Happy New Year to everybody.

Sorry about the lack of updates, but as you will know, the Speedway season has arrived and we have had a very busy time at Huntly Placemakers Speedway.

Many thanks to Peter Kennedy of Metal Image who has kindly offered his assistance in getting the car finished.

Check out the upgrades page to see where I am at with the car.

Have archived the last year in What's Up Archives.
