2013 Counties Classic Series – Round 2 – 2pm SATURDAY – 9 March 2013 at Colin Dale Park, Prices Rd (off Puhinui Rd), Manukau, Auckland.
There’s alot to play for with the Counties Classic Series overall win worth $1500 to the highest pointing racer after 3 rounds and Club points to competitors from Counties, Auckland and ATR clubs.
UTV Racer, Eric Tears currently leads the score sheet, but he faces big competition in, what has fast become, the largest field at the first round. Eric will need to consistantly win all his shortcourse heats to hold onto the lead. The title and the prize money are still anyones to win.
2013 AORC Club Championship Dates
We can finally confirm the venue and format for the first two rounds of the 2013 AORC Club Championships.
As agreed and voted on at our last club meeting we have approached CMORC regarding the possibility of running Round 1 of the AORC Club Champs within Round 2 of the Counties Classic series in place of the intended 1st Forest sprint and CMORC have agreed to this.
ATR will also be using points from the same event towards their ATR club points.
CMORC have also agreed to allow us to run Round 2 of the AORC Club Champs at Round 3 of the CMORC Counties Classic event.
Hopefully, both these occasions should see a good turnout of competitors to front up against each other at effectively what is an interclub event.
Each event will comprise 3 x short course races & 1 x Feature race format unless otherwise described in CMORC entry.
You can simply enter the event as an AORC member and pay the appropriate entry fee stated on CMORC entry form.
Be aware that CMORC venue rules will need to be strictly adhered to.
Event results will be supplied to AORC from CMORC, whereupon all non AORC club members will be deleted from the results list to leave the points received by AORC club members which will go towards the Club Championship (i.e. if you came 3rd in class on the day, but 1stAORC member, then you will score points for 1st for the AORC club).
There have been some date changes by CMORC for these events, so please note the following confirmed event dates:-
Round 1 – Saturday 9th March – to be held in conjunction with Round 2 of the CMORC Counties Classic
Round 2 – Saturday 6th April 2013 – again, to be held in conjunction with Round 3 of the CMORC Counties Classic.
Please note these two events are “twilight” meetings with scrutineering starting at midday, drivers briefing at 2.00pm, racing starting at 2.30pm and racing completed around 7.00pm.
We look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!
