    If you have not entered the server and driven a few laps with fellow drivers before we go to qualifying you are too late for that session.

    Please think of your fellow drivers. Get out on track with them, watch how they drive, you can't race with guys you have not seen drive. We ALL brake a little differently and drive the corners differently, get used to how they drive and then we can all race more safely.

    If you drop out of the server during qualifying you can return.

    This is being held in our Club, using Club Rules, and should be driven in that spirit.

    In for R2 please..
  17. Good fun racing the British Classics around an excellent Aussie track. Cars were well matched and the track has a nice fast flow to it.
    I managed to get to mix it with most drivers throughout both races, thanks guys. I don't get to join often these days, but it was good to join you all this morning.

    Best wishes to all for a Happy and Safe Christmas, hopefully see you all in the New Year. :)

    EDIT: Special thanks to Rupe and Steve for their tireless organisation of events throughout the year. :thumbsup:

    A good way to spend some time after plowing and shoveling snow earlier in the day in the good, clean, cool, Nova Scotian air. Number two son and family had to change plans and are going to arrive tomorrow instead of to day which left an opening for some racing and I jumped at it. I had two enjoyable events with people to chase and people trying to catch me so there was no room to let the mind wander...but it did anyway ... like my mind has a mind of it's own. You never quite know what you are going to come across when racing ... like Roland having a barbeque or smoking some bacon????
    Good racing to Phil and Hans. Hoping all have an enjoyable holiday. Too bad Denis with connection problems. Thanks to Steve for the event and setup for the Escort.

    Tip of the Day:

    The best way to find spelling, grammar errors in your post is to carefully look for mistakes after writing your report ... find none .... then post the report. Your errors will immediately appear upon proof reading after posting. Tried and true method I have used for years and never let's me down.

    Oooops! You missed this one Jack :rolleyes: "...... tomorrow instead of to day which left ......."

    Yeah, last night was great fun and I was glad that @Warren Dawes and @Jack Smith were able to join in the fun too. Apart from a poor start it was fairly uneventful first race. Rupe was setting a fabulous pace and it was all I could do to keep him in sight so 2nd was the best I could manage.

    Race 2 was MUCH more exciting with @Roland Warmenhoven & @Yves Larose clambering all over the rear of my car for most of the race. The volume of the Escorts' engine was drowning out my little Jag so I had a little difficulty gauging my entrance in a couple of corners which caused me to get a little out of shape. :( Many apologies again if I caused anyone any problems. :redface: Eventually both Yves and Roland found their way past but Roland went a little wide on the exit of the last bend a spun out across the track after getting his wheels on the grass. :( So another win for Rupe and a 2nd place finish for Yves demoted me to third place but it was all good fun.:thumbsup:

    Many thanks to everyone who attended and see you next time.:thumbsup:

    Had a good fun race evening this time al do the Jag was not forgiving in R1 can do a good lap but the next lap I fumble up in Quali but in the race to, start from p8 (last what's new) had a good start but T1 brought me back to p8 again :( so have to start over having some little fights with Andrew an fin p7..

    R2 was more fun my usual bad Q P9,:( had a good start an clime up to P7 in the first couple of laps, Jack was behind me 3-5 sec constant so we did the same laptimes an no room for errors on my side,one moment a big smoking car in front had to slow down (much smook lol) Roland having some car damage so P6, an Jack was closing fast in the last laps but I hold it to the finish line !!:cool:

    Thanks Rupe an Steven,:thumbsup:
