Just a bit of a wrap up.
Jason GTR 469, Chris Thomas and myself headed up to Warwick, It was fu#$#$King cold with a minus 6 one night. Chris with the LJ, me with the LH and Jason with the custom air GP C gemini.
it was a great weekend racing and a top track to run, Chris took out some handy trophies x 2 with some hard racing with the heffernans and shannon phillips and it looked like a 4 car freight train of LJ toranas with really hard and fast racing clearly leaving the other competitors in the wake. It was the best racing of the weekend
I ran the LH in the super sprints with the sports sedans and invited cars running in the over 2 ltr class and took out third place for the weekend. Very surprised with this outcome, but have a trophy to say I won !!!
If you get a chance on the bucket list then Morgan park Historic meeting is a must. They also ran regularity for the non classified race cars and this was also good with few other toranas from NSW running up there.
The highlight of the weekend was " coming up under the bridge, dodging the 300m oil slick, getting shown the kangaroo flag with the 5 o'clock sun in my eyes, dodging the kangaroo on the circuit whilst keeping the boot into the throttle "
I recon Chris will have some great footage of the racing.

It was a great weekend of racing. Cold but nice in the sun
Group Nc was great to watch with the battle of the LJ's.
Chris, was great watching your races and I bet it was even better being involved in some very competitive but clean racing.
well done on taking it to the locals.
Well done on 3rd Grant, I take it you will be back.

Great weekend once again put on by HRCC qld and Warwick District Sports Car Club. Group Nc big bangers was good racing indeed, and 1.27s
is very good going= not to be underestimated) ( i think low 1.27 is current Nc record -2017 resurfacing helped with times) As always a very good contigent of NSW racers who appreciate the meet and the track and who once again were very competitive. Although there were a few incidents causing panel damage on the whole a lot less damage than say the 2016 Phillip Island Historic .
Mind you not having near 60 in a race must make it a bit easier to negotiate turn one and two.
I was out in the Group Nb Mini , one of 17 little fellows in a field of 41 ( under 2 litres Na,Nb,Nc), Had a ball and just happy that the new motor came through the weekend with flying colours. I hit a 1.32 high , which is good for me but the fast minis were doing 1.29- 1.31s . As said above, there was an oil slick that you couldn't avoid - you had to cross it either at turn three or down into gumtree..... It caused me to spin the second time through.... well that and the idiot driver ( me ) who was peeved at being passed under yellow.
One of the 'local holden nuts' and all round good guy and event sponsor was ringing everybody and anyone who had parts to try and get as many as possible Holdens in the Holden only race. ( plug Steve Jeffs - really going out of the way to ensure everyone had a chance to participate. I think that would have been good for a handicap format like they do in Group A and C, where the Humpies get chased down by the pack
Put it on the calendar for 2019 it is a good fun event
