Confessions... star stuck... Targa

I have to own up to something tonight... I enjoy motorsport... I know please try not to fall asleep.

Jonny and I spent this evening watching Targa. We took his nephew Brandon along to catch the night stage under lights at the DEC. I reckon there were over five thousand people out there.

After dropping Brandon home, Jonny and I pushed on down to Wrest Point to get a closer look at the cars. Usually there are stacks of people and you can't get close at all... but this evening there were hardly any people round. The atmosphere was much more friendly (lacking in bogans). Jonny and I chatted with mechanics and drivers as well as getting a very good look.

We also saw... but I didn't want to get too close.

He's in the center of frame... still no ideas?

Still no idea?... this guy

Jim Richards and Barry Oliver have won this race 8 times. This is their brand new (Less than a 1000kms) $300, 000 Porsche GT3


This little puppy is another rare beast


A brand new $500, 000 Austin Martin Vantage... I know think of all those people you could feed in Africa.
