Well, beside of the trip to the Castle Run, i had been at this years Race 61 hot rod meet.Its a 6 hours ride through real outback coutryroads. Had to go by truck, because i met a friend whos BSA M 20 i had worked with. So, his bike and my rigid A 65 Lightning ("Grey Star?")side by side on the bed with camping stuff and off i went.
See some pics
on the road...
small villages, almost forgotten by time with cobblestones and dusty roads.
My camp in the shade; nice spot, because it was quite hot.
did i mention, that it takes place in an old airfield museum?
as you can see here.
German Ford Taunus with roof pop-up tent. (The rockets are not part of the car)
Fiat Topolino with V8..
BSA Board tracker with B 33 engine. did the 1/8 mile run quite well.But raced in the class up to 500cc.
By the way: I raced the "Grey Star" and was best in the class up to 900cc!! Did win a second hand piston on wooden block plus t-shirt..but was good fun.
As usual, the racer pilots got the entrance fee back (40 Euro).
Was a big events with thousands of spectators. If you wanna seee more about, you will find surely some films on you tube under Race 61.
