Re: News From The Lake: Speed Week 2013.

Wo. that is impresive for the Jag, I am so glad. Question: Is there any way to remove the limiter? Seems a waste to not unleash it a little more on the last day...

Re: News From The Lake: Speed Week 2013.

Please note correction: Norm Hardinge has run 207mph in his 34 ford which he has taken to Bonneville a number of times recently. This is a red hat and class record for Gairdner and that is great news for a top bloke and absolute supporter of the sport for many many years. It was USA driver David Haa...

Re: News From The Lake: Speed Week 2013.

Onya Norm! 209 is pretty quick for an exposed rollcage! Had he done 200 at Gairdner before? I have watched him just miss a number of times....

Re: $25 annual fee

Sorry, I am a bit out of touch here too...

I am living in the UK for the next few years do I need to pay too?

I don't want to come back and be slammed by a five year hit!

Re: Al Fountains Lakester is for Sale

That is a bargain. Good car, well made with passion. Hopefully the sale helps fund more stuff from these guys. I wonder if there is any sponsorship connections that have to be kept with purchase or if it is clear title? Regardless, a cheap way into the top end of the sport and probably some room to ...
