Drive to Phillip Island this Sunday

Post by Little Brapper » Wed Nov 26, 2014 4:53 pm

Hi all. I am taking Little Brapper to Phillip Island this Sunday to watch Ric Shaw race his new RX8 race car. I plan to get there at about 8am when the track opens. Anybody want to come along?

Bring your equipment down and we can ask him. Did you want to drive together?

I'm known to have punctuality issues, so best give me a time to be @ PI, with time to set up (if needed etc). And I'll do my best do get there.

I heard you have some big ideas with you exhaust system, we can chat about that on the day ;)

Sounds good. I am going to try and get there when the track opens at 8am on Sunday but I think Ric won't be on until later.

Need pics please
Fellow Rotor fans gather now for our daily prayer.....

As I lay rubber down the street,
I pray for traction I can keep,
But if I spin and start to slide,
Please dear god protect my sweet ride.

Amen

Thanks for sharing. Any chance of getting some videos of the cars on the track?

Will be interesting to see the comparison laps with the Mazdaspeed turbo that Ric raced at the same track
