R888 is a Toyo semi slick. Would luv to put some fat slicks on it.

The AZC Willwood setup are brilliant and with the conversion rate for then U.S dollar at the moment, I am really wishing I had the coin for it.

Arrived at Wakefield at about 8am to find way more cars than I thought would be taking part, which was great for the event itself but made scrutineering a bit hectic. The organisers split the day into two parts, in the morning half the competitors would do the hillclimb while the rest did the short track and then after two runs the two groups would swap over. In the afternoon, it was the full racetrack. Having never driven the short track or the hillclimb I felt I didn’t really get the right lines sorted out but was reasonably happy that the car did have any issues other than some heat soak in the SU fuel bowls for the first run on the hillclimb.
After what I thought was an extended lunch break (reduced that time on the track for everyone), the full track sessions started. Overall I was pretty happy with how it went and set a time roughly what I was aiming for. According to a few people at the presentation dinner, I managed to do enough to win my class, although I thought I saw someone else in the same class lapping faster than me.
I’m a little surprised that somehow even though 3 sessions by 4 laps (including the warm-up laps) is 12 laps total, a few drivers managed more than 12 laps on the timing system. Either they were double-entered cars and forgot to change the timing devices or they were getting more than their share of the track time...
Managed to meet a few of the forum guys (sco_aus, GongZ, BenZed) which was great!
A few thankyous;
The Sydney Z Car Club – For hosting the event this year
All the Officials and Volunteers – Without them we can’t go racing
Capital Steering and Suspension – For their ongoing support
Last but not least My Wife – For her understanding when I spend so much time in the shed
If anyone has any photos of the Blue 240Z with 49 on the side I'd love some copies, please PM me.

I was one of the luckier ones who recieved extra track time, my electric lap timer malfunctioned, so they gave me a rerun.
I'm positive my first run was easily my fastest, he says with tongue firmly planted in cheek..lol
