JD and I turned up in Feilding to go to Palmerston North Swap Meet 2012. Part way through wandering the main hall, I flipped open my phone to check Facebook as JD was hunting through a box of old shit.
A new photo had been uploaded by Kerri.
The photo showed a wing mirror snapped off some car… The colour of the car was gliterry pink….
Oh NOES – PERF has been in a smash.
We promptly left the show hall and made our way to the pit garage. (via a quick pitstop for lunch at KFC… we hungry)
Luckily nobody had been hurt, and PERFK was still running. Bit of broken glass here and there and some dents in the door and guard. Jamie managed to bash out a bunch of the dents with his superior panelbeating skills (which he only discovered he had on the day).
Luckily Kerri wasn’t thrown off by this at all, and jumped straight back on the horse that bucked her off.
And managed to smash her own PB and laid out a 1:20.5. AWH SHIT YEH.
Here’s some pics of the damage, and some other random shots of the day.
Pink race tape? SUP!
The waterboy races to give Kerri her helmet.
Hand signs and rotary drivers go together like bread and sausage. Mad Mike has obviously given her some coaching on best hand signal techniques.
Chasing Dan Currie out of the pits
I live for this shit.
More pics from Superlap R1 to come.
Bit of a late-ish night blog update, but I’ve just got back from a secret squirrel meet up with Kerri, who has shown me the fresh sticker job done on her sparkly pink FC RX7 Racecar.
She also was so kind and bought me back a stack of chicken from Wongs Kitchen in Hamilton for me and the flatmates to try (and she’s a vegetarian!!)
Now – check out the vinyl job done by Mad Mike at CRE8GRAFX.
Notice any familiar stickers on there?
You saw it here first. The new glammed up PERFK. WHAKA YEAH.
COMING TO A RACETRACK NEAR YOU!
