Shannons Insurance Tin Bin Dash Rallysprint

This years Rallysprints are in Tidbinbilla. The move allows us two different sections, 4.6 and the other 6.0 km. These are nice technical bits of road to keep the drivers and co-drivers busy. Sections will be used in both directions for 3 repeated runs, so a total of 66 competitive km. About 10km transport.

Also running the ‘Sunday Drivers’ navigational sub-event again, which runs into NSW, which is about 40km.

Double entries will be accepted, and should be enough time complete the all the runs each, if do not mess about changing over.

 

Spectating

Spectator point is on a grassy ridge near the tricky crest in enchanted forest.  First car starts 11am.  There will be a break of around 30 minutes to reverse the course, which is a good time to grab some food from the BBQ running at in the Service Park.  Please support the BBQ, which is fundraising for Camp Quality.

Driving in to the spectator point, starting from Cotter Playground is about 7km total, 4km of gravel.   Driving Directions

  1. Starting at Cotter Avenue Junction

LCCC Vs BMSC Interclub Power karts

About 1/2 dozen members fronted up to represent the LCCC at the PowerKarts interclub challenge with BMSC.   A big thanks to Micheal and BMSC for organizing it, everyone seemed to have a great time.

After the five heats,  based on best lap times in the heat, 10 drivers qualified for the final.  The final was run as a race with a grid start race, so messing about with “dust gaps” to get a hot lap in.  Russ Winks was able to draw pole position and hold on to the end for the win for LCCC.

Hopefully we can get more LCCC members next time to even up the numbers, everyone is welcome.  Its a good chance for some Khanacross drivers to try and show up some of the rally drivers, who are slow to un-learn old habits of backing it into the turns under brakes.

Rallysprint Round 3 Entries Open

Shannons Insurance and Light Car Club of Canberra are happy to be running Blue range Rallysprint on Sunday 4th October.

Same stage as the previous events, with some minor tweaks to format, mostly to allow for double entries without adding to the schedule.

  • 4 runs each way (best 2 scored)
  • Double entries are accommodated by sharing their runs, so that each driver only gets only 2 runs each direction
  • Entrants are encouraged to provide an official.

There is a also a optional Navigational sub-event to give entrants something extra to do during the stage turnaround break.  Note this component will cross into NSW, so anyone doing it needs to have registration valid in both jurisdictions.

Volunteer Officials and Entrants can contact us bluerange@lightcarclub.org
