And yet some more pictures added to the build page...


15 October 2009

I have added some more pictures to the build page...

Unfortunately my bad run of "Not Making Opening Night" will continue again this year as I will now be oversea's on Huntly's new Opening Night, 31 October 2009, AND the car will be ready for this weekend... aaaarrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh!


16 October 2009

Some more pictures added to the build page...

22 November 2009

As Saloons are racing next weekend at Huntly I have spent this weekend putting the finishing touches to the car.  Check out the build page for some more photos.


29 November 2009

Well, what can I say?  The car is finally completely finished and Huntly's meeting was rained out last night.  Considered going to Kihikihi today, but I have decided that I want to debut my new car at my home track.  Oh, and I have yet to be greensheeted...


14 December 2009

All set to go at Huntly this weekend... PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON'T RAIN!!!!!


20 December 2009

Would you believe it???  Got to the track and went for my first drive in the new car, up and down the pits, only to be told my right rear wheel was wobbling all over the place.  A change of wheel did not fix the problem so a quick check of the axle/hub revealed a slight bend.  No racing for me tonight.  Aaaarrrggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!

Oh well, positives are that my licence has now been activated by the Steward and the car has been greensheeted.

I will order a new axle on Monday and hope it will arrive before Christmas.  If all good, we will be racing on the 31st at Huntly.


23 January 2010

Well, a month later and I am finally looking forward to heading to the track again with my new car.  Sadly, saloons are stood down, but I will help out by doing some wheelpacking and maybe I will get a few hot laps as the night progresses and if time allows.


24 January 2010

For the love of Mike, just when am i going to get to go racing?  Did about 15 laps of wheelpacking and the car went off song, just didn't sound right at all.  Got back to the pits and found I had a buggered rocker, completely busted to bits.  Given that you just cannot predict that stuff, and that I was only going wheelpacking, I didn't take any spares.  Aaaaaarrrrgggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Big thank you to the production Saloon Drivers who were happy to let me race with them, until shit happened.

next meeting 13 February, at Huntly.


15 February 2010

Well, what can I say... I finally made it on to the track on Saturday night and boy o boy did I have a blast.  The new car is 150% better than the old car.  The changes made have all worked to provide a much easier drive and with a 4th, a 2nd and a DNF (mistake on my behalf at the start) I had the best night ever at Huntly Placemakers Speedway.  Check out the results page for stats and I will type up my first newsletter in 2 years later this week.

Crikey, 7 months between updates, means a huge apology.

I have now got some photos from last season to add to my photo album, courtesy of Yaz from NZ Stockcar Crazy.

Have archived all the old info and will get stuck in with the website when racing starts again shortly.
