    I'm assuming he did DISC as well as the Vodaphone Arena. So yeah, thanks Ron.

    We raced Tuesday and Thursday nights at DISC and I loved being one of the first on the track. The wood would talk to you when you rode over it. Siberian Pine. Beautiful. Every time.

    I couldn't buy shit roll, rice, pasta or oats this afternoon at the local coles in Torquay. I'm pretty sure most of the dickheads buying this stuff don't usually buy it - except for the dunny roll.

    I've also noticed most of them walk with a limp and are missing most of their teeth, it definitely takes a certain type of person to think this is a solution to something. shit cunts.

    I’ll stand corrected, but I’m pretty sure hisense is Webb and DISC is a Schurmann.

    As far as indoor tracks go, I haven’t raced or ridden at DISC. Only Hisense and Launceston

    Ah yes, it is a Shurmann.

    I'd race in Sydney at the Dunc Gray 'cept it's over the other side of town from where I live. And Sydney is a cnut of a town to drive around. I was lucky in Melbourne - DICS was super easy to get to from the CBD after work.

    Can’t remember who designed Launny. It’s an odd size, like 285m or something, with tight bends and long straights. I liked it but reckon u could feel the G’s more than hisense. Plus I was going absolutely shithouse. Was going bad anyway, then fell off at Latrobe and went worse. Didn’t loose any skin but was badly bruised, fucked my back and must have hurt my kidneys as I was having to piss every 15 mins. The only form I showed the whole week was out on the turps after Devonport.

    David Foster the wood chopper was coming into the tunnel at Launceston as I was going to the track centre. I thought the walls were closing in. He’s a huge man.

    I love riding gravel roads. I have a lot of them around home, and if I go on holidays to places like Bright, Broulee or Lake Eppalock then there are heaps of interesting routes to take.

    ...and here’s my own ‘ketingting’ (Indonesian version of a longtail) of the non-racing variety on the Mahakam River in Kelemantan Timur (Indonesian Borneo) back in 1987...

    Also please send me your mailing address in the Phillipines because I just cleaned my office desk. I found a Pac-Man picture I’d promised to send you amongst six years of paperwork. It’s a bit like Rosheas socks. But you’re likely to have to go into quarantine to get back into the country so I should pretend to possibly post it to you there?
    It is on top of the pile of things to do. Along with converting my superannuation to cash. Ie 1.65% Which is a lot better than the morons running the funds will do with it. I’m pussed off I couldn’t get it done on Friday. It’s already lost 7% since then.

    I saw this racing in NZ in the 90s against "standard" GP hydroplanes. Running a gas turbine helicopter engine, it was almost silent compared to the supercharged ethanol burning big blocks. It caned everyone else
