I’m excited for those attending, and more than a little envious! Just watched highlights of the WSBK meeting, and it reminded me of what a great circuit and location it is.

Hope you find your camera battery, john875. If you get time to post after the meeting some photos would be great!

GreenMachine should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Me and a few mates have booked a house for the three days. I am going to need about 100gb of cards, several batteries, and some pre-event weight training to lift the camera bag, if previous years are any guide ...

I won't look at the forecast until a couple of days beforehand, it's on the coast and too changeable, I'll go prepared for anything.

I missed last year's historics, and looking forward to a more relaxed visit this time, last year I managed a team for the PI 6hr relay and didn't have time to scratch myself :-(

Hoping to catch up with a long time mate who ran FF back in the TAA days, he's hoping to get there if he can escape grandparent duties for a day.

Ce n'est que mon avis bien sûr, mais avec de telles activités et ces températures là, puis-je me permettre de recommander un peu plus qu'une douche tous les quatre jours… Sinon ça va puer!

Showers at the circuit. Failing that the sea is very close!

E.B would be great to arrange a short video of the first Maserati song. Have fun and be safe all.

Ian Tate is a fabulous and very helpful guy, and he isnt too shabby with engines either.... he gave my Group Nc Cortina engine a freshen up for me back in the day and it never missed a beat, despite my attempts to ring its neck!

He also built many of the Holden teams engines in the ATCC from the late seventies, and that includes a few Bathurst winners.

@ Iain glad you got there ok and I knew you would love the track. Not much to not like about the place.

All the best Iain, and don't get too distracted by the view......I remember doing that gazing at Snowdon whilst racing at Anglesey - and finding the corkscrew came up a bit quick!

Don't forget to make sure they have rounded up the 'Roos before you go out on track.


You may find a few in a fenced area near the circuit. Obviously the pen is outside the active area ... or it was when I saw it a few years ago.

This place is amazing . There is serious race cars here . We are getting a lot of attention . Had a crowd waiting for me to fire up the car . Hit start button and nothing . Errr forgot to connect up battery . Red face . Just going out now for a play but we might have fuel supply problems . Sure is a long straight .

Not sure where to start . Had the most brilliant day . So many people come by for a chat .Lots and lots of interest in the car . Owner let me loose this afternoon . Did around 8 laps . Need to do 80 to get on the pace and learn properly . I’ve been invited to drive AC Cobra but have had to declinie as it is in same race as our car . Will come back next year with F Ford and have some fun. BT W and this is not exaggerating there are geese on the track and I mean right on the apex . They don’t move . Your coming by inches away and they just carry on chewing the grass . Finished up prepping the car around 7 pm and ran back to hotel around 4 miles away . Lovely evening then got made even better when I saw several kangaroos . We ended up having a race . Just an amassing day .

Glad you are enjoying the place Iain. See you tomorrow (Friday). Just throwing some clothes and toothbrush in a bag now. And the bike I mentioned for you to use if you want.

Re the geese, yes they are a hazard. One took out a motorbike on the main straight last year at MotoGP!. onboard Video in this news link
