Hi everybody and welcome the Formula Vee Association of Victoria 2020.
A special welcome to our new members into the category Steven Devries, Gavin Hendrick, Winston Smith, Isaac Woodhouse, John Cassimaty and David Stuart. You have joined a great club, and we look forward to seeing you out there soon.
With 19 entries for the first round at Sandown, it’s shaping up to be another great year with a fantastic lineup. For me, 2019 ended on a high with the Island Magic presenting some of the best racing ever; not many categories that can claim the top seven (7) finishing within six (6) tenths.
To the outgoing committee members, thank you for all the work in 2019 and in particular our president of three (3) years, Nicholas Jones. Going into this year, we are in a great position, and I hope that we can continue with the great work.
We have a big year planned with our usual six (6) rounds following the VSCRC series as well as the Island Magic in November. Additionally, we will be hosting the National Challenge at the Island in September and while I haven’t yet had the opportunity to attend one yet I’ve only heard good things. This is sure to be one of the highlights this year.
From a committee perspective, while racing is still a top priority, building the club is still on the agenda, and we will continue with the good work over the last couple of years. Having 20+ race cars on the track is not only good for the category, it’s also more fun which to me is the whole point. Another technical day is in planning, and we are also looking to introduce some more social events. That said, we are always welcome to ideas so please feel free to reach out and share be it good or bad, ultimately it comes down to building a great club.
Good luck to all competitors this year, I wish you all a safe and competitive season, and I look forward to seeing you all soon at Sandown.
