Ich muss euch mal den Schriftverkehr hier posten. Ich finde die kümmern sich nahezu liebevoll um ihre potenziellen Teilnehmer.
Our sincere apologies with the lack of response from our Governing Body, the MCUI (Ulster Centre). Sheila Sinton, our Race Secretary, has tried to ring the person in MCUI (Jim Cray) but has not been able to reach him.
You may wish to consider getting an A Licence as usually this indicates your Governing Body considers you to be ready/experienced/quick enough to compete in international races.
The start permission from your governing body should include Personal Accident Insurance which includes repatriation insurance - Limits of Indemnity - Death – EUR €25,000, Capital Benefits (Total Disablement) – EUR €50,000, Medical Expenses – EUR €100,000 and Repatriation Expenses – EUR €50,000.
The MCUI Visitors Licence process is there so that the MCUI can see what experience and results you have and at which circuits so they can determine which classes are appropriate eg someone relatively new/inexperienced and/or relatively slow would go in our Junior/Senior Support classes. However, if your experience and results at road racing circuits in Europe (not purpose built short circuits) demonstrate your experience and results then you would be eligible for what we call the national or open classes. I would suggest you enter whichever you believe is most suitable whilst awaiting the outcome of the visitor licence.
Please note that the Tandragee 100 course is very technical, bumpy, it rises and falls and has jumps. I would strongly suggest that you watch as many on-board videos as you can, particularly from the slightly slower Junior/Senior Support classes and arrive at the course as early as possible (even a few days before) so you can drive around the course many times before going out on your first practice. Our Facebook Group (click here) is very active with lots of information including on-board videos.
Can you please advise if you understand spoken English well enough to attend a riders briefing in English or if we need to try to make alternative/special arrangements. This will ensure you not only understand all the procedures but also the explanation of the course from our experienced ex-racer Trainers.
I will also share this email with our MCUI (Ulster Centre) Tarmac Committee which is due to meet this week to see if we can get a satisfactory answer about the Visitor Licence.
We wish you well with your preparations and hope that you really enjoy your experience of racing at the Tandragee 100.
