URGENT - BROADFORD ROUND 7 SUNDAY 19th JANUARY POSTPONED TO SUNDAY 5TH JULY 2020

NEWSFLASH 
ROUND 7 Broadford track bitumen event has been postponed until Sunday 5th July 2020.  It will still be known as 
ROUND 7 of the 2019/2020 series.
NEW SUPPLEMENTARY REGULATIONS WILL BE ISSUED FOR THIS EVENT AT A LATER DATE.
Thank you for your understanding. Members that have pre paid for this event can either be refunded or leave their payment as pre paid for July 5th.
We do apologise for any inconvenience.

Good Evening

A meeting was held today 4pm at KCC Clubrooms to discuss first and foremost Round 7 Broadford Track event that has been cancelled by the Broadford Motorcycle Complex on the 19th January, 2020 BMC offered us various dates being Sunday 26th January 2020 which was a week later but falling in the middle of the Australia Day Long weekend.  We as a group of members 17 in attendance, weighed up the pros and cons of the options we were given.  Due to the fact that quite a number of members who had already entered had other commitments for the Australia Day weekend it would have been financially unviable, also fairness to all members running in the Series, fire conditions in all our areas etc made the decision to postpone our Round 7 of the 2019/2020 series until  Sunday  5th July 2020 a pretty easy one.  There were 4 dates on offer and it was worked through by a vote of members until we came up with a suitable date. By running the 5th July at the Broadford track it will not interfere with our July 19th  round of Autocross in the 2020/2021 Series.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience to members this has caused but it was a force majeure with the track resurfacing not able to be finished per BMC schedule when we booked the track.  BMC have been very reasonable in working with us to accommodate dates etc for our event.

 

There will be a new set of Supplementary Regulations issued for the 5th of July event which will still be run as Round 7 of the 2019/2020 series.  It was very informative and lots of discussion bantered around in how we will run the event in July.

 

Paul Lincoln has advised that there is a Winton Fun Day running on the Aust Day Weekend and if you are still looking at running on the black stuff.  Paul will give me the details shortly and they will be on the website if you are interested.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

Our AGM and General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 22nd January,  2020 at the Kyneton Bowling Club.  A table has been booked in the bistro from 6pm for those wanting to catch a meal with club members and committee prior to the AGM at 7pm, A general meeting will be held at the conclusion of the AGM.

Frontal Head Restraints

Hi everyone,

 

Great news on the event front with a clarification of the FHR regulations from Motorsport Australia (CAMS) – meaning that if you are running a road registered or unregistered car that is not log booked then you do not need FHR. I am pleased that we finally got this information from Motorsport Australia and hopefully this means that if you have been holding back putting in an entry, you can now enter either Broadford or Wodonga. If you have a log booked car however you have to have FHR unless you change your log book to Category 7 Speed (only) which is exempt.  Scrutineers please familiarise yourselves with the information below.

 

Call me if you have any questions.

 

Regards,

 

Wes Wilkinson
