EP Off Road scene is pretty healthy here right now.

If you are ever back this way, let me know if you need a proper job night out. I live in Potts Point next to Kings Cross, so I can easily navigate an epic pub crawl around the great watering holes of inner Sydney.

it is insane that Danny Magee had FTD in 2wd Qualifying and didn't make the A Final! That system, can't be the best?
good stuff, i raced there last november before the track was re-done, got any photos of the new layout?

So you (as a club) raced for 20 years on the same 89 Worlds track. Have you seen much improvement over the years on the lap times and numbers of laps?

I'd like to know if racing with modern tyres and 3 or 4 times more HP has made average good drivers faster than the very best of 1989.

Good question. I will find out.

20 years is a long time to keep a layout. I think a jump had been added at some point.

I will look for some video links from youtube and get back to you. The track no longer has that old school charm.

I will take a few snaps this weekend too.
