Lake Gairdner, South Australia.
2 weeks before the Dry Lake Speed Trials and 3 days after about 1 1/2 inches of rain. A week earlier it was completely dry.

Sounds GREAT!  Good luck with your record run.

Check out the Ratmuller Racing Salt Taxi - Steve Muller took it out for a test run today. Awesome performance considering it has a 36hp motor - blown by Sir Godfrey.

Well done Dutchy.

I heard the NSW Police decided to stop chasing the T5 with the missile on the roof as they realised that the engine has not yet been ignited and if that occurred, the pursuit would have been in vain.

I might borrow the Lakester and mount it on the Country Buggy.

Good stuff.
