Newsflash 14/3/2021


The AGM for the AFJA was held over a relaxing BBQ at Phillip Island last weekend and I am pleased to say that we had a quorum and we also elected a new President for 2021 (insert a pretend drum roll just here).

Congratulations to Bill Hemming for picking up the baton after 5 sterling years of effort from Kim Shearn. The remainder of the committee positions are unchanged from last year with Robyn Bryen as Treasurer and myself as Secretary.  Bill’s main priority will be to find some ways to get more cars onto the race track and he is open to any ideas or suggestions.

With that in mind, the first round of the AFJA Championship has come and gone, and the results are shown below:

Now, just because you  have missed the first round doesn’t mean that it is too late to join the fun, because all 10 historic rounds are valid, but only your 4 best rounds count towards the pointscore.  So, you can miss a couple and/or have a DNF here and there, but sill remain competitive through the year and the overall winner for each class won’t really be known until the end of the year.  I will also include the historic round at Barbagallo if it is on, but I couldn’t find it listed on the website calendar. 

And whilst it is great to see all three FJ classes represented at the first round (front engined, rear engine drum brakes and rear engined disc brakes) it would be even better if we had an F3 car joining us.  So, please give it some thought and come and join the fun.


Noel Bryen,

Secretary, AFJA.
