In relation to the Open Truggy class for the NSW State Titles;
If we do not have 8 confirmed entries by next Tuesday (18/10/22), this class will not go ahead.
The reasoning for this is because the club needs to organise plaques for this event and we need to give the printer sufficient notice to complete these. If the class does not run, any paid Truggy entries will have the choice to move their entry to GP/EP buggy, or obtain a refund.
Additionally, the decision has been made to have Controlled Practice on the Friday (4th November). We aim to have 4 - 5 practice rounds (this depends on total entries).
Seeding into qualifying will be completed using your top 3 consecutive laps from controlled practice during Friday.
As for Scrutineering; this will be completed during finals only, as this is when re-fueling comes into play. It will be up to the drivers to self scrutineer their car during Friday/Saturday to ensure it meets the RCRA/IFMAR rules. We will have people available to help you with process this if you are not sure.
Car Numbers; 3 x car numbers will be supplied and must be used at all times during Saturday/Sunday (one on front, two on either side).
Race Calling and race marshals; race marshals will be monitoring racing during finals and will have two-way radios back to race control. Any driver caught hacking/cheating will receive a warning/drive through penalty (penalty will be determined by race control and will depend on the severity of their actions). A driver will be issued one warning only before penalties will be handed down.
Finals; will be 12 cars total with minimum 3 bump.
EP finals are planned to have a bump system in place to make EP racing more interesting. This will be confirmed and explained in more detail at the drivers meeting Saturday morning.
I think that's about it for now. As advised previously, the event is only entry and payment only. Entry and payment MUST be made by 28th October. Any entries after this date will incur a $30 late fee.
All event info and entry form can be found HERE.

Just thought I would post up some information regarding Proline this weekend for anyone who is unsure or may not have been to our Club before.
Camping: is allowed. However, please keep in mind there is no showers at the facility, and the closest toilet block is a 5min walk down to the Athletics Field amenities.
Please also keep in mind that Council lock the entrance to the whole sporting complex at 11pm until 6am. Whether this is spot on 11pm, a bit before or a bit after we don't know and it is out of our control. So please ensure you have arrived/don't need to get your car out after this time.
Power: We have mains power at the track, so bring your extension leads and power boards.
Tables/Chairs/Marquees: We have a limited supply of chairs and tables. These are first in best dress.
If you have the ability to bring your own, we recommend doing so.
We do not have Marquees for this event - please BYO.
Water/Blow Off: We have a blow and wash bay at the track for all to use, so no need to BYO compressor.
Canteen: Will be open both Sat and Sun for food/drinks. EFTPOS is available for all purchases.

First Class: $30
Additional Classes: $15.
Additional Classes: Anyone running two classes must ensure that they marshal the races they are required too. Whether you do it yourself or get someone to fill in, it doesn't matter. But your marshal position must be filled. Failure to do so will lead to you losing your fastest qualifier.
Format/Schedule: Format will be standard Proline - 3 rounds qualifying, rocket round deciding your place in the finals, then ABC finals (EP to run 3 x 10min A final, and lower EP finals will be 2 x 10min).
Schedule will be posted once I have final numbers on entries (Friday).
Saturday will be open practice from 10am - 4pm.
Sunday we race.
Due to ACT States being postponed (wet weather) we have decided to run a Club Day this Sunday. This means we will be running back to back this Sunday and next Sunday (21/08/22 / 28/08/22).
See you there!
After careful consideration, both the IRC Committee and Proline Australia have agreed to cancel this weekends Proline Round.
This is due to the extreme weather forecast that is due to hit tomorrow and run all weekend.
We would prefer to call it early to allow everyone to cancel their accommodation and get refunded.
We will work with Proline Australia to get the event rescheduled and advise once we have an update.
Juniors class has been added to the entry list for Proline. Please note this class will require a minimum 7 entries to go ahead.
If the Junior that is racing is too young/inexperienced to marshal, it is the parents responsibility to marshal for them, or provide a replacement marshal.
Enter online HERE.
Finally, we have had a few weeks without rain and this has given us the opportunity to finish the track rebuild.
In some sections of the track, the clay was still very wet underneath the surface, making it extremely difficult to work with. It took two full weekends of machinery and the committee's time to get the track back into shape, but considering what it looked like 3 weeks ago, we are very proud of the efforts. HUGE thank you to all those involved - you know who you are.
Is it perfect? No. But it gives us the ability to start racing again and changes/fixed can be implemented as we move forward.
Thank you all for your patience. We can finally get back racing!
There is a Timed Practice Day scheduled for this Sunday (19/06/22). Memberships are also due for 2022 and are payable at the canteen this Sunday.
We hope to see you there!
Below are some pictures of the completed track.
Just wanted to give everyone an update on the track rebuild and where we are at to get back racing.
Unfortunately, as most of you are probably aware and dealing with yourselves, the weather over the last month or so has been atrocious and has meant we have not been able to get on the track with machinery at all. This has obviously pushed back our progress with the track rebuild, and with more heavy rain due over the next week, we are unsure as to when we may be able to get back on the track with machines to continue.
Fingers crossed this is sooner rather than later. I will be sure to keep posting updates here and on our Facebook group.
Stay safe in this weather everyone and hopefully we can get back to some racing soon!
Hope you all had a great Xmas and New Year. Just giving you all an update in regards to the track rebuild and the start of racing/some minor changes for 2022.
Track Rebuild: Firstly, we are still in the middle of the track rebuild. Unfortunately, the wonderful weather we have had of late has been pushing progress back. We have a lot of machinery booked in for next weekend, so we are hoping to smash out a huge weekend and get 95% of the build finished. This will (hopefully) allow us to get our first event underway the first weekend of Feb (weather permitting). We are bringing HUGE amounts of clay onto the track and believe when we are finished we will have a cracking track/surface.
Race Calendar: Our race calendar will be finalized and posted once I have a solid date for our first club day. I will post it up here and on our website as soon as this is finalized.
Memberships: A reminder that 2022 memberships are due and will be payable once we start racing at the canteen. The prices for memberships in 2022 have remained the same:
Sponsorships: The committee has made the decision that all sponsorships from 2021 will be carried over to 2022. Due to the lack of racing we did in 2021, we believe the sponsors did not get value for money. IF, however, you were a sponsor and are in the financial position to still contribute to the club, and would like too, please reach out - it would be much appreciated after the slow year we had due to lockdowns. If you would like to become a new sponsor of the club, please reach out to me directly to discuss.
Minor changes: Race fees for 2022 will have a minor change:
