Historics racing Killarney 4yh and 5th Feb

Post by C-Body Barge » Fri 03 Feb 2012, 09:38

Hi I am very excited for the historic racing this weekend, untill I saw some pics of one of my favorite cars after a crash in Zwartkops recently. I wonder if it can and will be fixed for this weekend :(

May go tomorrow but only if I am certain there will be a few decent cars to watch, prior years recently have been very much over promise and under deliver in my opinion.
Alfa GTV 3.0
Ford Capri Perana V8
Chevy Lumina Supercharged

Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

No need to worry , the other Galaxy driven by Sarel is there as well as the Plymouth Fury driven by Hennie Groenewald with the Chevelle in close attendance and a little blue Anglia close behind them ahead of all the Alfa,s and Gordini's and many a V8 and 6 cylinder . The Street car Challenge is also good especially the Alfa driven by Jan Lammers , He also took the Benneton F1 around the track for about 15 minutes . The sound is good but does not compare thrill wise to the Fury , even flat out you can count the revs . :lol:

They closed off the main road on blouberg beach front last night and had a hand full of the cars going up and down. Good ol CanAm17 was there, good to see you again mate.

Sad to see this one in this state..... i really enjoy watching her :cry:

There is no better sound than a Big block Mopar at WOT :D :D :D

Seems the Fury was involved in some scuffles.

The Fury was not there :( Pre 77 saloon had some good racing between the XR8 and the perana up front.. and some nice scuffles further down the field amongst the Alfa's. No such luck with the Pre 66 and the Gt's. Still enjoyed the days racing.

Some pics, I thought overall there was an improvement over last year but I still feel in some races there was a lack of entries.
