RZR Polaris Championship
The Club has been approached to assist in the running of the 2016 RZR Polaris Championship, this being it’s second year. In 2015, 4 members assisted in the “local” events however due to the calendar they will not be available for all events in 2016.
The Club has about 20 members competing in the championship out of the 50ish competitors. As can be seen from the dates below 4 rounds are interstate, one being Albury so close enough to “local”. Consideration will be given to travel and accommodation by the organisers on a per event basis especially for events that are obviously a long way from home.
For this to happen the Club needs to commit to providing the numbers for all events. The duties as performed last year could be considered akin to a start control. 2 people wrangling the competitors from the pits to the holding area, 1 sorting them on the start line, the other starting them. Timing is done automatically from a central location.
So what is the event? It is 20 to 30 competitors in Polaris RZR side by side buggies running in heats for 4 or 5 laps around a motorcross track. From the start line you can see about 75%. For more information and a view of the videos have a look at www.rzrracing.com and on Facebook Polaris RZR Australian Championship.
Could you please have a look at the dates and if available and are prepared to commit to 1 or all events to support your fellow club members competing in the championship let the committee know. We require a minimum of 4 people and a max of 6 to make these events run smoothly. If you are interested and definitely can commit then reply to the committee otherwise we will only support the local state based events (VIC).

The short time frame for replies is unfortunate but the organisers need a timely response as there is only about 6 weeks to the first event.
