the total entry fee cost (ie worth £175) - approximately equivalent to the cost of a single race. We hope this is a reward for loyal competitors, and a realistic encouragement to commit to a full season.

For overall cost reasons the Club needs to limit the total number of discounted Full Championship Entries, so these will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you wish to take advantage of this offer please contact us by phone or email in the first instance to ensure its availability.

If you take up the discount offer, but subsequently withdraw from one or more races prior to their Closing date you will be eligible for a refund in the normal way. However the £175 discount will be deducted from the first refund that you receive, which will effectively return you to a non-discounted entry status.

Spa Summer Classic (Non-Championship)

The Spa Summer Classic will take place again this year on 27-29 June. The format and schedule will be similar to previous years. Qualifying and race durations are each 25 minutes, so total scheduled track time per entry is 100 minutes. Qualifying is on Friday 27th June (two sessions), Race 1 on Saturday, and Race 2 on Sunday.

Competitors can secure an entry with a £250 deposit. The balance must be paid by 27 May 2014. This highlight event is filling fast so competitors do need to get their entry in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Payment is processed on acceptance of entries. Refunds for withdrawals are made provided that we are able to substitute another entry for yours. (This is usually possible).
