Ted didn't have any problems at all. He's a top guy and having a blast.... realising his dream this weekend.... Racing at an F1 event...

in qualifying, he got his best lap when JB slowed to tow him along, and his reaction at going 5 seconds faster in JB's tow will stay with me forever...

ambition fulfilled... age 72!

He is a proud man and hates coming down the order, but he knows his limitations.

In the race, he got badly baulked at the start and then got biffed to a standstill by Fountas, and from then on it was all over...

the last lap was crazy.... Ted got nutmegged by the fight for the lead at the 2nd last turn!!!!!!!!

and no goober... sorry, I'm not spannering for JB this weekend.... sorry to spoil your thrill at his lack of speed being down to my poor skills.

Hector had his prayers answered today... he's now trying to sell not just a 430GT3 race winner from Europe, but now it's the AGP pole position car too!



Thats great to Hear. Its always a pleasure talking to Ted at the race meetings always so enthusiastic about the car and the races.

Quite a mixed up result from yesterday

You'll have to excuse me but i'm really happy to see Dave Stevens up there with some competitive times for the basic Challenge spec car (and even more pissed I'm stuck in Adelaide this weekend)

Phil what was Ted's troubles today? surely the last thing you guys wanted this weekend were mechanical dramas being possibly the last run for the car

Ted had a throttle pedal potentiometer connection failure.... I think, based on the array of errors in the ECU when it returned to the pits.

The car was working perfectly again once it returned though... So I hope fixing the connections (that were a bit dry/corroded) will prevent it happening again.

Ted was so pissed off, he took us to Vlados, but we only drank Fox Creek, not Grange tonight.



goober

the yarra valley stuff not good enough for you
