And it was yellow to start with iirc. :)

I think that changed when they wnet to calling it a 560 version...

the 560 has a different chassis, they HAD to try something to fool us!

A guy on another forum made a quick trip down.. here is an extract:

When we got to our Hotel (Hotel Charles) it turns out Porsche had chosen it to be the hotel of choice for their 60th Anniversary guests. Perfect!

Image

Image
Carerra GT - this thing was parked in the hotel foyer. I've never seen one in real life. Blew my socks off.

Image
I made love to it with my camera, lol, seriously though, it's art.

Image

Image

Image
Our hotel room was small but cozy, the King size bed was extra comfy and it turns out the staff have all bought one as well, so too the Royal Family in England (note to self: must get the brand name off Nath!).

Image
Our hotel carpark later that night. I creamed my pants pretty much.

Image
Damn, so nice.

Image
Fuuuuu.

Image

Image
Race spec Porsche roadster.

Image
How nice are these wheels?! I've love some for my Golf.

Image
APR Golf R sporting some crazy retro graphics. Dean (driver) was nice enough to take a time out and chat to the boys.

Image
All caged up inside.

Image
New RAYS VR.G2 wheels on this Audi TT. So much quality JDM performance gear everywhere, even on the European cars.

Image
Rotary powered NB. Had to be heard.

Image

Image
Just Jap 400R.

Image
Donut King R35.

Image
Pressure was on these guys to win once again. Hearing this car launch off the next leg of the race sent a shiver down my spine.

Image
Glenny's factory backed RX8.

Image
We followed some cars after lunch to the start of their next leg. This STI had to be pushed to start.


Image
Targa finished up at the Hobart Casino so we headed over to check out the action. Looked and felt just like a JDMST meet!

Image
The Sale of the Century host Glenn Ridge's FD. Either he has good taste in rims, or the guy building his car has good taste!

Image
Brock lives on.

Image
Crazy shapes, immaculate vette.

Image
Check out the bonnet pins, a juxtaposition of old vs. new.

Image
What a beast this thing was, massive wheels too.

Image
My Dad had a mate who was trying to sell him one of these for me to drive. To think that my first car could have been an e-type!

Image
Kinky!

Image
Wide pug looked the goods.

Image
This was once my garage. Still miss my TME EVO every time I see one.

The old 308 was whistling along very well indeed, until it had a hard landing and has cracked the engine sump.

Having already missed several stages, it can be patched up and finish, but is essentially, unclassified.

Bugger....  :(

Car arrived back today.

very frustrating... It had it's drama right where it really just comes into it's own... the final 2 days are all fast open roads, where the 308 really makes up time over the Porsches and other cars in class..... but it broke before it got there!

decision time!

A.. if it had crew it would have been an easy fix... an hour or so could have patched it up to finish the event.
B.. Raise ride height?? (Already quite high)
C. Spring it stiffer? Wet weather grip??
D. Even bigger sump guard?? Already quite big, and it'll just hit the ground more often and harder unless you do B and/or C. Also need air cooling to gearbox so bigger sump guard a problem there

No, he hasn't crashed into the ground like that before....

I know what you're trying to insinuate, but you look like an even bigger cock while trying.

They're both mongrels to some degree...

But the white's car is all kinds of things!

An incredible car, and superbly done, but not in the spirit of the rules/game.

"Basically in the past the cars had to be pretty close to 100% factory delivered with a few exceptions (like ECU's).

Now pretty much you can run anything on the cars as long as they were either produced by the factory as an option or meets factory specs. The might not sound like much but it is as far as costs go. It pretty much means if the factory produces something for a car - even one of the rare competiton cars - you can add it to yours or basically build it to that stardard with comparable parts.

They also now allow a free range on cooling items (oil coolers, bigger radiators, etc) which in the past has been an issue because cars without them from factory used to have a lot of temp problems which made them unsuitable for these events.

Exhaust rules have changed so you can now run 15% bigger than factory."

So FF , can you please explain your observations and comments? Are the Whites breaking the rules? Are authorities turning a blind eye? Most sportsmen do whatever it takes to win!
