Written by Adrian Diehm

Two events were held at Wakefield Park on the 23rd and 24th of June 2007. Saturday was a Sprint Race put on by the Austin Healy Owners Club and Sunday was the All Britsh race meeting put on by TSOA NSW. There was also an open practice day on Friday the 22nd.

Wakefield Park is located in Goulburn NSW, midway between Sydney and Canberra. At this time of year its a bit cool (read as bloody cold). The morning temperatures were between -6 and 0 for the 5 days we were in Goulburn

Friday was an open practice day. We had a few runs to make sure our Mk1 had survived the trip and I needed an observation run to obtain my Race Licence required for Sundays All British Race day.

The Subaru was immensely fast passing both the Nissan 350Z and the Mk1 down the front straight. The Nissan 350Z didn't quite have enough to pass the Mk1.

There was a good turn-out for the Sprint Race on Saturday.

Sunday morning was very foggy. Racing was delayed until the the fog lifted enough so that the flag marshals could see from one flag point to the next.

When the fog finally lifted enough you could see the back straight from the pits.
