  1. Here's a new advertising campaign by Lexus for their new 2013 GS model. Basically - take a supermodel and design a racetrack around her beautiful curves http://www.ripplestrip.com.au/forums/index.php?threads/the-tori-500.42/
  2. I know it's more than late, but I was in France on Anzac Day last year (Villers-Bretonneux) and thought i'd share some photos of the service. It was very moving to be there in the flesh, and will be definitely heading to the 100th anniversary of both Gallipoli in 2015 and back to Villers-Bretonneux in 2018. I was over in Holland visiting my family and made the trip into France, and headed towards Amiens the day before. I took my 2 uncles and cousin (who toured Afghanistan for the Dutch) and they were surprised by the patriotism that was shown by even the younger school children from Sydney who attended. At 3am we left the town and drove to the memorial, it wasnt that bad at all maybe 5deg C, sat down for a good seat (10th row aisle) and Kevin Rudd was the honourary speaker. Estimated 3000 people, realistically 5000 ! no seats left and standing on the sides up to 5 deep. Anyway here are some pics... Thankfully we were only about 300mt away... Now the weirdest part... about 2 months ago I started to compile my wife's family tree, and find out that her Great Grandfather fought in WW1 at Villers and was one of the lucky ones to return home.... A wonderful experience that you must place on your 'bucket list' Brendan

  12. Wow Hard to imagine its been nearly 30 years since the infamous rock episode when DJ was leading the Ferodo 1000 in the Tru-Blu only to have a rock placed on the track and robbed him of the win.

  15. Hey all Im just wondering if this could be a viable option for something that myself and a few are working on. Are there any out there that would design and build a routed track for a 'show'. what $$$ will we be looking at ? Minimal scenery...(inc few trees, grass, and armco ) thinking outer dimensions around the 3000x3000mm. Must be transportable... Will email any details to prospective people. Brendan
