There is food at the track. Food is pretty good, just the normal race track type food. Will definitely be available on Saturday and Sunday, not 100% sure about Friday but I would think so

18th on lap 1 to 3rd!!! Geez what an effort for a Nationals! Well done Chris Brown =D> =D>

What happened to Cherry with a few laps to go?

How didn't the WRX that was 1 sec faster than anyone else lead the first lap?

What was #5 excluded for?

You guys will claim anything just so you have someone from NSW at a Nationals. I was a member last year so you probably clam part entry for me too?

Rays car is a dark blue which is more Vic than pale blue NSW

Can anyone share why Callegari was excluded?

Browny - what a drive - and the commitment from Major... some amazing driving!

Callegari passed under safety car, I’m sure it wasn’t on purpose he’s a clean racer and good guy

That’s a shame - his car was quick, and deserved at least a top 5 finish.

Disqualification is pretty harsh, a +5 or +10 seconds is more common for a genuine "missed seeing one flag" incident in the heat of battle. :?

What a weekend!
As one of Browny's crew after Saturday we were wondering what else could go wrong. With the car being so reliable of late it was a tough day with many hours spent replacing components and lost track time for someone there for the first time. I was still refining the boost mapping for the new turbo that was actually working properly again just before the final - so happy I seemed to have got it right! :) We spent Saturday night thinking that a top 5 finish was still achievable because we know how well Browny can pass and once again the nut behind the wheel performed incredibly so 3rd place was really way beyond our wildest dreams (even if it was a bit of a bradbury moment :lol: )

Thank you to all of IPRAWA that made us feel incredibly welcome - Especially Ashly-Barny-Gary :badgrin: whichever you prefer was so great to meet you, the event was well organised, the track brilliant and thankfully the weather was perfect after it looked pretty dodgy on saturday. The dinner that you put on was absolutely awesome!! =D>
Congratulations to Ray and his crew - was awesome to share a shed with such a professional outfit and such nice guys - the win is a credit to your racecraft Ray as for once you wern't the fastest car there all weekend.
Thanks to all the fellow competitors who helped with parts and offered support during the tough Saturday.
Special shoutout to Leigh Forrest after his unfortunate incident with Wade in the final - so glad you and the car got through it relatively unscathed.
Congrats to David Walden for taking out U2l in a rotor. Bet no-one thought that could ever happen 5 years back :)
This has certainly got the motivation up to get the RX3 back out there ASAP!

See you at the bend next year!! :D

Cheers,
Clinton

No disrespect to the Honda guys but it was great to see a non Honda 1-2. Was a very good event.
