I can not remember the 15 racing at Oran Park in th hands of Matich but do remember the 19 at a meeting where it took the track record at the end of the meeting.

What I do remember very clearly is that at that meeting there was a demonstration race of what was known as Super Karts who were very very quick, the rumor at the end of practice is that Matich asked the Organisers of the meeting to tell the Kart drivers not to go so fast on Sunday as they were up there with his times if not quicker, as I said that was the rumor going around the pits post practice.

Thank you for your courtesy John, it is appreciated.

What I should have said is, "most of us Australians who understand and appreciate our motor racing heritage reject..." etc etc.

It has been subsequently shown, to our everlasting disgrace, that the public would accept Mickey Mouse driving a mobile garbage bin, as REAL motor racing, if it was fed up to them by a manipulative corrupt and vauleless media.
