I spotted it hanging down through turn one Pete - unless you did it on the previous lap at 10 ?

I was up on the roof with Bretto and actually looked to see if Mick was close by but couldn't see him. Hope the damage isn't too bad mate...

So was this "close enough" to change the out dated rules for IP cars or will the class wait till somebody is burnt. :roll:

They had the meatball out for Footie for at least two laps before the BBQ.

Fix her up footie, looking forward to lots more dicing in the future.

Great weekends racing with some excellent side by side action. Congrats to Ryan for the U2l win. It was great fun battling with you all weekend.

Cheers

Good idea mate.

Great racing IP and it was also great to see how well presented almost all of the cars were on the track too. Fantastic to see a V8 LM, T FWD EM, T RWD EM and Rotary from four different states all having the crowd entertained at the front, throughout the weekend. Great stuff through out the field too. I reckon everyone who contributed should be very proud of their efforts. Well done all. :-) =D> =D>

Why be the tosser that brings it up?


Anyway Hislop and Jagger seem to have nabbed records.

It seems on Natsoft there were lots of penalties handed out over the weekend
Contrary to popular opinion, I do have mechanical sympathy, I always feel sorry for the cars I drive.

Yes, there should be little doubt if anyone read the post trail consecutively.
It is an inappropriate post in an inappropriate place, and since you are unidentified we can only speculate it was by an inappropriate person
Since there is now a thread in the appropriate section I will move there.

24341 was the official crowd figure. Crowds tend to looks sparse at EC as a lot of people spread out across a large area. There was a lot up the top end of the track, and a lot around the hill on Turn 2, and also some out the Back around Turns 5/6.

Some pics from the weekend here on the Speed Shots Photography Facebook Page

I'll be sorting out images and host an online gallery in the next day or so. Great to see such good hard racing over the weekend too guys :D
