For the record, the family was planned, we just don't have a name.

Any good names anyone can think of for a girl who will grow up to be a Formula One world title holder (if daddy has his way).

Chevrolet von Pomborneit has a nice ring to it...

Bonnie, for short!

I was thinking Ute for the duality aspect - probably the coolest truck we'll never see in the States, and the tribe that Utah was named after, but I think Wayno is on the right track.

Of course, I don't have any kids, so what do I know?

 I like both Ute and Bonnevilla!

Sum introduced us to the Ute tribe of Utah and we were impressed.

We have ute racing in Oz, b/w the fords and Holdens. There's a bit more door paint traded than the other races and highly entertaining and pretty cheap to run I imagine. We also have a ute muster where last year over 7000 utes descend upon a designated area...

..hmmm... now to run it by the missuss...

Schwayne Gairdner? If we were in the motorcycle class maybe.

But Schwayne is clearly a boys name and we are having a girl.
A hyphenated boys name like Shane-Wayne already has our attention for the boys.

If we were having twins, one of each, then Arthur and Martha.

But we are having a girl and she needs a winning racing name.

Keke Rosberg, Stirling Moss, Juan Fangio and Jacki Stewart all had winning names. Mark Webber's lack of success surely comes from his unsuitable monica, it simply isn't as world championesque as Lewis Hamilton.

Its a pity that McLaren was a New Zealander, that would make an interesting first name... and the surname Brabham mumbles, just like the man.

While we are at it we mosewell change our surnames too. I do like "von Pomborneit" as our farm is in Pomborneit.

We can be the racing family von Pomborneit.

Bonnevilla von Pomborneit. mmm. Classy.

You could always go with a Latin name - Celeritas in Latin is speed, swift, quick - Celerita might work

Or have DEE somewhere in the name - as in De Hane -- from Henry De Hane Segrave, first person to set a land speed record over 200

Not as "contemporarly cool" as some of the other suggestions, however the first woman into the 200 MPH Club: Marcia Holley 1978 229.361

Another busy weekend , can't really remember much but we were at it no-stop. We changed some harness mounts, honed the clutch slave, I went right over the steering ....then when we tried to put the front tub on it wouldn't fit because the steering box had tilted slightly...well, there goes my wheel alignment. we added some more retainers for the fire bottles, tidied some wiring, fitted the canopy, took it off again, fitted it , took it off again,mucked around with the steering column washed and mounted the wheels, filled the water tank, got as much dust and swarf as we could out of the cab.

Then Pete brough the race trailer over....last night I slept through the night non-stop for the first time in six months, man I was tired.

still more to go......

I thought I was the only one still doing all nighters the week before ... Guess it is endemic to our small fraternity.
