    Peter, John, Angus and I will be there Saturday and Sunday. Main race is on Sunday 1:30. Saturday is a full day as well with Practice and Qualifying. We are hoping to get in the top 10 and for the first time take part in the top 10 shootout! Long shot but going for it...

    I will be going on Sunday, will take the 205 Si and go the interesting way through Yea and Bonnie Doon. I will phone Parry on Sat evening though to make sure he is going to start the race.

    I dropped in to the pit garage this morning and was made very welcome by all, thank you. As the race start neared I went up the hill and spectated, the car was lapping very consistently and as it transpired was one of only 3 cars on the lead lap at the finish. Great result, congratulations to all of the team.

    Thanks, everything went to plan. Matt and Parry were flawless. We led the race for approx 25 laps until we pitted. Dropped back to forth or fifth, then clawed our way back up to first, until the Ginetta realed us in. The 3rd placed car, an Evo Production Touring car was closing on us towards the end but we held on with approx 17 secs to spare.

    I intended to be there but my Ford decided to have cooling issues only discovered the night before leaving no time to fix it.
    Luckily it was streamed live on Blendline TV.
    Congratulations to Matt & Parry for their Class win and 2nd Outright.
