Wdmcrg Round Six 2006

Vinno's Photo Vinno 11 Jun 2006

Another round was run last night with winter setting in. The start was rain interrupted with rain trying it's best to put a dampener on our nights racing. A quick bit of work with the sheet plastic stopped that pesky drip on the third straight.

We had a few non starters due to the long weekend, which was a pity, as I am sure they would have enjoyed the niggling that comes with Sheep Station racing.

First up for the night was host V8 racing. It was a bit rough last night and it will be interesting to see if the cars last the full season. Glad I didn't donate a car this year.

A couple of pics from the V8's and Ambrose is trying hard to hold on. Didn't stay that way all the time but the new Stone Brothers motor helped keep him in front at times. There were suggestions he was using an illegal Fly motor but nobody complained when they drove it.

Open Sedans were up next. Bo's new Ninco Megane was quick and he kept this a secret until right beforehand. I was sworn to secrecy. As usual Dave came along with something different and quietly beat us with his Ninco Pro Race Mitsubishi.

Bo tried hard as can be seen here. I am sure he didn't leave the track here too with the car dropping back into the slot. At least I don't remeber having to marshall it after I took the pic.

Nothing from the marshalling this time, more racing issues than anything. Lots of crashes so everyone was taking each other out.

I think we need to remember we are only supposed to be having fun. Some funny issues regarding certain rules and how they are interpreted which we need to clear up for next year.

We will see what happens as your rallying is looking more interesting. Can't complain about other drivers doing time trials.

Yeh .... and as far as marshalling goes ....... just don't come off

On the subject of rallying,I am in the process of extending my rally track.
It is now in the side shed(tea & coffee area) and will give us about another 10 mtrs
The new section will be a lot tighter and rougher
That should be around 35mtrs total :P ;) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Gary :P

Now that sounds cool. :P. Another 10 metres will be great, as if the 25 wasn't enough. I take it shooting was a touch cold and wet?

Looks like a Chrysler Cruiser with a BMW grill.

You plan on "cruzing" to the shops this weekend? :) ;) :P
