(Updated 14/7/2012 With Race Report) I won’t go into too much detail tonight, because I’m only typing because I can’t get to sleep!! I will add some more of a report tomorrow.

  2. Andrew Mackenzie says:

    Uh oh, looks like I’ll need to check/replace transponder as short course has missed laps during final.

    • Andrew Mackenzie says:

      Yeah, dodgy wire. Transponder starts flashing but if I move the wire it stops til I let go move wire again. Will need to cut and replug. I thought the truck was goin better than that 🙂
