Exactly how to kill the Goose that laid the Golden Egg...well done VHRR

I'm sure Geoff would have been there if the opportunity presented itself...

If you dont mind, please tell your S.I.M.C.A bloke he has several fans here!
Re the organisation its absolutely not my business but let me tell you that if I count well 800 A$ are 460 € for this price you only have a clubby day here! Ex VAT and insurances!!!
One hour at Bugatti track end of the season will be around 1200 €…

With all due respect Gerard...you have many, many more competitors trying to get onto each European track...Australie is a long, long way from anywhere and we have a relatively small population...therefore, it is all relative...we are not used to paying large amounts of Pesos to compete at a meeting...

Plus given the distance of cities from each other.....look at the costs incurred by the many who brought their rigs, be it car and trailer or huge transporter, the 8000+klms return from Western Australia to PI. Paris to Istanbul is much closer (Prob 1500 klms closer) than Perth to PI!

Thanks bludvl & EB for the info - I'd only checked the program & should have known better.

Now that you've reminded me 275GTB4 I think I have seen the Tilley Val on the tv, definitely not in person.

This year was year of the Volvo with a 144, 142 and 122 running. Also the Valiant mentioned earlier plus for Gerard the Citroen.

Thanks John875, love those pics specially the 122, my first love.
GTB and EB, you pointed right, all is relative. All I can say is that looking at a road map or even Googling your country its impossible to image those distances. The longer journey I made in EU by passion helped by some start money was Paris Enna Pergusa. What hassle… Sorry, was so young!

How long does it take teams to travel from Western Australia to Phillip Island ?

Google maps says 38 hours for 3550 km. That's non-stop too, so 4-5 days would be a more usual duration.

Allowing setting up, dismantling, and the four days of the meeting the Western Australia teams must be away for the best part of a fortnight, some undertaking.

Just home!! Had a great time, got lots of photos I am just starting to process, some of which may yet appear here.

Great to meet Dr Bob, and pleased to see the Bimmer went well!

Yes that's correct; for the benefit of readers the other cars were running in Group N historic touring cars which can be new builds to quasi-period regs, compared to Group C & A which must be original cars raced in period. Here's the 242GT - I was trying to get a scenic background in the shots from the end of the straight - not many race tracks can match this!

On a different note, this car is what I think was Mark Skaife's 1991 & 92 Gold Star winning SPA 003. Or do I have it wrong?

Hmm, I must have overstepped some limit. They are not track action, obviously. More to come.
