24/10/15 Shannon’s Summer Race Meeting

A big well done and pat on the back to all officials and volunteers who worked at Shannon’s Summer Race Meeting this weekend at Barbagallo Raceway. The drivers certainly threw some curve balls (and tyre) our way but you were all up for the challenge. It’s always fantastic being a part of such a wonderful group of people. I pretty much say that every event but, working within different teams across my 15 years of officiating, working with my WA family of officials is always a pleasure.

Formula Fords, Formula Classic and F1000s had some seriously fast pace again, which made for some great racing. It was fantastic to see so many F1000s out yesterday. I hope the class continues to strengthen into 2016.

As always, Improved Production Racing Association of WA and WA Excel Cup put on a fantastic show and I hope Tim and Glen are okay. Hopefully see you all down in Collie on 8th November for your end of season sheep station battle.

Formula Vee Western Australia, what can I say? The racing was amazing all weekend. Close racing throughout the entire class and edge of your seat stuff between the lead four cars.

HQ Racing WA, you all certainly keep things entertaining on circuit and are very much a welcome sight at the end of the day. I’m sure I’m not the only one who looks forward to the end of day BBQ. A big thank you for giving up your time to feed the hungry hordes, service is always with a smile.

Last but certainly not least, WA Historic Touring Car Club. Another of the WA clubs who have gone above and beyond supporting us flaggies. Thank you to the drivers who have participated in the lunchtime meet and greets during the season, it has been great putting face to name and car and getting to know you all. Another thank you for Sunday’s breakfast, it went down an absolute treat. It is always a pleasure watching your races and this weekend was no different.

Circuit racing season is slowly drawing to an end with only two events left for the year. Will hopefully see everyone in Collie in a couple of weeks or at the enduro nightmasters a fortnight after that.

27/9/15 Nightmasters

Nightmasters events are always fantastic and last night was no different. Don’t think there were any officials who didn’t have something to do throughout the day/night, with everyone being kept busy. Awesome job done by everyone. Great working with you all again!

Fantastic racing put on by all competitors, Saloon Car Racing WA, HQ Racing WA, Formula Vee Western Australia, Improved Production Racing Association of WA, WA Excel Cup and Formula Fords. Street Car Racing Association WA combining with Super GTs certainly was certainly entertaining! Can’t wait til the next Nightmaster event that will include enduros!

Catch you all at the next event!

20/09/15 Italian Festival

Well what a fantastic day it turned out to be! Sunshine all day on freshly cleaned Italian beauties. There were vehicles on track from start to finish with both bikes and cars, and over 50 cars took part in the parade laps. We hope to attend again next year!

13/9/15 Collie

What a fantastic weekend of racing at Collie Motorplex with the Vintage Sports Car Club of WA‘s Coalfields 500 event. Yesterday, the weather was a tad rubbish. Today, it was dry but bitterly cold.

Officials, another awesome job where we managed to find half an hour both days to finish early with all events run. Well done! Hopefully you’re all now back home and warmed up.

Formula Vee Western Australia, Formula Classic, Group N/C Touring Cars and the regularity groups put on a fantastic show. Thank you very much for the great events!

Dani

5/9/15 Super Karts

A massive thank you to all the flaggies who came along to the Super Karts at Barbagallo Raceway. It was a really long day with some rubbish weather in the mix but a fantastic job done by all. Three events to go for the month. Catch you all in Collie or at Barbagallo at some stage over the month! – Dani

23/8/15 SETS Spring Meeting

Slightly delayed… In my tired stupor, I thought I’d already done this.

The weather was absolutely perfect for a day of racing and Day 2 threw as much action at us as Day 1 at the SETS Spring Race Meeting at Barbagallo Raceway. A lot of fantastic racing put on by Formula Vee Western Australia, Formula Ford, Formula Classic and F1000s.

Officials, no matter what is thrown at you, you always do an amazing job. Certainly some curveballs thrown into the mix but you all took it in your stride and got things done. Well done!

Busy month ahead. Will see some of you at Dirt Trackers Sunday 30 August, Super Karts Sunday 5 September, Coalfieds 500 12-13 September, Tuning Day 19 September, Italian Festival 20 September, Drifts 25-26 September and/or Nightmasters on 27 September. Plenty on!

Cheers

22/8/15 SETS Spring Meeting

Day 1 of the SETS Spring Race Meeting at Barbagallo Raceway and what a day! All officials were kept busy but what an amazing job you all did! Another day of fantastic racing put on by Improved Production Racing Association of WA, WA Excel Cup, Saloon Car Racing WA, Street Car Racing Association WA, WA Historic Touring Car Club and Super GT. Great job, guys and gals! Always keeping us officials on our toes.

26/7/15 Mid Year Race

Day 2 of the Mid Year Race Meeting certainly didn’t disappoint either! Very entertaining stuff from Saloon Car Racing WA, Formula Fords, Super GTs and Street Car Racing Association WA. Great racing from you all.

To the WA Historic Touring Car Club, not just fantastic racing, but a big thank you to your drivers who gave up their time to come for a meet and greet with the flaggies. It is certainly appreciated and it’s great to put a face to the name and car.

As always, officials and volunteers, awesome job! These guys and gals couldn’t race without you but we would certainly have very boring weekends without them.

Catch you all in August!

Dani

25/7/15 Mid Year Race

WOW! What an absolutely awesome day of racing today at Barbagallo Raceway! Formula Vee Western Australia, I think Race 3 summed today up nicely with 5 cars finishing within 0.21 seconds of each other. That battle was fantastic to watch! Three great races from all of you guys and gals! HQ Racing WA, all races were entertaining and I’m pretty sure we could see some of the grins on the faces of drivers through their helmets, looked like they were having a blast out there. F1000 and Formula Classic, it was great to see so many cars out there! Makes for some very interesting races.

A big THANK YOU to all officials who came out today! You are all amazing!

4/7/15 Collie

After a last minute call up, three of WFMA’s flaggies headed down to Collie Motorplex for a round of Super Karts. While numbers were low, the racing did not disappoint and some of those karts were very fast, with the fastest lap a 45.98s. If anyone has a chance to do one of these events in the future, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did. The day was absolutely fantastic and we were very well looked after! – Dani
