WE ASKED, YOU ANSWERED AND WE'VE LISTENED
Well, the results of the Jamboree Survey are in! We undertook the survey to accurately map where we stood on the automotive event landscape, and what shortcomings we could address to reassert the Jamboree moving forward.
The information gathered has confirmed many of our thoughts and should help us re-shape the Jamboree for the future. Based on your input, as well as feedback from our spectators, competitors, traders, sponsors and track management, we'll be making the following changes to the Jamboree events in 2014.
- The Brisbane Jamboree will move back to a 1-Day event and race into the night, like early events. The Sunday was be reserved as a rain day.
The Sports Bike and Pro Sports Bike brackets will be retired from the Jamboree events.
- The Modified 10.5 class will become a 4, 6 and Rotary bracket only with turbo V8’s moving into the Extreme bracket.
All Normally Aspirated and Nitrous only V8s will be retired from competing at the Jamboree events.
We'll be simplifying the Street Compact class rules to encourage more people to get involved in Sport Compact Drag Racing.
We’ll be putting in place an ET Cut Off for the All Motor class. ET TBC.
Plus a couple of other new features we can't announce just yet.
Stay tuned for more details on the changes in the coming weeks.
Now everyone one that did the survey went into the draw for the Jamboree Tour Package that includes :
- Airfares for 2 people to the Sydney or Brisbane Jamboree from major airports on the East Coast of Australia
Twin share accommodation. (Hotel TBC)
- 2 x VIP Corporate Box Tickets to the Sydney or Brisbane Jamboree
And the winner of the Jamboree Tour Package is Stewart Hanley from Lemon Tree Passage, just north of Newcastle NSW. Stewart has been to every Sydney Jamboree since it started and has always wanted to go to the Brisbane Jamboree. Well, in August he and a friend will be heading up to the Brisbane Jamboree to make that dream come true. Congrats Stewart and we’ll see you at the 2014 Brisbane Jamboree!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that took part in the survey. We really appreciated your feedback and support.
