Trackside March 2015

Hello and welcome to Trackside for March 2015.

We have just had the MSCA Trophy presentation at Mt. Barker oval on Sunday 15th February. even though the weather sounded like it was going to be extremely hot, clouds rolled in with a nice breeze, plenty of large shady trees and club marquees made for quite a tolerable conditions.

This, combined with a good turnout of 15 Alfas in our display made for a good day.

The only awards going to AROCA members was Ian Crouch winning category H and also Sprint Champion of the Year. Well done Ian.

Our first round for the year is Sunday 22nd March. Please note that you will need to present an Entrant Declaration for 2015 to score any points if you haven’t already done so. I have now found out that we are rostered to provide flag marshalls for the day. Anyone willing to attend and help out will be given the best trackside viewing spots, lunch and drinks and some information and instruction on what is required when waiving a flag and communicating with the tower.

All visitors and competitors are welcome to join the group of us with trailers that park behind the toilet block at the paddock entrance. We endeavour to have marquees set up and provide an opportunity for people to socialise during the day, especially lunch time.

The Historic Race weekend which was formerly held at Easter, will now be held on the Anzac Weekend with an Anzac commemoration service in the morning, military vehicle display and fly over and competition commencing in the afternoon, continuing into the evening on Saturday.

Sunday will start at around 9.30/10.00am and conclude at 4.00pm followed by trophy presentations.

Full details and entry forms available from the Sporting Car Club website.

A Driver Training Day has been scheduled for Saturday 30th May at Mallala with AROCA organising and running the event as we normally do. I will be seeking entries and assistance from all the gang that normally help out as well as anyone who wants to be involved.

Please spread the word to try to make this a successful day. It is a great thing for young and inexperienced drivers to improve their skills and knowledge of vehicle control and function.

Full details and entries to follow shortly.

See your backside trackside.
