Tanyone interested to see some historic, and not so historic cars scooting around Morgan Park at Warwick, on the weekend of Feb 24/25 , free entry for spectators.

saturday is for testing and newcomers to have a go, under pace car control, and driver instruction sessions, Sunday is open supersprints.

Entries have closed for the Saturday, but, HRCC dot org dot au ( website) may be able to accept late entries.
CAMS one day licences available, free membership to HRCC for the day for newbies.

It is a fun relaxed day, kicks off around 7.30, am, allw a good hour and half to get from Brisb to MP.
Once again, check out HRCC website for details and contact information

Short notice, but for those interested in a no pressure sessions on the track, under practice/testing guise, this is a very good opportunity to do so.

Sum Carnt, that little crazy  chinese fella, on here, has got his Chookcooker finally running, as of today, very noisy, and likes to go brap brap brap!
It's making its return to a Qld racetrack, after a 27 year hiatus this weekend at HRCC Morgan Park.

Yep, super updated, so updated it has no cams, and no head!
Eniways, a horrible wet rainy day, only had 10" wide slicks, so the fun began, next was the whole left hand drive thing, right hand gearchange, with reversed arse about gearshift pattern, and an airbox cover that blocked the view of the lowere right hand side of windscreen.
Fun
Fun
Fun!
1st session, slicks, ( no wets yet) take it easy, gentle, turn right just after bridge track, boogie ride plus, rear end sqirming, front end not responding, down front main straight, up a gear, rear end wants to send front into Armco, or grass in field, brakes playing up, pedal too firm.

2nd session, wet again, more of same, fresh engine still very tight, does not like running under 2000 rpm, likes running at 7000 rpm, redline in 13bpp is 9500, did not go there.
Brakes really getting hard, pitted, with fronts near locked solid, and red hot!!  Cracked bleed nipples off,  pulled pads back, pistons jamming!
On trailwr and home.
Give me a Datsun anyday!!
