Yeah, that certainly looks like a pretty fast track. That long squeeze is going to produce some interesting and exciting moments! Will drivers be issued "No overtaking" instructions on this section? Otherwise we could be seeing some very dented rear ends after the race!

Here's the track from another angle. There's another squeeze top right corner. We've learn't to tailgate the leading car through these and pass on the rest of the track. We also keep the marshals on their toes.

Sign up myself #10 and Lez (unknown number) for the last two spots if still available...both of us from BC, Canada I see you are keeping track of the country.

I'm unsure what to run but have three ideas.

I'll ask for fees next month when everyone is either still keen or too busy to build a car and want to pull out.

No Group5 cars, you've got your own proxy.

Rob, you and Lez are in, thanks for joining. The Slot.it Alfas are a good indication of what is quick on the Aussie tracks. If you can build something faster then you should be competitive. Just don't build something slower.

All 24 spots are now taken and we move to the Reserve list. If anyone pulls out the reservists will move up a spot.

Thanks everyone for filling up the grid.

What alternative universe do you live in?

Everyone knows Aussies have the most poisonous, deadliest and nastiest everything on the planet. Even our butterflies can kill you.

On a scale of 1 to 10 with Sharks being a 1, drop bears being a 5 and funnelweb spiders an 8 the Aussie proxy racers come in at 10.5

Be afraid, be very afraid.

Gees Paul - I wish you wouldn't sugar coat it like that....


BTW - lock in the #33 Brut Falcon as my entry, after it all it does have a degree of US / Canadian ancestry to the 1:1 version.....


And it looks mean.......


Cheers, Tony.
