It was within seconds of flag drop in their first race of the day. Despite the red flag being called straight away and the very speedy Ambulance response, they could not revive him.

    It's a sad time for a lot of riders and friends of his from around the Canterbury area and further afield.

    Tragic as it is, this is what we do. It was a racing incident and no other rider had any bearing on the incident.

    No matter how hard we try to be one of the most safety conscious clubs and are pushing even harder to make safer racing, we have to be aware that when the green flag drops our fate is uncertain. No amount of off track preparation and enforcement of safety related rules can change this.

    Our collective hearts go out to his family and friends.

    Well said Neil,

    Couldnt agree more with you re the C.A.M.S clubs efforts surrounding the improvement of safety,Incidents like this are reminders that what we do is dangerous and should be treated with the respect it so deserves,My phone was redhot on Saturday morning with complaints of safety breaches and I fully expected a call regarding a fatality,But not from your meeting.

    My thoughts go out to not only Craigs family and friends,But also the officials and corner workers who have to deal with the incident,In particular Grant Ramage,Its the second time this year he's had to do the measure up and at a track where his own brother lost his life in similar circumstances.

    Here ya are,

    Attached is the Methven Street Race entry form and a welcome message from the Methven Lions who host this event with CAMS. Entry is on a first in basis if classes are over subscribed so get your entries in early. Entries close on Friday 15 March 2013.

    The format is the same as last year’s event with the exception of the Formula CAMS 150/250 class replacing the Motards.

The entry fee includes one meal ticket and further meal tickets will be available for purchase at sign-on ($15/head).

    CAMS are not taking t-shirt orders this year, t-shirts can be purchased direct from the supplier or at the track on the day. See the attached Lions message for ordering details.

    N.B. Remember you need a 'Championship' licence to compete at a street race.

    We look forward to seeing you all there.

    Don't forget there's a CAMS club race day on 23 March at Ruapuna B track, a good opportunity for a shake down before Methven the following week.

    Cheers.
    Sometimes you wish it was easier, but if it was, everyone else would do it, then you remember you don't want to be like everybody else!

    CAMS at Levels 22nd Cancelled

    Sorry Ladies & Gents, we have decided to cancel Tomorrows CAMs meeting at Levels.
    With freezing overnight temps and further snow, sleet, rain and 5 degree day time temps etc it wasn't going to be safe or fun.
    St Johns also had concerns about being able to provide their usual top notch service so that was it.

    I blame the new President, weather was always good when the past president was running the show

    Cheers
