Old Coach Road Tarmac Sprint

Sunday 19 Oct started out wet and miserable but our hardy bunch of organisers an helpers turned out to set up and the even hardier bunch of competitors also turned up ready to race in the less than ideal conditions.  However the day fined up and even though there were the usual number of incidents (no power pole this year though!) most people had a good time, with half the event in rain and half in lovely sunshine.

Thanks very much to our helpers - Steve Grant and Shane Ward on the start line, our marshalls Tex Wright, Ray Challender, Colin Tofts (who got to see all the action!) and the Cook family - Julie, Angus and Briearnah - who got to see the antics at the turnaround, Tim Robinson and Shane Tofts who were our scrutineers and of course JP and Kristie who provided the lunches for our marshalls and competitors.  Thanks also Bill Richardson who hung around all day being our steward.

Thanks also to all you competitors who came out to play and commiserations to those who had problems.  Congratulations to GAry Bodley from Hamilton who took the day from Phil Jones.  These two had a great battle all day, but it was Gary who prevailed in the end.  Well done too to our class winners, with Chris Hawkes taking out the RWD class and Gary and Phil who won FWD and 4WD respectively.

REMEMBER!

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL TIME
Yes, it's that time of year again and if you haven't renewed you'd better get on to it.

Remember, you can't compete without a current car club membership.

Keep an eye out too for our Membership Survey, which will be coming your way soon.  We very much want to know what you think, and there's a prize draw as well!  So keep an eye out for that.



And do check out the regs page regularly - we will put up what information we get about other Club's events as we receive it.
