I'm a bit out of touch, should be back for next year though. Doesn't stop me keeping an eye on things and probably thinking too much.

SMRC needs a serious shake up for 2019. From what I can see it's dying a rapid death, something drastic needs to change. I don't know, maybe I've got it wrong, but certainly looks that way.

New clubs to run individual championships? Whole new club altogether? Knockhill MSC running some of the Championships? Affiliate with other existing series

There's no "one stop" solution to the rising discontent and lack of numbers but where do they go from here?

this weekend S&S entry looks pretty dismal Sad

No idea.... all the talk of change hasnt really changed much.

Saying that..... I'm quite content with the Minis. Decent comms/numbers etc

some of the series have done well, others are dying

minis, good grids of 20+ cars
classics, better than previous years
f-ford, probably about the same as before
legends, have improved a fair bit numbers wise
hot hatch & fiesta, under 10 st's and no hot hatches,
sports and saloons, pretty poor, grid bolstered by minis
BMW, 1 car in april, the split from BWM racedays was a screw up of brexit proportions, from averaging 30 cars a few years back to this

if knockhill/kmsc wanted to put the smrc out the game then they could have but thankfully they want to work with smrc. Marshal numbers have also dropped dramatically too, like barely enough for the MSA license, 15 track marshals on the saturday at TCR. Its bad
Race marshal found at knockhill and anywhere lunatics crash

opinions are my own and not those of any organisation I am involved with
