If people want to, it would helpful if people signed of their post with a name or initials, so people know who we are.
Look forward to racing with you tomorrow

Thanks for the advice I will go out and get one in the morning, the superglue can't last too long.

Oh and dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble.

I saw Tex recently at the Metro, I like the way a guy brought him 3 white towels and a silver bucket containing a bottle of wine with a single wine glass. He polished that off by song 7 then hit the beer. Saw Tim Rogers a few months later at the same venue. Nice lace gloves

Nice!

Would be good to replace the yellow marshaling vests with clowns wig and nose

Alternatively have a rodeo clown causing more trouble out during the SC races.

It should be announced within the next few days. From what I can tell the guys at Illawara are seeing if they actually can get the track ready, which would be great. Lots of jumps. There seems to be a heap of issues with Castle Hill, TJ the on-road series guy has qualms about having a a race at castle hill before the State titles which are 6 weeks after.

You may know this already.

You are right, if you ease in to the first few corners you can take at least 5 places as people are usually tangled up. I just didn't expect people to be doing donut tangos at the end of the straight It's all good practice, and experience.
