The meeting was held on Sunday, July 28th as part of the Winter Race Meeting, and a taste of Winter was had with rains throughout the week washing the track clean, creating very slippery conditions. Then a period of beautiful sunshine to warm everyone up for two races, followed by a few showers which returned the surface to its very slippery state.
We had 16 starters for the day with eight O2L, four U2L and four U1.6L
The race meeting on Saturday, 6th July, was held on the first day of the Perth Historic Race Meeting, with WASCC deciding to complete the entire IP and Street Car meeting on the one day, which was a great move on their behalf.
The meeting saw the first appearance of the Matt Cherry driven Starlet in a competition and the little machine was fast.
Matt admitted that he is still coming to grips with the different driving style necessary for this vehicle as against the Monaro but all indications is that it will get faster and faster, already doing creditable 63s.
Sadly a mechanical issue forced her to retire in race 1
