Chairman’s report

Hi  everybody

Compliments of the season to all and hope you had a blessed festive season and are all eager to race. For 2019 we are looking forward to a good season for MOTUL CLUBMANS ASSOCIATION and are expecting some good grids. For those that have checked our rules changes we have done all the changes requested but in summary.

NB, for 2019 we are a club class so when taking out your MSA licence you will only require a club licence. This was done to reduce costs for our members and also allow members from other clubs to also compete with us, remember though, you have to be a Clubmans member to race with us, but it is the best place to race so you will want to be a member and stay with us. Clubmans racing is time based to attract any car that is eligible and meets the necessary MSA safety requirements. MPC is for front and rear wheel drive production-based cars competing on semi slicks. Supersaloons is for production cars and space frame cars competing on slicks. We welcome any car with any powerplant to come and race with us and you will be competing against those that do the same lap times as you, and as 2018 showed our club had a tremendous spirit and camaraderie with great racing on the track and great spirit in the pits afterwards. When you improve your lap times you simply take your points earned and move up a class, with our top classes not having a break out time so we have no sandbagging for lap time. 2018 again showed how all our competitors continually improved their times through the year and pushed as hard as they could to beat the guy on the grid next to them.

During the year we will have two or three social events for our members and for 2019 we will also be making pit shirts available for our members through our new associate sponsors GRANGE WORKWEAR. Welcome onboard and we look forward to being the best presented club in the pits this year. We will again endeavour to give our club a great press platform so that members can obtain individual sponsors for themselves. We are still in the process of confirming some series sponsors for 2019 and will announce as soon as confirmed but in 2018 we provided great press for our series on social media, printed press and 6 televised rounds of our racing.

Also, not to forget our annual prizegiving where we pay tribute to our champions with the coolest trophies and prizes and a great function.

Our first noggin for 2019 will be on the 24 January 2019 at ERPM Golf course in Boksburg at 19h30. Remember you get points for attending the noggin and with how close our championship results were in 2018, I suggest you attend everyone.
