President's Report - February 2015

  Hello and welcome to 2015.

   Firstly I would like to welcome our new major sponsor in MDS PerformanceMDS Performance 
is owned by Paul Thomson who is a 2 Litre club member and competitor.

  Paul carries a huge range of spare parts for your road car and your race car so have look
at his website and familiarize yourself with the range of products that he stocks. 

  We also need to thank Stuckeys Tyre Service, Coxys Motorsport spares and Activity Playgrounds
for their continued support.

  I would also like to thank George Thyssen of Polymech for his contribution to the club
over the last couple of years
, his knowledge of plastics is first class so give him a call 
if you need anything in the area of 
pouring or machining plastics, Polycarbonate or fibre glass.

On the sporting front you will find the calendar elsewhere in the website with the first round
at Winton on  March 7 & 8also There are several 2 Litre sports sedans for sale in Victoria
at the moment so if you or a friend want to get on track and experience this great class, 
now is the time to act, There are also some cars that haven't been seen for a while having some 
upgrades and they will appear in due course, These include the Ex Peter Ruyg Datsun 1600 and
the Ex Kevin Roberts Gemini, I have seen some recent photos of the Gemini and the standard 
of fabrication is very high.
The committee together with a couple of general members have been working hard over 
recent months to raise the profile of the club, Our website is constantly evolving to make
it more informative & easier to navigate, so if there is something else you like us to include 
then talk to one of the committee membersOur YouTube channel is growing so if you have
some footage you would like to share, contact myself or Lee Uhlhorn, Our Facebook page is 
also growing and is a regular source of information. 

We are in the process of organising promotional material to be distributed at car shows and 
competitive events to raise our profile and we are updating our Garage boards (A boards) to
encourage people to come in and talk to us about our cars and our club.
The club is creating a register of cars that have competed in our club over the years and 
we are trying to identify & contact the current owners to hopefully bring some of these cars 
out of the garage & back on the track, We want to maintain contact with these people and 
promote 2 Litre sports sedans even if they want to do sprints or hill climbs and not 
circuit racing at this time.
Lastly, everybody is welcome to come to our general meetings held at the Tower Hotel 
686 Burwood Rd Hawthorn East, Meetings are on the first Tuesday of the month and
start at 8.00 pm but why not come earlier for a meal.
