2016 Supersprint

Friends in Motorsport,

On behalf of Club VW Sydney I would like to extend to you and your fellow club members an invitation to attend our 8th Annual Supersprint in conjunction with the VW Nationals car show. The change of venue was a popular move last year so we return to Sydney Motorsport Park at Eastern Creek where we will again be utilising the Amaroo (south) circuit. The event will be held on Saturday 21st May 2016. All makes and models are welcome. VW group vehicles will receive preferential entry up to 11th April 2016 when entries will be in order of payment.
 
The event will be held under a CAMS event permit and follow the CAMS NSW guidelines for supersprints. For pre-entries received on or before May 14th 2015 the entry fee will be $170. Entries received after this date will incur $30 late fee and be accepted subject to organisers discretion.  Please accept our invitation to attend this event and could you kindly pass on the Supplementary Regs and Entry Forms to anyone who may wish to attend.
 
In closing could I also request that if any of your members who may wish to help out on the day and are CAMS qualified in the roles of flag marshals or scrutineer we would greatly appreciate any help that may be offered.

Scrutineering

Scrutineering is conducted on the morning of the event and the decisions of the officials are final.

**In an attempt to streamline the required vehicle checks, in 2016 we are trialing pre-scrutineering.  This will be held on the Saturday before the event at Vintage Vee Dub (Unit 1, 11B Harp Street, Campsie NSW 2194) on Saturday 14th May 2016 between 9:00am and 1:00pm.   Entrants who would like to avoid the wait on the morning  can come along and have their vehicles inspected the week before.  You should ensure that you also bring along your helmet as well as the clothing you intend to wear on the day.  Please contact Rudi Frank if you wish to attend on 0418 442 953.

NOTE:  All vehicles that are pre-scrutineered acknowledge that they may be requested to present their vehicles for additional scrutineering if directed by the officials on the day of the event.
