Entries received in record time!

 

The 2015 event has seen the entry list potentially fill in the quickest time ever and it is great to see such a wide range of cars and experience in the list. It just goes to show that The South Downs Stages is truly an event for everyone. We are delighted to see many of the top Southern tarmac drivers returning and this year we have a little surge of V8 engined cars – 3 x TR7 V8s, a Rover SD1 and for the first time we welcome 2 x Ferrari 308 Michelottos. As a consequence we will run a ‘V8 Challenge’ within the event with a trophy kindly donated by Classic Construction. As always there will be a bit of midnight oil being burned to ensure cars are ready on the day. None more so this year than one of our key event sponsors Paul King, who had a wall jump out in front of him at the last event of 2014 the Rockingham Stages, luckily without injury to either crew member. Our commiserations go to him and we hope that all will be well by Feb 14th. Also as the 2015 event falls on St Valentine’s Day we couldn’t let that pass without offering a mixed crew award as well.

Acceptance of entries

 

Dear Competitor

This year we find ourselves in the unique position of, to date, having considerably more entries than places available on the day, the limit as per the regs being 55 cars. In previous years the entry has not filled until much later in January and so some of our regular entrants have had the luxury of not having to worry about paying for the entry until the new year.

In order to be fair to competitors on both sides of the coin we have decided that unpaid entries up to the 55th entrant will have until 5th January to pay before entries 56 onwards (in receipt of entry order) take a place on the confirmed entry list.

Experience from the past ten South Downs suggests that reserve entries stand a fair chance of finding themselves within the 55 car limit by the week before the event. As stated in the regs any cancellations up to the closing date for entries or reserves unable to be placed will receive a refund in full.
