Default 2016 NSW EP10 Off-Road Club Series

Hi All

Welcome to the 2016 NSW EP10 Off Road Club series. We have made a number of changes from last year with the events returning to one day format and juniors now part of the main point score.
Event to be run under AARCMCC rules other than changes below.
Dates:

Club Series Round 1, Castle Hill 3rd of April due to Easter falling on the last weekend in March
Club Series Round 2, Maitland 29th of May
Club Series Round 3, Ryde 31st July
Club Series Round 4, St Ives 21st August

Note: AARCMCC NSW State Championships to be held at Ryde on 10-11 September

Classes:
Junior 2wd stock
2wd Stock
2wd Modified
4wd Stock
4wd Modified
Stadium Truck
2wd SCT

Tyres are open for all classes.
As with all major meets there is no cross entering between Stock and Mod classes with the exception of the Truck Classes.
Racing format:
Three qualifiers and three mains for A Finals, B and C finals will be aiming for 2 finals, but may be reduced to 1 if time becomes a factor. Drivers briefing at 7.15am, racing to commence at 730am.

Entry fees reduced to $20 for first class and $15 for second class
No trophies will be awarded at individual rounds (except for medallions for juniors) but end of year trophies will still be awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd in each class.

Maximum 2 entries per driver

Max heats

Junior stock = 1 heat
2wd stock = 3 heats
2wd mod = 2 heats
4wd stock = 2 heats
4wd mod = 3 heats
Stadium truck = 1 heat
2wd SCT = 1 heat

Note: An extra heat for one class may be added depending on demand.
Entry Process:
When entries are opened, each club will have a guaranteed 2 entries per heat for the first week, eg in 2wd stock each club has a guaranteed 6 entries available, the system wont let people enter once that limit has been reached. After 1 week, entries will be opened up for anyone to enter.

Points System: will stay the same as it was last year using the MotoGP method,
1st 25 points
2nd 20 points
3rd 16 points
4th 13 points
5th 11 points
6th 10 points
7th 9 points
8th 8 points
9th 7 points
10th 6 points
11th 5 points
12th 4 points
13th 3 points
14th 2 points
15th 1 point

Online entries all year are done at http://nswclubseries.com/ and as always we thank Thomas (Bugle) for all his work in helping each club with the entries and the paypal system and the website
Good luck in 2016
Cheers Jeff

Thomas has given the green light to opening entries. He has been doing a lot of work in the background moving to a more reliable server and setting up the new entry structure and as always we thank him for the time and effort he puts in to provide us all a seamless entry/payment system for all clubs

This is the link http://www.nswclubseries.com/online-entries/

Good luck and may the odds forever be in your favour

Cheers

Hi guys

Just a quick clarification on the entry system. When entries open each of the 4 host clubs is assigned 2 spots per heat of each class. Members of other clubs fall into “other” category which is also assigned 2 spots per heat per class. If your clubs allocation is full, the system will still take your entry and you will be placed on the reserve list

Once the initial period has finished (1 week after entries are opened) any “unclaimed” spots in the classes will be open to anyone and assigned on a first come first serve basis so if you’re already in the reserve queue you’re likely to be one of the first to be allocated a spot

Good luck and may the odds forever be your favour

Mikey

Default Quick announcement

Tonight we'll open up entries so any reserved club spots not yet used will be open for anyone. You can enter now to get on the reserve list or you can wait till tonight. We'll announce when we've opened it up

Cheers

The original rule was that you had to be members of an AARCMCC affiliated EP club to enter. I assume that is still the case.

Oversteer's members had to race for other clubs (mostly Ryde and Maitland) until Oversteer affiliated with AARCMCC (which they did mid CS season one year).

Section affiliation with AARCMCC without an insurance option is $100. That's going to be cheaper than both of you joining other clubs.

Other than paying the fee, all your club has to do is fill in the form on the website and return it.

Default Entries update

Hi dudes

Entries are coming in strongly so thought I'd do an update

Firstly both truck classes are full at the moment. You may still enter and end up on the reserve list in case a second heat of the class is opened up or in case someone else drops out of that class. We'll give you a full refund if you don't make it off the reserve list into a proper heat of course

Spaces left by class as of right now

2wd stock 12
2wd mod 3
4wd stock 5
4wd mod 15
SCT 0
Stadium truck 0
Junior 5

Remember we have the option to open 1 extra heat of a class should the need arise

I had a little run at the track today, the grip is up nice and high, a little sweep and it'll be great to race on!

We'll have a BBQ on race day and drinks available all day. We are working on some nice raffle prizes, so bring your cash and we'll hopefully have some announcements soon about what will be up for grabs

Cheers

Mikey
