Annual General Meeting
We held our annual AGM last night (21 July 2016) where two new committee members were selected. This happened because Gordon resigned due to personal reasons and in line with our Constitution the whole committee then steps down. Adrian also elected to not make himself available for re-selection due to work commitments. Stewart, Justin and Jannie made themselves available again, and were all re-elected. We decided that with Jeannette (Darroch) doing the scoring she should be re-elected automatically as well as Andy (Dickson) the GTA Technical Consultant. The members then elected Jake Hamman and Terry Wilford to look after the MPC’s and Super Saloons respectively.
With this, we would like to welcome the new members to the committee but also to thank Adrian for his contribution during the last year or so. Most importantly, we would like to thank Gordon (Slabbert) for all the years (more than 20) that he has unselfishly supported and dedicated his time to The Clubman’s Association and Motorsport in general. He also served on the Northern Region Committee for many years. Coming from Carltonville, he must have travelled thousands and thousands of kilometres for Clubmans, in fact he did not race himself during the last 15 odd years. THANKYOU Gordon, your presence and valuable input will be missed. We wish you only the best and that your personal situation may change to the effect that you may find your way back with us in the near future!!!
The Committee members that will take Clubmans to our 50th anniversary next year are as follows:
Chairman Stewart McLarty
Vice Chairman Justin Robertson
Super Saloons Representative Terry Wilford
MPC Representative Jake Hamman
Scorer Jeannette Darroch
Yellow cards & website Jannie Gerber

Thank you for joining our series
- For 2016 We have confirmed television coverage for at least 6 rounds of the championship
- We will have pre event ads and post-race reports in Motorsport World
- Racepics media has been hired to do pre race and post event publicity on Facebook and internet and to provide photography at events. They are also involved directly with the television coverage.
- Inland Championship should receive pre race and post-race reports in the Citizen Newspaper, these reports are to be done by Racepics.
- Very active social media platforms to promote our events through better promotion of categories on race days with track displays and grid walks which will be allocated to different categories on different days.
- Race programmes at most events where competitors can also post driver profiles and adverts for their sponsors at minimal cost
All of these efforts should make for events that are well promoted and can present a great platform for competitor to have a filled grid of good racing. Competitors must remember that they can also play a big role in promoting their categories with positive support and promotion and that this involvement can assist them to get personal sponsors. Every effort possible is being made to ensure we promote our series as best as possible and with a positive number of Members signing on since the beginning of the year we are expecting to have good grids. Contact your friends and have them come and join us at the inland championship.
