A Final Farewell For John Strech.

July 28, 2017

John Crawford Strech: An unusual farewell Your help is requested. Sometimes the Car Club is the only family we have. This is obviously the case with John Strech. John was a keen rally driver and member of the Ballarat Branch of the Light Car Club of Australia. John was born on 6th May 1927 and was killed in a road traffic collision on 7th August 1977. He had no immediate family and his ashes have lain unclaimed at FW Barnes and Son for the last 41 years! A friend of his, Ian Jetsom, has discovered this fact, and traced a relative in WA who has authorised the release of his ashes. Ian is organising a convoy from FW Barnes and Son at 9:30 am Wed 2nd of August to Naringal Homestead (about 6Km South of Cape Clear)...

RXAus Winton

July 24, 2017

Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th of July seen the first running of RXAus rallycross championship run in Victoria. BLCC were well represented over the weekend. Darren Windus and Jamie Sargent in AWD class : Arron Windus and Richard Gay in the two wheel drive class.

Saturday started late due to the thick fog around the Winton track. With a quick practice which seen Arron Windus and his Mazda only complete 2 laps due to a misfire , Richard Gay found it tough going in his Nissan Poosa circuit car. The dirt section of the track cut up a bit rough due to the rain during the week. Darren Windus and Jamie Sargent seemed to come to grips with their toys for the weekend.

Saturday Practice 2WD

Eclipse Ford/Pedders Ballarat 2017 Daryl Tunbridge/R4S Trial

June 24, 2017

BLCC’s recent commitments to local rally action have been huge with the Begonia last November, our ARC commitments for the Eureka Rally in March and our own Tunbridge Trial along with our Rallying for Steve Novice Trial. Three rallies in 6 months was not something that BLCC planned for last year. When applying in July to host this year’s Tunbridge, the Eureka Rally was several months from being confirmed in the Australian Rally Championship. While our club was delighted to assist with the running of a “local” ARC Round, we knew that our resources would be stretched for it and the Tunbridge nine weeks later. We did consider applying for the Tunbridge to be re-scheduled, but dismissed that due to the high risk of losing our grass-roots event...

BLCC Autocross Round 4

June 24, 2017

Round 4 of the BLCC Autocross series took place on the 28th of May and aside from some rain, produced a fine day for racing. Paul Gladman directed the event while Bernie Gladman provided a wonderful Diner full of food to keep the hungry masses fed. The course was run backwards with the full track in use for the first time in what felt like ages with a nice chicane on the front straight to throw an extra challenge into the mix. Our in-field officials braved the rain and wind to keep the cones upright and thanks must be given to them with Martin Cassar, Wayne Holness, Barney Haddon and Michele Bayley all spending time on the infield along with Rudi Simonis who came along to help too...

BLCC Khanacross Round 2

June 24, 2017

Rob Prosser has been involved in Motorsport for a while now and though it borders on sacrilege it could be said that Rob makes a Khanacross that’s as good as one of Richard Gay’s famed events. Full of fast tests that threw challenges at you no matter which way you attacked them, it was a testament to the work that went into planning the Khanacross and, as said before, you just couldn’t ask for a better day to race. With Damian Faulkner now free from running his Motorkhana that morning, he and Colin Faulkner took their Laser 4WD into the battle, unsurprisingly coming out as the fastest Laser in the event, while Rod Hall managed to beat Paul Gladman by a few milliseconds to take fastest non 4WD in the field...

BLCC Motorkhana Round 2

June 24, 2017

On a very cold Sunday morning, a small but competitive field prepared for what turned into a challenging and fun day’s racing due to a Motorkhana and a Khanacross run on the same day. Yes it was cold early, but the sun was shining and no rain to be seen.

Documentation and Scrutineering got underway, the tests were set, timers were ready and the games began (sorry, serious competition commenced). Six tests were run, all in a forward direction (to the relief of the competitors) and the best attempt of 2 would count towards the results. The weather was fine with little wind (to the relief of the timers). Gears were meshed, clutches abused, handbrake cables stretched and tyres were shredded...
