Building on his past experience as coordinator for the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, managing Director Kristjan Snorrason announced a schedule of events organized by Full Gas Promotions (FGP) for 2007.
The Chase the Sun series is oriented toward racers of all levels. Spread throughout the year, with varying amounts of sunlight available, each event is a challenge to ride as many loops of the sensational Lysterfield trails as possible before the sun sets. A unique format, Pro Teams of two riders each will race each other for the overall. ProTeams may nominate a team roster of up to four riders at the start of the series and may chop and change from within that roster prior to each round. Other categories include Corporate for teams up to three riders, Solo, and Husband & Wife although the promoter said "No marriage certificates needed!" to prove marital status. Those too young or not yet married can race the Just Good Friends category or the Young Guns category. The Chase the Sun series will happen April 8, May 20, July 1, and August 19.
FGP also organizes a few other events: a weekly Kona Dirt crit Thursdays at 6:30 pm at Westgate Park in Melbourne; Subaru Interactive @ Docklands Melbourne 12hr in Werribee, Victoria, on September 15; and the Kona 24hr Global Series Race in Anglesea, Victoria, on December 1-2.
