Good news! The DNRT decided that we have our own race together with the formula cars and the Westfield cup will have their own races also. This means less cars on track and less chance on accidents due to the speed differences.
With around 15-20 cars on track there's loads of place at the 4300 m track.
Normaly we try to get the garages wich will cost around 30-50 euro depending on the anount of cars per garage. I think we could have the clubmans cars together in a double garage.
So many happy memories of Clubmans at Zandvoort (some un-repeatable!), really sorry that I can't join you all.
The Mallock just booked their van and trailer via Harwich on Stena for only £255. Use the booking offer code B310. I can stiull accept late entries. Download the notes and entry form at this Clubmans web site on the "Current Season" page

19h00 Competitors on the 22h00 Stena ferry from Hook fo Holland to Harwich (latest boarding 21h00) should leave Zandvoort to leave plenty of time (1h15 in normal traffic but Sunday night may be congested in parts).
That's about 1 hour 45 minutes on track.
I'll ask Ria to organise a briefing in English for the Clubmans racers.
For those who have a small fuelcell; 12 laps on Zandvoort is +/- 18 min. This is based on a lap of 1.50
To give an idea:
My fastest lap in Proto mk27 1.45 mk20 (200bhp)1.47 mk20 B sport (2003) 1.53
Diff choice? Use same diff as Snetterton 300
DNRT has a code 60 rule, when the code 60 flag i shown all cars have to drive max 60 km/h (38 mls) the whole track and no overtaking until the green flag is shown. This is done to keep the number of red flags down and the safety for the marshalls to the max. Be aware that racecontrol is very keen on this so check your revs/gear on this.
