Shelby Fest Qld EOI
« on: November 30, 2018, 11:28:48 PM »
ShelbyFest  Qld  @ Morgan Park Raceway      Warwick Qld.                         
Organiser tba


Proposed Dates  April 8/9/10, 2019 (Mon, Tues, Wed)
These dates will allow travel on the weekend before, and travel home from Thursday.
Or, better still make a holiday of it.
These dates are within Qld and Vic school holidays, but not NSW.
We cannot have it any later as there is the World Cup Polocrosse event in Warwick from 15/4/2019.

We are limiting the number of competitors to 60.
If we get more than that we will consider extras.
It will be open to Cobras, Daytonas, GT40s and Mustangs. Mainly Shelby cars.
There may be a possibility of Invited Cars if space allows. By all means, put in an Expression of Interest.
This will be a “no-frills but lotsa-thrills” event.
Plenty of track time:
Monday -  Practice on the 3km track, and the 2.1km track
Tuesday - Hillclimb on the 1.2km track, Driving ability tests, Regularity for novice drivers
Drags on the proper drag strip, side by side with timing.
Wednesday – Sprints, and Regularity final.

We won’t have trophies for every player, but there will be some Awards.
Classes will be similar to the Nationals.

Dinners on 3 nights will be included in the package.
The Morgan Park Canteen will also be open for daytime meals.
There will be things for the ladies and non-competitors organised. A Winery bus trip to Stanthorpe and the Granite Belt is one. Sally Edwards will take on this role.

There will be more information following, after we get an idea of numbers.
We have formed a small committee,  and are keen to have volunteers and people who are passionate about making this happen.

Yve Stocks will collate accommodation places willing to look after us. I would think that you will need Sunday to Thursday/Friday packages.

The Committee so far:
President Cobra Club Qld  -  Denis Stone
Liason  -   Yve Stocks and Chris Hatfield
Track Official  -  Don Hughes
Ladies activities  -  Sally Edwards
Scrutineer  -  Chris Hatfield and helpers

Please feel free to add your name to the list so it all runs smoothly. We need lots of volunteers for flag marshalling, starters, marshalling cars in their groups.
