    Entry forms can be filled in on Saturday morning when you arrive. Bikes are scrutineered before racing. Bikes don't need to be registered, just safe to run. Riders can get racing licence at entry time (doesn't matter if your road licence is tempory 'expired').
    The old style open wheel car at 3.30 is one of my builds.

    The @Grasshopper and I went ...... bike section was a non event ... 2 street bikes and a Harley drag bike

    Cars etc were good though ..... Grasshopper took some pics so maybe he will post them

    A well run event ..... pity its not better supported ..... very few spectators

    Maybe a couple of FZRs screaming down the runway could be the go next year ....... :crazypilot:

    Unusual to not have more bikes, maybe the rain made then stay at home.
    The biggest meeting is the March meeting, so we have four months to get ourselves organised, hint, hint! :p

    Attended to drags today in my role as a ANDRA steward. Small bike numbers and some interesting cars in with the street cars.

    1966 Honda S600. Now fitted with 3lt Toyota 2JZ and massive turbo, modified powerglide auto, 9" diff, etc. He runs a 'soft' tune of ONLY 1,000hp at 26lbs of boost as there is not a lot of traction at Gunnedah.

    It sure does, and it is a nice change to all the V8 bangers with open pipes.
    It is a really well engineered car too, makes me smiles every time I see it. Runs low 8 sec and 168mph on the 1/4.
