Paul,

Good luck and enjoy! I look forward to seeing and hearing about it all. I probably don't need to tell you, but take care as we know what has happened to some experienced drivers in tarmac rallies when they momentarily get it wrong. Unlike racing circuits, there often isn't room to run off if you stuff it up. We don't want to hear of anyone attempting to punch holes in that Tassie scenery.

Paul,

Have some fun in The MerChevy, I think you might.

Better pack plenty of changes of underwear.

Regards,

Indeed today i am somewhere between totally scared and excited

we have a very strategic plan for driving off camera and we have fitted the optional "unnecessarily untidy" on camera module in the engine control system

with a crazy 600hp we may have to pull a few plug leads if it rains

we are going to do a infomercial from all the video/still outputs when we get back

thanks for the well wishes
