MOTORKHANA/AUTOCROSS - RND 4 - scheduled for 15 Oct
Unfortunately this event at the TECT All Terrain Park and the MBOP Autocross Track is also a victim of the weather. We have been unable to get the track graded and rolled due to the rain that has been falling for the last month. There needs to be three fine days in a row before the grader can get on the track, and as you know, this hasn't happened in the last month and a half. So unfortunately this event will have to be postponed until we can get the track groomed. We'll let you know as soon as we can of a new date.
The motorkhana/autocross at Baypark that was postponed has been rescheduled for Sunday 30 October. So fingers crossed that by then the damn weather has made up it's mind to actually be summer! We hope to see you there.
DAY NIGHT SPRINT - ROUND 2
Well finally a break in the weather and a good field of cars turned out for the second round of the PF Automotive Day Night Sprint Championship. 32 cars started the daylight runs and even though conditions were a bit slippery, some good times were being put up. There was a lot of very keen competition throughout the field, with the big guns slugging it out at the top. We were pleased to have two cars from way out of town at the event - one all the way from Wellington and another from Taranaki. Our thanks to Geoff Warren and Troy Harland for their support of our event.
Thanks also to our great bunch of helpers who made the day possible. Mike and David shared the COC duties inbetween their driving stints, Dianne helped with doco and then ran the start line, ably assisted by Fiona Rau and Andrew Webb. Shane Tofts towed up the big light standard, kindly donated by Tauranga Hire for the event once again, and then he acted as Sweeper, cleaning up the tyres and cones that some competitors just couldn't resist moving! And on marshall duties we had Chris Hawkes, Bill Richardson, Lorraine Williams, Brent Hills, and helping out at night after driving in the daylight runs were Derek Cecil and David Hearn. And a hugh thank you to JP and Kristi Van Der Meys (ably assisted by Mike Follows) who put on their wonderful Mr Smoke BBQ for us, even though they were both also competing. Top effort by all the team. Many thanks to all.
Results of both this event and the Championship have been posted.
