So we are back!  2017 was the last time we attended this event and we debut the XF there so we are super keen to get back to better our personal best.  we have made many improvements since we were there so it will be interesting to see what times me and Melissa set.  
 
Hope to see you there!

Ok so we got heaps done on the XF over the last week in preparation for our race week. Straight after Wondai Street Sprints we head to Townsvile over the Easter break to race at the Reid Park Sprints at the Supercars Track. 

We pull the mini spooled diff out and put in a nice LSD center. Then we changed the gearbox oil and adjusted all the suspension ride heights. Lowered the front a touch and raised the back a bit just to get the car more level. Next weekend will be changing and cleaning filters (fuel and air). I will also change the brake fluid and power steering fluid.

I will try my best to keep everyone updated!

Cheers!

So we are totally prepared for race week in less then 2 weeks time! Me and Melissa are both starting to get butterflies hahaha.

All we have left to do next weekend is to bleed the brakes,  give the XF and the Tilta-Trailer a wash and grease and we will start getting packed and ready to go.

Quick update!
Fantastic end to our weekend managed to get 3rd in class and stayed in front of the Holdens. Got a sweet trophy and some oil and brake fluid for a prize! Mel beat her personal best by 2 seconds and gained a wealth of experience.  The Barra powered Psicho XF performed beautifully all weekend with just a few minor adjustments to the gear shifter and tire pressures.  I had to nip up a few nuts and bolts here and there but the car was fantastic
 
I would like to thanks our sponsors:  
Bursons Auto Parts Rockhampton
Hill-Billy Hot Rods
Tom Keepkie Excavations
Falcrum Rockhampton
Pro Dyno Rockhampton
Bridge Street Tire and Mechanical
 
So we are now getting prepared to race at Reid Park Sprints at the V8 Supercars track in Townsville.  So I hope we can carry the moment there and if we're lucky we may come home with another trophy.
 
Cheers everyone!

Ok I got a bit of time to do an update for you guys and girls!  Both Melissa and I had the very best Easter weekend at Townsville. What an awesome event the Marque Sports club hosted!  Racing and Drifting for 2 days and combining a car show as well!  The Sprint racing started on on Saturday morning and concluded 5 pm, then a drift display was on till 8pm. Mel improved her personal best by over 6 seconds and was siting in the mid 60s on average.  I broke into the 50s and my best time put me on a 59.44. All my runs but the first one were in the 59 seconds barrier.  I managed to pick up a Second place trophy. Melissa best time was a 65.83.  I was so very proud of her and she displayed beautiful lines in her driving technique and the gopro never lies. :lol:
 
The Drift cars came out on the Sunday and we took our puppies down for a look.  They loved it. we stuck around and watch a few then took off to explore Townsvile even more with going up Castle Hill and watched some drifting from up there.  Then we went exploring Mt Stuart because the Marque Sports Cars Club puts on a Hill Climb there so I want to go check it our.  Looks like a fun tack to climb.  
 
So our Easter was fun as!!
 
I'm also putting together a Documentary on our race week.  Toby Price inspired me to do it so I hope you enjoy and have a laugh. I will do a big up date once its published so stay tuned.  You can also see updates on our facebook page JDT Racing.
