Update regarding IRC Off Road and Corona Virus (COVID-19).
We are currently looking into the effects that COVID-19 may have on club activities moving forward.
Once we have solid information and answers we will post an update both here and on our Facebook page.
Unfortunately the committee has made the decision to cancel this Sunday's race meet.
There is the possibility to see over 300mm in the next few days and we have already got >30mm overnight so we have absolutely no chance of getting on the track. The track will also need some repairs after this rain subsides.
At the moment, we are rescheduling to next Sunday, however, this may change depending on weather and track condition. We will keep you updated.
We know this sucks and we are doing our best to reschedule races etc so we don't lose these race days but unfortunately there is nothing we can do about the weather.
Cheers, IRC Committee.
Reminder to all that memberships for 2020 are now due. We will have membership forms at the Canteen on Sunday and moving forward. Membership rates will be unchanged from last year and will be as follows:
Family Package: $90.00
Non-Racing Member: $35.00
Anyone who does not have their membership completed by the conclusion of our race day being held on 8th March will only accumulate club championship points from when they do complete their membership. All others who complete their membership before then will accumulate points from this Sunday's first race meet.

There is some extremely close series points leading into this final round. We hope to see you all there for a great days racing and to see who will take home the top positions.
Last weekend some of the IRC Off Road members braved the 9 hour drive to Melbourne for Round 2 of the RCRA Australian Nationals.
With Ryan Lutz making the trip from America for this event, it was not one to miss!
Ryan held a workshop on the Friday night while the club supplied some delicious pizza for dinner. It was a great experience and one I am sure one many drivers will not forget.
The Melbourne Club and everyone involved did a brilliant job on the track. It was a good mix of high speed flowing sections while still having some very technical sections that would bite if you made a mistake.
Well done to IRC's Mitchell Scott for taking 1st place in the Sportsman Buggy class.
Also well done to IRC's Ryan Holbrow who unfortunately suffered some mechanical failures in his finals. Ryan was driving brilliantly in both his Junior and Sportsman final before mechanical failures took him out of the race.
All in all it was a brilliant weekend in Melbourne and everyone involved with the Melbourne club should be proud of the event.
