Provisional point results will be emailed out this week. (Gary and Kevin, we are aware of the name swap. Will be altered for points J)Final thoughtI asked a few drivers about the MSNZ rule on when two cars are considered to have an overlap and when room must be given. I was surprised that out of the 14 drivers I asked, only ONE driver knew. Very concerning.  This information is available on the MSNZ website and I urge you all to search this out for yourselves. However, expect a full explanation here soon.On another note, the handicap races for “2 litre” and “Open” received cheers from the “timing booth” and “Race control” Teams for some of the fantastic Driving. I figure if they thought it was something special (with all the racing they see), it really was!!!  Well done to you all.Regards,Nikolas GladiadisSecretaryCastrol BMW Race Driver Series
