    Default SBS Speedweek this Sunday. 205gti in action

    This Sunday there will be a highlights package of the Wakefield 300 with the 205gti shaking up the opposition. The bad thing was I was interviewed for the show, please skip that bit!

    Wouldn't miss it - and I'm sure the car footage will be good.

    So what was the problem? Broken throttle cable???

    Well done, 30 years old and still quicker than a lot of highly fancied other race pedigreed cars!!!!

    OK I went back and found the earlier thread. Well done again. Makes me think that running dual cables may be a good idea. I've had one break at Phillip Island, but I was only 1 corner away from pit entry at the time - good thing too, car probably wouldn't have made it over the hill at idle.

    Great work. I still can't keep up with the MX5s in a straight line.

    The cable was being stretched, all we needed was a throttle pedal stop and we would have been in a good place for a podium for sure and win was on the table. You live and learn, it was a fun weekend with my mates! At least we got some very good coverage...

    Managed to catch a bit on TV yesterday. GREAT racing, much more exciting to watch than F1 Dunno about the Mazda 1,2,3 though!!

    Pity about the cable, but the 205 looked great on track amongst the big cars.
