Wakefield Park - Sunday 31st August 2008

Post by SELfor50 » Mon 25 Aug, 2008 12:24 am

G'day Everyone,

In 7 days time on Sunday 31st August 2008, i'll be heading to Wakefield to race against all the bimmers for the day.

It's an event organised by the BMW Car Club NSW. They're having me along as a guest for the day...i think they still have some spots available too, if anyone else wants to jump on for the day.
Details can be found at: http://www.bmwclubnsw.asn.au/clubsport.shtml

For those just wanting to come along and see a 1978 W116 - 450SEL pit it against the 'other' german vehicles, i'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Practise kicks off at about 9.30-10am and runs till bout 12.. The super sprints kick off at 1300 and go to bout 1630 or so..

Wakefield park is near Goulburn.

If you need any further details, don't hesitate to PM me.

Cam. :wink:

Sorry for the delay, been out of range.. :roll:

Easiest way to post an update is here: http://topklasse.net.au/forums/showthread.php?t=775

That thread on Topklasse has the run-down and also pics.. I'll post a link to the results once they're on the BMW Club website, and also a video once it's uploaded.

Was a great day, I smashed a heap of bimmers, of whose drivers were making excuses by the end of it... for a 30yr old girl, she went like a dream!!!


On another note, they do have a great motorsport following within their club (the BMW Club) and it's something that I REALLY think should have an attempt made within local Mercedes clubs...... It disappoints me slightly that there's no event organised like this for MB Clubs... if I were to talk to someone, who would I talk to????? :?:

Video's finally up!

Thanks to BB for shooting the footage, and also taking the time to splice the in-car audio with the footage.

There's commentary throughout - a few funny moments... Next time i'll be using a mini-disc with lapel mic for better clarity. 'Un-Fortunately' :rolleyes: the V8 engine is just too loud. :D

Enjoy!
