Good old days 1992
« on: September 01, 2011, 08:05:28 PM »
Found some old pics. 1992 Nationals Roodepoort Hyperama.
Good old days when nationals was a one day event.
Check out driver stand , no steps and race control in a make shift gazebo.
Best of all , lap counting was manual. ;D

Those were 1/10 pan cars and yes the Red car was the wide version. Those days the cars came with seperate wings and they mounted with piano wire directly onto the rear pod and not onto the body. Check the holes in the back window. ;D

This reminds me of the days you used to pick teams in the park for rugby and soccer.  Then the okes would Ching Chong Tcha to see who was skins and who were shirts.

I wonder how many classes they had back then, by the look of the cars in the car park it would only seem like 1 class.  I was 24.
