AREA 7

2023


Area 7 will decide its 2023 qualifiers in as close as possible to the same way as was used in 2022, 2018 (and for many years before).       Places for the 3 main classes in 2022 (Saloon, F1 and Sports) will be allocated to area 7 drivers based on their overall positions in the 2022 ,  then the previous season overall finishing position in the 2022 Southern 32 championship then BSCRA Driver Rankings on 1st February.

It seems likely that  there will be unused spaces at the 2023 Nationals, but we need to have a qualifying system in place just in case it’s needed.


Ant Hawkes was an Area 7 driver in 2022 when he won the main grade in the 2022 1/32 BOC and would have been Area Champion had he remained in Area 7 but has now registered in Area 1

----------------------

National qualifying has been reinstated for the 2022 Nats.      Area 7 will decide its 2022 qualifiers in as close as possible to the same way as was used in 2018 (and for many years before).   We would normally use the previous season’s BOC, but the 2021 BOC was cancelled.     Places for the 3 main classes in 2022 (Saloon, F1 and Sports) will be allocated to area 7 drivers based on their overall positions in the 1/32 BOC meetings up to the Nats qualifying date in the 2022 BOC,  then the previous season overall finishing position in the 2021 Southern 32 championship then BSCRA Driver Rankings on 1st February.

It seems likely that  there will be unused spaces at the 2022 Nationals, but we need to have a qualifying system in place just in case it’s needed.


National’s qualification requirements for INTRO 32 and Clubman Saloon

For 2022 the clubman Nats are open entry, so qualifying is not needed.


-----------------2021-------------------------------


The 2020 Nationals were cancelled due to Covid and the 2020 qualifiers were eligible for the 2021 Nationals.  In reality there were plenty of unused spaces at the 2021 Nationals so qualification wasn’t needed.


-----------------2020-------------------------------

National’s qualification requirements for Saloon, F1 and Sports

National qualifying has been reintroduced for the 2020 Nats, where as 2019 was open entry.   Area 7 will decide its 2020 qualifiers in the same way as was used in 2018 (and for many years before).  Places for the 3 main classes (Saloon, F1 and Sports) will be allocated to area 7 drivers based on their overall finishing position in the previous season 1/32 BOC championship, then 1/32 BOC results up to the Nats qualifying date in the 2020 BOC,  then the previous season overall finishing position in the Southern 32 championship then BSCRA Driver Rankings on 1st February.
