Will be there with bells on gentlemen. Our club has four cars entered:- 2 XY Fairmont GS's, an XA Fairmont Hardtop and my XB Falcon GT. We are heading off out front of Ford Geelong at 6:00 am, meeting a couple of peole at Ford Head Office and then making the trip up the Hume. Car is now ready, I hope I am!
I'd like to know who's idea it was to have the Winton run on the day of the AFL grand final!!
Alas I wont be able to make it.
I went last year to see Chris, the fella who bought my Red Pepper XA GT Four door fling it around the track.Something I wished I did when I had it.
I think he was going today , so let me know if ya seen it and how it went.
PS: i'm half cut at the moment after watching the GF on Tele.
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 #$^#$^%#$%.
Anyway I had a great day, and now have the pressure on me to get my XY going by Next years run (have a slab riding on this )
will post some pics when i find the disk %%$^#^lost it!!
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.
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.
I took video and my brother took photos.. i can capture a bit from the video... not TOO bad quality.. i dont know what i took. i think i got at least some of most of the cars, but prolly not the BEST quality... most was of the te and xr etc, i didnt think of taking pics to post on here.. but ill see what i can find (ill go thru and re cap some if u like)
PS this is one of my FAV pics, just bfore we went off in the XR
HEHE! Thought so!
Ive got a bit of that car! Was pretty impressed. Ill see if i can cap a clip of where he goes around a corner like in that pic, and dazza (edxr8) tries to go a LITTLE further but ends up on the grass. Funny stuff!
