Masters/Old Farts Racing

Postby foo on patrol » Sun Apr 28, 2013 2:57 pm

Ok you old farts, can you tell me what distances the 60yr olds race over, for the pursuit, points score and any other hard race on the track please. :mrgreen:

I intend getting back to competitive racing by 60yrs of age and i want to get the State Title that escaped me in my younger days due to being hit by a truck. :evil:

My job at the moment, away all week in a truck, doesn't allow for any serious attempt to race or train but I have decided that, one way or another, I will be racing again in 4-5yrs time and look forward to inflicting pain on sprinters! :twisted:

The tech regs are available here.

I'm not sure but would assume Qld state events are in line with national tech regs. A quick check of their techn regs would confirm.
