Dipping a toe in water

If you ever wanted to try racing, why not think about getting a 3 Race Licence.  It's a great way to try racing without the full cost of getting a race licence.  Each 3 Race Licence cost $55, is valid for 3 months from the first event you enter, and can be use to enter any non-state open event, ie club, interclub racing.  And then if wish to purchase a full 2011 race licence $55 will be discount from total price.   If you're interested, please contact club Membership Officer Callum Dwyer at callumdwyer@yahoo.com.au
