A chronological history of the track and milestones that made it what it is today, including images and stories about the people that made it happen.

A "Year wall" of committee members who put their hand up!

A listing of all QRCCRA members who have achieved outstanding results to add to a members hall of fame.

A closeup look at the awesome cars we drive for the Parent Cars Section.

AND MOST OF ALL...

I'd like permission from TJK to create Pop's Corner, for those who knew him, he is still in the hearts and minds of many of us, a gentleman and the grandfather of our beloved RC club, lest we forget.

PS: I can smell bitumen... Oh dear, that might be me burning the midnight oil!

And a link to this years championship points. (and if possible previous years points).

Thought id get in before Steve.

I fly RC planes regularly with a guy who I believe was instrumental in securing the EPR land from the council, sourcing the old lights, Arranged Trainee Electrical Apprentices to wire them up, obtaining bitumen, Council toilets etc.
Keith Berry.
Before that they were pushed from carpark to carpark to race.

I'm sure he should get a mention.
I believe Trev was on the committee with him. Was that the 70's or 80's.

Hey El Nitro

I know Keith B; we used to race off-road back in the 70's.

GENERAL TALKS,

Yeah.

Once I started racing at EPR he told me he used to race cars and buggies. His son raced too.
He flys RC planes now at SAAMBR (Griffin) regularly.

I told him I was racing on Friday night, so he came to EPR last year one Friday night to catch up with Trev.

Ill be seeing him tomorrow. Sorry don't know who you are though.

General Talks = the infamous Ken Sweeny. He got the nickname " the General " when we used to run gas tourers many years ago. When it was pull start motors and HPI Rubber tires. That class taught you how to set up and drive the cars. Now GT uses foam tires I think it's lost it's shine a bit. But that's my personal opinion only. So don't get upset GT drivers.

Can anyone tell me, maybe Andrew Shaps is the man for this question. You mentioned the Qld Gas Tourer Titles event last Friday night at the drivers briefing. Where can I get an entry form for this event. Might as well get an entry in for the support class ( Mighty SSF ) early so I can lock the day in on the calendar.

Clearly your forecaster is much better than the BoM Trev. I think Finchy is referring to the title event on 17th and 18th of May.
