June 10th Muscle Car Masters.

07/08/2018

A favorite event of the STC is the annual Muscle car masters held at eastern creek. As usual tickets were secured for club members to park in the Car Club Corale. Interestingly this year our parking was track side on the skid pan circuit this made us feel part of the action and it was a welcome bonus we did not have to walk miles to get to the cars during the day.

Congratulations to the event organizers on another job well done. The variety of cars and racing was excellent.  Some members took the opportunity to participate in Hammer time an 80% pace event with passing only permitted on the straight.  The entry fee got them 3 days of lap time and a whole lot of smiles.

Donnah was lucky enough to arrive late and get a chance to cruise the track and she is still smiling from ear to ear. The weather this year was a bit iffy with a few showers throughout the event. This made for good racing and thankfully no incidents. As usual pit lane was open and allowed us to get an up close look at some of the past and present racing greats and the other car displays were excellent.
 
By late afternoon and more rain the day drew to an end and we filtered out towards home. Great day and once again, thank you to all who attended on the day.

19th May Menangle Trots Social Night.

07/08/2018

 

bdbdffec-927d-4990-bb68-ca951db63fabBack by popular demand was the Trots social evening held at Menangle park paceway. We did this as an Xmas in July event last year and had a ball so it seemed right to revisit the event. This year we chose to hold it in May so we could try a different menu. The cost of the evening was $45.00 a head and this got you a buffet meal and the food was as usual, sensational.

We met up at 6.30 and the meet was already several races in but that did not worry us as e soon got our bets on and plates full. It was a great night of socializing and laughs. I managed to come out in front to the tune of $5.70 which incidentally was the price of a beer so I reinvested in a celebration ale.  All agreed the night was a hit thanks to all who came making it an enjoyable evening
