This evening, the following members of the Tarmac JDP attended the Child Safe Officer Course run by the Office for Recreation and Sport. The Tarmac JDP is committed to promoting the well-being and safety of all participants as well as creating a supportive and fun environment for everyone to enjoy motorsport!
We are a child safe club! ?
Lisa and James and the three JDP cars. Great day overall. All 3 crs were able to driven back onto the trailers at the end of the day. Thanx for all the help from the JDP support team – Duane Gent, Andrew Baohm, Colin & Susan Margaret and Karl Fleming while I was stuck at a flag point. You guys are Champions!
Lisa and Jame drove well all day and could see the improvement with each heat. Good to see Helen from the 2012 JDP at her first Sprint event.
Scottie (Silver) had a good shake down, just the rear brakes need looking at. Cooper (Red) had a near perfect maiden run. Lucas (White car on the right) however lost some power at the end of the day.
Next sprint events are
19th JULY M.S.C.A. MALLALA SUPER SPRINT SERIES RD 3
16th AUG M.S.C.A. MALLALA SUPER SPRINT SERIES RD 4
27th SEPT M.S.C.A. MALLALA SUPER SPRINT SERIES RD 5
It may be worth while inquiring to became a MSCA member if you are planning to do multiple sprints for the discounted entry fee.
With the motor issues with Scottie, it was more ecomical at the time to purchase a complete car. With help from Peter Tann, Karl & James Fleming, the car is almost complete.
We have also sourced a replacement engine for Scottie during the week from Wills Auto Parts near Gawler. If you require any parts for a Korean made car, it would pay to pay them a visit.
