    There was a huge storm front across most of NSW yesterday, I think it even made it to Gunnedah/Tamworth for some much needed rain

    Mate, I heard it was 42 in Tamworth yesterday. I raced in that last year and it was painful. Hopefully, weather is better for the first meet of 2019.

    Oh look... Gunnedah is just like Penrith right now.. :) Although we are meant to be hitting 45 plus tomorrow..
    You would really hope that March is a much more sensible temp extremes than now..

    Same weekend as the F1 in Melbourne. Can one of you local guys order a few cool days please? That 40+ stuff last year was just too much for an old whinger like me.

    Great. Murdo said it was a cooler day up there too. Go rain!

    Are you ready for Casino? I will go/come if Murdo's cold passes and he's up for it.

    Great weekend with only four bikes turning up meant plenty of runs. Great to have Greyimport and Grasshopper there for moral support. Surprised myself by running good numbers straight off but fell back a bit as the day got warmer and found a few red lights trying to get the perfect start. We retired early for drinks and made a fire for the evening.
    Sunday was clear and cool again. Similar numbers for the times to Saturday with my best at 9.344 @ 118.14Km/h with a 2.136 60ft. Frankster did a bit better running a low 9 sec pass. I broke out in the semi final by .005 sec and Frankster was runner up in final.
