Great pics! Does anyone know why he ended up in that situation? Tyre issue? Lack of brakes?

On TV it looked like he had a deflated rear on the passenger side
In those pic's above the rim looks a little damaged, as well, but that is easy to say when you are 500 km away and don't really know!
Contrary to popular opinion, I do have mechanical sympathy, I always feel sorry for the cars I drive.

Just wanted to re-iterate the thanks to Garry M, Garry C and the Streets. I got badly held up Thursday, yet Peter Street kindly took my documents at 2100hrs+. It was amazingly good as a competitor to have the admin come to us, such that I barely knew that my car had been scrutineered in my pit area. Again, Licences were later returned to us in the pits. Great service from Gordon and his team at the Yokohama truck. And Garry, you are MOST welcome to organize Donut King as a sponsor any time you like. The 2 young ladies certainly brightened up the garages!

Also thanks to the flaggies. Glenn Potter (car #66) and I did flags for the 12 hour, and found it a lot harder than racing, which we couldn't do without the flaggies etc.

I had a great time on and off track, can't wait to do it again next year.

Congrats to all. Happy to see there wasn't the carnage we saw in the HQ races. I'm in the midst of sorting pics for the 12 Hour organisers now, and then will hit the IPRA shots and will post the gallery. Hugely impressed with some of the "giant killing" performances from guys like Andrew Cherni and Scott Hunter, John Woodberry and of course Leigh Forrest's mighty Celica. Not to mention Ray's Falcon of Doom - what a weapon. Flames from the back of the RX8 were great to see too 8)

Bit harsh Dec, That was the 3 MMAL workers, Chadwick, Knight and Heathershaw. The last one went back to FFord after that mishap.

Cheers.
