Congratulations on Dave (the hat) Smart voted in as the new NAST Chairman. Peter Harrison carries on his role as Technical Officer and is also now responsible for merchandise. Yvonne Mott and Robbie Dobbie retain their current posts.
With 5 meetings at Santa Pod and 2 at Shakespeare County Raceway it was decided that the 5 best results from 7 rounds would count towards the championship, no extra points for doing all rounds (see Race Dates page).
SuperTwins Challenge Cup Series
With 3 dates agreed at SCR and after a discussion on prize fund and trophies it was agreed that riders of twin cylinder machines would get free membership in June only if entering the series. NAST would guarantee £100 at each round but no trophies. After 3 rounds the overall winner of the series (NAST member on a twin) would receive a trophy and £250 with the runner-up also getting a trophy and £100.
When the NAST banner is returned it will be reinstated as the trackside banner at SCR for the forseeable future.
Tim Boutle proposed the first round of the championship next year should be in Florida. Unfortunately this was seen to be too far to travel at the weekend for most members.
With the APIRA Prize-giving due to start it was a quick trip over the road to the Hilton Warwick. Congratulations to all NAST trophy recipients:-
