    Hope the car’s OK
    Strapping  cars is tricky.  I use the over the wheel system where the strap loops over the tyre.  That stops any chance of movement or loosening of straps.
    The other trick is to make sure that if you’re looping through the wheel, you loop so that the strap is positioned centrally and will not allow for any wheel rotation.  Looking at the photo of the car above, it’s a little blurry but the left rear strap might be a little high and with movement on the trailer, could have allowed the wheel to rotate backwards thus loosening the strap  
    Not intended as a criticism - I’ve been there ... ☹️

    Skidmarks got a reaction from 9er in Whats for sale (in Australia ) and interesting Thread   
    In its current state, it’s a $250,000 - $270,000 car.
    If you’re looking for a more “original” example (local or OS LHD), be ready for $350,000 +.

    Skidmarks reacted to KGB in Melbourne Mobile PPI (& servicing)   
    My 928GTS underwent a PPI today arranged by a NSW based potential purchaser.
    David Brennan of Nurburgring Mechanical arrived on time a my place this morning, was extremely thorough, most professional and good humoured.  Even took the time to  talk me through the couple of minor issues he discovered. 
    I'll definitely enlist him for my next Melbourne PPI.   Five star service!
    Good bloke.

    I was having a look at this, the fabspeed kit is easily reversible back to stock...Maybe it's the k's on the clock, GT cars price seems to be swayed by k's more than any other porsche.
    Also the ad blurb of "Priced to sell, too many cars not enough garage space. Need funds for house deposit."
     
    Pick one mate, may as well have thrown in a new baby as a reason for selling too to ensure all bases covered.

    Very Rough, unedited & short video of some of the track action.
    Thought I would share some footage I captured as you might like to see your vehicle on track or if you were not able to make it a general idea of the track action.

    Sounds like a great idea.  
    Perhaps we have a session for cars from the 50’s and 60’s, 70 and 80’s and so on?

    Yes, I spent a lot of time on the phone coaching my wife on how to use the pool filter (which we've had for 10 years). The 491 was a blast around Winton. A little slow on the straights but that was a good opportunity to take a quick breather and check the mirrors. The green group allocation worked perfectly with everyone at a fairly similar pace, despite the broad range of car types. The afternoon all in sessions were fine. The fast guys in the cup cars and GT3s were very respectful and patient to us slower guys which made  my experience very enjoyable.

    Hey guys. I'm still buzzing after a fantastic weekend! Thanks everyone for making it such a great event. I've put together a short article and photo gallery which you're welcome to download from. If you're sharing on social media, please credit @911_kuhlture / 911kuhlture.com . I got lazy with the camera pretty quickly and was too busy driving or socialising so I'm sorry to the many I didn't get a snap of.
