Good morning members,
It was a very different ANZAC Day this year, I hope you all took a moment to reflect on those that gave so much so that we can enjoy the life we do. Jo and I were up at dawn to watch the sunrise from our driveway and say thanks to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Lest We Forget.
We are now into our second month of restrictions on events and it is very good to see Australians are doing their bit to stem the spread of the pandemic that has changed the world as we know it. It's very encouraging to hear talk of easing the limitations on what we can do and hopefully in the coming weeks and months we can start getting back to some form of normality. It will be a long slow road back, but it's nice to receive some good news.
This past week I have been talking to the tracks and Motorsport Australia about bookings we still have at Sandown, Winton and Broadford in June and July. With the talk now turning to emerging from shut down and a slow return to normal activities, we will be preparing for these events to proceed. If we are allowed to gather and run track events, we will be ready to go ahead. All of our bookings are still available to us should restrictions ease and allow us to run them. Both Winton and Sandown are keen to help us return to the track as soon as we are able to. So keep an eye on your emails and keep the dates in your calendar.
Through the rest of April and into May we will keep updating events as we are able to. Hopefully, we will be able to start running some drive events and other meetings soon too. It will all depend on what we can do under the Government restrictions and what we feel is safe to do.
This weekend we were going to go to Bright to try and inject some funds back into communities affected by the Bushfires. As soon as restrictions ease and we are safe to travel again, we will reschedule the weekend away. They still need our help and we are keen to get up there and help as soon as we can.
Keep well everyone, soon enough we will be able to get out and drive our cars again. There is a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. For now, stay home, stay safe and get your car ready to go!
