    for the first ever nationals i thought the club and aarmacc did a great job
    i thought every one chipped in and made it a great event that was enjoyable to race at
    i think the only thing that was let slide was there was pretty much zero tech
    i was un aware of a tech director
    people were able to fill there own fuel quantity completely unsupervised
    there was no engine checking
    no car weighing
    basically no tech
    this was the one area i though things slipped
    i look forward to next years nationals and hope its not in the stinking summer heat

    As a competitor – I reckon that AARCMACC race director did a great job. QORLS organizers have learned a lot from this experience.

    As member of the QORLS committee – we had no idea what to expect. We paid a lot of money for an AARCMACC race director. I personally expected much more, as he has had a lot of experience in this kind of events -we received a check list with guide lines as to this event on the 18/11/2012. Five days before the event. We booked him in May 2012. QORLS is a non profit club and run by volunteers. Some of us took time off work to organize this event.

    We wrote a numbers of emails to AARCMACC - with no response. In my personal point of view, Check list 5 days before the event is not good enough. We paid for a professional and received an amateur with zero people handling skills.

    Over all I thing the event was a success.

    Hey guys, I had a great time back in racing after a while off. It was great to be back in Brisbane with the boys at QORLS, I have raced there about 5 times now and it has always been great.

    The event itself, being the first of its kind at a national level was run well, of course there were a few things that could be done better next time but its a learning curve for a growing club.


    Thanks to all the sponsors, and Wayne from Aussie Hobbies for helping me out with a part free of charge, and Dean Roworth of NSW who also helped me out with a part after a breakage during a heat (event though we were in the same heats).


    Queensland's LS offroad racing scene is getting better by the week, and I look forward to getting back up there for another event soon


    Cheers guys,
    Julian
