T3's versus BA's at WSID

OK all you BA owners out there, its time to put up or shut up!

Here's the challenge. WSID this Good Friday day/night meet.

Don't sit at home eating smoked cod for Easter, come down to WSID and have a Four & Twenty in between runs against some T3's

sbutler (Venom Red) and I (Meteorite Grey) will make the pilgramage down to the creek and show you BA guys just what a good thing thing the T Series still is and after that we'll flog some Crappodores.

All other T Series and AU owners prepared to fly the flag welcome.

Go to www.wsid.com.au for details. $45 for entrants & $15 for pit crew/spectators

Be there or b square. Lets make this a Ford event with a good showing.


The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"

FPVGT,
Since you don't show your location (and that's your perogative) and you responded to the post I'll assume you are from NSW. If legally drag racing your BA is not your thing, that's OK. Maybe you could come along and add to the atmosphere and enjoy the social side of meeting some like minded owners.

Your southern cousins obviously don't agree with you as evidenced by the threads on this forum where it can be seen that at least some BA owners get out to Heathcote and Calder to enjoy their cars even if some of them get beat by a dead stock T3 auto from their part of the world.

BA owners already know T Series beat BA's on the track (and I'm not just talking about GT Production cars) so here is a challenge where you have half a chance because you don't have to stop the thing quickly or go round corners to win. Everyone acknowledges the BA has heaps of grunt and pulls like a train in a straight line so lets get a bit of social interaction happening in a motorsport atmosphere.

Be seeing ya (in the rear vision mirror)

Re: T3's versus BA's at WSID

The guys have been running at Calder every friday night for quite a few fridays now...

and here you are offering a challenge, of all days.... on a GOOD FRIDAY long weekend?

I'm sure the boys will be down at Calder again the Friday after...why not just meet em there? I'm hoping to go down for my first run in a couple of Fridays... :o)

People say money can't buy you happiness.... I say they just don't know where to shop.

fullthrottle,
You must be joking! Where are you from, Albury? It's far enough from Central Coast to EC without going to Calder.

Why go all that way to a clapped out facility (read the threads - timing boards don't work - no ink in the printer so can't read your slip) when we have a new world class facility in Sydney!!!!!!!!

Easter Friday might not suit some, granted. But night meets don't suit others either when you have to be there by late arvo to get a run.

Shaynet i'm from VIC mate and do use the car for a fair bit of track work.I usually go out to Calder for a bit of a work out.You must have a lot of mirrors on the front of the T3.Personally i'm not even interested in 13 sec passess 10's and 11's then there would be something to talk about.Both cars are great and yes the T3 is a very quick car on and of the track.I hope you guys have a good day out there and keep us posted on the results.
