MG Club Challenge @ The Bend - Sun 10 Jun 2018 - Webmaster MX5sa

Report on the Event

Our club was recently invited to participate in the MG Club Challenge Supersprint at the newly opened “The Bend” motorsport complex - which is located just east of Tailem Bend. The event was hosted by the MG Car Club as part of their Interstate Challenge. There were entries from a number of interstate visitors including one from Kim Cole (MX-5 Victoria) in his extremely fast supercharged NB MX-5. Many will remember Kim as the recipient of the fastest time of the day award which resulted from his efforts at the Collingrove Hillclimb event that was staged as part of NatMeet 2018.

The Bend lived up to its reputation as a world class, state of the art venue. Drivers were impressed with the racing circuit and spectators enjoyed watching the event from the comfort of the viewing area that is located on the 4th floor of the Rydges Hotel complex (accessible by lift). We provided a number of flag marshals on the day and were later rewared with a “thank you”dinner that was hosted by the MG Car Club in their Bowden Club Rooms. A nice and much appreciated gesture.
