Kicked my arse on that stage, no doubt about that. But given my pace I wouldn't necessarily go waving that around as an achievement..!!!

One Day Licenses

What is the go with one day licenses (Senior National One Day)?

Looks like Vintage MX and Classic Road Racing get the benefit of them, but not other disciplines. Are old bike events underwritten differently in the TPD Insurance that your license covers?

Seems unfair given that Nav Rally Racing has only 2 events a year, and one of those is a huge financial commitment which puts it out of reach for a lot of people.

You can get a one day licence for a lot of events, but not bigger events like Condo, A4DE, Finke, Hattah etc because they are bigger events I suppose.

I guess they are considered national events rather than club events and so require the proper licensing...

3. We are working on single seater side by sides (Garry), and will be in the Supp. Regs (which I am going to rewrite in the next couple of weeks).
Great Info GT.
With regards to the SXS (side by sides). Can you still do two crew, or is it single seat (driver) only this year?

This conversation had me chuckling this morning getting a coffee

That would have been the free flowing BMW special I'm guessing, actually I just had a look at the results and we were swapping times all weekend. I've just realised micheal you prologued faster than both Dave and I even with your ICO reading out

Next year of course you will have to find someone else to race with because I'll be in the top twenty ....














Twenty five ish..

Nice work copping 24m30s worth of penalties on the first day too Michael

Was that just for riding a funduro ?

Ha ha. To explain my pace (or lack thereof) in the prologue, I should explain that before I'd ever even turned a wheel in a rally I was given two pieces of advice that have stuck with me through my rally "career" (??):

1) if you see spectators next to the track, slow down - spectators don't gather at boring sections of the course; and
2) don't ever DNF in the prologue!!!!

Well, that's my explanation and I'm sticking to it.....

The name 1 DAY LICENCE, says it all....Condo is a 2 day event....A 1 day licence is usually only for single club events, for example AMSCC holds a sprint, for members. You turn up, buy a one day licence, and run, as long as you are a member of the club. No other Clubs are invited.

Condo is a National Open Event

The rules for 2 seater will stand, we are going to talk to CAMS to alter the Supp. Regs, to allow single seat buggies, as per the FIA T3 regulations.

Approval was actually obtained, in principle, last year, but too late to add to the Regs., and too late for Garry to take his vehicle back to a single seater.

I'm now fairly certain that knowing where I am makes me ride slower, I'm always worrying about getting lost. I plan to ride the entire course next year without ever actually being sure I'm on it

The starters must have been pissed at me for not sharing my latte...

That would be me always taking to long between stages, I'm not the best at time mangement which is why I became a project manager

I'm actually going to pay attention to those little scribbles on the time card next time.

Anything with two wheels and a motor!

Were you hanging out with Robbo on the 450rr last year? (I think I recognise the name from his dakar facebook page).

Head on down,

Friday night the main street is closed and the bikes and cars are on display etc.
That is good for a bit of a look and getting into the atmosphere of the event.

Go into the near by pub and have a feed and a drink.

You can get a rough map of where the track goes,
beside fence lines and where the track crosses a road.
You then can move along with different vantage points as the race progresses.
And where lunch breaks are, the starting line etc.

Saturday is a few drinks something to eat and check out the cars and bikes.

Sunday night is presentation night.
