In the last couple of weeks my Stanza has undergone complete transformation from rally car to track car. Totally new suspension & R888's all round. It's all loaded on the trailer and ready for its first play on the black stuff at Sandown tommorow. (had to vac all the dust out of it from the couple of auto cross events it's done). Wish me luck (I'm in the same run group as hubby so divorce could be imminent :lol: and hope that the weather man stays kind. :D

Well I'm not divorced but not real happy either. I got 4 laps of practice in. It was super wet and slippery. My first timed lap out I spun at turn 2 and then could'nt hold it on the track down the back straight. Pulled into the pits and I had a flat left side rear. Could'nt find anything really obvious but there looks like a small cut around the diameter. (New R888 :| I'll get a better look tonight but I'm wondering if it's off the gaurd when the cars under load. Did'nt have a spare so the car spent the day on the trailer. Oh well there's always PI next weekend and I'll take 2 spares. Hope to see you guys out there sometime.

Somone come to the Tamper Day at Winton on the 27th of September.

I'll be taking the Datto out for its 1st outing and probably final before I head to Townsville.

My mate will also have his AU V8 Supercar there!

Anyone doing Phillip Island 14/11/09? I'm hoping to get there but my new house probably ready the weekend before so I might be pushing sh*t uphill to get organised and take a weekend off!

Nope I'm out until next year. Work is nuts and I also got engaged last Friday. So have wedding stuff to pay for. I'd say next year's racing will be at the bottom of the list of stuff to do.

Bit of a bummer, Brad. But on the upside, congrats!

Last event for the year will be the Alfa Romeo Club sprint Phillip Island 13th December 2009. I am waiting on entry form and supp regs to be emailed - will post here when I get them in case anyone else is interested in competing.

We're probably 70% likely to enter this event given it's the last chance for 2009 to better the 1:57.8 from the last event.

Considering doing something different car wise in 2010 so the Dazda may be for sale - watch this space.

PS congrats to the recently engaged lads. Glad to see that the Datto remains part of the arrangement and is not sold to fund wedding, houses etc.

Alfa club event apparently booked out 3 weeks ago with 20 on the waiting list. So that's 2009 over and done then!

Hope the new car is still going to be a datsun Doug

a 240z with an RB would be a great track car

Haven't forgot about this...
Unfortunately I'm in the process of getting the HR31 ready for sale. So the Datsun is well and truly the daily driver now.
Looking at either getting another datsun (say a small $hitter) or perhaps a Stagea.
Then I can go racing!
