That sucks! I feel really bad for you guys.

It's official. Speed Week at Lake Gairdner has been cancelled yet again. Decision was made yesterday arvo as salt was still slushy in places. Very disappointing to say the least.

I'm sure all the boys are disappointed. What a heartbreaker. Say Hi to Burly and Todd for me. Tell Todd the shop is still standing and the Vanagon is almost done

Nice job Ash! Thanks for showing Burly a great time.
