Re: New cars for 2019

Getting there, well done, give me a call when it’s ready to look at, doesn’t need to be “finished”, whatever small stuff is left I can check later. Just a reminder we don’t check “safety” items, that’s for Scrutineers, so seats, seat belts, window nets etc aren’t required.

Re: What's Hapenning with the U1600 Class?

It is easy to forget that the B16A is a 35 year old engine, hence it gets harder to find a decent one every year and there are simply better and cheaper alternatives. Hmm, I thought that the EG6 JDM SiR, SiR-II, and SiR-S had the B16A engine. So this variant allowed the Cox's (due to original block...

Re: What's Hapenning with the U1600 Class?

The Australian delivered B16A EK Civic is a VTiR (has VTEC), the EG and EF Civics are D16A's (no VTEC), trying to find an EK VTiR isn't easy or cheap these days. They also came standard with a glass sunroof which has to be removed. As a result most buy a lower spec model and then do the engine and g...

Re: What's Hapenning with the U1600 Class?

That’s a change of direction, you asked “What’s Happening” and I gave my opinion on that question. Nothing whatsoever to do with attracting new racers. I’m totally confident that anyone and everyone wanting to run an U1600 car will get the same welcome as anyone else wanting to run in IP, full and h...

Re: What's Hapenning with the U1600 Class?

That's why there are commentators and race programmes - to inform the two spectators that IPRA has about the cars, drivers and classes. You can get 240hp out of a BEAMS with a standard intake can you? And your mythical jap import engine is in excellent condition and will never need new rings? (at w...

Re: What's Hapenning with the U1600 Class?

Building a decent 1600 cc race engine costs a lot more than buying a used 2000 cc engine. There’s ~25% more torque and depending on the engine choice much the same BHP or even more. For example a Toyota Beams stock will make more power than a hot 4AGE. Then there are plenty of easy bolt ons to make...

Re: IPRANSW Rnd 1 SMSP April 6/7th 2019 - entries open

Lots of words Mik, but no facts or data. It's actually pretty simple, if we run combined grids 20+ years of history has proven that we will end up with similar numbers of U2L cars to the other States. For example Round 1 IPRAVic 7 x U2L cars, Round 1 IPRAWA 4 x U2L cars, Round 1 IPRASA 3 x U2L cars....

Re: IPRANSW Rnd 1 SMSP April 6/7th 2019 - entries open

None of the above is the real issue. If we promote a meeting as having split grids and then combine them, after competitors have entered, then we’ll have a lot of unhappy members. If we promote a meeting as possibly split or combined then competitors won’t enter and/or will wait until they know for ...

If IP start off combined and then split that means another category has to agree to drop that meeting. If IP start off split and then combined that means another category has to be added to that meeting. Neither of the NSW promoters will take less money or change their schedule just for IP. None of ...

We run as part of the CAMS NSW State Championship, the categories that run at each meeting are decided at the beginning of the year. Chopping and changing categories at individual race meetings isn’t practical, as every category knows and publicises it’s calendar at the start of the year. The NSW Mo...

The racing through the field was excellent and it was a great show by everyone! The combined grid was definitely far better to watch. It was excellent to drive in. The club meeting held last year to discuss it showed a far majority towards combined grids, so until we start oversubscribing grids eve...

Re: New cars for 2019

FWIW the original proposal for the Cosmo's inclusion on "the list" was tabled at the 2010 Delegates Meeting. It was well and truly pre the current "form" being required to be filled in, it was an email circulated amongst the Delegates and then tabled at the Meeting in Melbourne.

Well, looks like I have just suffered a bit of a setback - was on track for Wakefield and worse case Morgan park but torqued up the head last night and pulled a stud out of the block - pretty gutted, looking at options at the moment but looks like August will be the target now.

Re: IPRANSW Rnd 1 SMSP April 6/7th 2019 - entries open

My reasoning for the qualy split is pretty easy to explain; 46 cars means that some will still be filtering out of the dummy grid while others are powering down the straight at full tilt. With seeded grids the faster cars would have logically left the dummy grid first so we would have cars with ~240...
