I'd be up for 'having a go' but the rules say I need a mounted fire extinguisher and not drilling holes in the floorpan of my road car to mount in the footwell

Possibly the worst excuse for not getting involved I have seen up to press.

Make a bracket and pick up on your seat mounts, mount the fire extinguisher to that.....

Says the person that can't even pay £35 memership fee

I plan to do that now but not got the time to compete this season is the main reason so wasn't one of those crying out for the MLRSS to run BUT they did change the rules a bit for 2017. As for 'not getting involved... organised much for the MLR yourself?
thought not..

What does me not paying membership have to do with anything? Or "organising" something for the Mlr? Just to be clear I've Done every round for the past 3years with the Mlrss does that count as not contributing? oh and I've also co scruiteneered the Subaru's on occasion
Now get that bracket made

I can see now why Darin gets so frustrated with this, so negative. You guys are so lucky to have people that sit behind this forum organising events etc. It takes so much time and effort to organise this series, a bit of support wouldn't go amiss

I'd like to have done this one as it's close to home for me, but I have no MoT on my track car, so I am not eligible to enter the Sprint. I have booked a track day elsewhere instead.

Am afraid to say and yes Iv'e said it before, the past real Evo enthusiasts (Drivers) should i say are dwindling, and all we've got these days are your collectors and garagre queens, and the polishers, those that would rather stand in a field with their hoods up talking the talk, and when not doing that the're cruising round to MacDonalds.

Yes there an't many of us left now by comparison, its a real shame that many members just don't appreciate what the club has or should say "had" to offer. What other car clubs put on events like sprints and track days, where you can actually release the cars full potential.

Get it done then, even the TA cars "Cough" have an MOT, shouldn't be hard.

I think C1-R do a fire extinguisher bracket which bolts to the seat frame, might be worth a call

Why would I bother for one Sprint. I don't know a garage that would pass my car, and wouldn't want to ask them to break the law anyway.

I don't recall ever being asked to produce my MOT at an MLR sprint.

The MLR is, in my opinion, one of the best clubs around, it's far more than a forum/facebook talking and polishing shop.

It would be a shame to see the sprint series go but unless the entries pick up then thats whats going to happen, no lack of effort on the part of Darin and the MLR sprint faithful can make it work if the entries don't come in.

Each event is very well run and good value compared to other similar motorsport.

If your Evo can't stand an MLR sprint then it certainly won't stand a few miles of spirited road use.
