Tell me about it :(
As with most public events it's pre-book only and my ticket literally fell through the letter box as I was looking at this :?

Current ride: M2 Razorback
Location: Mouth of the Port in the Shire of Hamp
Good news regarding York (now confusingly renamed Melbourne) Raceway...
Heard through a friend on Pistonheads that sufficient tarmac has now been laid for 1/8 mile runs to be held, and the inaugural event is this 8th/9th August.
They intend to extended it to allow 1/4 milers next year.
Great effort down to the determination of a few, and over £100K crowd funding by many :clap:

Might have a bash at that :yup: , I've been following the progress and did donate a few quid towards it plus it's only an hour and a half from here.

Even the slightest rain stops proceedings, likewise any vehicle that drops the smallest amount of oil/water will be pushed back.
Annoying when you get some Herbert in their car with the air con running on a warm day that drips on the startline or blows a radiator hose and spreads antifreeze everywhere...the worst contamination on a race track :x
