  1. Please also take note of the Porsche race . It is a once through the lanes at 20 minutes per lane . So a 2 man team will obviously have a driver change at the 10 min mark under green . If you have nominated a 4 man team it will be a driver change under green every 5 minutes. Maybe you might change your nomination with that in mind ? Happy to go with either option has Brooksy has worked out the program to suit 16 teams if required. Please let us know if you do want the nomination changed as soon as possible. Cheers Pagey
  2. Please make sure you have a close look at start and finish times of schedule. Due to the amount of racing and track time that Jason has organised for us itโ€™s important to be on time and allow travel times to and from if you are traveling especially from interstate.We cannot hold up the event for late competitors. ShellHarbour Junction railway station is approximately 2hrs from Sydney airport. The train actually runs out of the domestic terminal. You have one change at Wolli Creek then straight through to Shellharbour Junction on the South Coast Line. We can pick you up from station only 2km from venue. 1.Go into Apps and download the Opal Travel App. 2. Go to trip planner. 3. In current location type Sydney Domestic Airport Station 4. In destination type Shellharbour Junction 5. Times will be shown - select Departing Now it select date and time. You can get a ticket at the station booth or use your credit card at the train station. 6. If using card, make sure you have tapped on and off at station entry and exits. Looking forward to catching up and racing again at the Bull Ring . Cheers Pagey
  3. Thanks Brooksy for stepping up as our race director again . Your professionalism is already evident with the program. Really appreciate your efforts. ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  4. 16 racers tonight . A few away with the holidays and Jim crook ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ Get better soon Jimmy. We continued the 1/32 Aussie V8 class and MZ Plafit classes. First up was the Aussie race cars . Brooks was again a cut above but when the bonnet went up he had the wrong donk ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ˜ฌ I donโ€™t know if it was going to make a difference but it does have to be apples with apples . So this week again a disqualification. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Pagey was next so 1st place . Benno in a Pagey loaner for 2nd and Chris for 3rd . A really nice drive by Serge also in the same car as Ben for a solid 4th place . ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Dunlop MZ was a great shoot out with Belly pushing Captain all the way to the end . Jules was fast and running strong along with Jamie sugar ant ๐Ÿœ. Geoff also keeping them honest. Results ended up with Captain ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โœˆ๏ธ 1st , Belly for 2nd just point 4 behind and Jules for 3rd . Super MZ was a nail bitter all the way. A four car shot out between Chris , Ben , Pagey and Brooksy going down to the wire. Bad luck hit Ben when he was out in front , dropping in back in the pack . Brooksy suffered a jump start losing a lap as a penalty also . Results ended up with Chris 1st , Benno for 2nd and Pagey for 3rd . The laps between the four cars was nothing. Great racing and very close . Just a reminder that next week is Friday night due to Anzac Day. Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Easter. Thanks for the support. See you next week. Cheers Pagey

    Track line marker

    Simply masking tape . Itโ€™s so easy an quick . Not expensive in my option. Mask the braid and then mask out 5-6mm for the colour. I just then used a paint brush with small sample tins of enamel paint from Bunnings.

  8. Ok looking at the calendar for the next couple of weeks and in consultation with Jim we have decided on the following. Next Thursday night as per normal. The following week is Anzac Day . So racing will be on the Friday night instead . The Classes are still 1/32 V8 and MZ for the month . Cheers Pagey
  9. 18 drivers at the Bull Ring tonight. Two new classes had everyone hoping that there car set up would work. First up was our Aussie race cars . 1/32 Plafit chassis with Lexen V8 Bodies. Taking a while to getting our driving style dialed into these little buggers . Fast and fun with plenty of space for close racing. Brooksy the master of 1/32 kept up his form taking the win . Benno in a Pagey loaner for second with Pagey on the bottom step . The 12hr Enduro on the weekend for all 3 of us.So I suppose driving another slotcar was standard for us this week . Dunlop series in the MZ had controversy! Greg with a nice drive first across the line along with Vito also on the podium. However the National rules for this class has a body weight and overall weight. Drivers were told that podium cars would be tested . Greg and Vito were under weight with bodies . Greg by a massive 12g . ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฌ So adjusted results are Troy 1st , Jamie 2nd and Big Al for what I can remember his first podium at the Bull Ring . Awesome Al ! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป The Super series had some rocket MZ cars on track . Chris , Brooksy , Ben and Charles were very fast . The results were very close and it looks like a class that will be interesting this month . 1st again was Brooksy with Chris 2nd just over Pagey. Looking forward to having Cam back in the mix also when he returns. Ben has launched a Facebook page also for maybe broadcasting some racing at some stage. The Bull Ring is the name to search if you want a look . With Anzac Day and Easter in the next couple of weeks I will post our program in a day or so when I look at a calendar. Thanks for the support everyone Cheers Pagey

    Rod also had a strong drive in the Rivercity 12hr on the weekend. Plus is a constant top driver at the Bull Ring . His hair and hats are another mater . ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    River City 12 hour Enduro

    Plus the effort in car prep . All the little things that add up to lots of things . Noel is never satisfied with the car . Continuing to keep developing it till the last minute. Very well deserved win with modest champions . Makes me want to keep improving to chase them down . We need benchmarks to better our own levels . Not have a defeatist attitude.

    River City 12 hour Enduro

    My only comment on those stats is what I expected in Qld . Qld donโ€™t crash !!! We spoke of it on the 12hr drive up . Donโ€™t crash as they wonโ€™t . I think in 12hrs Ace drivers , Noel had one off that I witnessed. Werner very much the same and Jon was terrible with less that a hand full . Our team had more than that in the first bracket. Awesome consistent racing with fantastic concentration for 12hrs . If anyone questions those results watch the video. It doesnโ€™t lie . Great driving Champs . ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    River City 12 hour Enduro

    That Graf that Jim was good enough to put together is really helpful. We lost in total with all our dramas 120 laps over the 12hrs . Meaning we were in touching distance of ace . But remember they were in cruise mode for along time in the back end of the race driving very sensible. While we were at full attack mode for 6hrs . ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
