Hi everyone,

I just got informed today that the large scale on road Aussie champs are being held in Adelaide this year. It was going to be Victoria, then QLD, but because of some rules and a lot of QLD nitro guys going to Thailand for the Worlds, the large scale executive have swapped the venue to Littlehampton, SA.

Anyhoo, the pres. of the club asked me today to put the feelers out to see if any bikers would be happy to come to sunny Adelaide for the event.

The dates will be November 7-9, Entry forms will going soon.

At this stage there could be up to 5 local bikes racing.

OH, yeah, Roadie softs work fantastic at littlehampton.

I would put my vote in for ic sunday for much the same reasons

seems grip is a real problem in these cooler months the track was awful sunday arvo when I tried it
Clint drove well considering he didn't have the magic green tyres

im not too sold on the sugar water and rubber tyres
seems to work for only a small part of the day
better to get more blowers to get the track clean

Hey, I put a video together that Sam took for me from a few weeks ago. Its a 6min Qualifier Rnd I shortened to 4mins, has all the best bits including my big slide onto the front straight and into a big wheelie. You can also see the bikes loose traction on some corners. No GREEN Roadies in that Rnd.. Enjoy
