Finally made it to Oran Park

Hi guys,

I have posted the review of my day at Oran Park in the general section:

It was so much fun but tonight I am tired and aching all over. What a day.

Cheers.

I knew you would know Astra.

I had a look at my tyres today. Very sad.





They look a lot worse when viewed from the side.

Cheers.

Looks like you will need two sets of wheels - one for the street and one for the track!!! Those tyres look scrubbed on one side too - assume front wheels out of alignment?

I might give regular tyres a go like Daniel. Worth a try.

We did the half track that did not include the bridge part. Next time the guys who organised the event are opting for the full track. Costs more but is more challenging.

I might take it in for an alignment so I can see the look on the tyre techo's face.
