OUR ENTRY TO CLUB MOTORSPORT
The July 19th meeting introduced plans for Motorsport this year and 2018 - we have a unique opportunity in 2017 to showcase the club as well as compete in a low risk CAMS sanctioned event.
Modern Regularity at Mallala is organised by Austin 7 Club /TTM ( www.tracktimemotorsport.com.au ) and usually 8 rounds are held each year with heats for A,B & C categories. The entry fee is $140 each round.
➢ Our club has been invited to the September 10th meeting for a session of parade laps free of charge and none of the usual requirements for the car or apparel, however a disclaimer needs to be signed on the day. The session would be run as a club group and allow drivers to experience the track layout. Car owners/drivers can mix freely with competitors in the paddock and everyone is very willing to answer questions and be supportive.
➢ At the next meeting on October 29th our club will be given all the Group C sessions exclusively if a minimum grid is guaranteed. First a practice session of 12 minutes ( about 5 laps ) then five heats averaging 6 laps spread over the day. The full CAMS / Organiser regulations apply for competitors. Once again experienced drivers and officials around the paddock will help with what, where and when.
The indicative cost for competing would be $600 and this includes a 12 month L2S licence and initial once only costs. NOTE : You can only be issued a L2S licence by CAMS if you are a member of an affiliated car club. Applications to CAMS online.
We have to have your October 29th entry cost of $140 by time of our next meeting on 16th August latest - we will have a further discussion about motorsport at this meeting.
