Before we released the rounds we were waiting for the Winton and Wakefield rounds to be 100%. Which from yesterday they are.

I'm getting the word out around the NSW boys to see if we can get a few more at WP this year.

The 'Minister for Finance' & 'Leader of the Opposition' has verbally approved attendance at 4 rounds (Winton, WP, PI & Sandown) plus a FoSC event at Eastern Creek Sth (if work doesn't get in the way). They will all be in the second half of the year so I just have to paint the inside and outside of the house and build a deck before hand Laughing After that there won't be any money left for racing. Better start work now.

I wonder if she'll approve a new set of tyres???

See you at Winton in August.

I have a totally new motor. same RWHP but 10% more torque (and earlier in the revs). My tuning man thinks he can get more horses playing on the dyno.

Taken a bit over 10kgs off (mainly my butt with a bit off the car) and a diff to suit PI. I've move my Dorian timer from the middle of the car to as far foward on the car as I can (has to be worth 1/10th sec). New brakes too.

Time will tell if I go from mid pack to Laughing ... mid pack

Sorry Greg, I have spare standard internals but not even a spare casing myself.

See you all at Winton

Sad Well, my season has finished before it has started. Running a bearing at Winton needs a lot further investigation as to the cause and the cure. Discression being the better part of valor (and if I want to stay married... and alive) I think I had better cancel any thoughts of trying to spend several $000's is out of the question.

Damn, I might even have to go on a holiday without a car trailer behind the car. I could even fly!

Hopefully next year I can get to a few.

Your Northern cousin,

Wow, these older cars sound expensive when they let go.

Sorry to hear you bad luck.

Looking forward to seeing your photos, I bet you got some funny ones.
