Just got back from a great weekend at Phillip Island (didn't enjoy the 13hr 25min return trip home though). My biggest issue for the weekend was my bottom radiator hose blew off while on the navigation cruise lucky I had some helping hands to get it back together Thanks Peeps and the only other issue is that every where I went someone must have dropped something on the roads cause my car wouldn't stop spinning the tyres.

Same, brad. Got back last night after about 12 hrs of driving. Would do it again in a heart beat.. Well organised event. Lets see how it progresses into NDN15 in warwick !! Hope they bring on the drags again ..!

Have to do more road trips away with the club.. Brings out the best in people... BTW , Racing around PI was the best fun ive had in old 'gordo' , in a long time.. Came back with a leaking flange gasket, and a i can never tire of the smell of burnt AVGAS...

Hi all, What a great 5 days away, I towed the datto down, took 12 hours, with the family ( one hour stuck in traffic ) The motel was great to us ( The seahorse Motel ) recommend it to all,

The datto didn't miss a heartbeat on the track, Best personal time of 1.54.7 , 2nd fastest Datsun 1600 on the day, Haden Clarke got 1.54.5,

That track is great,

Sundays car show was fantastic as well, But went to a garage sale and found this, what a bargain, ( $60 I paid for it ),

Mark has some in car footage of my car from the dash, so hopefully he will put up soon,

I took 2 days to get home, Came back up the east coast and stayed at Bermagui,
