Early Morning Meet at the Corby Hilton

Convoy to Rockingham and parking in pride of place in front of the main stand

As well as hoons doing donuts along the main straight, eventually there was some racing...

It was said there'd be fireworks if Pauline & Ray's Sagaris was let loose on the circuit...

...and there were

off went the Yellow Peril

Who loves Corby?

The amazing self - captioning car

Gentlemen starting their engines for the main race.  Note the rubber marks on the main straight were from the earlier hooning - not by the TVRs on the drivers parade

and they are off

Meanwhile back in the TVR paddock it was 'Ladies and gentlemen start your engines' for the 70-car Mini TVR Thunder

70-ish TVRs went out onto the circuit

Went around a couple of times
