Ok, obviously I’m a complete amateur. I went to complete the registration form last night and saw the requirements for a tow-hook and non-flammable onesie. Would anyone have any advice on a place in Melbourne to obtain such things without spending a bomb, and without having to order them in? Does Zara do racing leathers perhaps? I think I’ve found a gap in the market for stylish racing clothes for ladies. 🤣

I think all you need are closed shoes , long sleeve jacket , t shirt or jumper, cotton , I bring along 2 spare helmets( old but cleaned) , if you need to borrow. We are all amateurs just having a bit of fun. See you there😃🏎

Long sleeve cotton shirt (no t shirt only), sensible shoes and if no tow hook you can borrow one from me.

What car do you have ?

Ph-ew, thank heavens I checked...I might have spent today hunting down full leathers and turning up in a Cat Woman fancy dress outfit. And let’s be honest, that wouldn’t be a great look for a lady of my age 🤣 Cotton it is. My driving partner in crime did try to tell me that I probably didn’t need a racing suit.

And thank you for the generous offers of spare helmet and tow hook. I have an older Porsche Cayman. Only ever seen road “racing”, but loving the idea of a winding road without worrying about oncoming traffic.

I'll also have a spare tow hook.  Look forward to meeting folks tomorrow :)

Hi to all.

I was hoping that this event would provide me with a chance to meet some fellow PFA members as a new comer.

Unfortunately, I have had a few health scares over the last week, which put me into Hospital to have an angiogram and then a further invasive investigation on my heart.

I was only discharged from Hospital yesterday and while the outcome has been good, with no major surgery required it has left my body battered and bruised.

Therefore I won't be able to attend the hill climb event this weekend.

I wish everyone a great day and hope to catchup at the next SMT.

Regards

John C

 

So sorry to hear that John, but awesome that all the tests came back positively! All the best mate!

Spectators? My other half is working so I've got my boy today. Thought he might like to see some more Porsches😆

A few to kick off with people.   I will put a selection up each day, I think I have photos of most who attended although a couple did go home before lunch so I missed them.

I have just vetted most of the shots I took and I know it's a poor tradesman blames his tools, but at one stage there after lunch I was shooting with a lens that unfortunately had a drop of rain on it, that I didn't see for some time, leaving a blur on some of the what I considered to be reasonable shots only to have them hit the bin.

Otherwise... thanks to the organisers....from a spectator's point of view it seemed to run well, without any mishaps (damage type mishaps)

If.... AFTER I HAVE POSTED THEM UP....anyone would like an image of their car sent to them let me know.   No charge, all part of the PFA HAPPY FAMILY SERVICE.

Thank you to Kerry and crew. Disappointed not to have stayed longer...politeness got the best of me after realising my plus one reaaallyy didn’t get the point of spending your Sunday tackling tight corners whilst battling wind and rain 🙈 But great to meet everyone and see all the lovely cars...and delighted not to be the only Cayman owner.

Hope to see you and that lovely green Cayman somewhere on a run...

 

 

What a great weekend we had , Caught up with people and cars we already know and met some new folks, all great people to stand in the rain with. We had a ball , learnt a lot and had a chance to admire all these cars. Greta , you rock!! Attached a short GoPro video as a reminder what not to do. I overcooked it . Hope to catch up again. Massive thank you to the organisers and volunteers. The weather was a challenge . Cheers.

I think I’ll definitely be on a weekend run. I forget that friends sometimes underestimate my inner speed demon and toughness...when I say “race track day”, they hear “winery”. To be fair, they’re not always wrong 😄

And echo the big thanks to the organisers. A tough gig in todays weather!!

Thanks all for the kind words, very happy to help provide the opportunity for everyone to give their cars a decent squirt! 🙈😎

Special thanks to @hugh and @9fan for their guidance, but a special thanks to @monty188, the bravest driver of the day who stood in the arctic wind and rain all morning like a bloody trooper making sure our excitement wasn't met with an unexpected head-on on the entrance/exit! Cheers boys!

🍻Kez

And also thanks to our resident PFA Media operator - Niko! Cheers mate.

Amazing shots Niko!  Thanks for capturing the on and sometimes off track moments so well!

Thanks Dave, if I'm not out driving my BBC, taking photos of porkers is my next favourite passion.

Great day guys.

Sorry I had to bugger off early.  Had a booking for lunch in Trentham for my 10 yo’s birthday.  

The people were great.  Friendly, engaged.  No wank#rs.

I think I was the only lone that left the road.  My excuse?  Its was wet.  And I ran out of talent.

Thanks to all who arranged and came. A terrific way to spend Sunday morning.  

 

And @wilberforce, sorry I didn’t take you for a ride.  I waited a couple of times but you were too intent on doing more runs. More power to you!
