Hello and welcome to Trackside for the month of August.
Results for Round 2 on 21st June were as follows:
We were able to hold over my article until after Round 3 was run on Sunday 19th July.
We had 12 Alfa Club members competing on the day and the results are as follows:
It was a freezing cold morning with frozen grass around the paddock area to show just how cold Mallala mornings can be. However, it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day with fabulous track conditions and several of us achieving new personal best times.
Plaques for winners of Round 3 will be handed out at the August general meeting.
The MSCA requires 82 entries to break even and as you may have realised over the past two years numbers have been declining. Therefore, effective Round 4,announced at round 2 Drivers briefing, on the 16th August, 2015, MSCA entry fees have gone up to $95.00 for members and $115.00 for non MSCA members. This is still extremely cheap compared to any other Club here and our interstate counterparts.
