Default Aust Nationals results ???

So.........

Who set fastest lap times in each category?

Who won the show awards?

Any mechanical carnage? (I hope not...)

Any remodelled fiberglass? (I really hope not...)

Any drinking records set?

Anyone..... anyone.... anyone......

Bueller?

I'll give you all the nitty gritty tomorrow night from work.
Just got home after 8 hours on the road, and we are both stuffed!

If you want an unofficial trophy count: I think 2 went to QLD a few to NSW and an obsolete SH!T LOAD to Victoria

Casualties:
From Vic.
1 diff
1 T5 auto
1 Robnell front end (big ouch!! )
1 electrical fault
1 alternator bracket
1 over heating problem

Other than that. An awesome weekend!

Talking Just arrived home from the nats

To put you out of your misery Graig I'll start the nats reports with this post.
I can't rember all the results but the Vic's picked up a sh!t load of trophies.
Garret got peoples choice for the show and shine for his SPF plus a heap of other trophies.
Jason's missus Judy picked up a heap in the female catagory.
I'll leave the braging to Jason I think.
I blew an inlet manifold gasket on my second run in the go to woh.
I'll post a photo fo the mess I made in the pit garage when about two gallons of coolant went every where.
I spent the rest of the day fixing my engine so I could run in the super sprints on the next day.
Sunday I had an absolute ball in the super sprints. Didn't do any good as I can't drive fast for nuts and spun out on the same corner three times.
This will do for now more to come.
Bryan

edit Dam Jason types faster than me

At least you gave the photographers a fair opportunity to get a good shot then!

Congrats to Garrett and Judy. Garrett's car was always going to be a crowd favourite, and Jason's you-beaut plumbing job must have worked well !

Robnell big ouch?!? All the other problems look pretty minor, so it looks as though the weekend went well. How was the weather?

Hey Craig

A certain d^#@ head from Mt. Gambier left his car at home due to rain.

You guessed it we got a few drops on the way up and then burnt for the entire weekend.

Well it did rain for a few minutes late Sunday.

O well !!

Cheers

Bernie

That windsor looks as nice as a lady I knew once..Get the top off have a peek at the rockers....nice stuff....pity about the Blu$$y gasket though.

Bryan..that huge box on the firewall behind the engine is your heater??...If it is...sure is huge hey?

Good to see it was only an intake gasket tho mate...could have been worse.

Take care
