    Speedcore, you are probably aware, but that is VERY close to where the motorshow is as well, just to make things even easier for you...

    Do you know if the two Porsche Spyders are on display, they were supposed to be down at the Island but were a no-show?

    I'm almost positive the 550 will be, not sure about the RSK, haven't seen it around for a while.

    I'll find out for you.

    a bit of trivia on fox's spyders. you'll never see the engine covers on both spyders off at the same time. fox has only 1 4 cam engine which lives in the 550.

    Nice little bit of trivia. Did the Porsche museum cars do any runs at Mt Buller and were they all there?

    I assume if they were going down they'd be there on Saturday?

    I was down at the Island on Friday, no show, and at the collection on Saturday, it was still there. Could have gone Sunday, but I thought that you had to be there at least Sat and Sun if you were a participant. I have pics too, if anyone needs them.

    Were they both there, or just the 550?

    I was down at the Island all three days and they weren't there. Mind you they weren't the only notable absentees, kind of put a dampener on what was still an enjoyable time. Call it creative marketing or what you will but to me it is just misleading. If the organisers are going to advertise that these cars will be there then they should make sure that they will.

    not 100% sure, but i thought it was from the 550 and the RSK is 4 cam less, but you would have to ask brian tanti to confirm
