Delayed 2020 THC in Feb. The 105 claimed Second place in Classic.
 Car was solid throughout.

Magnificent!
Fantastic roads around Mt Buller, King Valley and Mansfield.
Car looked well balanced in the wet - what tyres?
Exhaust manifold behaved itself?

Great camera work.
Well done!

Thanks. Colin did the driving. Car handling was good, a little understeer. Fantastic grip in the wet on the Dunlop D03 S3(softs). They are also good in the dry ....up to a certain point on a 50km stage!
All that camber and caster with biggish tyres and small steering wheel certainly created a workout for Colin! No wonder he changed his 105 to rack and pinion.
