The second of the 3-round challenge. The contest this year between the clubs is really for second place as the MG club are dominating attendance.
The RCCV is currently lying in fifth place, however that’s likely due to a low turn out for the first round – we can do much better. We won the interclub challenge a few years ago so clearly we’ve got it in us!
So dust off your helmet, fit that extinguisher and get your entry in.

On the 28th June we had a drive day to Keith McIlroy’s at Buninyong to check out his car collection.
There were 18 members on the drive in 11 cars covering a wide variety of models. Tasmanian members Trevor and Deirdre Wise were included in the numbers.
A special thank you to Keith and his wife Jenny for making this possible along with some of their neighbours and with some Light Car Club of Ballarat members who brought along their cars and helped Keith on the day,
Photos of some of Keith’s cars and cars from the drive are here for your information (Thank you to Venus Lane for providing some photos).
Keith McIlroys at Buninyong (Ballarat)
Our drive day this month is to club member Keith McIroy’s house in Buninyong (Ballarat). Keith has an interesting car collection which he has agreed to show us. Whilst the majority are Renaults, there are some interesting additions.
We will be leaving from opposite Shell Spotswood (Cnr The Avenue and Williamstown Rd) at 9.00 am.
You will need to bring your own food and beverages for lunch. A barbecue will be available for use for those so inclined. It would also be a good idea to pack folding chairs.
A link to Google maps is below. A copy of the route instructions is also attached. We plan to stop for coffee at Meredith before continuing to Keith and Jennys .
For those interested we will also go for a run to Mt Buninyong lookout before proceeding home.
New club sporting competition for 2015
The club is introducing a annual sporting championship for club members. The competition is for a single ‘RCCV Sporting Champion’ across all sporting disciplines, be they hill climb, sprints, motorkhana or other.
The club doesn’t have the capacity to conduct competitive sporting events on it’s own so the championship is based on member’s results in events run by other clubs. Any CAMS affiliated club event in which a member participates in is eligible and members do not need to be competing in a full competition – for example, having a run at one of the Rob Roy Interclub Challenge hillclimb counts. It’s possible that singular success at a one-off event may trump a year’s effort in another competition if that resulted in little success.
The championship runs for a calendar year and ‘entry’ is automatic on entry into a CAMS club event anywhere in Australia. Competitors will need to provide advice of entry and results so we can maintain a tally. There’ll be a trophy and prize, and 2015 will be a trial year.
1 point for participation
3 points for 1st place, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd in class 10 points for an outright win at the event
Points will be based on the normal scoring method for that particular discipline of motor sport eg. Hillclimbs the fastest run is used and Motorkhanas the best elapsed time.
Contact Jeni Sammons (0401 243 062), Geoff Rasmussen (0419 357 509) or John Elliott (0409 906 108) for details.
