Nationals at Rockingham Motor Circuit 2nd-4th June 2006 turned
out to be an excellent event for all involved with the S12oc.
The event began
on Friday 2nd for the S12oc as various members arrived on the
camp site throughout the day. S13Eater arrived during the
morning and constructed his castle sized tent. Unfortunately,
S13Eater's daughter arrived minus two fingers which didn't
assist her car polishing skills too well, although she did
manage to keep her Dad's and Den's cars looking great.
Duncan and his other
half traveled all the way from Ireland and turned up at Rockingham at
10pm!! Pukka and Dr Silvia arrived shortly afterwards to join the rest
of the club members.
(Japster) and his better half, Lorna, arrived early Saturday
morning. Amazingly Den did arrive when he said he would, rather
than at the end of the event as usual!!
Plenty of track
action was seen by our S12oc members who resulted is some very
good times - once Pukka had finished emptying the contents of
his sump onto the track.
employed two new racing drivers who managed to gain some
excellent 0-60 times. Den's wife, Lorna, achieved a faster 0-60
time than Den himself on the Sunday, and RichardK managed some
very good times despite his badly slipping clutch.
The S12oc camping
evenings turned out rather amusing as everyone had a few (hundred) cans
of beer inside them! A certain four members of our party disappeared
into a strip club for a few hours on the Saturday night whilst the rest
of our crew enjoyed well done sausages on the BBQ.
RichardK was then found in a sleeping bag covered in rubbish
(photographic evidence was later found!) in the middle of the camp site
without a tent! I wonder who put the rubbish there, Shaun? Tash???
the S12oc club stand were Pukka, S13Eater, RichardK, Den and
Duncan's Silvias. Unfortunately, various other members were
unable to make the event - better luck next time guys.
Dr Silvia and
RichardK enjoyed chatting up various show girls and taking
photos of them sprawling over RichardK's car!
The weather was
fantastic all weekend and this time our Gazebo didn't collapse
A massive thank
you to everyone who turned up to the event. See you all and more
at JAE 2006 in July....................
