Here’s some other pics that I took that’ve been floating round my desktop waiting to be posted.
May as well get em up.
If are the owner of the car and you want the hi-res versions of any of these pics, let me know, and i’ll send one your way.
Thats right friends, Bwarp is proud to bring you the Sunday Slide Session.
It’s pretty simple, any make of car is welcome and its a half day on the skid pad at Hampton Downs.
It’s big so it will be split up the centre so two cars can be on at once, this ensures everyone gets a good amount of time out there. A basic cone course is laid out for you to either practise your grip skills or practise your drift style.
We will have control of the water on the pad which is an option throughout the afternoon.
$40 per vehicle, if you wish to have an alternate driver or (1 only) passenger you can but ALL PARTYS entering the skid pan area MUST have filled in the relevant forms prior.
Just because you have another driver does not mean you get twice as much time, it means you have to share the time for that vehicle UNLESS you pay for the extra person.
But there are ONLY 20 spots available
The normal rules apply as to any meet or event you go to:
No drugs, no Alcohol and no douche attitudes
Spectators are free and the more the merrier, come hardpark and talk some smack.
Any questions please either post here or email email@example.com

Uncles Club, almost sounds like a poorly thought out name for a pedophile ring but in fact it ‘s a fast growing entry level motorsport event worth a look at for those in the Auckland region.
A bunch of middle aged (or older) guys that wanted to have a thrash round a track in their vehicles without having to commit too much time or expense…Oh and of course the fact that GVI’s Peter Johnston is a motorsport nut !!
I have been to a couple of these now and the great thing is the variance in cars, from classic to modern….mild to wild, and now it seems the following is starting to grow from normally running two groups of cars per evening to now running three groups.
Of course it is growing, $65 from 4.30pm until 7pm at New Zealand’s most modern motorsport track, its a no brainer and a great way to test your car or even just your interest in the circuit racing scene.
The rest of the pics are on the flicker (link at bottom of page)
but here is a taste of what you may encounter if you can make it along to an Uncles club track session.

Ahright, so we are in full swing of summer (or atleast we should be, the pissing down rain over the holiday period didn’t have me too convinced) and it’s time to get back into it and catch up with everyone and see what’s gone down over the holiday period!
Date: Wednesday 25th January 2012
Time: 7pm onward
Place: Burgerfuel Johnsonville, park up with the rest of us at the Burgerfuel end of the Woolworths/Countdown carpark.
Usual rules apply, we will be in the public eye, so don’t be a douchebag. No need for skids or VTEC/boosting through the carpark as the supermarket is still in full use at this time.
Keen to catch up with ya’ll and check out some cars and see what everyone has been up to!
