Easy piece of old state highway just north of Cheviot .. Ratec 10 Nov. Plenty of clips on youtube..

Ideal introduction to sealed sprints. See you there.

You don't happen to have any onboard from your car(s) there do you?

Hi Neil,
good work! I don't have any gopro footage , but there is plenty on youtube. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nDoBfc5u5E[/youtube] You will like the road...

I will go up there even if its wet in the morning. The forecast is for it to clear up during the day.

Last year I did a practise run and one timed run before it started raining.

Yeah - I'm watching the weather too... I'll probably go if it's forecast to improve through the day.

Although since I lack a full cage and any sort of side intrusion protection, my aim for the day is to not go too fast :)

I may be sunk by the lack of an SFI suit. I have the SFi underwear, gloves and boots, plus helmet and HANS, but suit may not be good enough and not sure I can find one by Saturday... :-(

I'll call Palmside and Silvester in the morning - any other local suggestions?

Cheers - N
