Report on the Event
In June, it was our turn to once again provide Flag Marshalls for round 2 of the MSCA Supersprint at Mallala. On this occasion we were rostered to share duties with the Alfa Romeo and Mercedes Benz Clubs.
Sincere thanks not only to our regular volunteers but also to Club Committee Members – David Low and Hans Oldenhove who joined in and shared responsibilities on the day with Tom Sweeney and Kym Boxall. From all accounts it was a thoroughly enjoyable day with some of the volunteers also enjoying laps in their MX-5s during the lunch break.
As an enticement to future volunteers, Hans said that his laps at Mallala were the most fun he’s had in his MX-5 – ever!!
The Motorsport group would like to especially acknowledge Kym Boxall’s mates Graham Trenwith & Graham Hancock. Neither are MX-5 Club members but they nevertheless travel regularly from Moonta (as does Kym) just to help out. Graham Trenwith suffered a heart attack prior to the 6 Hour Event in May, but in spite of that returned to flag Marshalling in June!! Such is the mateship camaraderie of motorsport. We wish you continued good health Graham T and to both of you offer our sincere gratitude and thanks.
