    Nice. Do you have a dial in? Or just run as fast as you can? I wish we had that here in Northern California.

    we hold the rope , then a yellow light comes on for 25sec then gos out then the yellow light comes on again for 5sec then the count down from 9-0 you have about 8meters in front of you till you brake the start beam so u have to time it right so when it got to 5 on the count down i floored it and that works out about right for you reaction time , this system works well imo , then flat out till the end of the quater

    we raced like that back in 2000, on ultra 150 LOL lots of fun. I used to have some of those old time slips somewhere. we were running 73 or so. I got beat by 100th of a second by an ultra 150 that I built. Lots of fun. In the lower class I guess stock cant rember long time ago.we cleaned up. I even won money like 5 or 6 hunred dollars or something. in a couple of years was running 80 on the 150

    we also get more pionts in qualifying for better r/t's so if your ski is not the fastess but allday u got better r/t's then you can still win . but the fastess ski still got a huge advantage

    It was a great fun event guys... For a over controlled state like in Victoria, its great to finally have some jetski racing back...

    The next event is being held on the 24th FEB. As posted in OZPWC.

    The following is as posted in OZPWC:

    Location:
    Patterson Lakes National Watersports Center

    Next meetings scheduled:
    24th FEB 2013 (Sunday), 24th MAR 2013 (Sunday).

    Cost:
    1 off day cost $50.
    Yearly membership: TBA

    What to bring:
    -Jetski in safe working order
    -Life jacket
    -Helmet
    -'Long johns' wetsuit as minimum, full length ok. Or Race pants (No shorts)
    -Closed shoes, either wet type or dry. No thongs or bare feet.
    -PRE FILLED FORMS FOR NEW ENTRANTS. Please call me on 0417550418 to get a form (Needs to be pre-filled at least 48hrs prior to race and emailed in)

    Scruteneering aspects:
    -Ski MUST have a kill switch lanyard
    -Ski MUST have an external exhaust to hull
    -Ski MUST have a fuel cell which is attached to the hull and closed with a vent pipe.
    -Ski MUST have nylock as a minimum for steering and VTS components. Double nut is even better.
    -Ski MUST be structurally ok. No structural cracks in bottom 1/2 of hull.
    -Intake grate must be secured
    -Steering and reverse (if installed) must be secured
    -Must not have oil leaks external to hull

    Any other suggestions for scruteneering please reply to this post with your suggestion. This can be raised at the meeting.

    Safety aspects:
    -Keep mindful of your wake, especially when the HYDRO's are in the water.
    -At the bottom end of the track, feel free to have a bit of fun, within reason and always ALWAYS keep an eye for oncoming boats along the drag strip... Some of them do 200 kmh+ and may take up to an additional 600m to come to a stop...
    -Stay behind the 1000m marker when waiting at the end of your run at the bottom end of the track.
    -Remember, you are representing jetski'ers in general in front of 100's of people... You are the example. If its something stupid, don't do it here.
    -No alcohol permitted before/during... You may get breathalized.
    -Keep smokers and open flames away from pit area.



    If you want to come to the next meet and haven't filled out paperwork, please call me on 0417550418 or text me a request for the paperwork (with your email address) and I'll text you an email address to send them to.



    If you want to change/discuss any of the above, please do so. We have a clean slate to work with...
    I enquired about SLALOM on the track and it is not possible with the current setup. We may need to work with the club for a seperate event if ever a timed slalom will be possible...

    Cheers
