Huntley Hillclimb (Wollongong, NSW)

Went out with a bunch of guys from another forum I frequent, Justin (Civic) got a PB, Yuan (180) and Lou (Starlet) looked like they had a blast the first time out!

















There is only one viewing area, 1/2 way up the hill. I am never walking up there again. Holy hell its steep!

As you can see the purple GTR had a little run in with the Armco, thankfully the only real damage was a cracked coolant overflow bottle. He'll need a new front guard and quater panel, but for a first timer with 390kw it could have gone a LOT worse.

Enjoy!

call me crazy but does #74 have two engines? It looks like there's one engine at the front wheels and one at the back.

And thanks for the pics, whiteballz!

It does. It's Warren Creagh in a Twinnie. 4th overall, by the way.

That's Malcolm Oastler in a Dallabusa - Dallara F394 with Hayabusa engine. But better check out his Ferrabusa - that's a Hayabusa engine in a... sharknose Ferrari replica! Sadly, all the pictures I've seen featured the car without a body.

Oh dear, just realised who actually that Mr.Oastler is: 'Malcolm Oastler (Born 24 April 1959) is the former technical director of Formula One team BAR, former chief engineer for Jaguar Racing, and designer of many race cars.' (Wiki)

Correct on all counts Faksta.

Hearing the dual engines operate at slightly different RPM/response was weird, it sounded like two mini's battling up the hill rather than a single car.

Probably it was a different feeling from what you get from the video when you perfectly know you should hear two engines roaring.

By the way, are there any pictures of a Ferrabusa with its body?

Unfortunately not, I am unfamiliar with that car, but this was his only car at this event.

No, not that one (or at least I hope so - Rea's car was much, much closer to the original 156)

http://www.deejay51.com/speed_on_tweed_2010.htm - here are some pictures, found them at last. Scroll to the middle of the page.

Ah, No he did not have that car out at this hillclimb.

I have A photo or two of it from the same event as the photos you posted actually though. On the same corner too.

I was talking to him about that kit, cost $285 without the hose fittings. It was leaking by the end of the day so not sure about going down that path.

Still, its a lot cheaper than the some $600 HKS want for their filter relocation kit.
