I keep on hearing that the days of the rotary are over, and yet Peter Ingram in the RX7 is bringing the big trophy from the Adeliade 500 meeting back to NSW. Well done, perfectly prepared and brilliantly driven. There's plenty of life in them still =D> =D> =D>

I honestly don't see much difference Shane, in the early days I'd turn up at a race meeting and the legend Barry Jones would be working on the Rainbow Warrior. Ken Douglas would have all of the latest Motec stuff on the RX7 that often wasn't even available to buy, together with Issy from SelectMaz calling the shots. Phil Morris in the immaculate FJ20/24 Datsun, a personal favourite of mine, Roger Hurd in the amazing A9X, not witnessed an A9X handle like that one around corners and in a straight line. Andrew Brown's RX3 and then RX7 with a level of engineering that I'd never seen before in IP. Wayne Wakefield in the RX3 Waggon with another rotary legend in Phil Laird working away on it. Rohan Ambrose, now there was a guy who could engineer the hell out of a rotary.

It may look good through the rose coloured glasses of time passed, but I really don't see much difference. There has always been cars in IP with extraordinary engineering support behind them and decent amount of driver skill. But always there was the masses who make up the vast majority of the field, beavering away achieving big things with only their own resources. =D> =D> =D>

mikrace wrote:=D> =D> =D> WOW, looks like we are going to get some great racing!!

Does anyone know what weight/restrictor size Andy is running?

Good luck everyone and stay off the concrete and each other!! :D


I'm running a 38mm Restrictor, the little bit extra power seems to be a fairly even balance now to the cars who would have pulled away on straights before, now we're pretty even.
