WHAT IS THE HRA OF WA
the HRA you ask? What will the HRA do? Who will run the HRA? Well all
good questions and really how, what and when the HRA does anything is
entirely up to membership. The meetings are to bring all together to
decide what as a group, the HRA can and will do. There are certainly no
definitive answers to these questions, its more the case of uniting all
with an interest in Historic Motor Racing and obtaining their wishes
and desires. Those involved can bring to the forefront their objectives.
The situation as it stands now is, that the HRA has loosely operated as
a group of interested people without any formal structure for more
than eight years, it has communicated amongst its associates,
matters relating to encouraging participants to go motor racing with
historic vehicles. This will be of course a primary objective, as
without active competition, there is no Historic Motor Sport and to
grow the sport there needs to be more participation.
It is of course envisaged that most participants will be members of a
club that promotes the sport, that may be the WASCC or the VSCC or any
number of the one make clubs like the MGCC or TSOA. That pretty much
covers all competitors, but what about the remainder of the people who
participate in Historic Racing? The officials, the photographers, the
pit crews and families? They do a tremendous amount for the sport and
are rarely recognized or thanked for there tireless efforts, surly they
can have a say and are a valuable resource to be listened to.
Its not a case for abandoning membership of your special interest club
or group, “it is as well as” the membership will be a nominal cost of
$30 and members who compete will be able to compete under its name in
much the same way that you compete for a club now, except that you will
be representing Historic Motor Sport in WA in much the same way that
many have informally over the last 8 years.
Members currently not competing will be encouraged to race or will act
to encourage and assist others to make the step to motor racing, so if
you have any experience in the sport, you are most welcome to attend
and assist. It is people that have been there and done it that the
association needs, those who can help others get to the track and keep
them racing safely and most importantly enjoying the sport.
What else can the association do, well it can if it chooses to put its
shoulder to the wheel and help event promoters with their events, It
can if it chooses to negotiate on behalf of competitors with the event
promoters, it can also choose to partner with promoters to arrange
events, it would be envisaged that it can and would negotiate with
competitors from overseas and interstate to come and experience
Historic Motor Racing in WA.
