Sporting Triumphs – August 2013

Sunday August 25th is the TSOA’s turn to supply flag marshals for the 4th round of the MSCA SA Super Sprint Series. Volunteers don’t have to be at Mallala for the entire day if we supply enough marshals. Being a flag marshal is a great way to get an understanding of what competitors get out of sprinting. Each flag point is hooked into the event via radio communication so each flaggie gets to know exactly what’s going on during the event.

If you read my previous article you will know that the Mazda MX5 club had a very successful day when it was their turn to flag marshal. Most of their members had never been to Mallala Motorsport Park before and thoroughly enjoyed the day doing something they hadn’t done before. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us later this month which would make for a lovely picnic on the lawns.  Our recent rains have made the country very green and the plains of outer Adelaide look a spectacle.  Please contact me if you are available to assist me on the day. My contact details are in the advertisement for this event in this edition of TRak.

As I write this article there is no results posted on the web for the 3rd round of the Super Sprint Series held on July 21st. A full report of this round will be in month’s edition.

Neil Martin participated in a recent round of the Regularity season at Mallala. It would seem from the results Neil had a mixed day with a couple of DNF’s, a 4th in heat 2 followed by a 10th placing in heat 4.

Cheers,

Rick Staehr
