Hi there and welcome. Nationals are definately not about going fast. We happen to have some track time, but we are group by speed and ability. We ahve more people that are interested in going out there and having a feel for what the car can do than what times they do. Worst case just come for the conversation and good food.

I have sent you a PM on the accomodation.

Cheers

Andrew

Guys, I am trying to send PM's but they are sitting in my outbox and dont appear to be going.

If you havent sent me your Shirt size (S,M,L,XL,XXL) and what you want for your novelty rego plate please PM me ASAP as if I dont have them by Monday I am going to have to have to guess.

Cheers

Andrew

Messages remain in the outbox until the receiver has read the message. Once they've read it, it will than move to your sentbox. Seems strange but once you know this it's kind of cool 8)

Good luck :!:

OK people, this is the last 2 days to get your orders in for Shirt Sizes and Plates. After Wednesday I CANNOT guarantee you will be able to get one of these items.

I also have only 4 track spots free (30 in total) and 6 people left to make deposits, so please get your deposit in ASAP as we are taking track spots on first come first serve basis.

Cheers

Ok I also have been working.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO COME THIS YEAR?


NUMBER 1

ImageWe have made contact with Kevin Flynn and him plus one of his Grade 3/4 instructor will be at Winton this year.
http://www.driverdynamics.com.au/
Kevin starts at the current TV show Test Drive. So he is a celeb.


NUMBER 2

Image
http://tractiontyres.com.au/
We will also acquire a tyre company to be there to give us advice re: tyre questions in general and be there when (touchwood) events happens. To be finalised but I am confident that Traction Tyre from Rowville will make their appearances.


EXCITING!

NUMBER 3

I also have donation from http://www.rotary13b1.com for their products.

NUMBER 4

Also I will be going to make some fire extinguisher brackets to be sold there at cost price. I will post some details and picture when I get it installed in my car.

Of course. The more the merrier. If you are after track time then you need to fill in the relevant forms and pay deposit. If not, just turn up.

Cheers

If you run me over at least there will be a doctor available. :lol:

Wombat's the nic that I use on some 4WD and camping forums, so I figured I had better not confuse myself by having multiple identities. 8)

its ok mate, we dont do it intentionally ;) we had an incident last year which involved 3 cars running over a freshly hit wombat on the way to Winton.

Also, I would be to confident of taka's DRing skills. He nearly lost his breakfast when we pulled over to inspect the damage :)

Cheers

Guys just a bit of an update. Due to a number of factors including change of owners and broken promises, but mainly that I didnt realise these other guys existed, we have moved the accomodation from Trekkers Rest (thats the last you will hear me mention that name) to the Benalla Leisure Park (no taka thats not what it means :p:)

The facilities are better (toilets and showers in each cabin), they are of a higher standard, they are providing all the meals on site for us and we managed to wrangle a pretty good deal.

Cheers

Andrew
