24 Hours – Thursday Wrap Up
Ooh, this has been a long one, down under. Long, fairly
uneventful - but fascinating in its own right for the characters
and conversations coming to the fore, before the track action opens
tomorrow. We hope the information posted already gives you a good
flavour of this track and event.
It's going to
be three hectic days, isn't it, Graham Nash? "That's how it
should be. We're just getting final preprations sorted out - driver
changes, wheel change practices etc."
None of that
for Martin Short: the poor chap is stuck in town with an eye infection.
Mosler driving partner Charles Lamb is prepared to drive for eight
hours rather than six, but doesn't believe for a minute that it
will be necessary. Keeping Short out of his own car at Bathurst?
- absolutely impossible.
More from the Mosler
crew tomorrow: we haven't caught up with all of them yet.
has been a topic of slight concern: perhaps thundery showers on
Saturday and Sunday. After this year of drought, will both of November's
endurance races end up run at least partly in the wet?
If so, how will
that affect the thundering Monaros? Perhaps 450 bhp of Mosler LS6
power will be sufficient? Or will a wet track favour the traction
of the Porsches?
Some of the
answers over pace will become apparent tomorrow: we can't wait for
the event proper to start.
