Demise of the Dunlop VAG Trophy......as we know it
« on: January 05, 2015, 06:05:59 pm »
So some of you in the know may have heard some rumours of drivers being unhappy with the way the current owner ran the championship in 2014 after buying it from John Hillon.

Well as a result of said persons attitude the majority of the field has decided to walk away from the championship and one of the well connected drivers has organised for a breakaway series to be run by the Classic Touring Car Racing Club....the series will be cheaper to register for and will be cheaper to enter each round which will all be double headers of 15min races, with the option to also race in Thunder saloons for 1/2 price during same meetings  :)

It's a great shame that we have been forced to take such drastic action, however unfortunately the current owner is a complete ****!

I will keep you all updated as and when any further information becomes available.

Cheers,

Tim

Disappointing.
Rallycross went a similar way late 90's. Early to mid 90's we had massive grids (28 in the 1600 class alone !) then someone decided to try and copy Bernie (F1) and get rich. Entry fees went sky high, clubman retired.

Hope it all sorts itself out. The one thing you need is stability when it takes such a huge commitment to get a car onto the grid
