The Corona Virus pandemic has brought many changes to the normal Australian way of life and the effects of these changes has impacted the activities of this club. Of upmost importance to the HRCC committee is the health and safety of its members. We ask that all members make themselves aware of, and comply with, the various government regulations and health advice information. The demographics of club members puts a large portion of us in the elevated age risk category. We want and need a strong membership base to enjoy events and meetings when we come out of the restrictions phase. The HRCC committee is still committed to continue working through various projects on it’s agenda. Committee meetings continue now through video conferencing and are proving to be very workable. Recently, the majority of HRCC members were emailed a survey form which detailed projects for the committee to work on. We asked members for their input by ranking the importance of the various projects. If you have not completed the survey please do so soon. The Autumn Historic Warwick 2020 race meeting event in early May has been cancelled. We were prepared to run the event under the original social distancing requirement of 500 people and sought support of competitors through a survey. However, once borders were closed, Morgan Park Raceway decided to cease activities until 30th of June at least. Plans and logistics for the Historic Queensland 2020 race meeting scheduled for July 11th & 12th are still under review by the committee. It is difficult to plan as it is not known what restrictions may be in place for July. There are many “what if” scenarios being discussed. There is a long lead time in preparing for Historic Queensland so the cut off date for a decision is fast approaching. Unknown also is if Morgan Park Raceway will continue racing activities after 30th June. Investigations are also underway on what may be possible to enable racing events in the 4th quarter of 2020. We ask all members and their families to stay safe and healthy. Keep in touch with each other and maintain your racing and non-racing connections so we come out the other side of this Covid-19 challenge with a stronger desire to go racing. 
We look forward to seeing you all at future HRCC events. HRCC Committee
