Winton Historic Meeing 2014

PostPost by: rgh0 » Tue Jun 03, 2014 8:13 am

A few photos from Winton last week. Had a good weekends racing until the last race on Sunday when I got punted by a car behind me and spun off the track and slid about 200 metres in the grass and mud backwards just stopping a metre from the concrete wall. Luckily no significant damage to the car, just a small crack in the rear where I was hit.

And I thought historic racing was a pursuit for gentlemen :roll:

cheers

Nice pics! And looks a fun mix of cars.

People keep mentioning the gentleman thing - and getting punted into a spin doesn't sound like it is much better down your way.

Sorry to be rather late to this one Rohan, and sorry to hear you got punted - doubtless by a metal car who overestimated his own ability to pull up :( It seems to happen too often to our cars....

Anyway, I hope the car (and driver!) will be back soon! Any chance of you coming up to the Tasman Revival later this month?

Would you be OK with Seth putting some of your shots up on the website?

Thanks Rohan - quite understand about the trek to Sydney - am supposed to be going to WInton this weekend but with a slipped disc might be problematic :(

Any chance of some shots from Sandown?
