Artie on edge ...their calling Tisha what? :shock: Who are they give me their names... I'll have their PM ability disabled. :lol: :lol:
Its not the buggys fault that the driver (thats what I call myself others have special names for me) has no finesse, its the driver who trashes the buggy. :cry:

Lucky it wasn't there as there is only room for three wide on the start grid. :roll:

Phil I forgot to say considering how much heavier your frame is it does not seem to effect it performance.

I have posted a short vid of Finggers hitting dirt that I accidently deleted from original vid. Could have been messy.

Thanks Mark, why SO much carnage? Seems like when the Baz is away...the buggies will play! :lol:
I was'nt there to "Keep the Bastards Honest!" ala Don Chip! :lol:

Marie has been battlin' this asthma for a while,and now it's turned into Bronch probs as well. Last meet we were at,had to get home early from Troy's at Baker's Hill Sun to get her to RPH for treatment.
The Northam dust did'nt help any.
Oh well,next time then.
Anyone else get full race vids? (Kelly went and did a 40 hr Famine thing at her mate's)

Yeah, I've got some good Vid, it's in HDV, now that I've got a decent laptop ($6000 worth - could'ver bought a Busa, but the lappie makes me money) I'll load it into Premiere Pro and edit it. Don't hold your breath though. I'm using my time at home to get stuck into the barra build.

Has anyone advised the track owner that those tyres will kill someone.
What do they do other than offer a large imovable object to crash into.
What's the reason behind them?

The idea is to stop a buggy/vehicle from crossing over and into the on coming traffic.
Damo was lucky he missed it.

yep
this has been discussed within the group and will be getting something done about it before the next event

They are actually there for the holden and fords to stop them from running head on into the other section of track
Normally the superlites havnt been running off track but this time there was alot of bush walking happening
Thats the first time they have been in that particular spot and hopefully the last
There are some more at the end of the main staright that gave me the shivers :shock:

you and me both Ray . especially as its on the fastest part of the track in the s bend . you would only have to catch it with your back tire at 10 klicks . god only know's where you will end up .
