The cars are on their way south to Teratonga, for the 3rd and final races of the adventure next weekend.

Off topic, so apologies to the thread- I dismantled the loom on my RS1600 road car when restoring (and the Gp1 RS2000) and replaced the ballast wire with normal. When BL Mini first used the system (80s) both wires were present, so if you knew, you could just swap to non-ballasted....

Colin McKay should be qualifying in the top 10 on the gridColin McKay should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
As already mentioned, this weekend was totally frustrating with the car running fine in the paddock then misfiring badly as soon as each race started. Iain & I feverishly replaced everything, begging and borrowing parts until the whole ignition system and most of the fuel system had been replaced with no effect. We conceded defeat after half a lap of the last race and agreed to start afresh at Teretonga. So, not much time to take any pics as we were fully employed scratching heads! However this shot shows how a once orderly pit garage descends into organised chaos during the course of a weekend Wish I'd taken a 'before', pic!
