I don't think I will make the first one since I am doing a track day at Collie the following weekend and don't want to risk breaking something ahead of that. Hopefully I can get to the last three though.

I'll be there.. Finally!

All good Darren, we're holding a few to offer a better strike rate ;) - if it works out we'll try and hold another series early next year too

Haha - should be far less confusing than the last one you were at ;) - looking forward to seeing the YETI putting down some hard laps

How'd ya's go?

Well, it was pretty wet but we managed to make a day of it. Not a lot of chances in Perth to do corners at speed in the rain, made that 250hp Cleveland feel like 500hp:).

My Photobucket is dead now and haven't crossed over to another photo app but there are a few on the Apocalaps Facebook page.

We had Russ's 69 Camaro take top honours in the ProTouring Classic division, tough car that shows up at every event and absolutely hammers on it.

We did take a 20 minute break during one of the down pours due to the river that started to flow through the middle of the track. We did have some action during that period where all watched the smaller witches hats float away down the instant water hazard! another 10 minutes to reset the course and we were underway.

All in all, the crap weather didn't stop people coming to have a look and competitors from putting on a good show, it was a good day.

full throttle takeoff's, drifts and spins without loosing 1mm of rubber. maybe rain isn't so bad.

Some good lessons in throttle control. I didn't learn any by the look of my times. But at least I've acknowledged it for next time. :-)

Heaps of fun, well organised (as usual) and plenty of smiles all round. Well maybe except Sean after I smashed about 10 cones in 1 run. Some how I escaped a Jester nomination.

Pressure is on now.

Are you entering Darren?

Yes, put my entry in yesterday, now I just need to finish the Gremlin in time. Ordered a fuel cell for it today, just hope it gets here in time. I think everything else is in control.

69JavelinMan 07-11-2017 10:43 PM

Looks like this weekend's event has been rolled over to the 26th of November, gives me a little more breathing time to finish the car. Get your entries in lads and support Apocalaps.

69JavelinMan 27-11-2017 01:02 PM

Little bit of mostly Mopar video action from the weekend. Would have been good to see a few more cars there, but certainly can't complain about the lack of track time:

PS: Gremlin still didn't make it even with the extra 2 weeks so I had to join the strength and revert to modern Mopar mode.

My tyres didn't thank me for the experience:

Never seen a 300C been pushed so hard before Darren, good effort

And for those wondering what sort of performance went down, we ran the same autocross and speed-stop circuit for the whole series, and yesterday Jake's purple VJ Pro-Charged Charger smashed the Classic class record by 2 seconds, pretty much matched the ultimate "Yard Glass" record set previously by a "Tuned" A45 AMG - RESPECT!

His son actually took the series Classic title, with his VG Val Sedan, powered by a turbo 360

Luckily Tom was there waving the 1st Gen flag, on behalf of us guys on the sideline, in what was a Mopar dominated event

NEXT EVENT - Collie Motorplex April 28 - Track, Autocross & more ;)

69JavelinMan 27-11-2017 03:13 PM

Quick trip to Integrity Tyres this afternoon will see me sorted.

Really appreciate you guys running these events.

Booah 01-12-2017 08:54 AM

Great day out and thanks for bringing the 300C out for a few laps Darren.

Heres a link to some of the video from the day

69JavelinMan 01-12-2017 11:48 AM

That cameraman has amazing talents, hey?

But still not quite good enough to film himself flogging that 300C.

I've already locked Collie in, might have to dust off the Beemer for that.

All times are GMT +10. The time now is 02:13 PM.
