DECA

Brendan Shepparton (grew up there) is 2 hour 2.25 tops.
DECA is great fun. BIG skid pan and a neat circuit course.
I was speaking to Ian Anderson at Sandown coule of weeks ago about it.
I have Sunday Off and might take a drive up there if the weather holds out. No fun if its raining.

I prolly won't know if I'm going until Sun morning when I get out of bed and ring the relos for a weather report.

Laminge which pub you staying in.
I would recomend the old Victoria Hotel which has an Irish pub called Flanagans down stairs. Spent too much time in there drinking. Find it at the 4th set of traffic lights after the Lake on your left. (3rd set is ped lights)
Or if you want a nice motel $$$$ The Park Lake is right opp the lake as you drive into town.

If you see a grey wagon up there, stop and have a chat to me.

Grant.

Met up Brendan on Sunday- good to meet you mate - hope to make it a regular event!

Spent Saturday driving up slowly as I rolled my ankle on Friday and had a Great night at their Equiv of the Mens gallery, drank $300 bucks worth of grog and got kicked out late!!!!

Sunday was a great day with 30-40 HSV guys rockin up and some 10 XR Blokes

Not sure who won the day but it was absolutely sensational regardless, pitty most of you missed out!

Was good to meet you dude - I can confirm that Laminge's car goes pretty hard, a couple trips around the skidpan showed me that.

Was that rattling the engine mounts?
