WRX Club QLD will be having Happy Laps at Queensland Raceway

Queensland Raceway offers the opportunity to spend a leisurely morning at the track, by participating in Happy Laps, which includes breakfast. Cruise laps is a great way to introduce yourself to our award winning circuit, in a safe environment. Queensland Raceways runs on the Sprint circuit for Happy lap sessions.

Date: 17th April
Time: Arrive no later than 7am
40 Spots Available (Drivers & Passengers Combined)
Price:

RULES & REGULATIONS
HAPPY LAPS ARE NOT HOT LAPS or TEST LAPS
Happy Laps are for family cruising not performance driving.
Any car-to-car contact is an instant stop for the session
Any car going off the track is an instant stop for the session
1 sec of tyre smoke is an instant stop for the session

Speed obviously in excess of 120kph is an instant stop for the session; this is more than fair as there are over 100 events that hot drivers can use if they want to go fast.
As this is a non-competitive and reduced speed event, helmets are not permitted. The cars permitted on track must comply with Queensland road registered vehicles. Road-registered vehicles only, no trailered cars and no cars with aftermarket roll cages.
All vehicles entering the track must be currently road-registered and showing registration plates.

Your input in choosing a new Committee is vital in ensuring the growth of the club so please come along and join in.
The positions up for nomination are:

President:

Secretary:
Treasurer:
Membership:
Merchandise:
IT:
Motorsport:
Social:

As per our Constitution, all positions are considered vacant and nominations are now open for members to become actively involved in growing our club. All roles can have a deputy position, if you want to get involved, but want to start off slow. At no time will anyone who becomes a Committee member be thrown in at the deep end as it has taken time to grow the club and we all want to see it succeed and become "the" club to belong to. You will have the support of the current committee members and be guided through the role.

We have one committee meeting per month and most of the committee attend the club meetings when possible. Like you, we have jobs and businesses to run during the day so it is not difficult to find a bit of time to join in.
If you want more info on what is involved in each position, please contact any of the Committee. Remember that to keep the club running, we need a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.

Nominations are now called for the all of the above positions. Please put your nominations on the forum and the nomination has to be accepted by the person. If you are wanting to be more involved in the club, or be involved in the way the club is run, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE.

Now over to you as the members to get the nominations started.

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are all staying safe, healthy & looking forward to the festive break. I know I'm certainly looking forward to saying good-bye to 2020.
And to celebrate 2021 the WRX Club of QLD is looking to kick-start the year with a favourite; the Meet & Greet.
The Meet & Greet is a chance for everyone (member and non, family and friends) to come out and enjoy a catered and free BBQ hosted by the current committee. A chance to 'talk smack', as quoted by the club president, and a chance to just chill and socialise in the park surrounded by everyone's pride and joy.
The event will be hosted on the 31st January (last Sunday of the month).
This will be a great opportunity for everyone to come and meet the outgoing committee as we plan to hold our AGM and vote in new committee members at our February event (TBA closer to date). So if you are interested in helping steer the club for the upcoming year, or have any questions about the running of the club, do come down to the Meet & Greet and have a chat.
Keep you eyes peeled early in January for the specifics of the events; but mark down January 31, 2021 for the first WRX Club of QLD event of the year.
