DEWS Speed series. Turn up to a good range of spints and hillclimbs in whatever you happen to have, without having to meet the blue book to the letter.

As above, competing in the DEWS Speed Series. Find a local club, go along to some events to watch, see what events you fancy. MSA - Find a Club

Local clubs will enter as a single class at events run by other clubs and organisations, then work out points using their own classes and scoring methods. They will also govern their class(es) using Supplementary Regulations (SR's), quite often allowing the use of road legal cars with minimum modifications. Base licence is MSA National B (Non Race) - cheap and easy to apply for.

The additional requirements for our Nat B events are (Based on a 'standard' road legal mini):

- Oil Catch Tank (min 1l)
- Tow points front and rear (Marked)
- Timing strut to be attached to the front
- Solid mounted seat
- No holes in bulkheads or parcel shelf
- Race numbers - can be as simple as printing them and putting them in the rear window

Personal Safety Requirements:

- Overalls - to either FIA 8856-2000 or FIA 1986 standard
- Helmet - Snell approved helmet
- Gloves - Karting gloves are suitable

Feel free to add to the list above if I've missed anything...

Any questions, let me know. Stu

Something I wrote a few years ago

No requirement for a catchtank or tow points in roadgoing classes. In fact I see no requirement for tow points in any hillclimb class.

Interesting Wil about the catch tank, the scrutineers recently picked me up for not having the 1l capacity.

I think the addition of tow straps is an easy mod to prevent any damage during recovery. It also helps me load on the trailer when it's broke!!

I've always been told by the scrutineers that S-10.3.5 applied

"Engine Oil Systems Unless equipped with a closed loop system, a Catch tank of at least a one litre capacity to be incorporated in the oil breather system."

I was told that I'd be ok for this year with the 650ml tank but it should be changed for next year.

Well, yes. But most road cars have a closed loop system and it isn't required.

If you just have your breathers open to air you'll need something. Which as we're on a mini forum seems to be the norm.

Yep, but a seized engine in the first event shortened the season.

All up and running now. Next is getting it going faster.

Hopefully get the Mini out again next season too.

I race my mini in the welsh sports and saloons championships. It's great as you race agains all sorts, and is one of the cheapest forms of circuit racing.
