Once again, we have some amazing photos from Craig at Loose Canon Shots (loosecanonshots@gmail.com). To view the image please look at our gallery for the test and tune 6 here. If you require larger copies of any photos - please email Craig and he will provide them where possible.

Now onto club business. A General club meeting at the track is on the 12th July at 2pm sharp. This meeting is being called to discuss rule changes for the rule book for 2015. It is recommended that all members attend if you want your voice heard and your ideas put forth. Please note: its byo chair and food/drinks as no canteen service will be available at meeting.

Finally, in regards to the Race Meeting on the 2nd of August. This has to be moved due to a request from the Council as a result of the V8 Supercars running on that same date. Instead of simply setting a date, in fairness to members we will put the race date for August to vote at our July race meet on the 5th July. If you want to have your say on the date for the August meet - you MUST be at the July race meet to vote.
