  4. Inland Championship should receive pre race and post-race reports in the Citizen Newspaper, these reports are to be done by Racepics.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

TESTING AT RED STAR

Ben Morgenrood took his Mustang out to Red Star on the 26th January 2016, and we all are happy that, although some very tight corners, it will not be a problem for Super Saloons to race there.

My heartfelt thanks to Jaques and his team at Redstar Raceway for making the track available for testing of the Class GTA V8 Super Saloon category. I have to thank Ben and his team for giving up their time, not to mention Ben’s tedious task of having to drive a V8 Super Saloon time and time around the track. I am sure you all know that Red Star has a policy that the track direction is changed every six months. This means that if we race there in May we will race in an anti-clockwise direction, and if we race in November we will race in a clockwise direction. This required Ben to test in both directions, in fact on one particularly tight corner he tested both directions on the same lap! The run offs are smooth, and Ben’s statement that he did not have to do any three point turns at any of the corners. He also indicates that because of the smoothness of the track that it will be very kind to the tyres. The track side facilities are also SUPERB. Look forward to a great experience………Stewart
