2017 championship standings up to Round 13 Golspie

 

Thanks to Ian Thompson’s efforts the scores already mailed and posted here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As noted , it was a “slightly moist” Golspie on the Sunday which introduced challenges with a few spins but thankfully no obvious damage and many thanks to Caithness Club and all marshalls and volunteers and a special thanks to the catering staff for great meal on Saturday night !

 

As well as Colin achieving FTD on Saturday and Louise the same on Sunday , the Calder Motorsport team were joined by Heather , the 2017 British Sprint Champion, assisting in the paddock.

 

Looking to the results the main standings are fairly solid as dropped scores are now in play and many contenders are dropping low scores, making significant improvements difficult. But plenty still to go for the following positions and see all at Boyndie for the last event of the Highland Championship.

2017 championship standings up to Round 11 Alford

 

A few technical and communications glitches delayed this publication and apologies.
Standings up to Round 11 Alford now available on the Results page as well as here: click here

 

Time for a few drivers to get the calculators out and work out what times they will need in the last 4 events as they drop the lower scores.

2017 championship standings up to Round 10 Fintray

 

As a newcomer , division leader AND class leader Derek Rothnie still holds on to his lead in all three and is also top of the table for overall champion. An inspiration to all who wish to come to take up the sport. Is he giving the competition a message with that glove ?

 

However, those close behind in all 4 will be looking to the dropped scores and to push him harder in the last 5 events to go till end of season and be hoping to overtake him.

 

Looks interesting too in the modified division , with Vicky Park having some lower scores to drop than current leader Jim Sugden in his Mini. Same too in the competition division with David Littlejohn’s lead over Charlie Fraser on same number of events. With only 14 points separating Derek Rothnie , Neil Hamilton and Jim Sugden , for overall champion, it  could go to any one.

2017 championship standings up to Round 6 Golspie

 

It is already looking interesting with less than 3 points separating Derek  Rothnie , Brian Wilson  and Neil Hamilton in their Clios in A2. Similarly only  4 points between Robert Cockling  , Julian Noble and Eddie Noble in A4. With less than half a second separating father son due Roy and John Munro in their new OMS, it all looks interesting for the rest of the season. So we have had a well attended and busy first 6 rounds and now everyone getting ready for Round 7 and 8 at Boyndie.

 

Apologies for the delay in getting results out to the championship contenders and for limited updates on the page but we have been busy with other matters around the championship but hope we are all back to normal now.

As last year, we are running to common  regulations and are pleased to continue to support the MX5 Register with the class A9. We are returning to a £10 per championship format and do hope the attraction of the competition will continue to find that those of you who wish , as in previous years, will enter the Lowland in addition.

Awards dinner

 

The 2016 PR Highland Speed Championship and MAXSport Competition Tyres (Scotland)  Lowland Speed Championship Dinner Dance & Presentation of Awards will be held on

Saturday, 18th March 2017

Golden Lion Hotel, Stirling

 

Held just before the 2017 season starts, it is an opportunity to celebrate the success of the 2016 Season, both the Highland Speed Championship and Lowland Speed Championship have come together to jointly hold a Dinner with Presentation of the Awards for the season 2016.  To continue with the evenings celebrations, after the formalities have concluded, there will be a Ceilidh Dance with the music being provided by the highly acclaimed “Voice Box Ceilidh Band”.  

 

There will be a raffle held during the evening and this will follow the now traditional method of placing £5 in an envelope bearing your name.  There will be no limit to the number of envelopes, which will be made available to you on the evening.

A raffle requires prizes to succeed and already, along with donations from our clubs, there are a few top prizes from Motorsport businesses. We do need your support however and ask that you consider providing a prize for the evening.  

 

If you are currently in possession of a Championship Trophy  presented in the 2015 season, could you contact the Coordinators to make arrangements for their return.

 

It promises to be a great evening and an opportunity to remember the past and those we have lost as well as looking forward to a new season.

 

Booking details here.

 

 

Sunday 20th November 2016
New organisation going forward ....

 

Great news for 2017.

 

The following email has been sent to all past competitors in the PR Highland Speed Championship and the Maxsport Competition Tyres (Scotland) Lowland Speed Championship ....

 

Hi All

 

The 2016 season of the Lowland and Highland Speed Championships have come to a close and may we convey our congratulations to all the award winners.

 

Sadly, however, the 2016 season also saw the passing of David Baker who, as you will all know, played a huge part in the organisation and running of these Championships.

 

With the need for a decision as to whether these Championships should continue for 2017 there was a requirement for a replacement for David.  To allow sufficient time for the MSA to approve the Regulations for 2017, a decision surrounding this had to be taken at the earliest opportunity so that they might be submitted in a timely fashion.  There are many facets  to the organisation of these Championships, not least personnel to replace David.  We have had several discussions around the work needed to be done and are pleased to say that we have been able to identify a Committee to take this forward.

 

Each of the Clubs who’s events we would like to include in our Championships have been approached, and all have agreed, in principle, that the Championships would continue for the coming season.  East Ayrshire Car Club have agreed to their standing as organising Club for the Lowland Championship and Highland Car Club for the Highland Championship.  Both of the major sponsors are happy to continue their support and the presentation of awards will take place on Saturday 18th March 2017 at the Golden Lion in Stirling.

 

As a previous competitor in these Championships it is hoped that you will continue to support the events throughout the 2017 season.  There will be no major changes to the Regulations or events for this season to allow us to regroup and plan ahead for the future.

 

The people who have offered their services to make up the Committee are Ian Thompson, Iain Scoular, Pete Lawton (Highland Car Club) and Russell Fair (East Ayrshire Car Club) supported by Jim Clark, Lynn Glen, Peter Locke, Stewart Stoddart and Joanna Young.  If you feel you would like to be involved in any of the organisation then we would welcome your offer of assistance.

 

There is a lot to be done in a short space of time, however, I am sure that we can look forward to another successful season as we continue the work that David had begun.

 

Yours in sport.

 

Iain Scoular & Ian Thompson
