Sydney Edge Buggy Racing EOI

Postby BIRKO » Mon Aug 15, 2011 10:16 pm

Hi Guys

I am trying to find out how many buggies would be genuinely interested in proper off road racing at the SORRA club track under the TORC (link Below) rules used in Victoria. We would need to know how many buggies are ready to go (with only minor mods to meet specs) and how may are due to be completed in the very near future. The opportunity may arise in the very near future to race under these conditions under the SYDNEY MINI BUGGY CLUB (SMBC) but piggy backed off the SORRA club meets as an "Edge Class" type race. As the club and support grows SMBC will eventually look to hold its own events at the SORRA track. This will be put to the SORRA Club members during their next meeting on the 24th of this month which i will be attending as a representative of the SMBC club. Obviously if we can show that we have a good number of buggies ready to go and willing to make the necessary minor modifications to meet TORC racing specs the better the chance we have of SORRA accepting our request. It would also be good to see some of the mini buggies enthusiasts show up to the SORRA club meeting to affirm our support for this going forward and show that it isn’t just me wanting to race.

If SORRA does vote in our favour there would be the possibility of racing by the end of the year, a great warm up for the following year. Guys this is a real opportunity with a great club but without the support of everyone it won't go anywhere. So tell everyone that owns an edge buggy, is ready to buy an edge buggy or is just about to finish their build. Send emails, msg's and text's to anyone who has ever previously shown interest cos i know that there has been a lot in the past but it has gone a little quiet in lately.

If you are genuinely interesetd please post name, type of buggy and contact details. This post will also appear on the SORRA website.

hey daniel,

looking at what ive got on i should be able to come with you to sorras gerneral meeting.

il also look at khanacrosses for mini buggies which is kinda what we are already doing, just not being timed/classed etc..

but of course edge buggies are needed as that is what our driving force will be in order for proper racing.

mick, next meet further north? not sure what u mean? sorras next meet is in november i think 3rd week, its a state round and very busy, could bring our buggies but being a final round in the nsw championship they have priority.

anyhow il do some more researching on the specials used in khancross etc in awaba and hill district car club as they run vehicles that i am unsure of being cams roll cage approved but pass for safety etc.

cheers, cam

Hi guys, I am keen, I have been sitting back watching to see if the club got off the ground but I suppose if I dont stand up and be counted and everyone else does the same the club will fold

Hi Daniel, count me in, although it will maybe June 2012 until my build is complete. The idea of SMBC as a stand alone club is a great idea, but I guess we need more members & volunteers. Piggybacking on SORRA events may have to do for the short to medium term.

cheers

Ray, just a quick question unrelated to the thread, how much does your trailer weigh & does it have brakes ?

I 'm about to register a ex racers unit & I'm worried about it's weight.

cheers Chris

Sorry not sure how much it weighs, it was a trailer used for carrying scaffold, I brought it then modified it. It doesn't have brakes and my tow vehicle is a Nissan 4wd so it stops pretty well but brakes wouldn't go astray.
