Im also aware the current date clashes with the Niro-X finals - doesnt affect me, but how about you guys????

Do people still race Niro, sorry Nitro,?

Smack it!

is there any interest from nsw at all? i know there is in vic, but they are the guys i race with. Is anybody from nsw keen to get a team together or is the lack of organisation / talent going to see this event dropped this year.

i would be very surprised if the nsw boys dont get a team together. i think it would be a good idea if we some how got a neutral referee for this years meeting.

Any follow ups on this Ray?

I move for four Man teams this year, its been a battle to fill classes in the past.

SCT, as a demo, next to/instead of 540?

NSW to help run/entirely run the PC?

Neutral referees Cantona?

No major news Neil - it seems that there is interest but I think NSW needs to appoint a team captain and

I think the event needs:
- clear rules about starting orders, point systems etc
- a rotation system for running the computer system
- a referee

Since there have been lots of accusations of biased marshalling (from both sides) over the years, perhaps we could follow the lead of the 24hr teams race in the UK where you only marshall your own team cars. If necessary, marshalls can stay out for 2 races with an NSW and Vic marshall at each point. I think that is a much fairer way for a team race.

Don't forget the rotation system for the venue either.

i thought the idea of having it at wodonga was because it is on the border, where do you propose we rotate between? canbera and wodonga?

which is great if you live in some brokendown town on the NSW side of the border but most of us live in sydney and its a solid drive down. You guys have a couple of hours to drive from melbourne.

yeah canberra one year and wodonga the next would be excellent. hell I would like to see us change it up and just nominate a VIC club one year and a NSW club the other
