Some dates to take note of:-
Monday 26 April (Anzac holiday) – Come & Try Hillclimb at Collingrove.

Saturday 1 & Sunday 2 May – Rd 2 of the SA Circuit Racing Championship at Mallala.
Sunday 23 May – MSCA 6hr at Mallala. We have a couple of interested parties to form a team, but if more interest isn’t shown shortly there won’t be a TSOA team entered this year. Contact Roger Lange or myself soon.

Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 May – Winton Historics at Winton Motor Racing Circuit. There are usually a small number of TSOA members attending this.

Friday 25 – Sunday 27 June – Australian Rally Championships – Rally of SA

Saturday 26 & Sunday 27 June – All British Race Meeting and Sprint at Wakefield Park, NSW. Anyone interested in tagging along to or competing in this event please contact Myself or Roger Lange. Roger and myself are not competing this year however Rod Carey and Neil Martin are possible entries from SA.

Sunday 4 July – MSCA Sprint Rd 2 at Mallala. TSOA flaggies are required. Free lunch and drinks and a close up of action on the track. Please phone me to volunteer your time and show your support for the TSOA and those in our club who participate in motorsport. Please don’t make me phone you.
Saturday 21 & Sunday 22 August – Rd 3 of the SA Circuit Racing Championship at Mallala. A round of the Victorian MG Race series is being run as part of this meeting, and with “Invited Marques” allowed to take part, there could well be some Triumphs creating trouble for the MGs!

Sunday 19 September – MSCA Sprint Rd 3 at Mallala.
Sunday 24 October – MSCA Sprint Rd 4 at Mallala.

Saturday 30 & Sunday 31 October – Rd 4 of the SA Circuit Racing Championship at Mallala.
It would appear at this stage that the Classic Adelaide Rally may be at an end following the apparent collapse of Silverstone Events, the organising body.

Social Scene – April 2010

Monday, April 12th, 2010

The mid week run on 3rd March was well attended by 30 people and headed to Strathalbyn’s Victoria Hotel for lunch.  Members Peter & Jean Boxall from Hervey Bay joined us as they were visiting Adelaide at the time and came along to catch up with SA members.  We were also joined by Fay Esau’s sister and husband who were visiting from Brisbane.

The run through the hills to Woodside on 21st March saw over 35 people sample the sweet delights of Melba’s Chocolates, some doing their Easter shopping.  After leaving the chocolate factory we drove to Millies Bakery in Mt Barker for even more sweet treats and coffee.  Thanks to Arrand who put this run together.  It was great to see Richard and Deb out again in their newly acquired yellow TR7.

Don’t forget the Day of Triumph of Sunday 16th May at Civic Park opposite Tea Tree Plaza Shopping Centre with gates opening at 9.00am.   Judging will commence at 10.30am.   Even if you don’t want to enter your car, come along and put the car on display.   Bring a picnic lunch or buy from the shopping centre opposite.

The weekender on 5th/6th June is filling fast so if you are thinking of coming along please get in touch with either Sue or Margie to book your place.
