:cool: Hi there folks , is there anyone here going to th Sandown Historics in a couple of weeks ? I will be taking 'Saggy ' across for some more exercise and the Brock '73 car will also be running in regularity .

As at last monday there were 350 + entries so it should be a great event again.

I'm going with the Cooper, it will be no. 37 in JKL, pre 1961 racing cars for those unfamiliar with our classifications.

Nope, I would love to go for a look but I am going to Mt Gambier to run at the hillclimb.

Will be attempting to assist the Charger if that is possible, presuming the engine goes back in before then.

My favorite piece of road, over the top at Sandown down to Danenong Rd corner.

And for a lot of the afternoon I was the only one this side of the fence - most people didn't bother coming past Dandenong Rd corner

We went up there last year, to "the esses/Marlboro Country" for old times' sake but with that dirty great big cyclone fence , it just wasn't great for spectating.... maybe if I had some stilts.....

Our Charger made it through the weekend ok, and is now out for a spell. From a long way down, we were reasonably happy to slowly progress forward in big fields, but boy are there a lot of big horsepower cars! I know Sandown is "the home of horsepower". I know we were better off in this department than plenty, but I'm reminded of Sean Connery's words in "the Untouchables" - why did you bring a knife to a gun fight?

It's all learning, fun, and nostalgia! :)

So many great cars this weekend. Great to see the parade of Chargers, Williams, F5000s, sporties, etc, etc.

Well done organizers!

Richard Carter's 1:15.8205 on the Sunday arvo seemed a pretty racey sort of a lap - setting any sort of record???

The sequence of images plus a link to the results page to help with car identification appears on the left.

Enjoy them,
