BriSCA F1 Charity Chase
News  Last Updated: 19/08/2020 17:41

The BSCDA and BriSCA are delighted to announce more information regarding “The Chase” Championship which will be the race for the Rainbow Roof. 

We have been working closely with race fans David and Ben Crosby over the past few months organising this extra special eleven round series. 

Here are a few words from Ben himself

“I think we can all agree that it is great to finally be back racing after this whole “extended break” that we have been forced to have because of the circumstances of the world right now. This Corona-virus pandemic has devastated the country and required us to call on our wonderful NHS and key frontline staff more than could ever had been imagined; the bravery and sacrifice of our doctors, nurses, teachers, shopworkers, lorry drivers, etc. to get us to a position where life can resemble some normality is remarkable and requires all our gratitude. To these heroes, the BriSCA F1 Family of drivers, teams, fans and promotions wants to say THANK YOU. We intend to race a limited 2020 season as a tribute to your efforts.

We aim for this special series to be one to remember for the right reasons and do some good by raising money in support of NHS Charities Together. This supports the over 240 NHS charities across the UK and helps their hospitals and staff to do more. From tech support, to staff welfare, to access when they need it to mental health agencies, to local trust ambulances, all our supported by this central fund.
The reward for winning this interesting new once in a lifetime title opportunity is the honor of wearing the Rainbow Roof. A brand new aerofoil, that is being donated by one of our fellow stockcar racer and being signwritten by a former stockcar racer, it will have all the colours of the Rainbow on the roof as a tribute to all NHS workers that have used their time to help use back here and racing. Another interesting part of the roof is that anybody that donates £10 to the GoFundMe page will be awarded with your name on the roof showing that you have help with the cause. 

However, it isn’t just your name on the roof you could have, as for £20 you could get your name as well as either an official chase series T-shirt or a chance to win on of our fantastic prizes in the Rainbow Raffle. Where the BriSCA F1 Family has decided to give something back to the fans. With things to win like Track Days (Various Formulas), Workshop Open Days (Covid-19 Permitting), ticket subscriptions and other stox prizes. This will be drawn at the series finale on the 8th November and to be in with a chance of winning just donate as below to potentially get something not just a stox-fan, but a fan of motorsport would absolutely love. 

• For a minimum £10 donation you will get your name added to The Rainbow Roof
• For minimum £20 you get your name added and also will get one entry to the Rainbow Raffle. (Each £20 = 1 raffle entry so £40 would get 2 shots, etc.)
• For minimum £30 you can add your company logo and get one entry to the Rainbow Raffle 
• For minimum £40 you can have all above plus a reserve for the official t-shirt
• Of course, all donations are kindly received

The Fund currently has a goal of £5k but we’re certain that we can easily beat that target goal, as we are sure that you all can come together and help this special cause. To donate go to Gofundme.com and Search for BriSCA or like the BriSCA F1 The Chase 2020 on Facebook and find the pinned message that links to the GoFundMe. Also Stay tuned for updates and more prize reveals over the next few weeks, I am sure you do not want to miss any of this!!! 

LET’S GO RACING!
Ben Crosby”

So how does it all work?

Attendance points : 10 for each driver that races per round.

Race points : All races (except stand alone white and yellows races) will be based on the number of cars that take to the grid in each race. Points will be scored for all finishing drivers as recorded by my laps down to 1 point.

For example 24 cars in a race will see the winners scoring 24 pts, second 23 pts, third 22 pts etc down to 24th 1 point. If only 6 cars finish, points will only be scored down to sixth.
Final winners will still start “The Chase” Grand National a lap down and will be awarded double points wherever they finish. They will not receive the standard 5 bonus points if they finish outside the top 12.
Drivers will be allowed to play one Rainbow Joker which must be confirmed when booking in a week previous. When the joker is in play all points scored at that meeting will be doubled, including attendance points.

Points will be scored for “The Chase” up to Round 10. “The Chase" Final at Sheffield will see 24 cars take to a closed grid Final in points scoring order. Subject to confirmation there will be a last chance race where two positions will be up for grabs. The first and second place driver will take to the back row of the “The Chase” Championship Final race. A full format meeting will follow. 

There will also be “The Chase” Series grade awards winners from the 10 rounds which will be announced before the meeting starts at Sheffield.
