It's with great sadness that we are having to cancel this weekends Christmas Party due to weather. We have already received around 30mm of rain and with much more forecasted for tomorrow, plus no sunny/warm weather and more rain on the way on the weekend, there is zero chance of the facilities drying out.
But, it's not all bad news... With weekends after this starting to get close to Christmas and many people having events or commitments, we are re-scheduling for our first event back in 2024. This will be Saturday and Sunday 20th/21st January, 2024.
Our 2024 calendar will be posted very soon, so keep your eyes out.
From all of the committee, thank you for your support in 2023 and we will be back bigger and better in 2024 - see you all then and have a safe and happy Christmas/New Year!
To all members.
Our AGM for 2023/24 season will be held at the conclusion of our next Club Day (05/11/23). I suspect this will be approx 3-3.30pm.
All members are welcome to have your say on the 2023/24 committee.
If the event is rescheduled due to weather, the AGM will also be rescheduled.
Track work for Proline will be starting tomorrow. The track will be closed from the point work begins until Saturday's practice at Proline. Please respect the work that goes into a big event by staying off the track.
Any racer caught on the track during this time will forfeit their entry in Proline.
- IRC Committee.
In the best interest of the Club and Members, we have decided to move the Timed Practice Day scheduled for Sunday to tomorrow (03/06/23).
This is due to rain being forecasted on Sunday.
The track will be open from 11am-4pm.
Fees are $10 for members, $20 for non-members.
With last Sunday being cancelled, and the Australian GP on this Sunday, we have decided to run a Timed Practice Day this Saturday. The track was inspected today and is dry everywhere other than a few spots on the straight which the club will sort out tomorrow.
Track will be open between 9am - 3pm.
Fees: $10 member, $20 non-member.
Due to the recent rain, tomorrow's Club Day (26/03/23) has been cancelled. The track has been inspected today and is completely soaked. With more rain forecasted today and possibly more tomorrow, there is no chance of it drying to the point we can run.
The committee will have a discussion and advise if we can reschedule this in due course.
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.
