Hi all, The Phillip Island Classic Festival of Motorsport date was announced yesterday. The meeting is on - 8-9-10th March 2019, so get planning and get your accommodation for a great weekend of motorsport.
Well our last General Club meeting in June was a cracker. With guests from HQs and the HRR joining us for our presentation from The Bend we had 40 attendees. A really great informative presentation from Paul Trengove ensured everyone went away very enlightened about the exciting things happening at The Bend.
Congratulations to the following members who after having a run at the Bend over the weekend are now LAP RECORD HOLDERS on the 4.95k International Circuit. NCB Rob Smith with a 2.24.30 Class NCC Rory ONeill on the 4.95k International Circuit. Class NCE Josh Axford with a 2.16.82 No doubt these records will stand for a while on that circuit as it’s not the preferred circuit for our category. Well done guys.
Today it was brought to our attention that the June race meeting on 9th and 10th of June at Tailem Bend has been reduced to a one day meeting and no guarantee of a practice day. We understand some local competitors will still choose to run on Sat 9th still as a One day event. We apologise for this change. Now on a brighter note we need to focus on the October dates of 20th and 21st which is still listed as [...]
