Anyone else going ?
I stayed at the Koala something-or-other for the 6 hour last year. Very cheap, very basic, but clean and friendly.

You are only racing against a time clock, and only one lap over the whole weekend will count.
You nominate a class/capacity, based on car, if no logbook, you could almost call a S30 "Historic", but i think their Historic Sports/Tourers category will be the logbooked ones. You'll be Road Rag!
Couple years back Warwick Club up here called it the "Australian" S/S Champs, now they call it the Qld S/S champs,
Seems like piarc has jumped on that.
Gunna be a few bigheads now, "i raced at the Australian etc etc" telling us all about it.
It really the Victorian S/S Champs, but interstaters are welcome, just like the other State based S/S champs being held.
All good fun, would like to attend, but, due to other issues, can not make it.

And that is the challenge. To arrive, drive, survive and leave happy.

Is that 26 pairs of cars ie 52? the max track density is 55.
13 pairs, ie 26 cars on track at one time, much safer!
Be a bugger if there is a quick one, and he laps a few backmarkers, they get the chequer flag to signal end of session, and could be a lap, even 2 ( be jolly quick car) down.
Pete Mac, you going to have a go? You'll rustle up a 1.47er car for it, hey!!

" up to 26 cars on the circuit at any one time".
I'd be interested in sharing a garage, I think I would have died from Hypothermia at the 6 hour relay if I was out in the paddock. Thinking back, we comfortably fitted 6 cars in two adjacent garages for that event.

PS In real life I don't bite.

Got a few things to tidy up before I commit to having the car ready in time, should know by the end of the week.
If I don't compete, I'll still come down for a drive, got a present for Lurch

Have to get a skin cancer chopped off my shoulder, which will apparently involve removing a 3-4cm chunk of shoulder as the skin cancer is 15mm diameter itself. The plastic surgeon doing the job doesn't like the idea of HANS / harness ripping the wound open so not Datsun for up to 6 weeks , and also doesn't want me to put it off again (ie wait till after the middle of November).
Apologies, I don't like committing to something then having to pull the pin, but I guess there are some things (like your health) more important than racing :'( What makes it worse is that this trip to PI was to make up for missing the Nationals at Easter which I had to pull out of due to my father being in hospital.
Lurch - I will still come down with your present, just may be later in November (maybe for a trip to "Island Magic" at PI later in November).
