Looks like there is no race at Knockhill this year - a great pity after last years outing

see web site for more details of this years races

An extra race has gone in between the calendar printed on 8 Jan and that on 27 Jan so there's hope yet!

No chance I'm afraid, this was the reply to my post 10th Jan on National Forum by one of the Max Five drivers :-

Revised MaX5 dates as follows

23 April, Mallory Park
7 May, Donington Park
27-28 May, Pembrey, Double Header (was October 14-15)
17 June, Oulton Park
22-23 July, Silverstone (Additional Race)
5-6 August, Snetterton, Double Header
19-20 August, Brands Hatch (was 12-13 August)
3 September, Cadwell Park, Double Header
30 September, Silverstone, Double Header

An Additional Pre Season opener at Anglesey on the 26th March
With 3 races and an entry price of ?10 with under 16?s free, will make a good day out for those wanting to watch a MaX5 race. This is the most scenic circuit in the UK with backdrop view of Snowdonia across the sea, and a great drive across the north Wales coast road.

Unfortunately there is no Knockhill this year, all dates and venues are set by BARC with MaX5 having very little say in the matter. As always MX5 owners are always welcome at all events. For those coming along and spectating, please make yourselves known in the paddock.

Once again Scotland misses out because it's too far, too expensive, too much trouble to come north of Leeds.
Why do those in control not realise Silverstone was once a small circuit too, Knockhill (Scotland) will never become great unless it gets exposure and chances.
I may be niave but this makes me sick, and I was born in Grimsby.

Given the quality of the racing, you'd have thought they'd want to come back. I can understand the distance argument (although it also discriminates against Scottish based drivers), but if they had 4 legs over 2 days, you would think that would make it worthwhile.

Considering the amount of damage some of the cars received last year perhaps its no surprise...or
Is the real reason that the circuit is too technical for them :- Hills & Dips oh no :shock:

Facing the correct way seemed to be a problem for some of them ;-)
