Supp-Regs



Our Tafe Logic Event- Please read further update below
is now cancelled and will be rescheduled to a date to be advised.
Please read our Presidents message:

Hi everyone,

 

Thank you to everyone who has responded early on this request – we already have over 50% of the committee / leadership group agreeing to cancel the Wodonga event, so I am able to call it early.

 

The event is now cancelled and we will arrange another date with the venue. It is unfortunate that we have had to do this but we need to be responsible with our operations whilst also following government requirements. We have a committee meeting scheduled for next Wednesday at which we will make a decision on the April autocross event at Kyneton. Depending on the government requirements that are constantly evolving we may have to do the committee meeting as a teleconference – we will advise as things progress.

 

Thanks everyone for your understanding on this situation – we will have plenty of opportunity when this has settled down to catch up and satisfy our adrenalin starvation. In the mean-time perhaps the more computer literate ones amongst us could work out how we could have an “on lineclub championship – just a positive lateral thinking approach to keep everyone interested.

 

We will communicate regularly with our membership to keep everyone informed. I have also attached the letter from Motorsport Australia CEO Eugene Arocca about COVID19 and how it affects motorsport for your information. It has useful links to the Government advice websites and the Australian Institute of Sport advice.

 

Be sensible, safe, practice good personal hygiene and social separation requirements when out in public.

 

Regards,

 

Wes Wilkinson

Subject: Wodonga Tafe Logic Track event / COVID19 Corona Virus

 

Hi everyone,

 

I have been asked to make a difficult decision today, one which I would not do prior to consulting with the committee, in relation to the Wodonga event. Whilst we may comply with all the government requirements and can achieve social distancing requirements for the event due to its nature and outdoor location, it has become apparent that we may not be able to run the event through another stakeholder. It is predicted that TAFE will close the site re: COVID19, before the end of the week however this is not certain. The question is whether we wait until this occurs or whether we proceed with the event hoping it is not cancelled.

 

My questions of all committee members are:

 

  1. Do we cancel the event now  YES or NO
  2. Do we wait to see if we are still able to run it in the hope that we can keep the event on? YES or NO

 

Either way it will have a cost but the venue has promised a re-booking without  penalty.

 

Please ensure that you reply by email prior to mid-day on 18 March 2020 at which time I will call the result and make the appropriate arrangements.

 

Thanks for your understanding in this challenging period.

Regards,

Hi everyone,

 

Great news – we can at least run the Wodonga Tafe Logic event this coming weekend – we were waiting for the advice and direction from Motorsport Australia prior to communicating with you, in light of the decision to cancel the Australian Grand Prix.  Please read the letter below carefully and ensure that you comply with it in every detail if you are attending the event.

 

I will be attending and competing along with my family so I hope to see you there for our first event of the year.

 

Please contact me if you have any questions.

A letter from the CEO, Eugene Arocca – 16 March, 2020

 

I would like to take the opportunity to write to you to provide an update on COVID-19 and its impact on motorsport more broadly.
 
As you would no doubt be aware, the situation is constantly changing and evolving and an internal working group at Motorsport Australia is regularly meeting to monitor the situation. We plan to send out regular updates to you, our members, as necessary to provide any important information.
 
While some larger events have been cancelled or postponed, at this stage, I can confirm that a number of Motorsport Australia sanctioned events will continue with our support, in line with any government restrictions and also with suitable precautions in place.
 
Some of these precautions are expected to include, but will not be limited to:

  • Encouraging social distancing (standing 1.5m away from others)
  • Providing drivers’ and officials’ briefings electronically
  • Communicating to participants at all levels that if they are unwell, they must stay away from the venue
  • The provision of hand sanitisers and hand washing facilities at events

In times like these, it is important that we can enjoy our sport in a safe and practical way, while ensuring good hygiene and social distancing practices are maintained. We will also contact our clubs, event organisers and promoters with key information that will help protect those participating in events in the coming weeks and months.
 
Motorsport Australia encourages all participants, whether officials, competitors, licence holders and event organisers to remain extremely vigilant and practice good hygiene, including the use of hand sanitiser.
 
Some helpful resources include the Department of Health’s COVID-19 site, which can be accessed by clicking here.
 
The Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) has also prepared some informative content for those involved in sport, which can be found by clicking here.
 
If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via our membership hotline or via replying to this email.
 
Regards,
Eugene Arocca
Motorsport Australia CEO

Next Event 

Good Evening

It is with much regret that we advise that the Broadford track which has been undergoing resurfacing and will not be ready for our event on Sunday 19th January 2020 this has caused a Force majeure for the event, 

HOWEVER;

We have however been offered to run the event on Sunday 26th January 2020 which is the Sunday of the Australia Day weekend.  If you are willing and able to run on the 26th January 2020 and have already entered your entry will stand as it is, if this is not suitable to you or you have any objection with this change of date of the event please reply to this email immediately.  ssmaltby@bigpond.com

Broadford Motor Cycle Complex have also offered alternative dates mid-year if this is what is the majority of competitors want. 

We need your answer if unfavourable immediately so that we as a committee can make the best decision based on our members/competitors feedback.  We need YOUR feedback if you are unable to attend on the 26th January 2020.   We will have to consult with Motorsport Australia (CAMS) any changes to the regulations.  Further regs will need to be issued. 

We are still holding our quick meeting at the KCC Clubrooms on this coming Sunday (Jan 12) at 4pm to go over the running and procedures of the event if we run on 26th January 2020.

We sincerely apologise as do the Broadford Motorcycle Complex for the short notice of change.

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,
