An open invite from Jeremy Heaver to have your say

cov-logo1-575x382
In the Coventry program (06/06/09) Jeremy Heaver’s regular column (Heave-ho) focused on the need for change within BriSCA F1 in the present economic climate. Underneath is shortened, edited version of his main points.

Perhaps we just have too many meetings for the present economic climate for drivers to be able to afford to do and you the public to be able to afford to attend….I feel the time is right to offer some ideas as to how we can get positive about the future….

  • we need to transform the grading system so that we have equal amounts of cars in all grades by making the elite downgrade if they are not scoring points or not racing
  • the rulebook should only be amended every three years unless we are required to do so under H&S legislation
  • the fixture list needs reducing by ten fixtures and I believe the guest tracks should be the starting point….as they have invested the least into BriSCA. For the record Coventry lose a date should that be required
  • the major championships all need to be overhauled and QR’s need to be reduced. National Series rounds should never be allocated to championship dates and all titled events should be on a rota.
  • Introduction of a National Grading Award for each grade on each surface…The old National Grade Champion title should be surface specific on it’s reintroduction
  • We should have a BMB annual awards dinner so both BriSCA and the BSCDA can reward people; with some of the winners being voted for by the public
  • We should consider how to introduce a 50/50 lottery with half the money going to the driver of the night as determined by the steward
  • All tracks should have a guest driver from a different form of motorsport at least twice a season
  • We all consider a £1 fee for entering the pits with all proceeds to be used to add to existing prize funds at Championship Meetings and to offer scholarships to drivers from other formulas

I have only raised a small number of ideas and I know that some will be rubbished but if you have better suggestions let’s start the debate by sending me your ideas. I will pick the best ideas and publish them in next month’s programme and hopefully together we can make the changes that are needed to take the sport forward. These suggestions will help crystallise opinion around the promoter’s table for discussion with the drivers.
