    Default 205gti going in as Favourite at the Wakfield 300

    Guys,

    Its that time of year again. The 205 with its XU10 will be hot favourite for a podium finish in this weekends Wakefield 300 B main race.

    This year I am teaming with another mad Aussiefrog, Brett Watters from Adelaide. Pit Crew is also aussiefroggers, Peter Taylor and Adrian.

    If you are in the area pop in and say high.

    Lets make the Lion proud!

    Regards,
    Parry

    Just trying to organize a second driver for the trip.

    ***EDIT-will I gain access to the pits or is it restricted to only the drivers and support crews?

    Sorry for late reply, yes you have access to pits. We have enough hands on deck this year, but always good to have friends around. To get access to pit wall you must sign in at control tower as pit crew. On Sunday you must have long sleeve shirt as there is refuelling.

    Well worth the drive up from Melb to watch the race. The car is a real weapon & ably piloted by Parry & Brett and a great support team as well.
    Well done to you both.

    Small summary of the weekend. We had a great car and a fantastic professional team. We were so good we put the car in 2nd place on the grid and had a good chance of taking a podium on the day.
    Unfortunately we had a throttle cable snap and lost 10laps. The pit crew was able to repair the car and get me back out in under 6 minutes. Positive was that we were able to get 2 laps back on the leaders. We passed the leaders twice!
    A big thank you goes out to all my pit crew and drivers for their focus and dedication.
    Cant wait till next year.

    Wow, such good work. A pity about the cable, but that's racing.
