Will the Jag make a return to speed this year?

Not this year I'm afraid. Big Gaz has had lots of other things to do.

Ovakil won't be racing either...

Gaz has picked up the motor for Ovakil since it was removed and rectified following his mighty 236 mph effort in the Jag but it is yet to go back into Ovakil. He's had other priorities that have pushed back on Ovakil and the Jag, so.... should be racing next year in one way or another and Ovakil is a lower priority.

I was in Sydney over the weekend and did get out to Big Gaz's Jaguar farm. I witnessed a V12 engine coupled to a Doug Nash 5 Speed sitting in the engine bay of the Shaguar. However....it's a mock up done to see what has to be done to make it happen - quite a bit. Move engine forward a bit, make up new exhausts, radiator placement, etc.

BTW - the Jags seem to be breeding, every time I go there, there are more! Ever checked out the rear view of a 420G? You should!

No Jag this year - probably next year. The Pursuit Special will make a return visit for the commute from camp to lake. The bus will be making the road trip down from Sydney. When the Jag comes down it will have a V12 but probably not the proper big HP one.

If you are coming to Lake G Big Gaz will most likely be at the lake entrance checking wrist tags and stuff. Say hello to him and Big Dave. I'll probably be at the timing van or start line.
