Definitely something to think about and discuss..
Considering that not all EP off-road racers race on carpet,,
there is a few members in each club that race carpet regularly,
A club shield scenario might be the best idea for RCarena.

Entered, currently Southern Highlands is dominating Juniors!

I've emailed Mikey about my entry. 4wd Stock must not like Tamiyas!

Good to see some junior entries David..
Remember that all junior entries must have a father or
older brother,etc to help them Marshall..

A suggestion for Junior marshalling in finals: If you put the Junior class as the last of the A finals in the round then they will be marshalling 2WD Stock B, and 2WD Stock C Finals. That should reduce any stress the organisers might have about inexperienced marshals affecting the most important races.

Similarly, in heats run the lower pre-graded heats first: C, B, A. Juniors will then be marshalling the C heat.

It will be me! Youngest is Isaac at 7 years, Amelia 10, Phoebe 12.

Phoebe's been to a couple of events and 'should be' fine. I'll help Amelia and Isaac during the race, so I'll need to have them on close corners.

I think Dan's idea is good. Jnrs marshalling A's finals could prove problematic especially mod. I'm pretty sure David Glynn will also be entering, so I'll see if he can help out as well. Phoebe will be driving one of his cars!

Nevertheless they might be quicker than some 'seniors'

It seems like since truck went to mod now,,
No one is interested anymore,,
That's what I'm hearing anyway..we should have left it alone,
And only run mod truck at states and nationals..

It was huge last year,due to the 10.5 motor,,
Stock drivers felt comfortable,and mod drivers liked the truck being easier to drive..

That's the word on the street!!!.

Some of us gentlemen will be running 10.5. It is fast enough for me.

Just need to ensure I can get there before I enter.
