    Good on you John - you are a 'doer' rather than a 'talker' and achieve results that others might wonder about (and help others at the same time to get their cars completed). Take a bow.

    A far cry from last year when I took an unfinished car out just to make up the back end of the field.
    Lots of Porsches and not a Ferrari in sight.
    Happily the car got through unscathed and only 3 last niggling problems to take care of.
    Photos?

    Sounds stupid when you go out there for a shake down, practicing the corners and then you see a photographer, and the first thing you think is- damn, dont want to be caught losing the car here on a ripple strip

  6. #1006
    John, I thought a ripple strip was an ice block, and what you doing looking out side window for any way fella, 'ahead of me is what matters, what's behind is behind'
    See you in a few days, if I got time will drop in on way to HD Thursday.

    See you all on Saturday. Looking forward to a spectacle and a couple of old Fiats running around....

    Okay, incentive time. Thanks to one of my sponsors Truck City, there is a grouse Freightliner sleeveless vest up for grabs for the best HMC photo from the weekends racing posted before Thursday lunchtime. It can be any HMC car, not just my Camaro.

    Couldn't resist it!

    Excellent photography there catching the moment.
    I have this on in car video as it happened right in front of me, does that count as an entry?

  13. #1013
    Due to Nigel being HMCs most defensive driver, and him racing this pretty valuable Mustang, he actually brake checked me just prior to this and rather than hit his right rear quarter I spun the Camaro to avoid him. Put the video footage on here John. And no, this entry doesn`t count!

  14. #1014
    You always go for the side on shots Steve, suppose it gives sponsor good coverage.

    You guys put on a good show, good on ya

    PS which entry does not count, yours into the corner or the video.

    I think `Hampton Holeshotter' is more appropriate Dale, given the traction problems you`re obviously experiencing in that 800hp Mustang of yours at the startline!! 6500 rpm and just side step the clutch, yee hah!!

  18. #1018
    Entry has been confirmed for HMC 70 Camaro racer Murray Brown this weekend at the Ferrari festival, Hampton Downs! here's Murrays Camaro leading the pack at Lakeside mid last year. Also joining us is John Dennehy in the Freighters MK 1 Escort that is to schedule K spec with correct 13" wheels and Avon bias tyres. Dale M

    Congratulations to all for providing some very entertaining racing at the weekend. The "close formation" lap at the end of the last race was an excellent idea.

    Thanks for noticing John A, as much as this event is about the historic cars its also about entertainment for the paying public and to thank the flaggies and safely crews, to my amazement the fences were lined with cheers and clapping so figured most thought it was cool, glad you enjoyed it and we'll do the same again after Sundays last race!!
