- Round 4 is on the 20th Feb at Manfeild, we will have two grids.
- The event is an “IRC” race meeting, it will be the first time we have have run with them.
- By default they require a manual entry form and the class to organise its own entries and payments. Due to the scale of the 2KCUP class we have organised to use motorsportentry.com (Thanks to HRC) for our entry’s rather than using the manual form.
- The cut off is 5th Feb, you will need to have made payment in full by this date, CHEQUE will not be accepted but second drivers can use this payment method to avoid paying twice.
- Following the 5th Feb the 2KCUP will make a consolidated payment to Manawatu Car Club who are the organising car club and handover the full 2KCUP entry list.
- At the moment the program has us Qual in morning, race at lunch and race at the end of the day. We have requested the last round of races be brought forward to no later than mid afternoon.
- I’ll do another newsletter once entries close.
