No idea! This has been a fairly spontaneous thing for us... The track itself is sold out. Where else is good?


people camp at the park just near the track, and the uni rents out rooms and etc...

Well I'll have the stationwagon to sleep in so all I'd need is a parking space!

Cost anything to camp at the park near the track? I'm getting there Friday night.

Very disappointing weekend. Still good fun though. We drove through the night and got back at 6am this morning :D

I saw someone there! They yelled at me at the round about. Took me a while to register what was going on... I'm not used to replying to Mongoose :P :lol: So sorry I didn't reply! My mate and I were somewhat lost!

if it wasnt for the safetycar at the end, it would have been one of the most boring finishes, all the commodores were just playing follow the leader it seemed until finally bargwana decided to make a move. If this is how its going to be next year with mostly commodores, it's going to be some uninteresting racing.

As for the fords, they had some race winning cars but it was just one of those badluck days. Winterbottom had a race winning car and was in a good position, same as Van gisburgen and courtney but they had some bad luck too.

lowndes i believe lost the race for 888, i reckoned he got spooked by that clutch issue and took too long to figure out it was still a fast car he had lost 4/5 positions and that was it.

so if it wasnt for badluck it would have been a ford dominated race again like prev years.

I honestly reckon that Lowndes and 888 thru the race, why change drivers? lowndes knew what the car was doing etc.

Will Upload Pics later tonight...
