MONTH IN REVIEW 

Dear members

October brought us some good news in that we were finally able to get out and about and see you all again.

Our month started with a "drop in at Daniel’s Donuts" night for some of our regional members in Geelong which was well attended.  

____________________

We had our October members meeting via Zoom where we were given the opportunity to hear from a number of different people who volunteer in different disciplines of motorsport. 

____________________

Once we finally got the green light to socialise in Metro Melbourne, we arranged a metro drive on the Mornington Peninsula which was really well received.  We had over 30 cars leave Hastings to then finish a beautiful sunny day with a picnic at Arthurs Seat.


At the same time, we also had a regional drive along the Great Ocean Road where our regional members got together for lunch.  It was great to have a prospective member attend and then decide to join us.  We do always love having new and prospective members join us at our events.

____________________

On 26 October we then held a members only virtual event with Steve and Clay Richards to talk all things racing and the future plans for the Richards' with Steve joining Clay on the Toyota 86 grid at Bathurst later this year.

Darryl O'Neill was also lucky enough to walk away with a model M6 GT3!
