    Thanks Simon, we are running well in the Mi16. Managed to beat a few EVOs and WRXs yesterday in the hills. Surprised myself. One of their crews said, 'there is something more under that cars bonnet than you can see from here...' Into Friday now, hoping to do better. Come and see us at the Parc Ferme and Ill lift the lid for a better look for you. Peter Male.

    Not looking at results, car is great but I'm still getting up to speed on my first bitumen rally. Also I have no experience on these roads, most of the field is local and has pacenotes. Not saying that I'm not doing OK but concentrating on getting the driving up to scratch.

    It's another lovely day! Again!

    Wise approach, and in agreement with the old adage "find the line and the speed will come." I am sure you will do great.

    Where were the photos taken? Are you able to pm me the photo of the Mi16 so I can send on to a Tas. driver of 15 years ago in Targa Tas.
    Thanks

    I've not looked at any results either, the event finishes this evening at Victoria Park in the Adelaide Parklands. The progressive results are on this site: Shannons Adelaide Rally - Results

    I've not seen any pics either, and (unfortunately - as I can hear them!) won't be able to get out and about to see them today. However there are plenty of experienced photographers presently out there such as John Lemm and the Sports Car Safari crew who are much better at taking pics than I. If I see any, I'll post them up here with the source.

    I was able to get to Gouger St very briefly last night, to witness the thronging crowd out for a perve of Graham's 309 GTi :-)
