have to bring the young bloke down - when he was a 2 year old the only thing he would watch was On Any Sunday and his favourite bit was when Dave threw it away at the Sacramento Mile; was always kind of funny, really like the music, the movie was on a constant loop at our house for a good couple of years. We still have a family laugh about that.
today in a discussion about modern MX or even a fair chunk of the old stuff I would back my 14 year old in a quiz any day. He has his eyes on my TM125 when he turns 16 - don't panic - he isn't a racer but a fitter kid I have never seen.

Great news, we have secured the naming, Australian Classic Dirt Track Masters. And we currently negotiating with DAVE ALDANA (On Any Sunday fame) and PAUL COVERT (Pro Vintage Expert) to race in Griffith on September 10/11 2016.
The meeting promising to be bigger than Ben Hur!
We have secured Dave Aldana, still running a raffle to help with expenses on Australian Classic Dirt Track on FB. It will be an autographed framed picture of the man specially for the winner! Only $5.

if the "masters "are run per the GCRs there is no difference between that event and the Australian Championships. One is an Australian Championship and one isn't is the only difference.
That said the comment that the Club has greater control speaks volumes. If you run the meeting to the GCRs then one meeting should run exactly the same as the next and the clubs control is dictated by the rules anyway. Will wait to see the GCRs. 2010 was a great meeting, great track so if run like that it will be an event to attend - shame it cant be an Au title.

To my knowledge and please correct me there would be several reasons.

1.  The permit is cheaper and it is my understanding that because the club probably would want to run Classic and Post Classic. MA would want double the permit fee.
2.  If the club runs it through MNSW there is no interference from the MA or the commission.

Last two years the Australian Classic Dirt Track Championship has failed to achieve the numbers to justify the MA expenses ie around $6k for permits and the Australian Championship events require an ambulance on site (hourly rate around the $200 mark). These running costs have made the Championship unviable.
We hope to pick up the pieces and run the "Masters" in its place, our club has a good number of Classic competitors and are keen to have a ride with all the classes under the GCR's, really only a numbers game, we cannot afford the Championship but we can the "Masters".
I also feel personally that we (Classics) deserve Championship status as the number of riders entered at the failed attempts surpassed the Senior Champs. We want to run our event along the lines of the Bathurst Masters, where they get more riders and have greater status than the Australian Track Championship.

modern dirt track is the same, the Troy bayliss classic has more prestige than the aussie tittles

Thanks for the support fellas, our FB page "Australian Classic Dirt Track" has ran a raffle to raise monies to get David Aldana here for the Masters. Purple Dave instigated it, the prize being a autographed picture of Dave Aldana, We have been overwhelmed with support, the Jerkyls with a great offer and all the usual classic dirt track supporters. We are negotiating with several USA riders and looks very likely we will have them here.
