Just a quick one, has clubmans ever done a rolling start? Is there some regulation stopping us from doing so?
The only thing for me that would stop rolling starts is common sense.
As an 'expert' of well in excess of 60 rolling starts, I can assure you we would wipe out far too many of an already depleted number of participating cars.
Leave well alone.
We can't afford it!
For historical accuracy - we did a rolling start when we raced at Spa all those years ago. I remember that Clive (Olive) Woodward forgot to keep up with the row in front ....well it's such a long lap.....It was like starting the race on lap 2!!!!
...at present the Haggis/Mallock Memorial Trophy Races at DP on October 1 are very likely to be a rolling start due to the format of the event. In theory at least it should not bebeyond the wit of our drivers to (a) maintain / re-establish grid formation and proximity throughout the greenflag lap and (b) avoid trashing each other at Redgate.. With 32 cars on the grid and no doubt some A Class cars at the sharp end, we ought at least to be saved any concerns about flying star wheels and broken drive shafts for 25 [or thereabouts] cars to have to avoid..
