Autosport International Show 2017

Last Updated: 24/10/2016 10:00

NEC 2017 Autosport & Oval Racing Show - IMPORTANT INFO for drivers & Race fans The ORCi and BriSCA previously advised we would not be attending the forthcoming Show due to a lack of clarity of what was actually happening and timescales However, and after considerable and helpful dialogue with Kate Woodley of Autosport, we are delighted to advise that we will once again be supporting the Oval Racing element of this iconic show. Whilst there had been some mis understanding given the retirement of Malcolm & Brenda Forbes of Waltham Services who managed this show on behalf of Autosport International, constructive dialogue with regards 2017 and future years has taken place. We are delighted to have been able to find a constructive resolution which enables us to once again participate with enthusiasm with an eye on the future as to how Oval Racing can work closer with Autosport to deliver an even better show and product for visitors. ORCi and BriSCA will issue further releases in the coming weeks once plans for the Oval element and floorspace plans have been finalised and we will keep you updated. Contacts will be made available shortly via ORCi promoters for competitors who wish to display cars at the show so this may be co-ordinated. In relation to 'Live Action' we are also delighted to confirm that BriSCA F1 will once again take their part on the stage as they have for many years.

Please note that it has recently come to the attention of the ORCi Ministox Association that after market (adjustable) lower front suspension arms are being used. All suspension components must be standard items. The rules permit the lower arm (in its original/standard form) to be lengthened or shortened but they must not be adjustable. Should a driver’s car be found to have lower suspension arm in contravention of this rule at the completion of a race, they will be subject to the standard ORCi six month ban for a technical infringement
