Yep thanks for posting pic Mike . Containers arrived mid morning and we unloaded everything in 30 degrees plus heat , spent few hours changing gears , prepping and nut and bolt check . Should have couple of test sessions tomorrow . The bikes were on track this afternoon . You come of a banked hairpin and then wind up full throttle hugging pit wall . Fast and scary .

Had couple of test sessions today . Very windy here and the track is more bumpy than ever .To be honest it’s a bit scary at first . Get a grip Rowley . After few laps i got used to the bumps and the leaves and the sand and the strong wind .Anothef couple of test sessions tomorrow then qualy at 4.30. Off for fish and chip supper now with the locals .

Qualy was Friday evening and car went well . Bit of a shock as I ended up P6 which was ok but I was 5 seconds off the first two FJ cars so bit down in the dumps Friday evening . Woke up 5.30 with a Ureeka moment. I was using wrong gear for last two corners that lead on to long back straight . Off to the track as first race was at 10.00. Changed gears and I then had two excellent races with local FFord driver beating him twice so finished 5 th and 3 rd in class but more important only 2 seconds off the Richardson powered FJ cars at front . We then had lovely prize giving in the evening where everyone goes to and just chills and have a good old natter about the days racing . It’s been a brilliant tour and as I’ve said before one I can only recommend you do . Back home later with big bump .

Jeez, I thought it was only the Royal Family that flew on different flights in case of emergency.

Glad you're back safely mate, that's yet another stock of tales in the memory banks I'm sure.
