i would think that the maitland club would run it at their tour event and i understand what you are saying but i was hoping that if they got the interest they might run it as say a replacement for 540??

is there going to be a stock truck class??
At club level we dont run a stock truck class, and on the tour I know that we haven't given stock truck a race at this stage.
If the club members want to run a class, they need to have 3 or more runners get the class a run at club meets.

The Off Road tour is being run under AARCMCC classes, which stock truck is not reconised. I know that this class is well support by a lot clubs out there, but no club has actually put pen to paper so to speak to have this class reconised by AARCMCC.

While you have a good following in Maitland of stock truck, we were struggling for numbers a couple of years ago, Thus we just ran what ever classes that turned up. Stock truck has been one of those classes that no has wanted to run in numbers. That doesn't mean that it will never happen.

I could see painy now driving around the track with a stock truck (hahaha in my dreams )

Good pics trev TY

Andrew, if you want to help out with the web site, it would be appreciated as my imagination isn't that great for colours and flash impressions on web sites.

Ah tomorrows the day (yippeeee) new ISP

Painy i think maitland is fantastic too, but the point i was making is that nats are more diverse than state and clubs are the foundation level, this makes for a smaller cross section "circle" of drivers. The point being made to Grahame you'll find is that stock level racing is close racing and dollars equals an edge while mod is good old throttle control

We race on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month.

Except the 28th is the Pro Am.

So I'm guessing the next club day is the 11th of April.

I'm guessing that you would have to run your car in Novice.

Not sure on the tyres for your car.
