LET­TERS Na­tional dis­grace

Motor Sport News - - Racing Reports -

I have re­turned from a sunny Don­ing­ton Park, feel­ing quite de­flated by what I had seen.

Su­perkarts had done their thing with some good rac­ing but the races were dom­i­nated by one or two driv­ers.

Brit­cars? What is the point of two 50-minute races for eight cars? I en­joy en­durance rac­ing but you need far more cars on the track to make it in­ter­est­ing. The or­gan­is­ers should be very wor­ried about the cham­pi­onship’s fu­ture.

The Ju­nior Sa­loon Car Cham­pi­onship is a great se­ries be­ing spoiled by poor driv­ing stan­dards, far too many cars fin­ished – or didn’t – with heavy dam­age. The head­mas­ter of the se­ries need to put some of these school chil­dren in de­ten­tion and sort things out for the good of the cham­pi­onship.

It was funny to see on one car a sticker about rac­ing with re­spect, this seems to be sadly miss­ing.

I think there must have been a lot of team own­ers wor­ry­ing about their re­spec­tive cham­pi­onship as they drove home.

The next meet­ing I go to will be a 750MC meet­ing at Cad­well Park. I am ex­pect­ing fuller grids, close rac­ing and ev­ery­body show­ing each other some re­spect.
