Sunday 8 June – Now Broadford not DECA
Late last week we were advised by DECA management that due to safety reasons our Queen’s Birthday event would only have access to the skid pan. Neither the back track nor the centre track would be available for our use. Despite working with both CAMS and AASA we were not able to reverse this decision.
We have quickly sought an alternative and have been able to gain access to Broadford for the Sunday 8 June in lieu of DECA.
This should not change the amenity of the weekend for any of our entrants that live south of Winton. Overnight stays and dinners in Benalla and Shepparton can still proceed as normal and on Sunday morning you will have a leisurely 104km drive from Shepparton, or 127km from Benalla down to Broadford. We will have a 0930 start at Broadford so that you aren’t too rushed.
Broadford is one of the more unusual tracks on our itinerary, very enjoyable and quite testing. The last time we were there in late 2012 we ran the event as a sprint which gave far more track time than the hillclimb format. This time we intend to do the same but will classify the event as non-sprint in relation to championship points. We will have groups of 8 cars, evenly spread on the track for warm up, 3 hot laps, cool down.
Entree Class will be available at this event. Entree Class is the ideal racetrack introduction for new members and those who haven't competed before. Entree Class numbers are limited. Click Here for Entree Class information.
