A few notes regarding SMA activates this weekend:

Track open will be open for practice at about 10am

At about 12.30p we would like to run 2 x rounds of heat racing, transponders will not be in use, cars will be scored via flags.

Race fees are as follows: this fee is practice on the track aswell. in future we will run full 3 heat and finals events.

$5.00 members
$10.00 non members

Membership:

1yr: $25.00 for SMA membership / and Jets Sports Club member ship if over 18yrs old

New Memberships signed up before the end of October '04 will expire 31st December 2005.

Future plans:

- Timing system: The club is in a position to purchase a timing system and we have decided to use the new "Ko Propo ARC System Type 3", the catch is we have wait for dispatch & delivery. This is a new system and we may have to wait a while.

- We are assessing our drivers stand requirements and over the next few weeks will be working out the best way to produce a workable solution.

Default Transponders

Future plans:

- Timing system: The club is in a position to purchase a timing system and we have decided to use the new "Ko Propo ARC System Type 3", the catch is we have wait for dispatch & delivery. This is a new system and we may have to wait a while.

Would this system also work with personal transponders.

Big Thanks to SMA.

yesterday was a good first meet,
the new track can only be improved on design wise.
Yesterdays track was good, if not a little challenging.

I have some decent photos from the Nitro & Electric finals if you want some more........

Paul.
