Lakeside Sprint Dates for June 2012

Recommended Posts

16th and 21st are the days I anticipating going, depending on the weather of course. There usually is a Zed or two there but more is always a good thing :)

 

Note the edit, some duffer got the months mixed up  :-[

You should be alright, Lakeside seems to run on its own weather system :P

 

I won't be back up there until Aug 18th? I think it is for Round 3.

Weekend just gone, saw John McKeon in his red and yellow liteweight marque sports 3.2 litre injected 240 get absolutely hammered by a tiny little Datsun 2000Sports.

Stan Adler in the 2.7 Carrera won all events.

It was a full on race meeting, with historic sports, prod spirts, clubmans and others.

 

Oh, and no the Dato Sports 2000 was not mine, but another, also in original as raced way back in the day spec!

You need to look at the fastest lap times before getting carried away Jason, McKeon was doing in the mid 62's which Richard Graham for one did at LapZ in his targa Z, which as we know is pretty mildly tuned. The 2000 was doing in the 61's which is not bad but far from being something to get too excited about. From memory Lee Falkner got down into the 59's at LapZ although he was using slick tyres.

Historic cars on old fashioned size tyres, McKeon was running on old concrete slicks.

Not much point us Hysteric guys getting all super sticky slick shod, for the odd lap dash event.

Henderson's 2000 Sports is on par with mine, we are racing at Eastern Creek June 30/july1, then at Morgan Park Historics July14/15, we have a ripper of a time dicing with the bigger HP group S cars.

There are cruise days where you do laps at a restricted speed, good way to learn the circuit. Alternatively enter a sprint as a beginner and you will be put in the slowest group. Getting started is the hardest bit :)

Beautiful day today, warm sun and a cool breeze, ideal. Only other Zed there on the sold out day was Martin in his 300ZX who laps very consistently in the 60's. My Zed ran faultlessly and on the Federal semis I managed a PB banzai lap of 59.86 using the new transponder timing system which I am rapt in, always wanted to do a 59, yea :) Fastest road registered car too I think. http://www.natsoft.com.au/cgi-bin/results.cgi?16/06/2012.LAKE.P1

 

Took some video so if there is anything interesting I'll put it up on YouTube in due course and link it.
