Southern City Classic Details From The President

Club President Adam Bourke has issued this statement detailing the late class changes for the Southern City Classic to be held April 9 2011.

Hi All,
Due to the change of classes by the AKA/NKC, we at OGKRC have decided to be one of the first clubs to get these classes happening.

We at OGKRC fully back the Sportsman class for the smaller open meetings and club day racing.

We believe it will bring back the larger fields and encourage the Restricted driver to move up.

While it is a late decision to change the line up of classes, we hope that karter’s will see the benefit and come and race, especially trying the Junior Top Guns format that has worked so well over the years of qualifying then one heat and a final of 25 laps.

There will be prizes on offer for the 2 sportsman classes as well, including 3 sets of tyres for each class.

I look forward to seeing large fields of the Sportsman class race.

Adam Bourke
President OGKRC

Southern City Classic

Updated 31/3/2011 – Class list now streamlined due to offering Sportsman

Updated 30/3/2011 – Sportsman 125 Light and Sportsman 125 Heavy added to classes offered.

OGKRC’s annual open event, the Southern City Classic will be held on Saturday April 9. This year some changes have been made to the race format. There will be 1 x 5 minute timed qualifying session, 1 x 15 lap race, followed by 1 x 25 lap final. Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Finishing order of the final determines the winner of each class.

As the racing is being held on the Saturday, this allows us to start racing later in the day (approx 2pm) and complete the racing under lights. If you enjoy long races, and racing under lights, come along and race on Saturday April 9. Please ensure you bring a clear visor as they are compulsory once the track lights are illuminated.

Button And Lowndes Drive McLaren F1 At Bathurst

Updated 31/3/2011 – Full lap taken from front wing camera.

Earlier this week Jenson Button and Craig Lowndes got a once in a lifetime opportunity to drive a McLaren Formula 1 car around Mount Panorama, Bathurst. Although only completing a few laps, Button lapped the famous track 18 seconds faster than the existing V8 supercar lap record.

Sportsman Light & Heavy Added To Southern City Classic

Sportsman 125 Light & Sportsman 125 Heavy classes have been added to the list of classes offered at the Southern City Classic.

Club President Adam Bourke said,

Hi all,
We have just added 2 classes to our Southern City Classic that is to be held on Saturday the 9th of April.

Sportsman Light @160kg and Sportsman Heavy @180kg.

I believe this will be the first race meeting where the new class is to be run. What better way to test your MG Reds with the 125cc motors than at Oakleigh and over 2 heats with lots of laps.

You will have from 9am to 1pm to test and then go racing.

Adam Bourke
President OGKRC

Please Pre-Enter All Races Online

The AKA now offers drivers the option to pre-enter race meetings online using your user name (licence number) and password. These credentials have been sent out to you from the VKA at the time of your licence renewal. So to help our club days run smoother and faster, we need all competitors to pre-enter via the AKA website. If you decide not to race it is easier to take you off the system than it is to enter you on the day. It is important that we all get into the habit of entering online as a lot of the major events will require online entries.

The AKA CMS system allows you to enter online, as well as giving you access to a range of information including:

  • Licence renewals and upgrades
  • Your personal details (endorsements and penalties)
  • Your current licence grade (A, B C etc)
  • Races you have entered and the results of those meetings
  • Lists other drivers who have pre-entered a race meeting

As we now all have access to the AKA CMS system, and the ability to enter online and check that our details are up to date, the club and officials of OGKRC will not be responsible if your licence is not correct with the information that you think it should have. We also will not be handling any issues in relation to licence renewals or club membership on the day of racing.

Whilst we will not be solving any disputes with your licence on the day of a race meeting, we are happy to help solve any issue you may have at least 48 hours prior to a race meeting. If you think you have a problem then contact the VKA directly, or the OGKRC membership secretary, Angela Russell.

If you have any question in relation to online entries of the CMS system then please email racesecretary@ogkrc.com.au or phone after 4pm.

Look forward to seeing you at the next club day

Safe racing
Michelle Carless

Race Secretary OGKRC

April Club Day Will Be Run

After much consideration, the committee of OGKRC has decided to hold the April club day races. The club has located sufficient officials and helpers to hold the event.

Those wishing to race who are not OGKRC members will need to become OGKRC members for the day for a nominal $5 charge. This can be done at the track on race day.

This race meeting will be held on Saturday April 23. Racing will start around 2pm and will continue under lights. This will be the last race meeting under lights until next year, so come along and enjoy the experience. Hope to see you there.
