STOP PRESS! 2013 Race Day Plan

 I am pleased to announce that we can finally reveal our Race Plan for 2013 so please check the Event Calendar for the first Race Day on the 24th March and have a read of the information there as nearly everything has changed and in some cases quite a deal.

I am sure once you apply the classes to the bike or bikes you wish to ride you will see that you will get a minimum of 6 rides on one bike plus of course your warm up or sighting lap. Remember the focus on the day is to get through the whole programme which, if fully subscribed, will account for some 94 races!

We have kept our race entry fees to pretty much what you paid last year remembering that riders do not have to pay coming through the gate any more as it has been absorbed by the club in the way of additional track hire fees

One other thing not mentioned in the blurb on the Race Day page is that we will be paying our friendly people from the Scouts organisation (who have served us well at the canteen in 2012) to be 3 of our corner marshalls for each of our events.

This will elevate the always dreaded task of trying to get flaggies at our events but it does not take away the need to have the following,

  • Last lap and chequered flag person
  • Lap scorers as we are not using transponders this year
  • Starter
  • Start gate personnel
  • Race order announcer or race usher as i call it.
  • Start gate flaggie

Trying to get people to do these jobs is always a problem for any club but without people to do these jobs we just cannot race, so hopefully people out there can bring someone with them or, perhaps if they're not riding, lend a hand themselves.

What would be a great benefit, is if someone, who knows prior, that they (or a friend they know) can help out on the day would let us know upfront. Maybe you (or your mate) has a particular job eg. Chequered Flag that you would like to do …. just nominate to do that job and its yours. Another good job (if you can call any job good) is Starter!

You will see from the Event Calender that we have 4 dates this year plus the Charity Weekend. The first 3 dates being the 3 Race Round of the series and the 4th date a rain-off date should we have the need for it.

Membership Renewal

A reminder is that all club memberships are due for those that have not already renewed for 2013

Training Day

I need to also ask for expressions of interest for the proposed Training Day on the 23rd of March. This is a full day event which will cater for juniors, nippers seniors and side cars if we have the numbers to hold it. It is also the day before our 1st race meet the 24th of March so it may come in handy for some folk.

Please take the time to read the Race Plan for 2013 carefully and feel free to email any questions/criticisms/praise you may have.

LATE NEWS FLASH!

 Re the Sydney Dirt tTrack series, entry forms will be sent out soon and there will be provision to enter for the 3 rounds upfront for those die hards who know they will want to ride all 3 rounds and get there spots secured on the grid.

 One thing not mentioned was that all heats and finals will be 3.5 laps

 So far i have had a great response to the new format with one member boasting that with 2 bikes he can get 8 rides!

 But, of course, change doesn’t always suit everyone and I have 2 classes which have been combined at present due to previous low numbers being the pre 75 125 and pre 70 class which is now combined and has affected a couple of members. So if there are enough guys/girls out there who wish to ride these classes I need to hear from at least 6 of you from each discipline before I can really change anything.

 

Hoping everyone has had a great start to the year !

Regards

Notice Board

ON ANY SUNDAY Dirt Track Racing

5th JULY - CANCELLED

It is with much frustration that I at the 11th hour today was informed by MNSW that our event set down for this Sunday cannot go ahead as the track will now not be licensed for this date.

There is a free date at Nepean next Sunday which is a possibility but after consultation with the appropriate authorities it would not be feasible to announce this as the replacement date until at least Tuesday next next.
A decision will be made Tuesday evening as to wether or not we are likely to be able to run on Sunday 12 July

So sorry for this to have to happen but it was totally beyond my control and every effort was made to get this over the line.

I will update everyone next Tuesday night 7th July on what is likely to happen looking forward

Cheers
