So last year, there is no practice time management / limitation ?

I didn't have my caliper up here by the computer, so I measured it with a ruler I guess they are 3.2

Looking at the pictures it also appears to me that you left the string off the front of the car to pull it around. It sure won't use Fuel / Tyres etc the way it is.

Hey Brett

Get your arse over here for the 2006 worlds.

That goes for all of you

Brett hopefully you will be over earlier than that to turn a few laps with me.

D, this is the second pilgrimage for you there plus you now know the car inside out ... no excuses, B main at least!

True.

On the other hand, there's always the possibility that we'd get better organised , get the country's RCAC (or whatever its called these days) properly recognised into IFMAR and host one in the near future ... before [i]I[/b] get too old.

Not to race of course, just to be young enough to be able to see the cars!

Yeah, actually I know that but I couldn't think of another "victim" apart from Onkel Chan and I already used him for another "assault".

Where is he these days? Too quiet getting ready for Bangkok or maybe he already there!

OK, do we know the dates and venue? I need to mark it in right away and start campaigning with the wifey. Tell her its near the Gold Coast and Bondi Beach or something.

Mark, I know ... Crashed is forever trying to get into those Dang-Dut clubs in KL. Little does he know that those are meant for 70 year olds where even I am not allowed in!
