2010 MSCA SIX HOUR (Mallala, South Australia)
May 23rd, 2010 - rough edit of my 15 laps in the MSCA Six Hour event...
right up until my front right brake line collapsed causing my front wheel
to lock (especially not ideal on a greasy track - it was raining lightly on
a previously dry track... the rain got MUCH worse as the day progressed).
I actually thought I had a deflating tyre but when I found the collapsed
brake line my day was done so I spent the rest of my time in the timing
tower helping the team!
Tesla Roadster on the Adelaide Clipsal500 Racetrack
During the 2010 Clipsal 500 V8 race event in Adelaide (March 11-12-13-14),
my car was part of a sports car exhibition called 'Murray Walkers' Extreme
Machines'. As part of the display, we all got to take our cars out for 3
fast laps of the track each day.
We took a video of the run on Sunday 14th, courtesy of @Punkley - who
supplied the camera...
... and he also supplied the wild hair (that neither of us realised was a
factor until we played it back later!)
Somewhere, through the hair haze, you can see how nifty it is to get to
drive a great car, fast, on a great track.
What a hoot!
Subaru WRX STi Mallala Track Day
Both the Black 2002 STi and the blue 2006 WRX have had extensive work done
on them, thank's to Sean and the boys at S&J.
It was first track day for 2011 and both cars found it hard to get in good
laps due to slower traffic resulting in poor lap times, however it was good
to get out and get suspension set up for the track.
Looking forward to the first time attack day this year on the 6th of March.
