Feb 26 . I visited the 200mm Nitro World's Warm Up race in Brisbane over the last 3 days, only realizing the correct date early on Friday morning at 8.30, freaked out, packed cameras, got airticket and arrived at the track by 1.30 the same day, I thought it was the following week. I was jet lagged and still am, wow. This World's in September will be awesome, the track and organization was fantastic with IFMAR race directer in attendance & give the race commity a big well done with very little improvements to be made before the big event in September. Lots of help from the team who ran the 2001 Sydney 8th On Road Worlds so well, has ensured this will be one hell of a great World's. The home page is http://200mmifmarworlds.no-ip.org This will my biggest production yet, at least 10 cameras, full Slyfox race progress lap scoring to screen during the racing and more . Just wait.

I have done "St Ives 1989", the EP Off Road Worlds video that I helped make, well I did most of the interviews, I was racing myself at that event. Next is the 1991 Detroit EP Off Road WC.

Well the rain put astop to the EP part of the HPI Challenge and Winternats but will be rerun July 30 at Illawarra. Harra spent his time in the pits ansswering the endless questions the Aussie racers had to ask. He also took Simon Nickolsen car off him and did a total rebuild and setup before giving it back to a stunned Simon, who just asked a little quest about his car. Harra spent over 3 hours doing it. On the Saturday one other driver's car was givern the same Harra blessing. Due to the rain, Harra never ran a lap in Australia.Surikarn with Miura as pitman, competed in the Nitro Class on Saturday and had a great race with Simon Nickolsen for a long while.
