THE Bathurst Light Car Club would love to see all racing action return as soon as it feasibly can, but there's one venue they crave to see up and running before all other.
The club's khanacross venue at the John Winter Motorsport Park on College Road is where the city's junior members get their opportunity to learn and compete in a safe environment, and it's the top priority for club activity when coronavirus restrictions are eased.
Club president Mick Tuckey said extra time on the track might be a consideration when the green light is eventually given.
"We may even look to accelerate activity there, maybe even look at doing one event per fortnight," he said.
"That would cater for our motorkhanas and our khanacross events. We just have to wait for things to be opened up further.
We've been overcautious rather than under preparedMick Tuckey
"We'll put it to a committee meeting on Wednesday night where we can create a road map of sorts for our events when things open up.
"We could end up running a morning and an afternoon session to help us maximise our participation rates and deliver more events for people."
Tuckey said he'd love to give more juniors the chance to drive, especially since their last opportunity was stopped at the last minute.
"There's new juniors out there who missed out on the last event we had scheduled. We were all systems go before they dropped the red flag," he said.
"But we've always made sure that we've been overcautious rather than under prepared."
An unfortunate issue for the club is that while a lot of their events have officially been listed as 'postponed', the reality is that they may end up cancelled due to a packed calendar.
"We've had to postpone everything unfortunately due to the crowds that we get, especially the bitumen events on the Mount," Tuckey said.
