Rastus, dont recall seeing a red pepper GT there, but there sure was a lot of tough cars. When my mate finally got his GT going we cut sick on the track!.......that was until the rocker fell apart again #$^#$^%#$%.

Anyway I had a great day, and now have the pressure on me to get my XY going by Next years run (have a slab riding on this:cool: )

will post some pics when i find the disk %%$^#^lost it!!

there was a corolla there too!!

funny hearing all the big V8s going past then the lil 4... didnt do too badly though.. neither did that comm!

but thats just me being fair :)

Maybe there is no competition @ his holden club? or he may have come to see what real cars go like.

It was great to catch up with you at Winton Botch. I see you and your friend had a bit of fun around the track in the XW. The car certainly appeared a bit tail happy! I guess you get that racing around on twelve slotters.
Apart from a few carby troubles I had a great day. I was able to take a few people out for a bit of a fang and they loved it.
Catch you all next time.

Botch,
A quick thank you from by brother for lending him the silastic for the thermostat housing on his XY. It was very much appreciated and got him home okay.

Ive got some pics of your car in action, but having trouble with the disk (wont read properly). hopefully will be fixed soon.


If i had know that there was late model stuff there too, i wouldve taken the EB!

Ghentoboy,
I was the guy driving the battery van, and yes that was my mates blue GT, that had the bonnet up for most of the day.

what sort of footage have you got?? video, photos, digi pix??

would be interested of vidoeo/pics of the blue gt in action

I took some pics of the eb xr8(nice side pipes btw) and the TE50 went and sounded great.!

also my other mate was there with his diamond white xy (which was parked next to vx and early xr ute) he spend most of the time sideways or in the dirt. MAD BASTARD. His brother had the XB v8 with the extremely faded blue paint, but the diff went by lunchtime.

Here is one of the pics that worked:
