Grouse driving Mick, you make it look easy.

Jim, You just weren't trying in that first video...were you? How much did Ray pay you to stay behind him?
I do like the second slide in the second video, almost saved it, I like it! Also the car sounds much better with the new exhaust.

Nice work Jim you can here your car 4wheel spinning trying to get traction. ah that musco to fast for us
Now Ray, If you stayed t'ill the end you would of beaten all of us the way you were driving in the morning. Maybe you should have your Nonno nap around 11-11:30am until about 2pm which should then keep you awake t'ill 5pm, O.K?

Agreed - nice driving and it looks like a nicely set up car.  I especially like the g-meter on the left where the glovebox lid normally sits! ;)

Mick love that slide at the exit of the sweeper....that unfortunately ended up in the little spin.  If you could of held that, it would have been pretty spectacular.  When i first watched it i thought you were heading for the Scandanavian flick, but was bitterly disappointed  :)

On a side note, Andrew (my brother) had great pleasure watching you hand out the rear end.

BTW the car is sounding on song...nice work

Hope to catch you on the track some stage soon and keep the 3.0L 12v competition going

Hey Frank! Tell your brother sorry for nearly planting the nose of my car through his drivers side door coming into Watertower on one of those wet sessions! I ran out of talent!


Thats cool Mick, No sweat mate. We love it. Years ago with the M.S.C.A we used to run bumper to bumper the entire meeting, literally a meter apart, and we used to loose it at the same time in the same places trying to out drive one another. Places like turn 1 at P.I flat out, southern loop and Honda and we never rubbed paint. We ran two sprints with standard running gear and most meetings we were seperated by 100th of second, ahhh the good old days, until we attracted too much unwanted attention so my brother gave it away. I can't believe the first meeting he comes back and gets his ass chewed for passing a red flag that was clearly not there in his in car footage. F--- THAT!!!  Yeah we really loved being called liars.

Ray, Of course you can have your nap while driving, that's called 'autopilot', come on, you've done enough laps to go around with your eyes closed, surely, or is it your mums pasta is that good you just cant wait to get home for dinner, so you leave early?

  Quote from Davidm1750, "the Duck's guts"

  Hi David,

  When ever l hear that line l always think of this scene from Mad Max 1, when Max first lays eyes on the black interceptor, absolutely brilliant. see link, enjoy.

Heh heh, classic Paul, I know what you mean.  I can't where or from whom I first heard that term but it kind of stuck in the grey matter as being a term to explain just how impressed one is with something.  I reckon it suits Choder's top driving.

Ray is Mick's mum's pasta that good, sounds like we all should drop in for some :), nothing beats a decent pasta !! :)
