Went along as a spectator and took about 90 odd shots. I've posted a small selection on my gallery site at http://www.drago.com...ls.php?album=26

If you went along, let me know what your number was, and if I have a photo, I'll post it.

Cheers,

i went along but only as a spectator,

was interesting good to see a Z top the motorkahna track with a 31.6 which was the red 2 seater 260, thats the lowest i saw

was good to see some of the crayz Z's that were there, extremly well presented cars, and some that were all out racers which was nice to see...

i was new to it all and didn't really know what was going on with the track work.... someone care to explain

I didn't get to the motorkhana track at all. The track was too much fun. ;)

Didn't see the triumph, but he was right, there were turbo zeds there. ;)

Atleast you weren't the dick who missed the drivers briefing, had to get a good mate to talk the scrutineers into staying back a little longer while he fixed a brake line he fucked, then got onto the track with unbled brakes, almost took the 1st turn straight out of pit lane (short course), then DID take the pit entry instead of the corner..

Atleast I gave a few people a laugh. :D

Likewise. December 14th Calder are having an open practise session. Was a bit steep last time I checked though, and I'd like to get some more work done on the car before it goes out next. Might have to make do with drag racing on the 4th (at heathcote) for my fix. :D
