February 17th Nightmasters

So the first race day has been done and dusted.
A very late finish for all competitors with the last race finishing after 10:15.

Over three races Andrew and Brad had a ding dong battle with time differences of around 0.3/0.4 per lap.

Andrew Stevens came out on top of this one with Brad Cuss overall second. Paul Kluck came in 3rd for the event. Marty Willard in the escort took out under 2litre with Kelvin Sharp bringing the BMW Honda out for the race meet for 2nd.

 See the highlights video below!

Well done all. Next race meeting is on March 17th Nightmasters!

We now have all our sponsor partner stickers printed and if you are missing any please let Craig Maloney know. There will be spares at the next race meet.

Please ensure that minor sponsor stickers are placed from the back of the front door to the front of the car. If there is no room for them to fit there then the front bumper area is acceptable.

McDonalds, our major sticker should be as close to the racing number on your door as possible on both sides of the car.

PRE-SEASON INSPECTIONS


(From WASCC)
WASCC received advice from CAMS that it could not continue with a system of pre-season inspections if it was going to mandate these within regulations. This was promulgated through the Competition and Events Committee.

WASCC circuit racing events always have and will continue to use the CAMS Audit system, where your car receives a CAMS Audit every 4 meetings or once every 12 months.

The WASCC Mandatory Pre Season Inspection was a separate system on top of the CAMS Audit.
This year CAMS head office has instructed WASCC to drop our Mandatory Pre Season Inspection for 2 main reasons.

Firstly’ that a mandatory club inspection outside of the CAMS Audit is in conflict of NCRs for CAMS race meetings. Secondly, as WASCC ran its own inspection system, we may have been liable should something happen to a competitor due to a mechanical problem that our system could/should have picked up.

Please Find a CAMS Audit Check sheet HERE. It’s really good check sheet to ensure your car is in top safe working order. This is the same audit sheet the CAMS Scrutineers use to check your car at race meetings.

Every Class should nominate an Eligibility officer, who should hold a scrutineer licence, and assist with the Scrutineers at race meetings.

Race Category Structure for 2018


Following on from the CDC meeting held at CAMS on 23rd August we would like to announce the following.

The “WAGT” name used in reference to the combined grids of Street Cars and Sports Sedans and Sports Cars will be disbanded for the 2018 season.

We will still run in the same races, however Street Cars will have a separate grid from the Sports Sedans and Sports Cars as per the Torque Trophy Event in July was run. As to starting order for the classes this is to be confirmed.

We will be collecting car and driver profiles to collate and give to the commentary team to ensure the Street Cars Category can continue to grow and shared within the motorsport community.

Please send your car specs and driver info along with an image to streetcarswa@gmail.com

A-Frames for Race Garages

 


We have secured an awesome deal with Word Of Mouth Signs to produce
A-frame signs at a special member price. These signs will be the metal
A-frame with a replaceable corflute sign of your cars specifications and driver information. 

 

These will be at a member cost of $55.00 which has been subsidised by the association as well.

 



We would like to endeavour to keep these signs universal to the category with our logos etc on them, so if you are interested in ordering please contact your category Representative Craig to organise the graphic design for the order.

We encourage all members to have one of these signs in order to promote our cars at the garages and draw attention to the builds, whilst further promoting the category.
