What a start to the 2021 Racing Year. To say it all happened all day would be a massive understatement. A huge THANK YOU to each and every Official for your time yesterday. Many thanks to the Flaggie team. I heard some great things about a couple of new recruits. Thank you to the 3 Formula Ford guys for coming and working hard. Even thank you to the 3 Flaggies who went to the Fire Crew for the day. Sorry there was an incident that required your services, especially on the back of 3 during Saturday’s tuning Day. Even thank you to the young Official who brought a hot cup of Tea in the afternoon…oh wait, that didn’t happen. See you in 4 weeks for Nightmasters…Nathan Green will be the CFM. And yes those ^$^(*& photographers got me again! – Pete M
Thank you for your efforts in 2020. It was very, very challenging at times. Thank you to everyone who got soaked on Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. Please accept this as my personal thanks to you for all your efforts in 2020 and I hope to see you in 2021.
Good news! As of today we have moved out of the trusty old shed and into the old admin building (as you come into the raceway, its the first building on the left. Parking for officials is still on the grassed area as you come in on the left. The move means more space including training area, more covered areas and air con!!
Good news! The new date has been set for October 30 – November 1 (day events) for Supercars! This is always subject to change still so keep an eye out on the Supercars.com website for further updates. We are looking to be on track so to speak for a WASCC June 21 return to racing.
Hi Everyone, as you most would be aware a lot of events have been either cancelled or postponed. WA Sporting Car Club events have been cancelled until late June, and the Supercars event has been postponed until later in the year. See the promotors respective websites or facebook pages for any updates.
Just wanted to say an enormous thank you to all the flaggies who turned up on what was a fairly horrendous stinking hot day. By 11am it was over 34C but Arnold and Glen decided flag point 8 was still too cold so started their own little bonfire. Peter and Stephen took home the most reports award from flag point 4 of all places thanks mainly to excels being, well, excels. Nathan and Ray decided to park the car, which lapped the entire field in the first 15 minutes of the enduro, in the sand 3 laps from the end. We had a BMW randomly stopping at various parts of the circuit, Ken and Dennis did a fantastic job with blue flags in pit lane and simultaneously managing turn 1, while Pete Warrener and Jaimee executed the perfect gender reveal! It was a short day but you all did a really amazing job in really trying conditions. Thank you so much to each and every one of you, and I look forward to seeing you all again next year! (and Stephen K is clearly a better driver than me as he didn’t even crash the bus this event!) – James H
What an amazing weekend of motorsport! Nothing short of eventful, but very entertaining racing on track. A huge thank you to the always fantastic officials for two huge days in trying weather. Thank you to everyone involved in a beautiful dedication to a true gentleman of the sport, Rob Janney. A huge thank you to everyone who played a part in today’s events. Nothing we do will ever repay what Rob has done for the club and the sport and, again, we say thank you for all you’ve done.
A massive thank you to all WFMA Flaggies and all officials for your efforts during the Pirtek Perth Supernight. It was challenging, exciting and so much more all at the same time.
I was particularly impressed with our newest officials and with the YO program. Great job to all involved – Dani
What a weekend of motorsport at Barbagallo Raceway! Firstly, a huge congratulations to WA Sporting Car Club
for an amazing event very worthy of the 50th anniversary of the track.
The new surface sounds like it’s a winner for everyone, with lap records
falling everywhere so it will be very interesting to see how far they
fall in the coming months as the track starts gripping up more. The
facilities, surrounds and track look absolutely amazing. There was a ton
of work done over the off-season and it certainly paid off. Well done to the Committee and staff, it definitely didn’t go unnoticed.
Next to the drivers, many of you certainly kept the officials busy but
well done on driving hard and providing fantastic entertainment for the
crowd that came in over the two days. Thank you to everyone who competed
over the two days across all the classes, HQ Racing WA, Saloon Car Racing WA, Formula Vee Western Australia, Formula Classic WA, WA Formula Ford, Aus F1000, WA Excel Cup, Improved Production Racing Association of WA, Street Car Racing Association of WA, Sports Cars, Sports Sedans, Historic Touring Cars and Time Challenge. Hopefully no one has been forgotten!
Last but definitely not least, the officials. You guys and gals, thank you!!!!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Holy smokes, weren’t you all tested over the two days and you all got
the job done! There were a number of oil clean ups, cars going where
they shouldn’t, Saturday’s very windy conditions being very testing,
Sunday’s hot weather making life very trying for everyone, officials and
drivers alike, but the amazing group of officials banded together and
got on with getting every event run (and it was a hugely ambitious
schedule for the two days!!!!). Congratulations to each and every
official for their part in making this weekend the success it was.
So starts the 2019 race season and, if this weekend is just the start, it’s going to be a great year of circuit racing!
