Having a dig at the National Minis over the tannoy for low car turn outs at recent Kings Lynn meetings is totally out of order.

If you limit the amount of races to 3 a meeting what do you expect?

Don't limit the number of races to 3 and the club will run as normal and hey presto a good car turn out.

Plus the fact there was plenty time Saturday night to run 4 races as last year. And don't use the lack of pit space old chestnut you could have got another 10 Minis in the pits easily.

Come on Lynn sort the job out its NOT the Minis fault!!

There are certain rules that commentators must abide by or face litigation. These include no profanity or comments that may cause distress to others or bring the sport into disrepute. A yellow card may well be in order for this one...... or a simple,375x360.u8.png tongue

Let's be honest the mini's were the poorest I have seen for many a long day. And if a third of those booked chose not to apear the promoter has every right to explain this to his paying punters.
Imagine the response on social media if a third of the F1's had failed to show.

Maybe so Andy, but due to the promoter telling the NMSC that they would only get 3 races at all meetings this year they were left with the option of restricting car numbers or running 2/3rds heats and no final. The latter wouldn't have been fair to expect people to travel for 2 races so they opted for restricted numbers and bookings offered on a rota basis if they were oversubscribed. With this in mind it was decided not to award national points on Kings Lynn meetings as it could have a negative impact on those unable to race, so all Lynn meetings just score points towards grid positions for a Kings Lynn championship. Therefore, drivers and their families are bound to prioritise other meetings that are carrying grading points.
I believe that several of those that didn't turn up cancelled during the week due to damage incurred the previous week or due to transport issues, and I am sure this would have been conveyed to the promoter.
He has a habit of playing politics as he did the same to F2 a few years ago, but to then slag off the formula over the PA when he has caused the situation is very unfair on the young drivers and the hard working committee and parents.

You are spot on Dave it's not the Minis fault, it could be solved by letting them have 4 races but it won't happen. Seems best just to slag them off.

And like I said in the first post there is plenty of time.

You've only got to look at other tracks turn outs to see its only at Lynn they are low. Should'nt that tell you something.
