Nice. If the track didn't get rained out yesterday, I would've been able to race the next week but I have to wait another week now until I get to race.

Did this last night at Sydney Speedway in a Practice night.



What these picture don't show is me spinning twice, than the night getting washed out.

But today I did this.

Ran my first race meeting of the season yesterday. Finished 6th, 5th, and 5th in my 3 heats, and finished 5th in the A-Main, in one of those "If I had one more lap" races. Nearly ended up with a tyre barrel as a passenger in my third heat. Next race should be in late December.

Was supposed to run at Nowra Speedway in Modified Productions two nights ago, but it was cancelled due to threatening bush fires in the surrounding areas. Don't know when my next race meeting is, having a bit of time off from racing due to my Dad having knee surgery at the end of the month.

Repeat of Bathurst 1000 '92 happened. 2nd and 3rd crashed, ending the race, yet allowed to stay 2nd and 3rd. So I finished 4th.

First race meeting of 2014 was good. Finished 5th in the A-Main with very little vision and a broken right rear shock.

Raced at Nowra on Saturday (25/1). Didn't have a good night. Experimented with a new right rear in the A-Main, but due to the design of the rim, the tyre was rubbing against a sharp inside guard, and it went flat, so I had to retire. Next meeting is the 15/02 at Nowra in 1600 Sedans.

Broke the steering rack in heat 2, starting raining during the meeting, and we were the first race out after it stopped so the track was complete shit.

Well my car sucked a bunch of dick tonight. Full throttle around the track and losing 5 seconds a lap. NSW Championship next weekend, hope it's a quick fix.

The tube that runs from the back of the engine through the firewall to the oil pressure gauge split, so oil was leaking into the cabin, all over the battery, gearbox, and my feet, so he had to retire early at risk of catching fire in the cabin, and blowing a motor. Finished 7th in Heat 1, but DNF heat 2.
