On the weekend after next, anyone going ?

I'll be at Kirra/ Tweed Heads from Monday 31/8 on, would love to meet up with some of you Qld guys. Need to be shown the Model shops.

Looking forward to Speed, gotta go to a Wedding on Sat. but will be there Sunday, trying to get Sir Jacks autograph.

I thought that this event was finished with? Obviously not if it is on again. I went a couple of years ago when I was in Brisbane for work and loved every minute of it. Bit of a shame it is on the same weekend as MCM :(

Yeah it was MOTIV8 but im guessing someone from the world rally mob had a chat with the speed on tweed organisers and managed to talk them out of retirement so its back on now should be a great weekend wish i could make it been meaning to go for the last couple of years but it just doesnt work out when its on:(

Mate of mine from the Tamworth carclub is running his Torana sports sedan, I'll have to say hello.

Getting out may be a problem. Doesn't the WRC finish midday Sunday?

True but I would imagine the internationals would go ex Brissy, but Laz would have to check.

Nice Elfin mallala ... As for Ray Lintotts toy - I thought he was more of a Porsche kinda guy ! ... That mustang has been around for quite a while - nice car although I wish he would ditch the wheels and put some proper Torq Thrusts on it !!

There was an Elanore & a Red Mustang of around the same vintage, but both were driven very poorly. I understand not wanting to bend them but they would dawdle around the corners offline, brake in the wrong places then bag them up. ??
