Statement from Chairman

Fuel

Following the statement below that was issued earlier in the year, the BoC have been asked to provide some clarity to the matter.

Fuel samples were taken from cars at Belle Vue 01/07/18  (Cars – 1, 24, 67, 84, 110, 299, 287, 391, 392) Onchan 30/07/18 (cars – 1, 53, 381, 392, 405) and Northampton 16/09/18 (cars – 1, 53, 110, 246, 290, 381 after National Championship race, and then 1, 53, 110, 246, 277, 290, 381 after final) so a total of 27 samples have been tested.

Northampton in particular, the top 6  in the National Championship race were checked, even though the club supplied the fuel, the samples were compared to a control sample taken from the supplied fuel cans and the results were identical, clearly eliminating the suggestions of false tanks, fuel bombs etc. For the other samples there were several test results that indicated anomalies in a number of the samples which after further analysis are firmly believed to be attributed to the additive that teams may be using. The vast range of additives available all have different ingredients and are making the tests time consuming, difficult and expensive.

To clarify, ALL TEAMS CHECKED WERE LEGAL TO THE CURRENT RULES.

We trust that this now clears up this concern.

 

Important Notice (Original notification)

In recent weeks the club have taken fuel samples from several cars at the track, detailed analysis of the fuel has shown discrepancies indicating that non- compliant fuel maybe being used

The club has taken the decision to file the information obtained, and in fairness to the young drivers who have limited input into the fuel they run the club has taken the pragmatic decision to carryout no further action at this point.

The club would like remind all teams of the rules regarding fuel:

Only pump petrol that is available from a minimum of 200 UK roadside stations with a maximum rating of 99 octane is permitted. Valve lubricant or octane boost is permitted provided that it does not increase the overall fuel to more than 103 octane. No other fuels or additives are permitted, nor the use of fuel scents and fragrances. Random fuel supplying (chargeable) and checks may be undertaken and any guilty party will be responsible for the payment of that supply/laboratory tests and will face disciplinary action. The fuel supplied will be Shell V Power, plus Lucas additive. This will be done in a controlled manner.

The club is issuing this notice as a Warning to all teams that we will be continuing to test Fuel throughout the season and any variations found from the permissible fuel stated in the rules will be dealt with using the strictest punishment available

Christmas meeting

You maybe aware that the Christmas meeting scheduled for Stoke has been moved to Belle Vue on January 1st.

The promoter has asked for an indication of car numbers so that arrangement can be made to ensure that the day is as success for the spectators.
There for could you please book in with Amanda ASAP so that you we can provide the information requested.
Please remember that this is the WInternational’s championship.
