Proposed change to track 2

Peter Hulbert (Timer) has noticed on a recent SCTA timing slip that I sent him that timing at Bonneville actually starts at the 1 mile and they still have a trap at the 2 ¼ mile. I don't know how long they have been doing this and if this is because they just couldn't get the extra track length for ...

Re: August 2021 DLRA General Meeting

Well the likelihood of us being able to hold a General Meeting on the 10th October is getting less and less. As an indicator as to how things will open up, word has it that regional schools will go back around the 12th October with Metro schools not going back until the 26th. We will keep monitoring...

August 2021 DLRA General Meeting

August 2021 DLRA General Meeting Well we did have a meeting planned for the 15th August, but Victoria is in lockdown again until at least the 12th and may continue on past that date.
