NSW ANDRA Division Director Elections
Category: General Discussion
Forum: The Bench

Hey guys, after a lot of consideration I, Geoff Crisp have decided to run for the position of the ANDRA Division Director in the NSW Division.

Please read my Division Director notes below, and if you have any questions please ask them.

Dear ANDRA Members

My name is Geoff Crisp and I am standing for the position of Division Director in the state of NSW, I am 57 years old and have been working in the Performance Industry since 1980.

I have been an ANDRA member since the mid 70’s and have raced a variety of vehicles in both group Two and Three, my licence number is 10 so I have been around the sport for a while and currently I am involved in racing with my family; we compete in Modified with two RED’s driven by my daughters Jessica and Fiona.

Since the mid 90’s I was originally a DC Club Delegate before becoming a DC Delegate when the Club System was removed before becoming Division Director in 2000 till I resigned in September 2006 after the NSW racers had secured a Dragstrip for all of us. I stayed on as an ANDRA Steward till December 2010 before resigning from that too and concentrating on my girls racing.

Fast forward to 2016 and to be truthful I am embarrassed to be an ANDRA member, let alone a racer. With all the in fighting and arguments between the Racers, ANDRA and Sydney Dragway our sport and our enjoyment is fast heading down the toilet and it’s about time we (ALL OF US) did something about it.

I am not saying I have all the answers but I do know that respect from all sides has a lot to do with success and unfortunately in the recent past that respect has been sorely lacking between ANDRA and Sydney Dragway and if we can’t work together we can’t fix any problems, perceived or otherwise.

There is a mountain of work to be done to rebuild the Trust, Confidence and General Well Being between all parties and that is my priority along with raising the general profile of Drag racing in NSW, including the Regional Facilities and working with ANDRA Head Office to re-establish Drag Racing as Australia’s Number One Motorsport.

We started with nothing and we did it before and we can do it again, that’s why I am running for the Division Director position in NSW.

If you have any questions I am happy to be contacted any time on my mobile which is 0456 428 598, if for some reason I don’t answer please leave a message and I WILL ring you back.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Yours in Drag Racing

Barriers have always been an issue at Calder, along with the barriers not being against the wall, remember Calder always had grass between the barriers and the wall. When the ANDRA track specs were upgraded in the early 2000's things like walls all the way into the braking area and up against the track edge were introduced and have been in force since then. Hence some regional tracks could only run vehicles up to 200 mph at the time (Palmyra for a while) as they had barriers down one side only back then.

The new regs were put in place for a couple of reasons, safety being the obvious one but at the time we were still trying to secure WSID and the ardc were telling the government they could just move the grandstand over and put a strip in next to the circuit track, bullshit and absolutely dangerous and with Tony Thornton's help a new set of safety rules were drafted (with some help from NHRA) that eventually stopped the ardc from lying to the government about being able to build a track, as Governments took safety (read being sued) very seriously.

Hopefully no one renigs on the barriers for the Nats as there have been two false starts already to get them picked up.

You should go Geoff, don't miss out on what still should be a memorable event.

Take care

This is why someone NEEDS to be in charge of publicity, the story goes it WILL be Quarter Mile for everyone because concrete walls are being trucked in from the AGP mob and the braking area will be fully walled for the minimum length (about 450 metres from memory).

Now if this info is actually disseminated more entries would (I am sure) be rolling in than there now.

With that said I really wish for this event to be a rip roaring success for ALL of Drag Racing but I am not sure, I hope so.

And like someone a lot smarter than me said "If you want to find out the truth ask someone involved so I did, and the Sanctioning Body are happy with that.

Mr Dragnew

If you saw that release did you also notice that Calder claim to be running all Group One brackets over a 1/4 mile?????

I am sure that ANDRA will have given their approval BUT if the facility doesn't meet the requirements (braking area walls etc) who cops the kicking if there is a problem?

I sincerely hope the event is a ripper because ALL Drag Racing needs to be seen as positive, especially now but it does seem that ANDRA are still keen on playing the one-upmanship game and they have to realise that this is not a game to be played, especially when safety is involved.

Thanks Grant....................But that was for the shortened 2015 Series which ended in June.

Has ANDRA announced what the 2016 Summit Series Payouts will be?

Again NOTHING AGAINST SUMMIT but our Sanctioning Body has been Chest Beating for a while now so maybe it's time to tell us what we are competing for....and I know no-one runs for money but............

Tex & Grant.

Thanks for the replies, I understand the 10% deal and the gift voucher thing,  what I am asking is if there was enough money in the J.D deal to reduce driver licence fees then there should have been enough to do something for the other Sportsman racers when Summit took over the whole Sportsman Series from Rocket.

Where can I find what the end of season payouts are for each Sportsman Bracket?

This is in no way a shot at Summit but I do believe ANDRA should stop hiding everything they do and just show us what they are doing.

Firts off it's cool to see Summit supporting the J/D Movement in Oz, and that there is enough money to reduce the Racer Licence Fees so..........

Keeping that in mind what tangible benefits did every other SPortsman racer recieve when SUmmit got to take over the Rocket Allstars Deal.

I know that there is an end of season pool but as I understand it there was enough to maybe help out the racer a bit too?

But with this great era of transparancy that the New ANDRA promised no-one will ever know.

Hey Tex

As a Sydney team who has supported Sydney Dragway with two cars since the Junior Dyas what a kick in teh nuts it is to see only ONE Summit round in NSW at the East Coast Nats.

What happened to Summit at the Nitro Champs?

And will it just be another Track Championship round, what a downgrade for such a great event.

And just to show you how kind Sydney has been by reducing the East Coast Nats from three to two days, with the old Nationals costing $430 for three days which is $143.33 per day, the new event is $380 for two days which is $190 a day, plus we lost $100 off the prizemoney.

Thanks for helping out the loyal Sydney racer guys.

Actually no Nitro at all, No Top Bike either.

I don't think it's that bad, gives a pretty fair shake for all competitors plus Sportsman.

I guess if we get out there and support the events we might get a better resullt, although the East Coast Nationals and the "mis-information" on how the track is saving the Sportsman Racers money is a little "Far Fetched", and there are a bunch of pissed off racers because of that.

Three into two DOES NOT GO!
