    Default Ampol Rerun

    The Ampol Rerun for April 2006 is progressing well with a major sponsor getting ready to sign up.
    We have around 50 entries at present and have around 7 spots left for the touring event. Entrants in this division will not take part in the competitive sub events but will still be booked in and out of controls and scored on the open road sections, entry fee for this is $1000.
    Plenty of places left for the competitive entrants, entry fee is $2300, and there are plenty of hill climbs, autocrosses, motorkhanas and road events to keep people busy.
    The motorsport element is at club level and we have set the event up so that you won't need roll cages or expensive equipment.
    I am just about to head off for the week to set the route in South Australia, I did NSW just after Christmas, and if the SA section is as good as this we will be in for a great 4 weeks!
    This event is for Peugeots (being the 50th anniversary of the 403 win in 1956) and other notable cars of the 1950s and 60s.

    Any Chrysler Royals going?

    I saw the DVD of the Ampol trials the other day... I have to say that Hal Maloney's input really showed through in that... and the old Royals were pretty apparent.

    None yet, though we have two Simcas (same factory in Australia) amd hoping to get the 1934 Airflow back. After all, this car competed in 1956 as well as 1953.

    Graham,
    Advise the Simca entrants to modify [raise] the rear shock absorber lower mounts and fit sump guards.

    Is the Chrysler Airflow out to win the "Most Popular Entry" again??

    I was hoping for the People's Choice award in my DS. I sure as hell won't be on the motorsport podium as fastest car!

    But seriously, it would be great to have Helen and the Airflow along again. Both characters!

    Cheers, Pottsy

    I won't be contacting him for a while yet, still got to do the Queensland Route Survey. After the route has been set there will be a lot of phone calls to be made and Emails to be sent!
    I have just returned from SA and the event is shaping up extremely well.

    BLAST!! I've been sprung again. Jack's tips were resurected in an early copy of "Swallow Tales" the Simca Car Club of Aus. magazine.

    I think my comment about the "Airflow" fronting up for the "Most popular competitor" went through to the keeper. Most AFers wouldn't have been born back then.

    Ray, sent you a message but it mustn't have come through.
    Would the Hal Maloney you mentioned be the same bloke that lived in Swansea N.S.W. when in his early twenties and raced an Anglia. He later crossed the Simpson Desert in A Colt?

    What will the stop-over or what-ever it is to be at the showgrounds in Mt.Gravatt, Brisbane be all about. My father-in-law is on the Trust committee there and told me someone had been in touch about booking the grounds.

    The stop over will be just a public display as the cars arrive, book into the passge control and leave after 20 minutes or so. The control point will be open for 2 to 3 hours, mid afternoon.

    Are there any entry spots left in the touring section and would it be possible to get some information on entering.
