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.


 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 !

Hi to all Members

Well another year is almost done so I would like to convey my best wishes to everyone that has been a part of what we do here at CPMCC

Like every year it has had its ups and downs due to the weather and for this particular passing year some relicencing issues but as an over all I am sure we can put it down as another good year !

2016 will run under the banner of Dirt Dash

I have a few new things in mind to make the 2016 year different and more interesting with the addition of a new class which should see some bikes cutting laps around nepean that may have never been there before along with a race for fun theme and not necessary for a trophy.

There may also be some variety in the track config which may also be great for the spectators, so stay tuned in the early months of 2016 for further details.

2016 DATES to plan for @ Nepean
MAY 29
JUNE 25, 26 King of Nepean
AUG 20 21 Classic charity

Sincerest Wishes to everyone for a safe and happy Christmas and New Year !
