Wow what an unbelievable day. Such a long hike to and from Phillip island but totally worth it. Historic car heaven. It was great to meet Dimitri, Jason and Peter to put a face to a name. Took heaps of pics but I'll have to wait till I'm home to upload them.

I was there near my zed now and then.. Took Tim (RB30X) for a little walk around the pit area for a while then watched the racing from the display area. I had a green T-shirt on..

Word has it that there were over 5000 body there and it was the biggest turn out they have ever had. (Not the best week end to sleep in). Dame those early starts last week. I look forward to seeing some picks form the days

Amazing day. I have never seen Philip Island pull of weather that nice either! Went out and sussed a few of the race zeds too. Anyone own the white 240Z on jellybeans (or similar)?

 

Also, the orange metallic pearl V8 zed was off it's chops!

Actually I did, I bought a MiCam 508 lipstick cam with a mini dvr,  the week prior,but am still trying to learn how to use it, what with my impediments and all, managed to get the last race in full, it is on a SD card, and no matter how much i try to hit the little plastic SD card into the tiny slots for the usb's on my pc with my estwing builders  claw hammer,  it wont go in!

your not actually trying to put the card in your usb port are you :o?? If you are you need to but a reader for your card. Buy a mini/micro/standard SD to usb reader, they're only a few dollars!!

I don't know what's funnier, jasons description of getting the card in or Benny thinking he was serious.

Knowing Jason, Benny is quite right to be concerned about fitting a SD card into a USB slot, in fact I'm suprised Jason didn't lose the SD card in the CD carrier!!!! Although he may use that as a drinks holder ;D ;D

One thinks he has to carry a camera around with him all the time the other wants to poke the camera's memory card in the wrong slot, typical Datsun race car drivers :D

OH NO I am so confused, my brain hurts.

seriously I am not very electronic savvy and I have a severe eyesight problem, but yes they still let me race, differnet issue though it is with  with very close work i am having fun with, ie pc keyboard,  but I use a 22 inch monitor!

 

I am hunting desperatley for a pair of "Loupes" ????

Loupes, are what a dentist wears when he is gazing into your gaping maw as he attacks your fangs, sort of mini telescopes on a pair of glassed.

Anyone got some they can let me have, yes I am getting annoying, and grumpy
