Kemp, Smith receive dirt circuit life memberships

About 60 members and their families attended the Arno Bay Dirt Circuit’s annual general meeting and end of year presentations at Rehn’s Raceway earlier this month.

Peter Darling (AB36) raced excellent this year taking out first for open wheelers with 136 points and the Cliff Harris Memorial Trophy and an extremely close second on 132 points was Taj Lear (AB352).

Ian Ellis (W50) took out first for street stock with 146 points and Arno Bay’s Club Champion trophy.

After a year off and a few problems over the past few years, Tom Harris finally took out first for modified.

The Harris boys did an outstanding job this season with, Tom first, Hayden second and Shane third.

Kate Morgan (W180) took out first for ladies with 144 points and only 13 points behind was Chloe  Chenoweth (AB115).

With the ladies class only running for two years, it is great to see the numbers for this group increasing.

This year the club had a new award, Club Person of the Year, which was given to Brian Stringer for his organisation with managing the track for this season’s racing and state titles held in March.

Jack Grainger was presented with the Rookie of the Year award for improvement in his racing development in such a short period of time.

The Dipstick Award was awarded to Mark Baldock for his mishaps over the 2017 racing season.

Arno Bay Dirt Circuit Club life memberships were presented to Claire Kemp and Bronte Smith for their dedication and hard work over the many years of their involvement in the club.

The club thanked all its sponsors for the 2017 race season and looks forward to seeing everyone all in the New Year.
