I don't know nah i might be just plain stupid but i think the best way to get a track would be to setup a charitable foundation. Then get businesses and people to donate money to the foundation. The business man will be able to claim back their money in taxes and we will get cash to fund a new track. Minus the land the cost of building the track can be how expensive. I mean sure we want the best but right now we racing on highways and so on. ALMOST ANYTHING WILL DO. I myself think it is possible to get this underways. All we need is a very generous racer with some estate land, about 100 Businesses each willing to donate $5000 a piece and we should have enough money to get something decent.

as my post says the only way we the racers and supporters getting anything is to unify and show d government/minister of sports our seriousness,desire and disipline to have a race track also to curb street racing.SO WE NEED EVERYONE TO COME OUT FOR THE NEXT MEETING 1ST SEPTEMBER AND TELL YOUR PARTHNERS,FAMILY OR ANYBODY INTRESTED IN GETTING RACING BACK ON TRACK!!!

ok my first ans to you question is TTUNDRA will be a racer elected, apointed and managed organization with fresh faces, new ideas and with one common goal in mind which is to re-shape and transform the image of drag racing while unifing the racers,cutting down on illegal racing and weeding out the corruption that motorsport has always been faced with.secondly the regristration fee is only $100 payable anually.thirdly the members of the executive are yet to be voted in but i can assure u this club is shaping up to be one of a kind very fair and transpearant without all the BS you see in other racing bodies.

N.B-OUR STRENGTH IN NUMBERS AND UNITY WILL HELP IN MOVING THE PROCESS OF AQUIREING A TRACK FASTER!!!

Who can join, only racers or can non-racers also be members? What is the process to apply? Since the TTUNDRA does not exist who will issue receipts? What is the minimum age required to join? Are there different levels of membership?

So the association is yet to be established as an entity. Therefore you are looking for foundation members. From these foundation members an executive will be chosen so the TTUNDRA can be formalised. Or am I mistaken? Would the Constitution and MoA be available for perusal any time soon (perhaps prior to the meeting in September)?

^^I agree 100% with the above statement. It is the questionable methods being used by some to create the false impression of unity that I have issue with. It is still clear that there are many 'so-called' racers out there who still have not been able to grasp the reality of the situation.


I have no interest in joining another association at this time as I believe my association is serving me well. However, if you can clearly show some tangible benefits then I will reconsider my position.

:shock: :shock:
Considering we have no facility to compete locally, I don't see any benefit to joining this association!
