Bungendore Pie Shop / Wakefield Park
Sunday 27th February 2011


Bungendore Pie Shop Run Report

Today we did a split run as some members wanted to attend Wakefield Race
track (which was the scheduled calendar run) and some the Bungendore Pie

About a dozen or so of us met up at Supercheap Autos in Queanbeyan to
head out to Bungendore for one of their famous pies. The were 4
torana's today (a few unfortunately just out of action again) Brad and
Shel on his Harley, Craig and Tom in his Commodore wagon and Steve and
family in their Mazda 6 wagon. We were also graced with a lovely 4 door
Atlantis BLue A9X belonging to a new member.

We headed off at around 11.30am The run is only a 20 minute run but
still a nice leasurly one. Once at Bungendore there was no time for
idle chit chat, it was straight in for one of their great tasting pies.

The weather was looking a little ominous but that didn't phase anyone.
Paul turned up in his trusty 4 door LX shortly after us. He had come
from Wakefield Park to met up with us to have a pie.

An hour or so passed and we decided to head home before the rain set
in. Paul and Mick decided they were going back to Wakefield to take in
some more of the action while a few of us went out to the National
Library to check out the Mustang Nationals.

I have attached some pics of the day for all to see, including a few
nice shots from the Mustang Nationals. I really love the mint green 65
Mustang fastback......almost would have one over my Torana (no not really)..

Anyway, thanks to those that attended with their familes. It was a nice
relaxing afternoon.

Wakefield Park Run Report

Paul had been to Wakefield briefly in the morning but after lunch Belinda, Maddie, Mick, Mitch, Paul and Alec got together in the LJ and LX and headed back to the track. 

The weather held off and this allowed for some good racing, although a number of guys still managed to find a slippery section at the end of the straight and thus spin off the track!   

There were a broad range of vehicles competing in a number of race classes from original pre-war racers, open wheelers, and right up to some 70s and early 80s sportscars, as well as the Regularity event.  This is where you can run your road car with a view to achieving consistent, if not fast, lap times!  Could be something for the Club to consider next year!

The best for us of course was the Nb class which includes the Falcons, Toranas (including a healthy LJ owned by a Club member), rotary Mazdas, Cortinas and Minis, among others.  

All in all a great afternoon spent soaking up the sights and sounds of some great old race cars.
