This is a private event which will result in a lot of fun track time for all involved with the focus on enjoyment. -

As we will not know the condition of the track till the day, factors that can affect its surface are the weather and who was running on the track the week before.
What we will do if you see the track and don't think it is suitable for your car on the day we are more than happy to refund your money before you start. It's always wise to walk the track to familiarise yourself again or go for the first walk to pick you lines.

* Laps will be starting from a standing start on the starting pad you will be waved on to the track where you will complete 1 standing lap and 4 flying laps (this may be changed throughout the day depending on the general feeling - 5 laps is a good place to start as cars don't get too hot)
* Dangerous driving will NOT be tolerated and you will be asked to leave

* Civil Drivers License Required - CAMS license required

MYOB AccountRight Standard

New Year, new financial reporting software! The program of choice was MYOB AccountRight Standard.

This software has a lot of the features the committee will be able to use and have more meaningful financial reports than ever before.

The program will allowed the creation of digital receipts for payments and has an inventory manager for all of the club merchandise.

The job profit and loss feature will allowed us to keep track of income and expenses of specific events. Most importantly it will allows us to generate reports for any period we require (monthly, year to date or any other period that we require) instantly, this not being available to us in the past.

Overall once the set up of accounts was completed the MYOB Account Right software was a breeze to use and is very institutive, it even does some of the bookkeeping automatically. The program allows us to recall club supplier details and keeps track of previous prices paid.

To sum up MYOB AccountRight is a very power software program that seems to have almost every function an organisation could require to run, it goes beyond the debits and credits of a basic accounting software package and has the potential be used solely as an organisations database holding for client and supplier details, monitoring performance of the business generally and allows you to drill down and report on jobs, days, weeks, months and years. It is recommended by the wrx club if you are looking to upgrade your current accounting software.
