David’s Observations
   -    These grades will come into force on 1 July 2024.  The next grading period of season 2024 will run
         from 21 June to 20 July inclusive.
   -    In order to be eligible for downgrading on 1 August 2024, you must race a minimum of three times
         between 21 June and 20 July and also have raced at least once between 21 May and 20 June.
   -    International drivers are shown on the grading list solely for information purposes.  Their positions
         have no effect on grades.
   -    Points, appearances etc., are from meetings attended, that are on the National Fixture List.

Blacklist
         There has been a marked improvement in the standard of presentation of roof/wing grade colours
         and the legibility and legality of the display of registered numbers on cars.  Thank you to all drivers
         who have made the effort.
         However, during my travels over the past month I have noted the following cars as still showing a
         poor representation of grade colour on the car’s wing (and there might be others I haven’t spotted)
         – 121, 501, 844, 903, 931.
         Also a mention for 667, whose wing numbers are illegible when viewed from across the infield on
         the far side of the track.
