    Default Gordini at Powercruise!

    Just bumping in for Powercruise tonight, you know.. Summernats but at Western Sydney.

    There are some incredible vehicles getting about, I think I've found a couple of gentleman who understand cylinder heads too. Oh, I've never seen so many twin 4 barrels carbs sitting on top of blowers and tunnel rams in all my life. And since that's my jam at the moment it should be a fun weekend.

    Anyway, in true super dork fashion I had to dress up my steed for the week.

    Everything else here has GT stripes, but does anyone else here have a Gordini?

    I take it back, I don't want to know who you are. Powercruise is the worst thing I have ever seen.

    Funny we should mention Bogans and wet T shirt competitions. I was camped on the hill at Bathurst one year in the early 1980s (complete with my mullet). Some of the regular Bathurst Pilgrims had erected a quick stage scaffold to get them up above the crowd. They had a large plastic funnel tied to the scaffold and connected to a bit of garden hose leading to the ground, this was their toilet. All was going well for the lads until an impromptu wet T shirt contest broke out behind the scaffold, as the lads in the scaffold all rushed to one side to view the spectacle, the whole scaffold toppled over onto the crowd injuring 7 peeps.

    That was the last year they allowed spectator built scaffolding to be erected on the hill. Not sure what happened to the T shirt contestants.

    I don't want to appear to be culturally insensitive, there really is just another world view going on that I'm not privy too, nor can I truely appreciate.

    Yes but now take that, and put it on the GP circuit, then add 80-90 cars at once, remove all the usual spotters and flag marshals, throw in 5 x recovery vehicles whom are constantly lapping and digging ppl out of dumb places / picking there wheels up of the ground as their sic 20" spinners flew off as they were trying to correct a slide. Now imagine smoke covering entire corners and folk still charging into it adding to the smoke.. Imagine recovery cars stopping to assist the broken VK, VL, XE, XF, XC, EH, R31, Torana as they sit dangerously on corner exists, and still their fellow competitors skid past them supercharges blazzing..

    Then take all that, times it by 3 days, add in camping and booze everywhere..

    Actually the best quote came from one of the cleaners..

    "...I was up at the camp grounds collecting a small armoury of woodstock tinnies where one of the mothers threw a used dipper at me exclaiming at the time that the bin was full."

    Better there than on the streets though, and the circuit organisers get to charge for the privilege! The cleaners are likely on overtime, everyone wins!

    I don't know... It looks like we will have to patch some damaged timing loops from excessive "moments of loss of traction" during this "cruising" event.

    Next time I'm taking leave.
