Re: Two way runs for 2019

G'Day Graham, 2018 program was wrong and 2018 Pre-Entry web page was wrong, this has been updated now.
But the records page was right, your profile page was right.

FIM Rulebook - Records

Below is an extract from the 2018 FIM Rulebook, I've put this here in response to some questions asked in relation to the DLRA going to "Australian Records' and what are the legal ramifications of this. I'll do a similar one for FIA (cars) Here's my comments about this; The FIM only have a hierarch...

Re: Two way runs for 2019

I should have also said that any confusion with FIM National or DLRA Australian records are defined by the class structures in use by either organisation.

Re: Two way runs for 2019

Although a "one hit wonder", would it be possible to have the record for my car, as set in 2016, added to the record list before they are all scrubbed? Pointless, I know, but possible? Graham Scott DLRA 71 G'Day Graham, have you made me aware of this before? I'll have a look at it tonight.

Re: Two way runs for 2019

Sounds good to me Greg. One (more) question though,,, 2 way records,,,,meaning runs made on consecutive days, in the same direction ? , or 2 runs, made on consecutive days, the 2nd run being made in the opposite direction to run #1 ? That seems like an awful lot of track set up work to me ? I also ...

Re: Two way runs for 2019

Been talking to Greg Telford who has been heavily involved with the track layouts for the last several years. We have spoken a lot about having a plan A, Plan B, etc. Dependent upon surface conditions as they presented when it was time to set out the layout. The key here is to try and make both trac...

Re: Two way runs for 2019

I know where you're coming from. If we did go with new records, this would be the ideal time to include the sixth miles speed if it was available.
I'd suggest you put your thoughts in writing to the club.
