Apparently, in this state of regulation, we have to travel in a uniform manner at precisely the speed limit

GET A TICKET

I'm looking at the itinerary - just can't swing it this year.

I'd have to fly back on Wednesday, and I just can't justify 48 hours of flight with 72 hours on the ground in a rental car with jetlag.

I think Oz deserves more than a cursory inspection.

And given the current cold snap, trust me when I say it isn't for lack of wanting to.

Raincheck?

Absolutely and better still with Ms Midget as well. Anyway, you've got some running-in work to do I believe wink

Never mention Ms. Midget in the same sentence with the word cold.

Any report on the salt this year?  They must be doing course prep this week at Gairdner, if it hasn't already started.

Safe travels!

Safe travels!
An advance party went out today (last thursday) to do a lake inspection.
Quote from Cookey "Best I've seen it since I started coming out here."

The lake is dry and in their estimation will only require one pass of the drag to be ready.
To the south they went down past the start line and the salt was still good and travelled the full length of the track to the north for 15 km all good, even the creek between the 2 and 3 mile was very good.

The only bit of bad news was that the west side of the lake was damp and we may not be able to use the new track layout. This will be determined by the advance party with the surveyor on the Wednesday before Speed Week so we will just have to wait and see. The problem is more at the end of the new track 2 where entrants would be turning out, it's a bit damp just there.

The ramp onto the lake is very good, and has healed well but you can see some marks from last year, so they reckon we will be heading out just south of that.

The other good news is that the Road from Iron Knob to the Mt. Ive road has been recently graded and is in good condition and the Mt. Ive Road has been recently graded as well. Now the really good news, the road to the drivers camp has been graded and is better than it has ever been and the road from the camp to the lake has been graded as well!!

Pics are gorgeous.  The tire picture says it all - the surface must be hard as a rock.

Be safe, have fun, and bring back stories!   cheers
