Down to Collie for a VSCC weekend of Hill climb, Regularity and Race events!!!! Met up with Dani early Saturday morning (I didn’t want to take the old Lancer all the way down there… just in case) and arrived at the circuit at 10.13 after a Macca’s breakfast only 13 minutes late. Mind you originally we were told 11.30 then 11.00 and then 10.00 so we didn’t do too badly. The Hill Climb was still in progress but running ½ late so nothing was sorted at the track, but we got going eventually by 12.00!!! Saturday events were a bit hairy for me at FP3, having the action with 2 Classic racing cars stalled on the exit of the corner facing the wrong way in the middle of the track… could have been interesting, but all disasters were averted. Do I need to say that Classic racing car drivers are not necessarily my favourite people? After a wet Saturday night and arriving at the circuit to find large puddles at strategic points, on Sunday we had double the amount of races and regularity events to get through (38 in all) so the grid man was pushing them out as fast as possible with only the occasional annoying drivers breaking down on circuit and requiring a tow to hold up proceedings. The track dried out eventually and the weather managed to hold off until after things had finished with nearly all drivers rushing to get away. All in all a good weekend with some large, medium and small fields but it was still good to watch. Just for a change Jimmy T at FP5 had all the excitement at the last corner on Sunday, not that he would have really wanted it and generally things ran as smoothly as can be expected.
Thanks to Pete and also Gillie for the new photos… lets have more please. Pete and Tyler did the Hill Climb officiating on Saturday so I have no idea how the “Come & Try Day” went. Pete says they had great fun on Jack’s Hill with Tyler being starter and Pete Finisher… good on ’em.
