Hey Guys,

Im working so cant get down there to watch it.

However I have heard thru the grape vine that Hamish Lawlor has qualified 3rd overall in his Baracuda. Pretty good considering there are some machines worth over $250k racing.

Well done Hamish

I went and watched saturday, mind my language but holy sh#t!!! some serious gear there and man can they fly! Pitty a few of the auz challengers bombed out (not that im upset at all ;) ) or it would have been a great race with the front 6-8 guys. I talked to the manager of the top auz crew about their beast of a machine and it was a weapon! Sad it run a bearing on friday and didn't start. Met up with hamish and had a great chat and shared a lot of ideas and views and i mean a lot. Very glad i talked to him as he had heaps to look out for and mods that should be done. He did qualify 3rd and really blow everyone away with how well he went, As he told me when the marshall told him to take it easy as he wont qualify very well right before he did haha. At the end of the day he was in 6th and the busa wasn't even running properly, down on power for some reason. I was gutared I wasn't there today and i can't find out any results yet, hope he pushed into the top 5.
