Mainly positive reactions so far, but some negatives that need explanation.
Regarding organisation, a lot of midnight oil was burnt in the week leading up to the race, MSA small print was interpreted and re-interpreted, and at one point, this time last week, the whole thing was close to being called off. James then got an agreed timing plan that would give a 100 minute race, that was then revised (not by the EERC) on Friday evening to the format that actually happened.
Shambles - probably yes, but this was a first in UK motorsport, and the EERC was quite clear in it's requirements and objectives, but was dependant upon (and this is not a critiscm, just an observation) the cautious and conservative views of the organising bodies. The format was a radical departure from the norm, and naturally handled with some trepidation.
True, the suggested number of entrants didn't materialise, and this is sadly typical of Britcar fields, but on reflection, 23 was probably about right, given the conditions, and performance/experience levels. But what an entry it was ! The usual suspects were joined by very welcome day-trippers from British GT and VW Cup.
It seems that all involved, and most observing, endorse the format, and all support is appreciated to develop and improve for the future.
