MSCA Phillip Island wrap up – March 2019
We headed to Phillip Island where the weather was just spectacular, and the driving wasn’t too bad either. Around 146 drivers joined us for one of those rare magical days at the Island. We welcomed our MG friends and familiar Come and Try folks back to the track. Thankfully we didn’t hit the Sandown replay button, with the day running smoothly and many drivers staying on to share a meal and watch the GP together. It was great to see such diversity of cars trackside, from Cobras to Cayennes, Abarths to 86s, we had it all, complete with the odd sighting of the Island’s resident geese.
The competition for Fastest Time of the Day continues between Peter Nowlan and Tim Blakeney, with Peter taking out this round’s line honours in a blisteringly fast time of 1:39:75. His car is aptly named the Bullet.
The Husband and I were left without a ride. Not a bad thing given we were whooping it up a wedding the night before. Truth be told, I secretly wished I was out there taking advantage of the terrific conditions, but alas, not to be just yet. I’m beginning to wonder if this is indeed part of my family’s masterful plan to keep me off the track for as long as possible. Perhaps they’re hoping I’ll forget how to drive.
Sandown, SATURDAY 27 April
We’re back at Sandown on the last Saturday of April and we’re hosting afternoon practice for teams entering the Porsche 6-hour relay. To make this happen, we’re offering a discounted entry fee of $195 and will be finishing our sprint sessions at 4.00pm, while still aiming to provide 4 runs for each group. The event is now open at www.cams.com.au
I look forward to seeing you next month at Sandown.
