You need to be there Friday morning to pit together. Even so, you still end up in the back paddock, but close to the showers.

For first timers, mind the hay bale chicane. They look innocent enough, but they are anchored by several star pickets and one is tied to a telephone pole! Smooth and steady through there.

The track goes the other way now, so this is the second last corner after the hay bails and before the witches hat chicane.

been fishing up at Frazer since Saturday and home tonight. Car was packed into the trailer last week so we are heading off early tomorrow so between Dave and I and I think Noel we should be able to get a good spot for the VW's.

Great weekend was had a Leyburn by all, except maybe Greg who put a rod thru the Type 4 motor. He still managed a mid 55 sec run on his first run which is very impressive.

Here is a link to my 5th run which was my second fastest for the weekend. unfortunately the camera died on the final run which was 1/2 second faster and good enough for 2nd in class. Not bad against 3 other cars all race prepared V8 mustangs.

We had a ball and will be back next year with new brakes and new rubber!
