I just received from the Adams USA CREW, who this year have just left Newcastle USA, where Graeme Barwick and Brother Bruce competed.

GB rites;

"Hi Max, Bruce took third place in the over sixties event, I broke a chain in the first race, ran last in the second, blew the decompression valve out of the head in the last race but had a fantastic time track was best i have driven high speed drifting through corners ran 14/57 ratio on the 250 Maico a big difference from riverside 14/68. Peter Ward was fantastic again his support is incredibly. Been in London for a week joining coach tour tomorrow hope you are all well.

Graeme Barwick. "

There are Heaps of Photos on VKAUSA.

He will be back for Albury.

Hi all,

Does anyone know who might be able to do a bore and hone on a Mac please ?

With the correct setup. Square to the crank centreline I am guessing would be better than using the base to work from ?

Malcolm,  I didn't do one for this year but Wodonga is Sept 14,15,16  (as per listed above in the discussion section) and as far as I'm aware Numurkah is Nov 9,10,11

That calendar is wonderful - wish I had known about it - is there one for this year Mark?        While I personally don't use Facebook at all, I could get one son to let me know.   I have looked on the various KA calendars but that didn't get me anywhere.  Matthew and I hope to do the Wodonga meet and I don't know about Numurka - have heard that accommodation is scarce to non-existent.  So looking at last years calendar, are the various meetings in the same month year by year or do they change around?  Why all the questions? - live in Tasmania - have to deal with Bass straight ferry costs, and now wife has now retired, opportunity  to run events is now available

I used to do a calendar of events on this forum for many years!

Most people now look on Facebook these days for event dates.  

Last years calendar..

Calendar? There is a calendar?  In all seriousness if there was a calendar it would help karters to plan their year and I quess if it was put on this forum it would reach all of the majority of vintage karters

David, I didn't take any and I am not sure that any of our crew did? However I will check COPPER PHOTOGRAPHY, they were the official photographers of the meet so they may have some on their site.

And I agree a mid year meeting in Coffs could be good.

Sounds good Max.

Pictures ?

A mid year meeting would be a good addition to the calendar.

Just arrived home from the COFFS HARBOUR MASTERS, where a small number of us Vintage members got Lots and Lots of track time.

Doug Mappo blew them all away with his lap times, with the current Rotax boys suggesting they did not want him in their class??

The Twin Clubby drew more than a casual glance, and the Mermaid added to the vision of days gone by, while Phil's "Best UN RESTORED" was intriguing to say the least?.

We made the associated TV news and had heaps and heaps of enquires from people of years gone by.

So all in all a lot of fun and some very real interest from  the spectators some of who I am sure, have gone home and dragged the "Oldy" out from under the bench?

Worth a date on our Calendar for next year?

I think it is.

Vintage tyres are also available to order from APB Auto in QLD. They are the agents for Azusa Engineering in California. They will import any the full range of Azusa parts and you can find part numbers at www.azusaeng.com. I have previously ordered tyres, axles, sprockets, cables, steering wheels, etc. This is the same company that manufactured the original parts in the '50s & 60's. There are also a number of retailers/agents in the USA who may sell the items cheaper on-sale.
