After a few months hiatus from the Burrows Drive Days at Eastern Creek, team Uber were back in force.  Not much force, but still there.  In fact, it was more like a feather tickle in my case after detecting a slow leaking tyre just before lunch.   :waah:

Murphy's Law was the real force for the day...  I was running a new Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, so therefore of course I got my first ever puncture.   :doh:

But at least there was a fantastic array of machinery on display.  Everything from a newly completed GT40 replica having its first shakedown run, to iridescent Lambos, a pair of 458s, a stunning SLS, and even an old Bentley wafting around.

Many more track and pitlane photos on my site as usual:  http://www.flamestone.com/gallery/automotive/track-days/burrows-may-2011

No.  Put together by Corse Automotive - the same team that put together the racing GT40 that I pit crewed for last year.

This one is part of a collection that includes an Aston Martin DBS and Ferrari F40.  I hope to be shooting them all together in the coming months, so watch this space.   :D

I only asked because I used to own a warehouse next to Intune before they moved. everyday they would roll out and then roll in a F40 replica that was merely the shell, chassis, seat, roll cage,steering arms, brakes and radiator... I was wondering if they had finally got an engine and tranny into it... Guess not lol.

I wasn't sure if I should mention this part of the GT40's day...  but the owner just sent me this public video...  so I guess it's , errm, public then.   :scratchchin:

You'll want to watch right to the end...

Great GT40. Someone once told me either take the first corner at Eastern Creek quickly or slowly - never in between!
