2021 Touring Car Proxy - posting

Recommended Posts

Canberra was covid free for nearly a year. The local govt are pretty strict and have shut down everything at the moment. We can't travel more than 5 ks and no visiting anyone unless life threatening and even then no more than 2 people meeting together. 

The harsher the lockdown the quicker we're back to normal. 

At this stage lockdown is until 2 September but the hardest part of a 14 day lockdown is the first 8 weeks. :D

ALS car has finally made it to Braidwood from USA.

I checked but I can't see the water marks where it swam the whole way. :D

And ArroldN's car is here.

Just waiting for German customs to realise that Lance's cars are supposed to go to Australia, not Austria.

That's why as soon as the lockdown restrictions allow home visits we'll start racing and I'll work out the scoring for the 2 missing cars when I get them.

Do you plan to run my car on your test track. Curious to see how it does against the other cars.

No, I sure he said he would do it this (UK) afternoon, so he is probably editing the videos now, and they will be uploaded in a couple of hours...

OK, I said I would do it.

No need to remind me every 6 months. :P

That's great news. Now all we need is local covid restrictions to ease and allow home visits. Even if they allow only one visitor we could get this show on the road.

There's talk of some restrictions being eased 17 September and I'll try for Peter's track.

2 lane copper tape track so there won't be any issues with magnetic downforce. :D

The anticipation is palpable.:unsure:

The tension mounts :wacko:

Will the foreign cars be able to cut it on Aussie tracks? :blink:

.. or will they be sent home battered and bruised ?:huh:

Or in my case, will the power of the motor be able to overcome the friction from the gear mesh and move the car in a forward direction. 

But it looks like Mr Gunn might have worked out a way through all the smoke and mirrors!
