Xmas Race on the Kingleman in Woolongong

Postby stoo23 » Wed Nov 06, 2019 11:10 am

Troy may have mentioned this 'Idea' to some of you already but he is Keen to hold an SRC style event (for Normal Retro CanAm cars and GT-1's), in December and perhaps continue to have this Xmas Gold Cup as an Annual 'Event !!

I think he will probably also announce / chat about this at the forthcoming HSC SRC round,.. but he has chatted with me about it a few times and asked if I could put something up about it here on the Forum.

I am aware Troy would also be keen to Include some SRC 'Events at his track next year but perhaps Tuesday evenings Aren't that great to be traveling so far South for many of us and similarly he figured that for his December event that a Weekend would be far better/easier traveling and timing wise.

Looking at the Calendar, it would Seem the Weekend of the 14th & 15th December would be the theoretical dates so is really a matter of simply deciding whether it should be on the Saturday or the Sunday,.. Day or Evening etc.

The Track (being an Older Gary Johnson built track from around the late 80's / early 90's) Looks Great !! (having been re-braided / Cabled and re-finished) and Looks So Smooth and is running the new Johnson Racing System/Timers as at SSME & HSC.

SO is really just a matter of people 'VOICING' their Interest and Preference etc, so as to allow Troy to Officially Schedule the Event.

For All of those Normally attending and racing in the SRC,.. here is a Great chance to race on a Great,.. Older, But NEW track that should provide some Great racing as it did for many years when it was when at Mobile raceways in Victoria.

It was and Is a very Fast and Smooth extremely well built track, with the same 'Style' of lane routing as on Both the HSC tracks.

They used to run Our style of Retro cars on this track when at Mobile raceways and GT-1's should be fantastic and arguably Ideal for this style of track so Should (In Theory), make for some great Racing.

Obviously, your response Here would be Great, but if you Read this and Don't 'Post' a reply, PLEASE make your thoughts etc available to Troy at the next SRC round at HSC !!!

The Track / Karting Centre is actually 'Located' in Kembla Grange visible from and just Off the "Princess Hwy", but if you 'SEE' it on your Right, then you have gone too far !!,.. :lol:

I could be tempted for sure - the track looks great for Flexies and Fast Retros (Retro Hawk motor - maybe Retro Pro but not many have these).

Yes,.. perhaps so, regarding the JK Retro Hawk motors, but Many / Most of the guys normally running in the SRC events, may Not actually have them, compared to the Normal Retro cars they run in the Normal SRC events.

As mentioned, they used to run Retro's in Melbourne on this track when still running Cheetah 2's !!

That said, I do ofcourse tend to agree with you regarding Retro Pro's,.. but then that is another matter altogether,..lol

I think, for what would be an 'Inaugural' Initial (sort of test Race), keeping it similar to a Standard SRC style event, would allow for the Most numbers of possible attendees, as almost Everyone that might be interested, Has Both a Normal Retro and a GT-1 :)
