December 2017 News
Well here it is – the 2018 FJHRA Calendar
It contains something for absolutely everyone, from our birthplace at Monza, to our 2 grid bonanza at the Silverstone Classic, from new circuits to discover to old favourites to rediscover.
With the 2017 season seeing 109 UK Championship Competitors, 78 in the Lurani, and 281 individuals so far on the World Tour, the FJ Family is an exciting community to be a part of, and we’re delighted we’ll be welcoming a number of new drivers to the fold in 2018!
The FJ Diamond Jubilee World Tour may be 2 years in already, but we truly believe 2018 will be the most rewarding and spirited year of fun yet!
For any of you who aren’t currently paid members, you are all welcome, as racers or non racers.

FJHRA Charity Auction
Thanks to the generosity of donors and bidders alike, and of course the standup performance of Auctioneer Michael-Ashley Brown, our 2017 Charity Auction raised a fantastic £1475. This will be split equally between our 2 chosen charities this year; the British Motorsport Marshals Club and the Henry Surtees Foundation.
Over 40 of you have signed up so far for the Baltic Tour – so exciting!
For anyone who hasn’t received the latest Tour details, and would like to, don’t hestiate to get in touch. The more the merrier! Seperate Front and Rear engined grids at each event.
2017 Trophy Winners
Congratulations to all our worthy winners at our 2017 Prizegiving. Here is a link to the photos, thanks to Charlie Wooding
A few members have received emails saying they are from FJHRA, but the email address is entirely different, sometimes a german email address.
They are links to scam emails. Please do not open them!
I never ever send invoices as links, in fact I rarely ever send them at all! If I do, they are word document or PDF attachments.
Be cautious always. If it looks dodgy, 99.9% of the time it is dodgy!
Trailer for Sale?
Phil Foulkes is looking for a small covered trailer for his Lotus 20/22 for next season, when he’ll be joining us from NZ. Robin Longdon has offered to check out any that may be offered for sale. Please let me know if you have any leads I can forward to them?
Kind regards, and a very Happy Christmas!
