2008 Melways Meander

Round 1 of the HRA Touring Championship - Sunday 13th April 2008

"Run and Won - See attachment for Results"

Ladies team up to win!  Officer and Cole take first place.

The first round of this year's Touring Championship will be a short event with relatively easy navigation - a great way to start the Touring year. 

The intended event start is at a McDonald’s Restaurant in the Eastern Suburbs.  The first car will start at 9.30 and is due to finish 4 hours later.

The event will be run in one division. A stop for a coffee break for those who have time has been allowed for. The cost of lunch will not be provided by the organisers. The selected finish location has reasonably varied menu for a reasonable price and is licensed.

The first car is due to finish around 1.45pm.

Competitors can expect a compact event with relatively easy navigation. (Where relevant supplied Melway maps may be used). Map plotting will be required and a number of different navigational techniques will need to be used to correctly traverse the route (e.g. stick charts and accurate map scaling). Odometer readings will not be taken at the start as older vehicles delete travelled distance when reversed and most modern vehicles add distance.

The roads we have selected for the Event are varied. We have set the route to run over mainly bitumen with some gravel roads so competitors can bring out their toys. Normal road cars will find the route quite acceptable, the lavish use of redirection boards should ensure that no grotty tracks need to be used.

Further details will be included in the further instructions and information updated on this page and the HRA e-group.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
Tom Latta & crew.
