Good work Jase, how does that time compare to the Sports 2000?

Did Motty catch up? He was saying the Davidson Formula 5000 was 5 seconds a lap faster than a Touring car...or what ever there called now. A few Zed's in the regularity?

Whacking in some 1.55's in race 1and 2 8 th and ninth o/r
Bloody hard work, brakes are not good and down front straight at approx 235 something is causing electrical or fuel issues at high rpm and driveline vibration.

Got rather fun incar footage of Pirker into rear of yellow DeTomaso on strat of race 1.

Come by and say hi, am on grassy area to right just over bridge.
Next events Sunday approx 12 noon and 4pm.

Sounds like your having fun down there. Sounds like we may have to go through the brake catalogue and look at destroying rotors until you can use vented ones.

A great day on Sunday

Huge prang in the Group SC race on Sunday (right in front of the NDSOC display)  with a Corvette spinning on the sweeper taking out half a dozen cars, Jason ended up facing the wrong way and looked to have avoided much of the carnage, a 911 rolled several times (end over end at one point) and was totally destroyed- driver was very lucky to avoid serious injury.

Particularly at 2:11. And clean underwear would be a priority for Jason, not car parts :)

I was there on the Sunday and saw the big roll over, he was a very lucky man. Well done to all the zed guys racing. Good to catch up with the NDSOC at turn 12 the best spot in the Shannon's walk. I was there for 4 hours, there where so many cars to look at I didn't even get time to go in the pits, this is a fantastic event, i will  be going next year, Cheers Gordon.

How's the marshall waving the green flag furiously after the crash, then swaps to the red once he realises what he's doing.  ;D

Yes, funny about that, i rejioned at rear of field, got pass the incident, and proceeded to pass the car in front, at start line was yellow flag waving, so no passing from then on, all remaining did full lap slow under yellow, regrouped in single file from start of turn 12 back, in case???, event was restarted, after a while, instruction came, event declared a Non event, return to pits via turn 4. Usual procedure.
We all got a good look at the remains, anyone see how far the engine/transaxle from the Porsche, was flung?

The rollover happen right in front of us- the transaxle stayed attached, the porker lost its screen, bumbers and various bits of metal in the cartwheel and sounded like a biscuit tin full of  bolts when then rolled it back onto its wheels and dragged onto the flat bed. The roll cage certainly did its job as you could clearly see the impressions in the roof.
Here is a pic I took when you wre leaving the scene

Flaggie waving green is standard procedure as he was the first flag point past the incident and signifying that the track is again clear for racing.

Red flag is waved only under instruction from race control. No flag marshal can make the decision to wave a red flag no matter how bad the incident. The decision to go to a red flag is made by the clerk of course under advise from senior sector marshalls.
The flaggie prior would be able to only wave double fellows if deemed necessary if cars were blocking the track, or people were on the track or in a dangerous position.

Yep, as a flag marshall you are signalling to the driver what the situation is from your flag position onwards, not what has happened prior to the driver arriving at your spot.
