Thanks for that Rossko. It does look pretty close up the top and I'm just hoping my big ol' Carrera can hold on to its place.

Many thanks Ross. Hope you didn't need to 'solo' - that is a big ask on a cold day. Glad I haven't taken both last places this time too.

Bring on the Gp.5s...

Tyres are the key factors !!

A lot of cars tyres are rat S^%#>T ....

Orakei my friend your tyre preparation is the best I've seen ....,.

Aquakiwi- your A car body is leaning so it's put pressure on the car to ride heavy on one of the rear tyres

Aqua - your B car hated my red lane it struggled for grip but on the tightest corner it would turn left then snap left again out of the slot , I think it was picking up the front

 

Keith (Peter gunn) your car was a surprise well prepared tyres and congrats to you well done

 

Dave c your car liked the track as it move out to the faster flowing lanes and your tyres are shot I think they came on with some warmth in them

Congrates

 

Wobble your Porsche is massive but smooth and fast but it loves stopping for a wee - meaning it loves cocking the leg ... nice for a inline

 

Nitro your Chappy is well balanced just there is a bad mesh if you push the car it twists in the corner and you can hear the gears... get the gearing write an it's a beauty

Thanks Rossko and team for running Round 7. Congrads to you and Dave C on podium finishes. Nice to see some different runners in the top 5. Learned the hard way that good tire prep is 70% of the battle. One round to go - it's been a battle royal with AquaKiwi the whole series which is the best way to race. Good luck everyone on the next round.

Hi Gas41T/Rossco.

 

Thanks for well run round and congrats to Orakei Racer, you and David Carter for podium spots. Well done too to Peter Gunn (UK)in 4th. With Aquakiwi 6th this round could well be the decider for overall honours. Time will tell. Either way it has been a great competition. Photos great too.

 

Looks like I need to go back to NSR tyres again as I had until 2 years ago. They are certainly working well on OR's car. The N22's are good on smooth NZ tracks but appear to have been poor on Aussie tracks. Not sure if anybody else has been using same. Alternatively perhaps I need to go to Urethane as I have for all other Aussie events. Notice even my old NSR Ultragrip shod M20 bet my M6a.

 

Great to add the Aussie rounds to this event. Not only a timely reward for the many Aussies who have supported the Canam series over the last 6-7 years but an added perspective to this and future Australiasian events. I am certainly hoping Tasman Cup can have some NZ rounds at sometime in the near future (like the 1:1 event).
