Club Cham­pi­onships post­poned for Whit­sun­day Mo­to­sports Club

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

ROUND 2 of the Whit­sud­nay Mo­to­sports Club’s Club Cham­pi­onships have been post­poned fol­low­ing a num­ber of com­pli­ca­tions at the week­end.

The fore­cast for bad weather forced of­fi­cials’ hands on Fri­day when the club of­fi­cially opted to hold off pro­ceed­ings for Satur­day and Sun­day

Weather re­ports were ul­ti­mately proved wrong, as the sun shone for all of Sun­day and the bet­ter part of Satur­day af­ter­noon at the Whit­sun­day Race­way.

Whit­sun­day Mo­to­sports Club pres­i­dent An­drew Auld said re­gard­less of weather, the cham­pi­onships would’ve been dif­fi­cult to co­or­di­nate.

“There was a lot of other mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing in North Queens­land on the week­end and we had trou­ble get­ting hold of our of­fi­cial [who had a fam­ily com­mit­ment],” Auld said.

“The other guys who could’ve helped were also busy, so we were down a stew­ard. We could’ve made it a prac­tice but with the amount of rain fore­cast we de­cided to resched­ule. It’s a bit dis­ap­point­ing but there are plenty of other week­ends.”

Auld said the club would meet to de­ter­mine an ap­pro­pri­ate date to host the catch-up event.

Rounds 3 and 4 of the four round cham­pi­onships are sched­uled for Septem­ber 7 and Novem­ber 16.

Frank Teske, Mungo McMur­trie, Brodie Oats, Shaun Wei­d­man, Ash­ley Wheeler and Craig Garth cur­rently top the rank­ings for their re­spec­tive classes fol­low­ing round 1, which was held on April 26.

RAINED OUT: The Whit­sun­day Race­way was a gloomy sight late last week, which prompted of­fi­cials to post­pone the Whit­sun­day Mo­to­sports Club's Club Cham­pi­onships.
