Results are on natsoft, but only individual cars.
Wasn't there three teams of x no of Z's from Z Car Club Qld entered?

Yeah three teams of four.

As per usual though QR screwed up big time and forced Dusty and Cameron to pull out so my race partner and I could run.

Individually a few people did well but as a team most of us either pulled out early or were forced to try and sustain times with 23 other cars on the track.

In the end it was nice to get the car out on the track but I wouldn't do another reg organised by QR.

Some more photos and some of the competition . You can see how steep the roller coaster is by the bill board to the side. It is level

Yes it was to be a team event but as JK stated QR really stuffed up regards allocation of car numbers so it resulted in Dusty and Cam having to put out and this really stuffed up any hope we had as teams. But it was a good learning experience for me regards Regularity. I nominated a time that I believed that my car could do and it could but I constantly got stuck behind a Mustang that had set a much lower time and he blocked on the corners and just overpowered me on the straights. This happened in two of the sessions and at the last I just lost concentration and my times suffered, just about hit a fat arsed Porsche up the arse when he passed me at the Bus stop then he braked hard going under the bridge which I wasn't expecting, had to brake hard and swing to the left.

But overall it was a great day and I must express a special "thank you" to that Escort in the picture above, he blew his engine going under the bridge and dropped oil all the way to Hungry, this was on about lap six so our group had a restart and they gave us another 8 laps. So we really had 4 sessions and not 3 like the other 2 groups.

The thing I learnt about Regularity was to set a time below what the car is capable of, plus with mine because of the lack of torque and overtaking grunt I have to add more time for the times I get behind a car that makes it difficult for me to overtake.

Regards team results if I remember correctly all our teams came in around 16th or so, at least we weren't last.

Thanks to everyone who came along and offered their support.

I had a great day and at the finish of the last session I was totally exhausted.

Cheers
Peter

Went out for a look and was glad I did, excellent day. The problem with Dusty et al was car sharing wasn't it? Car sharing has been done there before so maybe it's something to do with the new timing system. Anyway it's a pity it that it spoilt the day for some because you buggers had a fine day, something I have been chasing all year so far  :)

If anyone is interested in a Lakeside sprint day I'm planning on both the 16th and 21st of June. There are usually one or two other Zeds there but more is always a good thing.

The problem was that they put all the shared drivers in the same group, obviously two people cannot drive the same car at the same time ..

So Dusty pulled out and gave Dan his number. All the information was provided by Peter to QR months ahead of time, then when they screwed up they didn't want to have a bar of it and just offered us all a full refund.

I need to get some things done before the next run but the 21st of June might be a goer.

With 10 laps for practice and 8 laps per session (3 sessions allocated for each group on the day) and because group 4 had a restart because of an engine blowup by the Escort on lap 6 of session 2 we actually got to have 40 + laps for the day at a cost of $140.00, excellent value.

No worries mate, I love the top pic of your car where the sun has hit the right spot in the centre of the bonnet. Or is it all the polish. The car looks great. What was your speed down the straight, as I had to be pretty fast with the camera to catch you as you can see by the blurred background. 8)

haha yeah, probably just the polish.

Couldnt tell you what speed I was doing as all I have is RPM but I was on limiter for half the straight, might have to run a 4.3 diff for lakeside and leave the 4.6 for Morgan Park.
