    The Racewars Albany 2020 Thread

    With entries opening soon ..... it is time to #stepyourgameup

    Are entered/entering or need other relevant info and get lost on or not on FB then a couple that still use this will keep you updated..

    This just in ... (as I was looking for the countdown clock on the website and making sure I was going to be in front of a computer at 1800 today.... )

    ..

    From RW20 FB page /

    #RW20 Competitor Announcement.

    Racewars 2020 is pleased to announce it has just agreed to revised insurance terms with a more competitive provider which will allow us to continue to deliver our event to the standard you've come to expect from us.

    As part of this agreement we will be revising two sections of the #RW20 Event Regulations. We will be publishing these revisions on Thursday 12th and as such we will delay the Official Launch until September 20th to allow for competitors to re-read the documents and understand how these changes may impact them.

    The changes are limited to some additional clarifying statements to the Driver & Vehicle Safety Standards. It will make it easier for you to understand your requirements and help ensure you can prepare to go racing with the best possible safety gear at your disposal.

    So while we appreciate this delay will frustrate some we hope you'll understand we are doing what we can to help ensure you can #stepyourgameup safely, sustainably and socially responsibly.

    We thank you for your patience and understanding.

    //////



    ....

    So get ready to read up on the 12th then stump up on the 20th

    You'd better do VMax properly this year - time to find out what it will finally do over the 1000m after all these years! Don't wanna hear no excuses. Seeing as I'll be spectating, I'm running my mouth instead, starting now, obviously...

    i think there are numbers on entry but in previous years hadn't been able to crack their system,,, as I am pretty sure it didn't start at #1,. as there must be a whole lot reserved for sponsors, as well as ones set aside for platinum...

    If a few of us put date time entered and the number that was in email.. we may be able to get Damo to do a spreadsheet......

    ********** FB update //

    Racewars 2020 Entry Update.

    Runway Racing entries are live and we expect Premium Entries (Platinum Club + VMAX Challenge) to sell out soon.

    If you're wanting to run in the 1KM VMAX Challenge or enjoy Platinum privileges don't delay! #stepyourgameup and sign up before they're sold out.

    Standard Entries will remain open and Racewars will take expressions of interest from registered #RW20 Standard Entrants to join the wait list for any priority entry allocations that aren't utilized by sponsors or event partners.

    Cash Days + Racewars Sprint Entries will open in November and separate announcements will be made shortly regarding those events.

    Racewars are pleased to announce BTG Mechanical as the Naming Rights Partner for Cash Days 2020!

    Not only have Brook & his team at BTG have fielded the winner of both previous events they are also proud locals stepping up to support car culture in their community.

    BTG Mechanical Cash Days entries will open in November with Racewars 2020 competitors being given an exclusive pre entry opportunity 1 week ahead of the general public along with discounted sign up!


    // some awesome news...........

    when we took some non-motorsport friends to RW at the first albany that had cash days.. they loved cashdays and was one of their fav parts of the weekend... with the new viewing areas and how the event has evolved with music, bar, grandstand etc viewing areas the nighttime cash days will be pretty awesome......

    Almost daily updates coming in from the RACEWARS crew via FB........

    ///////////

    We often talk about "The Grassroots" of Motorsport but what does it mean?

    To us it's not about your car, or your speeds, it's about your ethos and passion for going racing. In short "It's the vibe!" We go racing for fun, to enjoy our passion for car culture and the relentless pursuit of our own personal goals.

    While we are awe struck with the power and performance our top tier entrants develop it doesn't matter to us if you've got 200hp or 2000hp. Everyone is welcome!

    Too often we see people shy away from enjoying their car "because it won't be fast enough". If you genuinely believe that you're missing the point. At Racewars 2020 you've got the chance to legally explore what you & your car can do in a legal, safer & off street environment with like minded enthusiasts.

    #stepyourgameup and find out what you're capable of, you might end up pleasantly surprised!

    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


    Whilst an Event like Racewars is a great equaliser in terms of rolling starts and how different vehicles not only get their power down but how they differ in their power-bandwidths as well.. It is also a great humbler. Too often on the street when driving a fast car you get so used to the turbo rush or supercharged thrust that you can think that you are in a very quick street car. And within the constraints of the street and the seat of your pants you are...... At RACEWARS only one can be the fastest and only one the quickest.. Not that is a bad thing as #stepyourgameup means you want to try and run again against guys that have beat you in the past and beat them or not lose by as much..... but there really is something about even getting toasted. When your close to the car next to you up to the double tonne and then you get left behind in the top end of the race it really is amazing and definitely beats watching a race go down from the fence-line. So like they say everyone is welcome , enter, pass scruit, turn up...

    there really is NOWHERE in AUS where you can run side by side with another performance car over 800m without hoon laws coming to get you .............................................. Something that makes the event truly unique ....

    RACEWARS SPRINT UPDATE From RW20 FB ///////

    Racewars is pleased to announce that Targa West Events have partnered with us to not just keep the The Racewars Sprint alive for 2020 but to use their wealth of experience and knowledge to help make the event bigger, better and elevate it to the next level.

    It wasn't an easy decision for us to hand over The Sprint. However by partnering with Ross & his team we're able to focus all our energy on the Runway Racing side of Racewars 2020 knowing that Targa West will be able grow this event beyond what we could do on our own.

    The Racewars Sprint will always remain part of the Racewars weekend, we'll always be part of The Racewars Sprint!

    We want to thank the Street Car Racing Association of WA, Confederation of Australian Motor Sport - CAMS & The City of Albany for their help in developing this event and I'm sure all of us are looking forward to the next evolution of the sprint!

    We'll still be there at Hybla Tavern on RW Monday ready and rearing to go!

    #RW20 // #stepyourgameup // #unfinishedbusiness


    /
    this is great news this years sprint was awesome and not just the road you get to fang it on,,, the location eateries (hybla etal... ) and other sights make this one worth staying an extra night in City of Albany area .......

    Get your stories out Gents.....(and Ladies )

    ////////////

    Racewars has been around since 2013 (2012 if you count the lead up to the 1st event) and during that time there's been a hell of a lot of tales that need to be told born off the back of peoples adventures along the #roadtoracewars

    So for Racewars 2020 the Racewars Radio crew are going to try something a little bit different and sit down with people to talk about their #RWStories!

    Got a tale you think needs telling, get hold of the guys and see if they'll swing their amazing new mobile studio your way for a yarn. (Wait until you see what they've gone and done...)

    What could possibly go wrong! 🤷ping♂️

    //////////////////////////////////////////

    I am sure there are some good ones....... I know there has been a few shared on this forum over the years throughout the various RW threads........

    got a story you care to share... let the #racewarsradio crew know.... or if they aren't that PG./ PC .. put them here......

    I know in our household..... the lead up vids between the AU and the Camry were hilarious (especially to young teenage males )..... wonder what they are up to next.......I hope they havent gone all SUPRaserious .......


    ///////

    Today we bid farewell to #grannypants.

    The team at WTFauto have called time on the little Camry that almost kept our AU honest!

    While we think we'll miss the banter we're slightly more concerned with what Tristan and the team are doing to their other cars with all the spare time they're not wasting on trying to make a nanna spec Centerlink car park special go fast!

    If anyone actually know what they're up to drop the Racewars Radio guys a sneeky PM.
