I’m absolutely wrecked. My body is so sore from bracing myself all day on the circuit (I really need a bucket seat). The only thing working for me right now is red wine.
Just got back from Wakefield. Stayed the night before, but that just meant getting to the track at 7.30AM, thus more track time than I’ve ever had before. The car broke, my spirits broke when I failed to get a lap time I was after (silly I know)… none of that matters but. Right now I’m just really sore!
Dale from DM Motorsport dropped in to Zen Garage after hours to work some wheel alignment magic on my MX-5.
Unfortunately the bushings on my car are so far gone Dale couldn’t do a great alignment for me.
He just did the best he could.
9PM I’m at Pheasants Nest. KK’s!!!
I even got to watch some of the X-Factor Final. LOL.
Couldn’t resist taking a shot of NA8C, all alone outside.
After everyone got the Pheasants Nest we convoyed to our motel in Goulburn. I was the only one who got a room to myself. VIP YO!
7am, we’re up!
Breakfast of champions.
Morning Dave, morning Cordy!
Dom, who organised the day led the morning briefing.
Love the 370Z wheels + rear wing on this S15. Fresh!
NA IS BEST!
This ISF has had a lot of engine work done apparently. Killed me on the straights but I caught him in the corners.
Dad let his son drive this all day long.
Mini scored the 2nd fastest lap time of the day. Seeing it get it’s rear wheels in the air on turns was rad!
My best so far. Fuck fuck fuck you 1.16.
Then my car sounded a billion times louder. I pulled into pitt lane, kicked my exhaust and realised it was just dangling there. The weld on the cat had completely split!!!
I googled “exhaust shop Goulburn” and these guys rocked up. Pro-State Exhausts.
Luckily for me they were awesome guys who squeezed me in, got the car fixed and I was back out on the circuit in no time. Unfortunately the clutch gave way on me and that put a nail in it. What made things worse was my exhaust was rubbing against something at a certain rpm making my trip home hell hitting 110. The only way to stop the vibrations was to cruise at 130 which I did despite spotting MANY cops on the other side (I just hope I didn’t get done).
