    Dale, isn't there one of your boys that took his Camaro right back to suit your class after it had been all changed.

    Yes Rod, Murray Browns 70 Camaro, original built for Super GT then ran in Central, after 10 years he was going to sell it but decided to convert back to HMC and have a bit of fun, it was a lot of work and many $$$, was all fiberglass front, 4 bar in the rear etc so quite a mission. Dale M

    I find it interesting in the different psychology between racers when it comes to meeting the rules within HMC, and changing ones racer to comply, here is Murray Brown whom made a massive effort to make its Camaro fit the class, and it was major undo I'm telling yar let alone the $$ spent, then on the other hand I have another racer interested in HMC and all they have to do is go down one wheel size and down size their front brake rotors(even their calipers are correct) but NUP, not gunna do it! you need to change the rules for me! Has anyone ever heard of the term "When Hell Freezes Over" LOL.

    Anyway, if you read the last Newsletter you'll see i've been onto even our current compliant racers to tidy there cars up, mostly small items like making sure headlights work, wipers, passengers seats, arm rest and window winders, inner fenders, etc, because if you let this compliance leakage slip by in 10 years time the cars would be nothing more than chopped up Sports Sedans. Offcourse any racer can choose not to do those small items and race else where, plenty of other non-complaint Hot-Rod class's to race with.

    Other interesting news is i got tipped of today that we have 70 Big Block Camaro coming to HMC, owner wants to keep it road legal, more on this one later and more the merrier I say

    Agree with what you say Dale. It's the old quarter of an inch story where one competitor cribs a quarter of an inch on something and gets away with it then over time everyone follows suit and eventually the rules are changed to accommodate this and then it's another quarter of an inch and so on.......

    Purchased out of Oregon, USA Dave and Ken Sturrock picked up from the shippers Friday Kens new HMC 67 A-Sedan Camaro and tested today at Hampton, Ken flew out from his home in Texas to test for the first time but Dave promptly went out and clocked a 1:17.6 out of the box on old tyres and a cold track, its USA A-Sedan 302 engine sounded awesome pulling 7500RPM up the main straight. A few minor compliance issues to meet HMC regs which Ken is more than happy to do and its ready to race, a great addition to HMC for this coming season. Welcome on-board Ken, its a beautiful high quality built Camaro.

    Ashley Sherlocks LH Torana now on 15 wheels and Hoosier tyres, doesn't it look BAD. He's just filing his COD and he'll almost ready to join the HMC ranks, great to see more Aussie cars joining in!! Ashleys a great supporter of Auckland Car Club events and with a HMC legal car he can pretty much race anywhere he likes.
