Letter from The President, September 2017
To all FPV Tickford Club of NSW Members.
So today is the first day of Spring, bring on the longer days and warmer weather,
thanks goodness !
So, the Supercar season is now onto the three endurance races and we are strong in
the Championship but with not a great lead in the pointscore. We are without a doubt
competitive though, and it’s an old adage, but it’s ours to lose……
August was another strong month for the Club.
The weekend of 19/20 August was our supporting display for the Supercar round at
Sydney Motorsport Park. We had almost 30 cars in attendance, and thanks to Ben
Schibeci and all that helped on the day, organising the transportation of equipment,
the displays and shade houses.
On August 27, we supported two events. The annual Fords in the Park at Minchinbury
was supported officially by the Club, and had a good turnout. On the same day at
Penrith we supported a mixed show again at Penrith Paceway, which also had a good

The social night at McCredies will be on Tuesday September 5. This was originally
going to be the night of our Annual General Meeting, but uie to some technical issues
with Club emails and website, we have had to postpone this to the October night
which will be October 3. Emails advising this have already gone out as will a new
request for nomination forms. You will receive sms reminders on both of these nights
well in advance.
Paceway and Cars was again the success it deserves to be, and will be on again on
September 10. This event is always an enjoyable one.
On to the rest of September.
Mario Attard has already circulated details, but in summary:
Saturday September 9 will be a short cruise followed by dinner at the popular
Talotta’s Pizza at Kurnell. Reserve the date, advise Mario, and enjoy a relaxed night.
Sunday September 17 will be the annual Lugarno Spring Fair. Again, please advise
Mario and Craig of your intention to attend.
