    DECA, Sept 19th, shepparton, Victoria

    Each year we hold our DECA event. DECA is the name of the venue (Driver Education Centre of Australia), and they have a dirty big skidpan- perfect for our motorkhana day.
    In keeping costs down, we run this day with another club. This means the entries are cheap ($60) and they get a WHOLE lotta fun out of it.
    We run several different motorkhana tests and also a "go to whoa" on the back track. This has a start and finish garage with 3 chicanes thrown in to keep everyone on their toes. Hit a witches hat, 5 second penalty. Do a WD (wrong direction) and it's the slowest time of the run plus 5 seconds.

    All different kinds of cars play from porsche to datto to mazda to jag's to even a very big dodge!! Then we run a challenge, club against club event. First one back stays in, the other is out, but if you hit a cone you are automatically out and the other bloke gets in. Just a bit of fun, but provides plenty of banter and cheering......























    As I am one of the organisers, I cannot compete so took the prince for the 3hr drive up there.....


    Rich was the outright winner for the day- he cleen sheeted the day (no penalties) which is the biggest factor in finishing up the pointy end...




    I was too busy laughing to focus properly..... :lol:





    Now Rich's brother Cam also comes along every year- in his 700bhp+ "toy".....

    He won the club challenge - against the silver porsche.
    Highly sort after trophy- first year was a gearstick and boot,
    last year was a miniature scale of the challenge - complete with models,
    this year was the handbrake....... Cam has won all 3 - 1 of them in his Evo,
    the other two in the Cobra-

    he keeps this up and he'll soon have another car in trophies!!!

    I didn't have your pics when i was uploading these.... thanks! :tu:

    I believe so- am yet to throw it up on the hoist, but i'm thinking it's a a little more than that........ had to move it the other day and saw way too much blue smoke coming out that exhaust (ie before it had none, now there's a puff or two) I need tie to pull it apart which i haven't had lately. Plan to do a bit on the racecar this weekend, maybe i will look at the prince Bathurst weekend.

    thats the prob with exhaust leaks.... they mask other probs coz u cant hear whats going on.
    sounds like its a case of fix the exhaust, then go further with it to me.
    good luck, and let me know if u need a hand.

    It always is. Relatively low speed, load of handbrake and even more laughs.

    There were a couple of Mum's cars, a few racecars and plenty that prob need their handbrake adjusted by now!

    The sydney 1600 boys are keen to come next year so with any luck the datto's will overtake the others...!!! :mrgreen:
