News from HKC
Welcome to 2014 and what promises to be a great year's racing at Rye House.

Many of you will remember Jason's email informing of committee elections and so we wanted to update you with the outcomes from that and also some changes which we hope will improve your racing experience at HKC.

There's a lot of information below which we hope you'll take the time to read and should you want any further information on any of the points please do drop us a line. Don't forget if you have yet to put in your membership form then you need to do this as soon as possible to the membership e-mail address.

Appointments:

You can contact the above with a single email address at hkc-committee@googlegroups.com

Timed Qualifying:
There was considerable debate on the introduction of it to the other classes. Arguments were put forward for it based on the nature of the Rye House track and standardising with European circuits, and conversely based on driver wishes. At the vote it was decided that the current system will remain, with only the Cadet classes in Timed Qualifying and 2 Heats. The position for other classes will be reviewed again for the 2015 season.

Track Maintenance:
Having taken feedback during the course of last year and from our own experiences there were a number of suggestions that were discussed. The ones that came up most frequently and which will be resolved were:

Trophies and Race Entries:
For 2014 we plan to maintain the flexibility of how you pay whether it be by card, cash or cheque and to make sure the race entries are published in time and so we are able to order the right trophies this year we will be enforcing the late entry fee policy.

Last year whilst only 20% of the race entries were handed in late, those who did this affected just about everyone else. They meant that race entry lists were published late and also had a pretty big impact on the number and size of the trophies for each class that were ordered.

To improve this for 2014 the entry cut off will still be one clear week before the race and now be supported by a charge of £30 for the first late entry and followed up by back of the grid starts for repeat offenders.

This means that you need to get your race entry in by midnight the Saturday 8 days before the race meeting, and if you've not included payment with the completed form please indicate how you will be paying.

2014 MSA Rule Changes:
Members are reminded of the 2014 Blue Book that is now in force, in particular updates to Q 14.4.1 on overtaking, defending and hindering other drivers and also Q 14.4.2 on track limits, white lines and kerbs. To help with these updates the CoC has agreed to clarify during the drivers' briefings.

2014 Racing and The London Cup:
This year's will see The London Cup return to its previous format of being a stand alone race. The timing of last year's London Cup proved successful in attracting large grids and so that will remain unchanged at the first Sunday in September and so as to blend the best of both worlds and ensure that all members can enjoy it without effecting their championship position this year:
