Pretty much the case, although I was nowhere near at the time.
On the bright side though, the organ donation was a success and there's an eg civic with the running gear and suspension ready to chuck gravel in waitomo on October 1.
I'll be in the silly seat for that one. Should be fun.

Gutted to see the Invertegra, I guess that's the good ol' motorsport life cycle: Race, Break, Fix, Repeat

Well, furthering my career as a ring in race driver, I'm having a play in this tomorrow in Round 1 of the 2K Cup (North Island) at Hampton Downs. My good mate Stu has overcommitted himself, paid his entry and can't race so has offered me the seat. Never driven the car before, curious to see how it goes!

Does it irritate anyone else that silly car modifications are called "tuning"?

Yes. I can't stand this stupid fucking "stance" thing.

But anyway...I got sent to Bathurst this year by the wife as a surprise. Never been before, and it was simply awesome.
TV and photos just don't accurately portray the elevation of that track. And then there's the bogans up by McPhillamy Park...
I went with a fellow fire rescue marshal who was also marshalling there, so got to stay in the marhsal's camp in a camper about 30m from mountain straight.

Took some photos, if you fancy a gander: http://imgur.com/a/6szKk

I want to go back for the 12 hour next!
