The '2020 Victorian Masters Road Series' is here!
First race 15th March - Drouin South
SMCC is promoting a brand new series for Masters racers comprising 6 graded scratch races on selected Sundays mornings from March through to October, to be held on a variety of courses across the South-East region of Melbourne.
The Series is open to SMCC and non-SMCC members, Males 30+ and Females 15+. To be eligible for an end of year placing, you must start at least one race and perform one or more volunteer duties.
There is no separate fee to enter the Series, in fact we are offering a Series Entry at $60 for all 6 races, a saving of $30, just pay your $60 (cash only) at Race 1 or 2. We also hope to have an online sign up and payment option available shortly.
If you don't want to commit to the whole series, just turn up for whichever races suit you, pay your normal $15 individual race entry and you'll automatically be part of the series and start accumulating points - simply turn up and race!

Competitors will accumulate points at each Series race throughout the year in an attempt to become the 2020 Series winner in their Grade, with awards presented to each Grade winner at the last race of the series.
Start Points: 3 per start,
Race Position Points:
Contribution (Duty) points:
Performing a duty that prevents racing that day: 4 points
Performing a duty that enables racing that day: 1 point
Note that if you move grades during the Series you will retain any start and duty points accumulated to that point but will forfeit any place points (1st-5th).
Series placings will be updated after each race and posted on our Facebook and Team App pages.
The first race is not far away, 15th March at Drouin South - an opportunity for the puncheurs and rouleurs to steal a march on the sprinters - so come along and sign up for the series by paying your $60 (cash) at either Race 1 or Race 2, save some money and get an early lead!
Thanks for your support,
The SMCC Committee.
In the event of cancellation of a series race due to weather etc, the organisers may designate one of the non-series road races (19-Apr, 13-Sep or 15-Nov) to become part of the series.
If, due to unforeseen circumstances, less than four events are run as part of the series, series entrants will receive one race entry credit for each event less than four, redeemable as entry fee to another SMCC race.
