G'Day,

I meant to post something last week advising of it, but on the weekend the 5th 6 hour relay was run. approx 270 cars entered and plenty of JNC.

I am almost finishing going through my pics and will upload shortly.

Cheers,

OK. Near on 1000 pics and I am just about done.

but, for me, the best pic...
Image

I ran two teams. My club had 3, along with several other club guys who also part of another club running 2. At first it looked like i was running 3 teams, but thank god someone stepped up.

Group shot
Image

My teams were Fords, with a couple BMW E30's, an MX5 and a Z32. there were a few JNC'ers playing as well. 1600GT had a crack as did silverra23.

So the event is a regularity- Saturday is practice and you nominate your time. the aim is to hit your time every lap to get bonuses. Go faster than the time you nominate and you get penalised.
all sorts of cars- plenty of porsches, lotus, minis both old and new, mustangs (those too both old and new) and all things in between.
50 teams. 3-6 cars per team, 4-6 drivers., making it a lot of cars.

We had a few issues on Saturday, with all but one car out the back with bonnets up. But, a little hard work and all were good to go Sunday morning.
Cars grid up and with 50 starters it is freaking awesome. flag drops and every one starts rolling forward until they cross the control line- then it is game on.

This was beautiful. Sitting out the back in pristine condition....

Motiv8 had my camera and was wandering around the track taking pics when he heard gravel
Image
whilst frantically trying to step back with a camera still up to his eye, he saw this.............

Bit of an "off"
Image
Image
one of these every year....
Image

After the event we could do a parade lap- pete (Z32 owner) let me take his car around the track...... it was hard to not be on the track playing.

a) - you submit your own team. So, gather your mates and make a team.

b) my guys won't bitch - I scare them too much when i get shitty.... :twisted:

:lol:

Adam- in all the pics i don't have any of yours!!!

Such a good mix of cars. I don't think you can really see stuff like this on the top half of the globe save Japan.

There's literally all kind of everything. New porsches, old ones, mustangs old and new, anglia's, honda's, mini's old and new, plus a bunch of Hyundai Excels- in fact they won last year! Mini's (new) won this year but a few of the old datto's i took came second.
It's an awesome event. Not just sprints/races, but a 6 hour long one. The start is awesome- 1600GT can attest to that.
the guys in the yellow R31 took video

Hey Brett, you go sailing past him in that one..

Excellent footage and the driver has done many events before this.

yep. honestly, in the 15 or so years i've been racing, the start of the race and the following 10 odd laps were the BEST racing experience i've ever had. easily, bar none, and i'd do it again tomorrow!

obviously he recognised me as a much more talented race driver than he could ever be and knew that he must give way...
