Hi all Clarky here,
I just wanted to say how pleased I am as Commodore of the Adelaide Speedboat Club for the way in which everyone operated at the Melton Runabout Speedboat Club last weekend. Everyone that went over from South Australia conducted themselves as true boat racers on and off the water and I am truly proud of the way that our club has been represented at a major event such as the Melton Gold Cup.
Congratulations to this year's winners and I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend and will be back for more in 2015
Here is a quick summary written by Mike Smith that I would like to share on our club website (thanks Mike):
Well done James Clark for taking out first place in Formula Future. Lauren Griffiths for winning 25hp and Skeet Lawson winning 105 class.
Also Jarrad Smith, Adam Smith, Adam Stunell, Jamie Royles, David Clark for racing hard all weekend and putting on a great show. Bad luck to Jeff Stunell with engine trouble on Friday.
You all did SA and Adelaide Speedboat Club proud!!!
Also this from Skeet Lawson who competed with his 105MPH boat Cause 4 Concern:
What a great weekend away racing in Melton. Our first interstate meeting in the boat and came away with the win in the 105MPH Class. Huge thanks goes to Garry Wilson for driving over with me. Matt Smith for crewing and all the other people that helped the MRSBC have a successful meeting in very trying conditions. It was fantastic to race and have a beer with some great blokes.
And another from the Club's own Facebook site:
A huge congratulations must go to all ASBC members that travelled with or to watch our 9 boats that raced at the Melton Gold Cup last weekend. James Clark, Lauren Griffiths and Skeet Lawson won their respective classes. Well done guys. You should be very proud of yourselves.
Jarrad and Adam Smith put on some excellent racing, with Adam being the victor in most races as Jarrad had impellor problems on Saturday.
Jeff Stunell had engine problems early and missed the meeting, which was a shame as the combo has been showing a lot of promise. Adam on the other hand had a good weekend until the last race of the weekend where he had top end issues.
David Clark and the Tuff-e-Nuff Team made some solid progress over the course of the weekend and just missed out on the finals. Jamie Royals had a good weekend but was unfortunately disqualified in a race where he actually beat Dave Clark. From all reports everyone had a fantastic time and are keen for our next meeting on March 15th

First of all we at the Adelaide Speedboat Club would like to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. We're all looking forward to another year of improvement for the club and are running full steam ahead after the success of our Spectacular last November and yet another great club day on the 12th of this January.
On a sombre note, former Adelaide Speedboat Club racer Greg Fleming has passed away. Greg used to race a KT boat called 'Villain' and was a popular, well respected driver at the Club. We would like to extend our condolences to the Fleming family at this sad time.
