MSA Blue Book

Monoposto should be honoured that the MSA has chosen a picture of Britain's largest modern single seater series to illustrate the Car Racing section of the 2015 Blue Book (page 269, downloadable from here).

Many thanks to both Alister Poulter and Ray Rowan for bringing this to our attention.

Of course, it's always time well spent reading the Blue Book - especially flag signals and safety requirements

 

Competition Time

1800 class stalwart Marcus Sheard has sent us this picture of his new car. Apparently, apart from the wheels it's all there!

Post your replies on the forum:

1) Can you spot what the car is?

2) Provide a caption.

Marcus suggests a caption of "1. Locate and cement pilot to seat."

Petition on Noise

Thanks to Tim and Rosemary Cameron for spotting the following.

https://submissions.epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/72458 represents an e-petition. The narrative with it is shown below.

"There are innumerable cases of people knowingly moving within close proximity of motorsport venues, only to try to have their planning permission revoked or have them closed completely when they take exception to the noise.

It is extremely detrimental to the UK's motorsport heritage, when all the motorsport venues start disappearing. Motorsport and the associated mechanical/engineering business is a key British export and second to none in the world of motorsports.

As such, anyone who wishes to buy or rent a property within a determined distance of a motorsport venue should have to read and sign legislature that waives their right to complain about the noise from the nearby venue. If they do not wish to be bothered by something that was a fixture of the community long before they arrived, they should not move there in the first place."

I believe the aviation community suffer from the same issue ("We never noticed the runway of the international airport when we bought the house") so please support a worthy cause.
