The incident involving the # 25 Porsche is under investigation !!!!!!!!! Most likely nothing to do with the driver spending some time in the Pit Stop Bar chatting up the lady.

hey I like my beer.must try the local brews...

Thursday nights racing was great FUN !!!,
Had a wiring problem with the blue lane but luckily got it sorted which only gave us time to run have the cars , so no results as yet.
The # 23 Porsche smashed the lap record with a 5.308 on red lane driven by Gavin.
After the race we took the liberty of running a couple of solo laps with the car. " Thanks Monte
That car just loved the Rhino and posted a time of 5.178 !!!
No further action was taken by the Stewards regarding the # 25 Porsche.

Thanks Richard. OK, we'll wait until you have a chance to run the other half; hopefully fairly soon as the suspense is killing us............. :o

Great about the new lap record at The Rhino!

Yebo .... Yes the guide flag broke and I don't think there is a quick fix.
I sent a PM to discuss options. Will resend in the morning.

Thanks for posting the results of the Round at the Rhino River Raceway, Gavin.

Congratulation to Monte (kidvoltage), Rob (cgyracer) and Dave (DRW21) on their podium finishes! :text-bravo:

Great that you were able to fit both Rounds into a single month, Richard & Gavin, plus the little something extra at the Shamrock. Always a pleasure to have our cars raced on your track in SA. Also very nice that you now have a new track record at the Rhino River Raceway!

Off they go now for two more Rounds down under in New Zealand!

Thanks to all in SA, that's a pretty amazing result for the #23. That's quite the stack from 2nd to 8th. Must have been some tight heats and great fun to watch.

And I'm honored. I don't think I have another car that ever held someone's lap record.

On to New Zealand!
