CAMS State Champs meet a success
EVENT commander Bill Crouch was delighted with the way the first round of the CAMS State Championship race meeting went at Morgan Park Raceway at the weekend.
Crouch is a member of the Warwick District Sporting Car Club and lives on the Gold Coast.
“It was a good meeting, there were a number of new faces (drivers),” Crouch said.
“There was a little bit of moisture, but that didn’t hurt the racing.
“There was a Gemini roll-over but no injuries.”
Club president Bill Campbell said the crowd at the first round of the championships was better than expected.
“Competitor numbers are about the same as the same time last year.”
Work is progressing on the extension to the raceway, which will increase the length of the longest circuit from 2.1 kilometres to 3km.
“Our longest circuit will be approximately 100 metres shorter than Queensland Raceway,” Campbell said.
“I expect the first meeting on the new longer circuit will be in August or September.”
A Sydney promoter has an independent race series meeting this weekend and spectators are welcome.
The meeting will feature old V8 Supercars, sports cars and many other classes of racing cars.
Other than the super sprints on April 17-18, April is a quiet month at Morgan Park Raceway, as the clubs have agreed through the Morgan Park User Group not to hold major events at the same time.
