        The live stream is very good for those at home, the format really suits commentary and coverage over live i think.

        767B showcase laps and wondering around the vendor tents/cars are fairly worth admission though.

          The Tilton Evo is getting rebuilt for this apparently. Off to Melbourne next week for straightening

              Best part is wandering through the car park, checking out all the street cars you never see anymore.

                Another MR2 guy is competing this year with a rather rapid SW20, in open class.

                      Random comment.

                      I know these cars are pretty much setup around one single lap, but with some setup and tuning changes, how would one go at doing a lap of the 'Ring in anger?

                          Ring would be too bumpy unless they went all out on bespoke suspension components. MCA use the car to showcase the suspension you can buy from them ie MCA gold spec coilovers even at eastern creek they'd had issues once it gets loaded up by the aero.
                          If in doubt power out

                            In slightly related news, Andre Heimgartner broke the 20 year old outright lap record in the MCA Hammerhead at Queensland Raceways last Thursday. Andre only had a few sessions in the car on the short tracks, before having a crack at the National Circuit during the lunch break of the Time Attack event. He recorded a 1:04.03, which bettered the previous record of 1:04.06 previously held by Simon Wills in a Holden Reynard 94D.

                              Would be an interesting exercise but I reckon it would be a heap of work to try and make these things last the ring and actually work. The bumps of the ring are one thing. The distance and durability required another. Also seeing what they can do to a set of 050s in a couple of laps wont get them around the ring but I guess there are always slicks. I guess making one survive pikes peak would be a similar challenge.

                                Do they have a class that is suited to how far you can push a stock shell, retain and use strut towers and so on? dont think there is much left in regards to off the shelf item's other then you can buy majority of tiltons and suzuki unders kit


                                Going to be some fast car's this year and i think i will watch it from comfort of my house.
