I was dreading the Tassie rounds. Now I know why. Not too late to offer a case or two of Farmers Union?

 

Be interesting to see if anyone breaks the 4 second barrier and also how the cars would go on 13.8 volts! Might be worth experimenting once the race is over.

 

Cheers

May the downforce be with you.

All our record holding is done on the blue track ( inside ) it,s the tightest except for corner 3 it's has the biggest radius from memory it's 104 cm this is where you can gain the extra time if your car is set up well you can go full noise thru here . so my guess is if the cars that are doing low 4's on yellow lane there is a very good chance they will break the record . Mind You it is sub 4 sec's allready Barry's panoz driven by Brad got under 4 sec,s

Thanks for posting the qualifying results. Interesting reading. So Phil's back on top again as predicted. The time differential between the top and lower end of the qualifying field is quite substantial this time, so we'll have to wait and see what that translates into on race day. :blink:

"9 Chenglaw ( Lim ) 4.454 nice but a bit hoppy out of corners"

Don't like the sound of that - could be bent axle/wheel or tyre out of round? :D Or worse, chassis cracking up? :( Oh well, the little Lola will just have to soldier on, nothing much I can do about it from here. :cry:

and he's a top bloke as well .

Rob was driving the red lane until personal injury cause his early retirement Barry had to take over as driver and Rob took on Duty's as marshall

Brad drove the Blue lane Brian on Yellow and I was on white Andrew marshalled and was also race controller.And My 11 year old Daughter Stevie Marshalled Corner 5 and done a wonderful job .

The results just go to show you how thing,s change .

The Cars are allready Packed and are in Hobart as i Type this Report . I would like to Thank Barry Brian , Brad ,Rob , Andrew, Stevie And Phil for Helping to make the day a success that it was . Unfornutally we did not save the laps on each lane (Each heat ) as we should have sorry for any inconvience this may cause but the end result is what matter,s And a thank you to Alan for giving us the opportunity to run the event and to all those that went to the effort to prepare cars and send them for us to Race .

Congrats to Fangio, Sports and Terry. And a real surprise for myself!!! ;):o How did my Lola get up to fourth? :lol: And just 2 sections off the podium, to boot. After Slider's comments on its qualifying form, I was expecting it to finish way down the list. And what happened to Phil? It looks like the form book's been turned almost upside down. Whatever it was, the guys involved must have done a masterful driving job - thanks to all and to Slider hosting this round on his great track. Well done! ;)

Congratulations to the top 3, Fangio, Sports and Terry, big thanks to all involved in the round and thank you to Slider for hosting the event. But seriously what is going on here, 9th for the SCX vintage Ferrari?, someone's having a laugh, think I'll just look back in the morning for the real results.

Great work Guys...Interesting race by the sound of it...Very different results from qualifying.

Nice work on the results Alan, very quick, certainly reinforces the view that this is one of the very best Proxy Races around.
