    They both have good points, but you are right. Plus it's like a full hour closer (or more) to me than Barb

    Paul Stokell did this one, and he charged $135. You do 4-5 10min runs over 4hrs. Mostly in between runs you try and get into another car. I had 3 passengers for 1 run, bloody hilarious. The next one is planned for June, no date locked in yet, but will let you know.

    Oh okay, that makes sense. Was a bit confused by the format, but yea was a good drive in the 2nd group race. Were they split into 2 groups because the Queensland Prod Cars weren't there?

    Awesome weekends racing for my first ever real car event, had a bad run in my first race after Qualifying 13th out of 33 cars, avoiding a car that I thought was making a last minute move in the braking zone, causing me to slide sideways and backwards into the grass which in end made my rear camber stand right up giving massive tire rub, ending my race.

    Race 2 i was delegated to the front row of group 2 where I had an awesome battle the whole race with Holly Espray Racing, just holding her off to win the group 2 race. to gain entry back into the main race.

    Sunday morning i would start 22nd, made a heap of passing maneuvers to find myself in 15th with Holly yet again pushing me to my new found limits, was catching the Battle group in front of us until there was a massive accident in the lead pack causing the race to be declared 3 laps short from the end.

    The final race of the weekend, the 2 groups would be combined and i would start from 13th place, after all the first lap jostling for position had finished i found myself still in 13th where i spent 70% of the race looking for a place to pass the #8 and #35 cars, on lap 10 i got past and set my sights on catching the next group...

    But with one lap left to run the race was yet again cut short due to another crash up front, I crossed the line in 9th place but due to the race being declared the results went back one lap and I finished 11th.

    all in all it was a great first event in the RACEONOZ Excel, "technically" achieved my end goal of a top 10 - top 15 finish and came home with a straight car with only minor scuff marks, thanks to all the other competitors for the great racing, on to the next one at QR in a month.

    Photos thanks too Action Sports Photography Australia and Matthew Paul Photography.

    @t_b_williams and any other bris/gc residents:

    SKIDPAN at Mt Cotton
    The next booked date is 16th June 2018 which is a Saturday Night – 4.30pm to 9pm under lights.
    The cost to use your own car is $135 and To use Paul’s Lotus Exige is a total of $235
    (If we get 4 or more people renting the Lotus – those renting will get $25 each back on the night. Discount from Paul !)

    It will be the same format as before with 4 x 10min sessions, but being night time the track will stay far more consistent as the water won’t be evaporating
    As is the past, payment guarantees you a place. Please contact me asap if you wish to attend (this will fill quickly – night time on the Skidpan is awesome & Paul uses heaps of diesel)

    PM me if keen and I'll pass on your email to the organiser.

    Would a certain 17 old (at the time) about 3 or 4 days away from his P's be allowed to have a skid? Not naming any names.....:whistling::whistling:;)

    Not sure man, think you need your P's?? The guy who runs the event is Paul Stokell - check his website and read the fine print.

    @Tristan Jones a RWD is the best for the skids man. There are AWD focus RS's that go alright, but they have drift mode.

    I think you mentioned earlier in this thread about the possibility of getting into the support races for the Bathurst 6 hour? Just a query if you did mention it, is that a Qualification process or simply as easy as paying to enter?
