The 2019 Point Score has been published with some surprising starts to the season.
the Motorkhana originally proposed for March 30 has been postponed.
The long and the short of it, the date clashed with other bookings at the facility and we were unable to secure an agreement in time to get everyone organised.
Rest assured Motorkhana lovers, the committee is reviewing the calendar and will update you here as soon as we have another date and time-slot.

A big congratulations to Southern Sporting’s own Greg Boyle. Winning the over 2L Slick class in the MRA SuperTT race series! It was a great year and it is fantastic to see him at the pointy end again in a super competitive car.
The earth shaking horsepower of these cars has to be felt in person! Congrats Greg Boyle, Endree Saade and Mark Boubib in taking out the Over 2litre Slicks class.

Look out for the season recap in the Nov/Dec Magazine.

A five car team from Southern Sporting Car Club will be participating in the NSW 6 Hour Event, to be run at Eastern Creek, this long weekend.
The regularity event will be holding practice today, with the six hour commencing at 09:00 Easter Sunday.
Members have travelled some distance to participate, with families putting Birthdays and Family get togethers on hold to attend.
UPDATE: 12:05 – Pracetice for the NSW6Hour is underway. Already the attrition is taking it’s toll with the Mustang stuck in third and done for the day.
Race Day – April 1
08:00 – Pit crew prep the cars while drivers are at the briefing
12:30 – At the three hour mark Brad Basset is completing his stint
It’s a hot track today and the drivers are finding it hard to keep their nominated time
David Livian started the runs for and heads out for the second stint.
16:30 – The day done, results are in, with Southern Sporting finishing in 23rd place. Not our best showing but a great day had by all
Update April 6: An adjustment made post race moved Southern Torque to 19th. This was due to an incorrect calculation being used calculating the finishing positions on the day.
