sign on 250wEntries close in mid-December and assuming that entries are over-subscribed, as they have been since the turn of the century, a ballot takes place to allocate the entries.  Those who get in will tell you it is a great system and those who don't will insist that it is a fix, but the reality of the situation is that we draw the places in the only fair way that we can, and that is by allocation places at random.

However, there is a catch – not all 270 places are allocated in the ballot.  Thirty places are set aside for formal factory teams and fifty are set aside for the Club to allocate at their discretion.  There are also some sponsorship deals available which include guaranteed places for our sponsors to allocate at their discretion.  All remaining places are drawn at random through the draw.  Believe it or not, we really do cut up pieces of paper with the names on them, drop them into a big bowl and draw each place out one by one! It's the only fair way to do it.
