Please see Chairman’s letter above “from the Chair”

Next event date above is only provisional !!

The new MPC rules have been submitted, so for 2018 that will be the way forward.

Classes are time based (times quoted are Zwartkops based but all tracks will have breakout times), all cars are on semi slicks, front and rear wheel drive monoque based cars. No space frames in MPC. SRA specific cars will still be racing with MPC.

It is now time to get hold of your mates and people that have raced Clubmans before and show how good we can make the racing, close and competitive and a good spirit between the drivers, beat him on the track and braai with him afterwards. There is now no reason for any politics and nobody can be cheating so come and race with us in 2018. The calendar has been released but there is always the possibility of a change somewhere but we can work on these dates for now

We will plan some social events during 2018 which will include a breakfast run one Sunday morning, a go kart social and an away invitational event to Dezzi maybe also a time attack event on one of the go kart tracks. On the 20th of January there will be an open track day at MIDVAAL with a braai and also a chance to do a technical inspection on all cars to do safety checks. All cars that are to race in our series for 2018 will need to have our technical inspection by one of our technical people that we can ensure we keep a safety standard and also maintain a good level of appearance to our club. Those that cannot come to Midvaal will be able to make arrangements with one of our technical people to have the inspection done before the first race. Our first noggin will be on the 18th January at ERPM to allow members to sign up and get their numbers for the season. Anybody that wishes to join earlier can do the payment to the club account and will be given their membership number for 2018 to assist with getting your licence. Those that are over 50 be aware that you need to go for the heart ECG so give yourself enough time before the first event.

We are currently negotiating for some sponsors and are aiming at doing a similar press package as 2018

6 televised rounds

Race programmes at every event

Promotional pamphlets to promote our dates for the season

Coverage in Motorsport World

Social media press and photography  

We are looking forward to the club growing and believe we should have a very good place to race and have good grids of competitors. Looking forward to 2018. Be safe over the festive season and enjoy your holidays. We will start doing press early in the new year so if you plan on racing with us please drop me a mail that we can start early promoting our drivers and series.

Regards

Justin ROBERTSON
