Cradle Coast Rally was a short one day rally held on the last weekend in February 2012. Some classic stages including Savage River and Hellyer Gorge which is also a stage in Targa Tasmania. The run was not 100% smooth for us with fuel issues due to the heat and a dropped lifter for the biggest stage of the event, but we have FINALLY put some better rubber on the wheels and upgraded the brakes from the factory ones we had run at every event till now. Loved the new Yokohama Advan Neova tyres and many thanks to Yokohama and Legana Tyres and More for those. Again many thanks to Craig "Wheelie" Milich for being there when we needed him and creating a car for us that never under-steered, unlike the made up silver Merc with a huge Chev engine as shown here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YiCkoMNB-s&feature=g-all-u&context=G257800cFAAAAAAAAAAA This is a good example of a car that does not handle well. I have turned down driving lessons offered to me by this driver, this footage and comparative times I think make it clear why.

Cruising around at powercruise trying to find a few victims. The car is on
straight lpg, turbo charged, built and
tuned by Jason Ghiller from Tunnel Vision performance in Dandenong. Looks
stock on the outside aside from some big tyres. Poor Torana didn't know
what it was. :)
XE FALCON 406ci Cleveland
Anthony's XE falcon with a 406ci Cleveland, at heathcote raceway on the
29th of july 2012. Very poor track conditions resulted in no traction.
Targa Tas 2011 Mt Roland, pass a Ferrari
Best stage of the event for us. We are caught and passed by a TR7 V8 and
then hang on his arse to the finish, and we both pass a Ferrari. Not a bad
effort keeping up with the TR7 when we have road tyres, standard brakes,
and the fact that an XE Falcon isn't as aerodynamic as a TR7, let alone a
Ferrari! Gets a bit damp and greasy towards the end. I think the driver
enjoyed himself, Navigator did too! Thanks Craig and Neil in the TR7
