Welcome to the website of the Brindabella Motor Sport Club - Rallying In The ACT
The BMSC is based in Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory. However, residence is not a prerequisite for membership - our members reside in all parts of the country. Although our members participate in many disciplines of motorsport, we are chiefly a rally oriented club and conduct several special stage rallys each year. Our members can be found at events of all levels across the country, from small club events, right up to the WRC (World Rally Championship).
The Supp Regs for the Narooma Forest Rally to be held 12 July 2014 have been released.
The event is Round 3 of the Techworkz Automotive ACT Regional Rally Series.
The total distance for the event is 314km including 120km competitive - 4 stages run twice. There will be a central Service Park in Narooma and 2 remote refuels (if needed)
Following the event there will be a presentation including dinner options at Club Narooma (across the road from the Service Park)
In addition, the organisers have offered competitors the opportunity to pace note this event - this will run as a separate group at the front of field provided we get enough interest, however these crews will not be eligible for ACT Series points or results. Officials will be conducting checks to ensure ACT Crews are not using pace notes.
We look forward to seeing a huge field return to some of the best roads Australia has to offer. Any questions about the event please let me know.
June BMSC General Meeting has moved venue, and for a good reason.
With recent changes to Helmet, Harness and Forward Head Restraint (FHR) regulations, the club has taken the opportunity to have an open discussion and make sure club members are informed about the changes.
Capital Steering and Suspension is very kindly hosting the evening at their premises (Unit 3/75 Wollongong St, Fyshwick).
We are encouraging club members to bring along their rally/race cars, as well as their helmets and any Frontal Head Restraint they may have.
We are planning on having a session explaining just what the regulation changes mean, as well as an open discussion about the pro's and cons of these devices.
We have invited Doug Wright (our resident para-medical expert) to provide his take on the injuries that these devices are trying to prevent, and his research into these devices and their implementation.
We have also invited V-Sport Canberra representatives to come along and provide information on FHR Devices, Helmets and other safety devices.
The plan is to finish with a session of test fitting the devices to help develop your own opinion.
