Rohans Elan Racing Winton May 2006

3 photos of the fun I had at Winton last weekend. 4th outright against a lot of bigger engined cars. Sadly only second in my under 2 litre class as Roger Ealand in his Marcos won outright and is hard to beat. Roger is the guy who used to beat Tony Thompson in his 26R when he raced in England before he decided to come to Australia. I like to imagine that he came to Oz because he want harder Elan competition than he found in the UK from TT....

The 427 Corvette and Shelby 350 GT mustang came together in the corner in front of me before both spun off. I am trying to decide which way to go to avoid running into them. See the smoke off my locked up left hand rear as I brake hard.

Staying in front of big engined Corvettes is hard work

Yes I've heard the man actually say it, "some of those Marcos are bloody quick"
Looks like you were having fun.

By the way I forgot this :wink: in answer to your better half
