Have the rules changed or is it different for the Australian Championship. Why is it our kids couldn't practice on Friday at the QLD State Titles and yet they can at the Australian Championships. Am I missing something.

Yep,there a mess.You will have found you could have practiced right up until friday.As far as the Nats go kids get 3 practice runs on the friday and then straight into QLY sat morning.I dont think 3 sessions is anywhere near enuff track time to learn a new track.In fact id go so far as to say its border line dangerous.Another blunder to add to an everincreasing list.Soft tyres,no practice ....................carnage.

In regard to state title meetings. The rule that says no practice for the week of the event is just stupid. I understand track work needs to be done in preparation for the event but at least allow free practice on the Thursday. That way guys living hours away don't have to travel to the track weeks in advance to test. Far cheaper to book accomodation and tow the trailer just the once..

Last year the rule stated no practice Friday.I seen plenty of kids on the track thursday when i was there.The rule was built around school holidays for the nats.I agree with u Jack.Cheaper to tow the trailer once.

Was the same for round 2 of Australian, juniors practice after 2 pm Friday with a signed letter from the Principle,

QLD round1, Adults - Friday with 3 practice sessions prior to timed qualifying,

Juniors - 1 practice Saturday morning starting 8 am then 2 timed practices before qualifying (still tyring to figure the timed as qualy grid was anywhere) all about 1 hour apart, awesome -- not!

Rotax the same, no juniors Friday's unless school or public holiday,

90% of us that live away and tow arrive around  Thursday or Friday morning "with the kids" to set up.

Yep - a funny rule when you consider the most important time for education is the senior years and yet adults (over 15 majority still at school) can practice on Fridays.

Totally agree Wayne. A Senior at 15 is still in School and yet they can practice on the Friday. If the rule is aimed at keeping kids in School, then what's the difference. This rule needs a serious overhaul.

The only way you are likely to get any traction with the current administration is just simply boycott the events.

Its got to a point that there are so many that talk but little few are people of action so they just keep on their marry way doing what suits the advancement of themselves and their kids careers.

So until people start talking with their feet, you are waisting your breath.

Hey guys the thing that is frustrating for me is that I really want to enter the state titles.. but im a school teacher and there is quali and one heat from memory on the Friday. Now if kids cant practice on Friday its not really right for a teacher to throw a sicky on a Friday either.. Would it be to hard to have qualifying and racing Saturday sunday? And I ask that as a serious question as I haven't entered a state since 2014 when it was an open one off meet and held in school holidays.
