A big thank you to the organisers, it was a great day.

My first time on a track and it was a lot of fun, and quite challenging. I only had two semi-controlled off track adventures, but various other 'moments'.

My times kept improving throughout the day so I ended up 7 seconds quicker than I started.

That said, the course threw up a number of challenges and I still didn't work out the quickest way down the hill and around the first hairpin.

Having only been a spectator before, I can say that Wakefield is a better spectator track, but I suspect that Eastern Creek south is much more challenging (and about 1hr50min closer to me)

It certainly was a credit to all concerned with the running of this event.:tu: Steve and Dave did well to organise great weather, too.:yes:

I started to feel a bit crook during the 2nd run, and decided to pack it in. Hope it's just a wog, and not me getting too old. :smilegrin:




I'd rather wear a Beetle out by racing it than by polishing it!

I'm new to supersprints, but I think the format worked well. I think it gave us slightly longer out on course, which helped me get my rythm better.

I love the one of the VWMA Golf lifting it's back wheel. It did it pretty much every lap - sometimes more than the one I captured.

A big thank you to the organisers, it was a great day.

My first time on a track too, it was awesome!

I pedaled the VWMA Mk1 Golf all day after a two week build - thanks Craig.

and thanks Jeff for the three wheel footage - got to look at that suspension!

Back wheels on a golf are only there to stop the rear bumpers scraping anyway.
