Default Southern Highlands NSW 1st Race Meet - 12 March 2017



Hi All,

We are now promoting our first ever race meet! EP 1/10th Buggies and Trucks only.

Classes will be 2wd and 4wd Stock/Mod and Trucks (Stadium or SCT) and a Rookie/Novice for first timers beginners.

Enter on the day.

Being our first meeting, the aim is to have a fun day and gauge interest.

Any questions ask away, except "can we bring nitro or petrol?" answer is NO due to Council restrictions of use.

We are currently negotiating possible prizes on the day, likely a via raffle. More info to come soon!

Cheers

Track is set up on temporary basis on day of meet. We'll be cutting the grass short Saturday afternoon and setting up the track early on Sunday.

Will be grass track (cut short) with wooden jumps. We'll be using ag-pipe to mark out the track.

Default 1st Meeting this SUNDAY

THIS SUNDAY 12th March 10am to 2pm
Yerrinbool Soccer Fields - Government Road - Yerrinbool.
More info in attached pics.
Electric 1/10th scale buggies and trucks only race day.
BIG REMINDER that this Sunday is our first official race day ever! All preparations are going well. In regards to the weather, unless it is pouring rain on Sunday morning we are going ahead! The site drains well and with a little sun on Saturday and Sunday morning the surface (low cut grass) should hold up well!
We'll be there Saturday afternoon preparing the track area and from around 8am Sunday building the track ready for Racing at 10am. Track should be open around 9am for some practice laps.
Also special thanks to Campbelltown Hobbies who are providing gift vouchers for the event! Be in it for your chance to win one!

The meeting went very well.

All club members where present with the addition of some new comers, a strong Juniors class supported by 2WD Stock & 4WD Mod. We ran four rounds (2 Heats & 2 Finals). Was a good family freindly day out.

Track prep was relatively easy and it was surprisingly good running on grass.

Now over to planning our meeting for next month, where we will do our best not to clash with any Sydney club events, in the hope to have some increasing attendance.

Local newspaper providing good support!

We should build on attendance as well. Many a past RC runner turning up for look see to see if they should dust of their cars and a few new comers too!

Tentative date for April is Sunday 23rd - To be confirmed

WE were able to give away all of the Campbelltown Hobbies gift vouchers.

Dan Maher even lent his car to an interested junior for a race!
