    Wish I was there. It's "only up the road" from me.
     
  3. Just saw the word on Landracing.com that it is CANCELLED. Raining cats and dogs, road in is flooded.

    Thats a bummer. Those poor guys can't get a break, seems to rain out very often.

    Good luck next year.

    Wasn't Kieth Turk down there for another attempt at a hat?

    Doh! I've been following the exploits of Dr. Goggles and company, as they prepped for the event in Marx Brothers fashion over the last 30 days. I know there must be a hundred other stories just like theirs. Ouch... The Gods of Speed can have such a cruel sense of humor sometimes.....
     
  11. Bummer! 2012 looks to be the year we see how quick the old mans Knucklehead goes

    What is the reason they can't post pone it till later in the year?
    It must be really disapointing to build a car you can only race once a year and only IF your lucky.
    I would love to build a car to race but distance and the once a year thing makes me think a drag car might be a better idea??? maybe not as fun but better use.

    We did change the date for this year :(
    (have you noticed the unusual weather paterns in the last few years?)
    We do not have any drag racing in this state! (besides, anyone can go drag racing!)
    Distance, people travel 1000's of km's to be at the salt. it just so happens we also have to travel a few hours on dirt too! (keeps many of the idiots away ;))

    We'll be back again, just like we have before when it's rained out.
    can't help that!!
    Bring on 2012 :cool::cool::cool::cool:
