Denistone Sporting Club, 59 Chatham Road, West Ryde, at 7:00pm on Wednesday, 15 November 2023 with dinner from 6:00pm

Please join us for our 2023 Annual General Meeting on the evening of Wednesday 15 November, when we will present the Audited Annual Accounts of the Club and elect Office-Holders. The AGM is important because it is an opportunity to review the year and we invite feedback on the way the HSRCA responds to the challenges and opportunities that lie before us. As is our recent tradition, meals will be free on this night. 

This 2022-23 year has seen only two promoted meetings with the ongoing closure of Wakefield Park (now One Raceway) and we hope to be holding a race meeting on the new layout (in either direction!) in the second half of 2024. We have also experienced a decline in numbers, as with many fields of motorsport due to the economic situation, and we are introducing new fields to run within our events to retain our viability. We have undertaken a social media Initiative to broaden our profile to a younger demographic and to promote better communications and social discourse among members and friends, as many of us are active on Facebook. 

Attached is a proxy form if you cannot attend, and nomination forms for the Committee and named positions as per the Constitution. We encourage members who wish to serve to nominate – we need at least one extra General Committee member to replace an outgoing member and we need more volunteers! The audited accounts and my report will be forwarded to members after the AGM. 

We will also have after the formalities of the AGM a wonderfully entertaining guest speaker in Peter Robinson, former Editor of Wheels, Autocar and Car & Driver, and supporter of the Australian Motor Heritage Foundation, with whom we work closely. Brian Caldersmith will interview Peter (who is usually the interviewer!) and extract from him some of the best stories from the thousands of pages of his writing on matters motoring, including being banned by Ferrari – twice! 

We look forward to seeing you on 15 November, dinner will start from 6.00 with the AGM from 7.00pm and Robbo speaking thereafter.
