lou0060 - October 25th, 2015 at 09:25 PM

entry has been accepted so guess I'll have to take the car out of the trailer and do a once over before we head up.....

lou0060 - October 29th, 2015 at 05:18 PM

got the prelim entries today and looks like it will be a lonely weekend as I'm the only Beetle and there is only one Mk1 golf and a VW special running to fly the VW flag.

Also they put me in the Sports Sedan class so will have to put some more of that octo-grip on my poor old 5 year old Dunlops......

I`ll be heading back from Byron on the friday, then load race buggy onto trailer & head north to Noosa for pit set-up, admin paperwork & srew-tin-ear
then dinkahol-oclocko :-)

How good was that Lou?
:) pbarkn fun or what?

great weekend Matt! Wasn't able to keep up with the Escorts but I gave them a fright!

Of the 4 cars in my group I was the only one who did all 8 runs without a DNF or non-start, pretty good I reckon.

And of the 7 timed runs I had 4 within 0.3 secs of each other and of the other 3 one was my first timed run and the other two in the wet. Pretty happy with that and now have a base line for next year.

I'll upload some runs over the next few days.

Well done on your win in Libre class, that unit is a rocket!:tu::tu::tu::tu:
