The next destination for our intrepid Formula Junior globe-trotters!

Looked up the ‘Levels’ at Timaru on goggle maps, and found a circuit map (or maps) on South Canterbury Car Club website..... https://southcanterburycarclub.org.n...tivities/#maps

I see that the track is driven anti-clockwise. Is that generally the case in the S. hemisphere?

We have just arrived at a camp site in Timaru . Not much to report . The camp site could be something out of the 60’s . There is free Wi Fi

I’ll post the camp site pic. As you say, could be in the UK a while back!

BUT Free WiFi? We don’t even get that at most Euro circuits!

31deg on Monday, 10 today! We've been hillwalking for a couple of days but no point today as the cloud is too low so now sitting in a very smart rv camp where we find ourselves next to another FJ, he had a more productive day than us having prepped his car in the trailer. Not sure what the posh neighbours think of that! Warming up for the weekend thank goodness.

Very different rv site to Iain's, at this one they trim the lawn borders with nail scissors and sweep the path behind as you walk in case any grit drops out of your shoes😁 TBH I feel a bit uncomfortable in this sort of place, we and the mhome are pretty filthy having been 2 days in the hills and on dirt roads a lot of the time. Still £20 for hot showers, elec hookup, tanks emptied & refilled not a bad deal.

The pictures I saw from Iain's car, at least the Danish blue one, show an action cam. Will you make some video? From the race I mean, not the swim!!

Morning Gerard . I am sure those who are close to me are having histericle laughter . I do not own a dash cam and would not have any idea how to work it or upload any film .Sorry to disappoint you . There are some good photos on the FJ face book page of me under car as she is hanging on the crane from up at Teratonga. Not allowed on the beech Mike . It’s shut at moment , they say due to bacteria .

Morning Iain! Yes of course I'm disappointed, thought it was an action cam! Not many solutions to find whether its my computer or my eyes… or the symptom of you driving "all balls out"! Just out of my curiosity how do they manage to close a beach over there? They put the sand upside down?
