Finally, we are getting good news and signs that things are opening up as restrictions are lifting slowly.
We will be doing a virtual members meeting again on Tuesday, 2 June but then getting back to actually getting out into the world!
We are setting up events as we speak, the plan being that we will return to doing drives and outings in June. The first will be a drive on the Queen’s Birthday holiday, look out for entry details for that in the next couple of days.
We have also been in discussion with Motorsport Australia and tracks to see when we will be able to get back on track. I am very happy to say that we will be going ahead with our planned Sandown Come and Try and Driver Training Day on 14 June. We have the permit and everything organised, we're just working through the final requirements for a Covid-Safe plan so we can release entries. So keep an eye on your emails, entries should be out later this week. It will be great to get out and have a squirt on a track again! This day will be for everyone, whether you want to come and practice, just a few laps to stretch your car's legs, or get a few tips on lines and improving lap times, you are all welcome.
We will also be needing some instructors and officials for the event, so even if you don’t want to drive around the track you can come and help as an official. There won’t be any spectators allowed this time and there will be a few other requirements to keep everyone safe, but should be a great day!
Other events and our strategy to get back out doing the things we love will be released as we go along and, of course, will depend on the fluctuations of restrictions and how we, as a community, respond to easing restrictions and any outbreaks.
Keep well everyone, the light at the end of the tunnel is growing brighter!
