I'm getting a bit worried that they will turn up on time. Wednesday night will be the first Brama club night of the season so we expect a good turn out. However, if push comes to shove, then we could delay it to the following Wednesday.

We have decided to have three drivers for each stage (six in all) at the Brama stages. They will all be of the same standard, high, and alternate. I actually think this is fairer as using the same driver for all 42 cars means that he (or she) is very tired at the end and that isn't fair for the last few cars. There's also a bit of competition between the drivers to get a fast time.

I saw you guys on video getting tired with aching fingers. Three hours continuous driving is too much, even for an Aussie. At my age I'm knackered after a three minute race! :wacko:

I've had just four requests for the choice of location for photgraphing your cars, and each one is different! If you don't make a choice, I'll do it for you. No problem.

In the cleavage of that sultry temptress who bonked Inspector Montallbano in last nights episode.

Failing that, forest for me please.

OK, location for the Castellano track is now finalised - Bar Bellavista, where the track sat for some nine months waiting for the club room to be built around it, which never happened. It's a lovely room and well-lit, so good for the photos too. We can set up on the Saturday (6th Oct) and, all being well, run the stages on the Sunday. Depending on how many bodies we have helping there will be either one or two stages, the full track for certain and hopefully the two-lane section as the second stage..

All systems go. We just need the cars now!

Like you Gaz, I'd be like a dog chasing a car, what would I do if I caught it. :P

Bit like planes, sitting at Brisbane Airport since 7 am waiting for my flight - delayed again :angry:

That'd be right. Darned foreigners come in here and lower the tone back to the usual standard.
