    Bummer.
    I'd certainly love to be part of this one but, unfortunately, I am going away for about 2 weeks to visit my daughter in outback Australia. We plan to leave on the 8th May, so I'll be away for this.
    You guys should have fun though, these are really good tracks and should suit the BMW.

    This is also why I'll miss the first two rounds of the League too.

    This looks brilliant but I am going to have to miss out. Off to Cairns for a weekend of luxury (son and I are going to see Monsters V Aliens) and shopping (Wife)...

    Right - I'll re-arrange, let's try and get all the Aussies to attend this one, so I'll move it further down the schedule :good:
     
  9. Haha! Do you REALLY wanna hear at least 4 aussies on TS? :laugh2:

    We'll make the Aus night the Month Finale so we can jig around the format a bit better. :good:

    This is a terrific gesture Stu, thanks mate cause I'd love to be part of it.
    I have checked with my travel agent (er wife) and we will definitely be back by the last Saturday of the month. I should be back early that week.

    Look, you lot make the effort to wake up at ungodly hours to drive with us, it's the least I can do (and I've checked my charts, it is the very least that I can do :wink2: ).

    We might be a small subset of the RD community as a whole, but the GTL family looks after it's own. I am very proud to run this section as, even with a couple of items that have annoyed me, I've never, not once since I've taken over, had a complaint from any of the GTL drivers about any other.

    The driving is exemplary, and long may it remain so. :good:

    Also Glen, found a potential issue with Adelaide after prolonged testing, so moving this out to the end of the month gives time for a fix to be produced - if not, I'll lob in Warwick or Amaroo or something.

    We'll definitely stay in the Antipodes :good:
     
  15. Mc Excellent. Give's me a chance to dial the understeer outta these Beemers! I have so much trouble driving them!

    It'll be great to have a few Aussies on track, cos as Watkins Glen showed, I won't be representin' Aussie pride anytime soon :rotfl:

    Thanks Stu. Adelaide is a great track too, BTW! Some big changes in corner speeds, big braking areas... and what's that(?), possibly some sideways action! :party2::party2:

    Glenn - I had the same issues as you @ Adelaide, occasional sporadic crashes, so I've binned Adelaide for now, stuck Amaroo in there to be a sprint followed by a Melbourne feature lengther inc. pit stop.
     
  17. Woo hoo!!
    Amaroo kicks ass! Lovely track. First lap up the hill (Bitupave) will be an experience :party2:
     
  18. Yep, sign me on the list, you guys look like a fun group to race with:dance2:

    The others are Bert, I'm not. I'm a grumpy old git. :D
     
  20. Always whinge whinge whinge, "don't drive the track backwards" he says, "don't crash into other people". Just no fun tbh
