Club Lotus Australia CSCA 2019 Round 1

Hi everyone,

I’ve just returned from the the first round of the 2019 CSCA Championships, proudly and very, very capably organised by Club Lotus Australia. I have to say that every year we raise the bar on the efficiency of the organisation of these sprints, and the consequent fun enjoyed by everyone. This year was a remarkable triumph for our outstanding Motorsport Committee – Mike Basquil, Dave Mackie, Mel and Gino Valdes, Craig and Cathy Shepard and Jen Hogan – thank you all, it was a belter! Even if I was in the “rather slow” category for the day.

As in previous years, all the runners from CLA participated in the organisation and marshalling. For that, my very grateful thanks. I would particularly like to recognise Brett Stevens, Peter Klumper and Brian Sutton, who, despite not running in the event, made the trip down to Wakefield to marshal. Thank you gents, that was commitment way beyond helpful. And thank you to the 35 members who ran (out of a total of 95 runners and riders on the day.) It was an outstanding turnout and lovely to see so many of you there. What a great day.

So, that is our sprint in the bag for another year and we are off and running for the season (even if I will miss most of the fun for May, June and July while I am away!)
