Cradle Coast Rally 2012. V8 XE Ford Falcon. Hellyer Gorge 1
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.
Ford XY GT 351
Some nice race footage from Eastern Creek, of one of the best GT's going around.
Quickest time to date 10.7 making it the fastest manual XY GT in Australia.
Hope you enjoy :)

Trying to catch the XY GT
The XY pulled out to avoid a slower car and I had to lift off the throttle, he got away from me but I got most of it back under brakes.
Ford Fairmont V 4WD
Glenn pits a 4WD against an old school sedan to see how they both fare at Melbourne's 4x4 training and proving ground. Suffice to say the Ford Fairmont had a few struggles
