Just arrived home from the COFFS HARBOUR MASTERS, where a small number of us Vintage members got Lots and Lots of track time.
Doug Mappo blew them all away with his lap times, with the current Rotax boys suggesting they did not want him in their class??
The Twin Clubby drew more than a casual glance, and the Mermaid added to the vision of days gone by, while Phil's "Best UN RESTORED" was intriguing to say the least?.
We made the associated TV news and had heaps and heaps of enquires from people of years gone by.
So all in all a lot of fun and some very real interest from the spectators some of who I am sure, have gone home and dragged the "Oldy" out from under the bench?
Worth a date on our Calendar for next year?
I think it is.
Vintage tyres are also available to order from APB Auto in QLD. They are the agents for Azusa Engineering in California. They will import any the full range of Azusa parts and you can find part numbers at www.azusaeng.com. I have previously ordered tyres, axles, sprockets, cables, steering wheels, etc. This is the same company that manufactured the original parts in the '50s & 60's. There are also a number of retailers/agents in the USA who may sell the items cheaper on-sale.
Sup Regs are on the KNSW Site,
Track is available from the Wednesday right through,
fee is $70.00 in total for as many days as you want.
Sunday Night "Party" has always been a good night.
COFFS HARBOUR ......... JUNE 8th 9th 10th ............2018.
The Coffs Harbour over 40's meeting has been a major meeting for all the "Older" gentlemen of our sport to gather once a year and discuss all the BS that they have gained through the past year, and generally enjoy the fellowship while trying to convince themselves they "Still have it?".
This year the Club has included an opportunity for us "Vintage" people to participate as we did many years ago.
Now I could go on about how we left the meeting some years ago, but in general it was because the overall event just grew soooo big, WE decided that our Vintage section should look at another venue and that was when and why we originally went to the Tamworth venue.
However this year, possible because of the very much depleted KA stock, but who cares why?
we have the opportunity to again have a run at the impeccable Coffs Harbour track and again enjoy the fellowship of the "Older" Karters left in our sport.
Pre entries are available via the CM:S System, I am certainly going as our "gong" crew will be there in force and I will throw one of my vintage into the trailer, John Horsborough has entered, and I notice Doug Mappo is coming with another Newcastle member, some more would be great, for one day or all of the days.
This meeting is the ideal promotional outing for our Vintage Movement as we have the right audience and I know the Coffs club will appreciate our support.
SO WHO WILL COME AND ENJOY!! ALL WELCOME PLENTY OF TRACK TIME PROMISED
