The Newcastle Club is going to support junior entry by handing out like new XPRESS tyres for each junior to race on for free. Entry will also be free for juniors.
C'mon kids come and have some fun without emptying your parents pockets!

Junior elegibility will be at the discretion of event organisers.

All you racers out there!
The question has been asked if we would consider running 4wd mini on the program at the GP
Two questions I have:
  1. How many would be keen to run 4wd mini?
  2. Those who would run 4wd mini would it be at the expense of a TC class that you have entered or are going to enter.
Love to know your thoughts!

I'd be keen to run as an additional class, but need to clarify what the motor rules are. SMA were running 13.5 XRS motors, and in Victoria they were running mini power systems.

Or do we allow either system to be used?

Nah sorry Steve, my mistake. I'll need to contact Lee and let him know so he can decide which class.
