Newsflash 8/4/2019


The AGM was held at Wakefield over the course of the HSRCA event last weekend and the AFJA Committee remains unchanged.  I will publish the minutes in a separate newsflash in a week or so. 

There was some detailed discussion on how we can improve our numbers and some ideas were put forward.  One of the suggestions was to reduce the championship rounds from the 8 we have this year to 4 or 5 next year, with the aim being to encourage greater participation because of fewer events. 

It was also suggested to have a 3 year cycle with the main events being Wakefield Park, Winton Short, Mallala and Morgan Park, with a big “away” event on the third year, such as Baskerville, WA or NZ.  Your thoughts on these ideas would be appreciated. 

A motion was moved and carried at the AGM to reduce membership fees from $50 to $25 to encourage greater participation and those members that have already paid $50 will not have to pay for 2020.  So, if you haven’t already paid your fees (and not many have) please treat this as a reminder to do so.  Let me know if you need details on how to pay.

As you can see from the results for the first 2 rounds so far this year, Max Pegram is off to a flyer with the Gemini, scoring well at both events.  Well done Max.  Unfortunately, our numbers are not helped by misadventure, with my Rennmax being sidelined until June after the shunt at Phillip Island, Kim Shearn suffered engine damage in NZ during February and Rob Buckley discovered some cracks in his chassis during the Wakefield meeting which will necessitate a major rebuild.  But that’s life!
