    I've just returned from 10 days down south to do the FOSC meeting at Wakefield Park and the Production Sports 1hr at Oran Park. A couple of wonderful circuits I'd not been to before. The Wakefield meeting didn't really count towards anything, but the Oran Park 1hr was round 4 of the CUE Prod Sports National Enduro Series. I came 3rd in class and Neil and I are now leading the series with one round to go at Phillip Island next month. Thought I'd post 3 pics from Oran.

    Cheers, thanks Cal.

    QR in march may be a bit hard to get to, my wife's 30th party will be on that weekend... MP in April is a goer.

    Bathurst would be awesome, might see what I can do for that one...mmmm

    Don't forget Merc are running that DTM car the week before. We are thinking of going Wednesday and seeing if we can catch that.

    Fuck that, Im in the fucking garage every night trying to make even a slight impression on progressing this bloody car.
    I have learnt something though, removing spot welds & drilling piles of holes is really really boring (excuse the pun)

    PS, its only fun driving on computers when you are drunk.

    I saw this car at Bathurst today. In fact it lined up directly below where I was standing.
    Nice car and it certainly seemed to be punching above its weight!
    From where I was standing it looked like you did well (or were lucky?) to avoid incident at turn 1- Hell Corner?!?!?

    Cheers mate. I think I got lucky quite a few times over the weekend! The one in that race wasn't too bad. The turbo MX5 in front just locked them up and understeered straight ahead. I just turned left into a gap that suddenly appeared.

    Thanks. Not sure at this stage. I'm racing at Lakeside on the 6th and not sure after that. I'm well over QR. It's boring and is harder on the car than anywhere else in the country.

    Was good to see it out there, they looked like fun through hungy's

    All hairdresser jokes aside, Lakeside seems like a great track for the MX5s.

    Looks so much more exciting than QR, can't wait to get back out there for a run.

    Here's 4 laps of Bathurst. The quality turned out shit on Google Video. I'm getting it uploaded elsewhere http://video.google.com.au/videoplay...01574259727975 If you minimise it to make the screen about 15cm wide it looks ok.
