This link is to the results of its last race http://www.offroadracing.com.au/05/cal7-12.htm, Milbrodale Mountain classic, (you will need to scroll down to find the event in the calendar) if you add up the times (car 914) you will find that despite starting last each heat on the Saturday As a result of a penalty for a jumped start in prologue (Qualifying) It was up to third on time and also third the road in the final race before clutch failure near the end of the third lap (Broken centre, now rectified and should not happen again), in The last heat you will see that only 3 vehicles recorded a uicker lap (and they were the front 3 who did not have to pass cars all the time I was having to pass more than 5 per lap and if you have ever tried that in the dust you will understand how much it slows you down waiting for a opportunity to do it safely.
