Mount Tarrengower historic Hillclimb
Once again mount tarrengower has been run and won and by all
accounts has proven to be another successful event for the club.
This is due in full to the fact that we have developed so many good
officials at our normal monthly events. Events become easy to run
when you have a crew that really knows what they are doing so to
every one who assisted on the weekend a huge thank you and pat on
the back. Chris Hume who stood in as assistant clerk of
course did a great job of organising the little details including
pointing out the “better” parts of the event, thanks Chris as I had
my mind on other things and would have missed them. I also
apologise to Ian Percival for shifting you just before the action
occurred on point four. Anyone who missed the action by not being
there talk to someone who was after all historic motor sport isn’t
really that bad is it Craig?
I should also mention the impressive efforts of club members,
who competed, namely Craig Hardiman, 3rd in class, Max
Jackman, 4th in class, Carl Seyfort, 1st in
class and Roger Hall best of his class.
As I am writing this I am just watching Marcus Ambrose take out
fourth place at Memphis in what would have to be one of the
strangest NASCAR races I have watched. Out of 250 laps, 117 were
run under caution and at 25 caution periods they were just one
short of the most amount ever. There were only 19 green flag laps
run. This would be Marcus’s (?) best finish and he started from
pole and led about seven laps all up, he is still second in the
rookie standings but is being led by a driver competing in both
divisions and has Jack Roush as team owner so a good effort to the
aussie. To those who ask why he went to NASCAR try about $800,000
in prize money this season.
Once again thanks to all helpers and if you want your officials
log signed see me at the next meeting
