yup

3x 458.

Quinns car flew direct into Brissie last week...

Goober in the 360C is having a run! Crikey!

Scuddles big effort to go from Bathurst 12 hr straight to Clipsal...  big onya if he pulls that off.

Maranello are still negotiating on their 2nd 458, which is a used one, so they better agree a deal asap if its to be here in time! They'll prob want it at B12 as spares etc, also, the truck won't be coming back to Melb after I don't think. Prob stay on at Bathurst after the 12hr, then re-prep on Monday and go straight to Adelaide..... Same for Scud???

BIG couple of weeks!!!

Bit much to ask...
Scud'l probably stay on at Bathurst and then head down to Melbourne for the ARC forum event.  :p :thumbsup:

storm brewing....

Hi Guys,
                The b.o.p and test day booked for next Wednesday 14th of February, will now be just a practise day for those wishing to “shake down” their cars before Clipsal.
 
To perform an accurate balance of performance We needed the use of two different model 2011 F.I.A. spec cars as the “benchmark” (preferably a 458 Ferrari and a 2011 Audi), although we were promised the use of many cars when it came to the crunch only one Mercedes was available, this would not allow us to perform the B.O.P. accurately.
 
Over the next couple of weeks, I will endeavour to check all the G.T. spec cars before we get to Clipsal.
 
We are in the process of organising another date for Philip Island to run the b.o.p if this is not possible we will have to form some sort of parity based on race results and lap times using the F.I.A formula.

as usual, they don't even know what day of the week it is...

the 14th is a tuesday, and that's when the test is/was.

I'm going anyway.

I have a lovely Esprit Gt300 in the truck, and also an LP600....

Now I gotta find a slot for the Radical, bloody customers getting in the way!

Any news on the Ginetta that came and has gone into hiding?

I know there was talk of a 1 make Ginetta series starting towards the end of last year but no further news on this front.

Pretty fucking disappointing with massive fees to pay and little track time at clipsal.

Why did they want to run a BOP test at winton when they could use the OS rules from last year which I thought they were going to do?

Wayne park got a call from nayda, something about not showing at winton for the test and being in trouble.

Wayne said I was focused on Bathurst 12hr and couldn't give a rats if I wasn't at clipsal which is the truth.

Threats soon disappeared.
