Club treasurer Michael Reynolds said there was 107 nominations for round 1 for A drivers at the weekend.

"We had a few drivers who didn't come to Warwick after going to the Bathurst 12 Hour the previous weekend,” he said.

"There are also a few drivers who didn't have their cars ready for round 1.”

There are 133 in series A, 134 in series B and 136 in series C although not every driver will be at each round.

The Motorcycle Sportsmen of Queensland will race at Morgan Park Raceway this Sunday and then the Historic Racing Car Club of Queensland will be at the raceway on February 23-24 for a TTT (Test, Tune, Trial) Sprints meeting.
