There is a very tidy Hatch racing. He came from Perth, so you won't have seen it before. It's quick too.

Will it be as quick as my MX5??? Will find out tomorrow. It should be, it has double the HP.

Mark Jewell?

Have seen him compete in support races at Bathurst 12 Hour & MCM.

Had a quick Nc XU-1 before the hatch.

Seems to venture to the Eastern States fairly regularly.

Yeah its mark. . He only had the car a year or so and still developing but goes and sounds great! He also raced bathurst as support for the last 6 hour. One of our long time historic touring car members has started a new company, race car transporters. Was last minute room on the truck, so off they went .

The car presents very well. And looks to be built to a high standard. Not a cheap car to build I bet. He went about 2 seconds quicker than when I was there last. 1:21.2 is his best time from what Natsoft is telling me. That's a good time. Any car around 1:20 or quicker is fast.

The car is actually fairly basic, just has a few very good components, good engine and gearbox, reasonable brakes(he plans to work on this further given time and money), suspension is basic, all the known mods, double adjustable shocks.
It is quite a good package.
