Hi Dave,

Thanks for the update and especially the piccies - very noice....

Relatively happy with my first showing, but - way to go, Dale!!

Well done to the 'cast of the fast' ......
Cheers,

Tony.

There's only two questions:

1. What direction do you go
2. What's the Lap Record?

just as a reference

low 5.3 to high 5.5 sec lap times is a very good time for a GRP5 car on this track
anything quicker than that is just outstanding

Thanks DC and the HB team. First blood to Tony Cook, congrads to Aloha for 3rd - looks like a tight battle brewing at the top. Check out also the fight from pos 4 thru to 10 - looks like it will be brutal for the rest of the series.

Thanks to all concerned for hosting the race - congrats to the various Podiumites...

Hey Dale - what's it like having a target on your back? That's very impressive - we're pleased for you - (well, for now......)

I'll take 4th in class amongst this mob anytime.....
Cheers,

Tony.
