Default MINI NATS 2018 (Part of the Bendigo Classic) Oct 5-7.

Last years 'Mini Reunion' at the Bendigo Classic was a massive success, way bigger than we ever hoped it might be. And as such, we just HAVE to do it again this year.
So, given that everyone called it that last year anyway, we've now offically called it MINI NATS for this year.
It'll be the same deal as last year, run as part of the Bendigo Classic and it should be 150% awesome!
Lock in your holidays now people!
Classes will be as per last year Mini, and 4WD Mini

Classes and more details to come , "warning" classes will be capped again , online entries with paypal will be released with in plenty of time .. if you intend entering be ready

At this stage Qualifying will be completed Saturday night under lights ... With Finals only on the Sunday to avoid the late finish of last year, to enable guys traveling t be on the road a reasonable time, along with our lighting, COATES Hire Bendigo have indicated assisting the club with more lighting

SPECIAL MINI NATS ANNOUNCEMENT

After some consultation with the event sponsor Hearns Hobbies, as well as some careful deliberation ourselves, we have made the decision to institute a control tire for this years Mini Nats.
This is for Mini Nats only and is not in any way related to the possible overall control tire discussion mentioned earlier this year.
The main criteria we needed to meet was ready identification of the control tire which is difficult as most mini tires look the same and are impossible to pick one from another.
As such, we have opted to go with the same tire set as specified for the 2012 Mini Nats at Dandenong – Sweep 40’s and 25’s.
No doubt there will be people unhappy with our choice and/or even the fact that there is a control tire. We are unfortunately damned if we do, and damned if don’t in this situation. It's not possible to please everybody.
However, we felt this offered the fairest possible solution for all, and particularly for people coming from other states not wanting to lug large amounts of tires to Vic.
By making the announcement some 7 months prior to the event, it gives everyone more than adequate time to work on their setups to find something that works for their cars with this tire combo.
At this stage the intent is to limit drivers to a max of 1 set (of 4) of each compound for the event.

That is fine as long as this 1 set of each doesnt get changed to additional! as it did in Dandenong Nats, due to people chewing through their allocated tires prior to finals making it unfair to those that looked after their sets accordingly.
