Was a great day for the first time.Ended up with 3rd overall for the day in my class.

Need to do a bit of work on the suspension as its a bit floaty through the corners and change the diff gears.

I was doing good with not even a scratch until the final 6 lap heat when I got boxed in down the back straight,pics show damage that needs repairing for next month.






and an action shot.

Thanks for that Steve and no worries with the stickers,next meetings on the first sunday of september so if you have a few extras I'll get at the c4c.

The dents will knock out and the bruises should rub out.We need to beef up the suspension and add more bar work behind the bumpers.

some pics from sunday.








Before sundays racin we made a few changes to the car to make it go better.We changed the diff gears from 3.08 to 4.11:1 out of a nissan pintara and also locked it up (welded).Replaced springs/shocks with new ones and she handles and goes better just have to slow it down better and turn the corners.

Next round is October 4/5 which is a round of the state titles so Im doing that instead of Mt Gambier.

Well guys ran the last meeting for the year on sunday. Sad Sad
Had another great day with my first WIN in a race. cheers
Placed well in the other races all day and had enough points at the end to take out 2nd overall for the day. cheers
Also placed well (about 5th)in the sponsers feature race which is open to all racers,was 12 cars on the grid and held my own amung some vetrin racers,but most of all didnt let a falcon get passed me which was the best bit. bounce

To put the cherry on top,so to speak,managed to put up another trophie for best presented,which was a surprize.
Heres a few pics.
On the gas,flat to the boards.

The panel damage,up the arse of a injected 5litre BMW,

some rear damage also.

Mine and a mates rigs.


Come on next season,first race meet is February 22nd a twilight meeting 3pm to 8pm(sunset).
Need to do some more bar work around the front to stop to radiator support panel from folding up again and some new panels here and there oh and a new paint job.

Will keep ya's updated as things slowly move forward.cheers for now.Kev........... lol!

Well doesnt time fly by,ran junes meet last weekend.So I thought it was time for a update.Well on the off season car got a make over with several panels replaced and a quick respray.
Have been running pritty well this year so far with podium finishes every meet except last week.But did manage a 1st,two 3rds and piped at the line for a 4th place in the last wet race.
We dragged the car over to blackrock (near jamestown) for the first time and managed to take home 2nd overall for the day in my class.

So heres some updated pics.


an action pic

in the pits


We race in Pirie on the first sunday of each month from March-November so if anyones interested come up for a day.Or you can checkout the Dirt circuit website : www.DirtcircuitSA.com

Kev has sent me a rule and race car spec book Richard, you are welcome to peruse my copy.
True looks like huge fun, I was going to get into it myself with the HZ but have to wait for my shoulder to heal (up to 6 months) the Turo track is looking like it will be ready by next season.

We will have to start our own ACD racing team Shocked

The new season started last weekend.Not a very good start for me,only got one second place with me finishing last or second last for the other races.Not a drama though as it was great fun and I had some good battles with a worked 350 powered camaro.

Done a slight rebuild in the off season and repainted the car.Yous should like this one Steve.
Remember way back in 1993-Skaife/Richards touring car.(Wingfield racing).





A bit overzellas comming out of the corner.Spun around 180 degrees and got hit head on.


Turned around by the camaro. affraid


All in all had a ball thrashin the crap out of the VP once again.
