Hot and 34 Degrees was the weather prediction for the 1st round of NSW Motorkhana championship. Another long hot day I murmured to myself as I awoke. Luckily, the day was neither hot nor long. Rain in the morning and overcast skies for most of the day saw pleasant temperatures and an initial wet ground giving way to a cool dry surface.
Attendance to this round was expected to be down due to the MINI club’s 50th anniversary celebration seeing the absence of minis, mokes and A series powered specials. Despite this attendance came close to 20 entrants which did make for a more relaxing day which concluded about 3:00 pm.
Ted Merewether and Dave Collier competed with their kids in road going Renaults while Sam and Andrew tore up the ground in the R16 powered special (Despite a bit of a miss). Phil East and Daughter also demonstrated some blistering performances in their Honda powered special.
Ernst initially ran the beautiful Alpine while Sonja ran the Cuppa Coffee. However Ernst had problems with the wipers and cohabited with Sonja in the Cappuccino.Today was certainly a WD for him. Never mind Ernst next time you will have a blinder!!
