This Year Rnd 1 will feature the Sprint Cars using the 1500 & 2100 meter track and the Short Circuit Cars using the 1200 meter track.
As we approach the annual meeting and look ahead into 2020 we should all be thinking of the opportunities and challenges that this year will bring to the Short Circuit Motor Sport Association.
The Short Circuit Motor Sport Association has continued to conduct super sprints and short circuit events, and in 2020 the Association has scheduled four weekends. The first of these meetings will be held at Morgan Park Raceway, Warwick on 29thFebruary / 1st March 2020. At this event we intend to utilise two alternative length circuits for those competing in the super sprints.
Please find enclosed a nomination form for the office bearers for 2020. If you wish to nominate please have your nomination form completed and forwarded to the Club Secretary by no later than Thursday 30th January 2020. No nominations can be accepted after this date.
Please give some thought to nominating for the 2020 positions, but please be prepared to be dedicated to the position and the responsibilities that accompany that position. Remember this is your Association, your sport, and the Association needs the support of every member.
PLEASE NOTE: Should voting for any position be required, be advised proxy votes will not be accepted.
In the case of two or more nominations being received for a position, the candidates will be given a chance to present a five (5) minute talk on their vision for the Association in 2020, and what attributes they can bring to the position for which they are nominating.
The Association’s Annual Meeting and Election of Office Bearers for 2020 will be held on Saturday 1st February 2020 at the Darling Downs Vintage and Veteran Motor Club clubrooms, 2 Rocla Court, Toowoomba at 10.30 a.m. Lunch and a few drinks will be available after the meeting.
The Association hold their annual meeting on Saturday to allow out of town members to attend the Short Circuit Motor Sport Association’s annual general meeting. We would welcome everyone that can attend.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members who have supported the Association throughout 2019, and to everyone who has helped me throughout the year I offer you my sincere thanks. I am looking forward to seeing you all at the Annual General Meeting.
Yours in Motor Sport

Today hundreds of people came together at the Toowoomba’s Saint Thomas More's Catholic Church to farewell our great friend and Association leader Fred Berge.
Our sincere condolences to Pat, Brad, Lynne and family.
A wonderful testament to Fred's life was delivered in the eulogy by long term friend and President of the Short Circuit Motor Sport Association Derek Pingel.
Below is a complete copy of the eulogy. Rest in peace Fred and may God bring you home to your eternal rest.
It is with a deep sense of sadness that as President of the Short-Circuit Motor Sport Association I advise all members and friends of the passing of our founding member and great friend Fred Berge.
Fred's outstanding service to the motorsport industry spans over 60 years as a competitor, event organiser, CAMS Steward, photographer, reporter, race commentator, CAMS official and event organiser.
“He leaves a legacy which has been developed over many years assisting drivers develop their skills from age 14 to age 80. His contribution has had a direct result in improving drivers road safety and race craft”.
Cams Australia published: “He has played such a pivotal role in providing an inexpensive well-regulated competition that has launched so many drivers careers, his contribution cannot be overstated.”
Fred leaves behind his great friend Pat and is survived by his 2 children Brad and Lynne, together with 7 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
A full copy of the eulogy will be published on this website following Fred's funeral.
For those wishing to attend the funeral, it will take place at Saint Thomas More's Catholic Church, 71 Ramsay Street Toowoomba at 2 PM on April 16.
Burial will take place at the Garden of Remembrance and celebration refreshments at Saint Thomas More's Hall immediately after.
We pray Fred will rest in eternal peace.
