Just got the 'early bird' entry list from NCC, & there's stuff all Zeds running :(
Gordo (in his R32GTR),
Rob Devo in his 240Z,
Greg Lazzard in a V8 260Z (ex WA car)
& me in my 240Z.
However there seems to be lots of spaces left for more late entries. So if your thinking about running it's not too late!

All the Zeds guys seem to have entered for the Saturday!
Dan Moore 240Z
Noel Edwards 240Z <- quick Zed!
Rob Devo 240Z
Bob Greig 240Z
Steve Harris 240Z

PLEASE NOTE: The event is NOT open to the general Public any more, but if the tell them at the gate your pit crewing for Locky Fowler in the Red 240Z they should let you in.
Any troubles: ZERO FOUR ZERO ZERO ZERO FIVE FOUR FIVE SEVEN TWO

I think they could still be looking for flaggies and officials, so if you feel motivated and want to get a good spectating point on the track, let Dan know (no experience needed)

Pity you couldn't make it Bruce :(

I had a great day - till 2pm(ish) when the rain closed in :( I did have fun sliding around in the wet though :P
I only suffered a manifold gasket failure, so hopefully it'll be an easy fix...

I got down to a 1:33.5 before the rain hit, so I'm damn pleased with that time - especially considering it's a fairly stock 240Z!
Dimitri had his in-car camera set-up in my Zed so look out for some footage soonish ;D
Many thanks to everyone who came down: Dimitri, Kyle, John, Bruce & Julian, Rev. Dave & Benny and Craig.
Many thanks to Devo & NCC for running a very smooth event!

Good to hear everyone had a good day on Sunday.
I was Marshalling on Pit Straight on Saturday.  There was about half a dozen zeds running.  Everyone got a heap of track time which is good.
Really well run event by Dan Devenish and Andrew Woods.

Daniel Moore (who had his car out on Saturday) is going to look at my car hopefully this week to sort out the electrical gremlins.

When is the next event that everyone will be running at???

I had a great day. shame it was sooo cold but that Melb for you. Was nice to see the lurch monster throw his new baby around the track, and Gordo's  Gtr was a high lite once again.

Video is coming; had to edit to shorten the video as my first attempt at uploading waiting 30 mins then finding out it was 2 mins to long, edit then upload again only to fail! Had enough and went to bed. I'll try again tonight..

Oh, we'll be both in class C at Philip Island...hmmm

Oh, it's not the mic that gives the crappy sound; it's the recorder. I'm eyeing some new units on eBay at the moment that record in HD so next one's should be close to broadcast quality!

That's going to be... interesting...?

I really want to set up my own system for doing this - so PM sent!
