    I would love to watch a round of this series - any idea if there is a round in WA (Barbagallo/Wannaroo Raceway) this year?

    what basic outline can you give of the days? practice/qual/race/etc rough times... and entry details for spectating.

    fat chance i'll actually make it, but i need some R&R and a quick getaway could be in order.

    I wish...... I'm too cheap me. Too much enthusiast and not enough business man........

    Maybe I should take up pharmacy, then I could be the one playing with all the toys instead of fixing 'em.......?

    Sounds like car racing to me........

    Up at 5.30 am tomorrow, still working now (8.45pm), and will work 30+ hours in 3 days over weekend, and have already done 40 this week. (oh yeah, not forgetting my wife and 18 month old that I'd like to see once in a while...)

    and Hey, check your car collection one more time...... Yes please......

    No, racing is good in moderation, but it's easy to have enough thanks. Besides, it can be heartbraking too. Sink huge chunks of your life into something, only to see it go up in smoke, or get drilled into the wall...

    I'm still in therapy after spending three dream weeks at Michelotto/Fiorano getting the two new 360GT ready for 2002 season, only to get BOTH cars heavily shunted at the very first race!!.... That one took the wind out

    Goober...

    go out, go to a pub or something.

    talk to a person, sit and have a smoothie or something.

    Touch a tree, pat a dog, play with a child.

    You're spiralling ..........
