Maserati Club is holding another track day a Calder Race Park in Melbourne Australia.<br>Some Audi Club members will be there having a go at getting some decent Lap times.<br>The Day is officially called "Ferrari Day" but is open to all members.<br>The Last one I went to had a great time, put down a repectable lap time.<br>It is also forcast to rain in the afternoon, that will be great, finally i will see how the A4 quattro handles", may be even getter better times than some of the High powered 2WD cars.<br>At the Last event all I can say there were millions of $$$ worh of cars there, you name it it was there. (Except any BMW's which was very strange).<br>I wish Mr //M3 could get over here love to line you up.<br>P.S.<br>Last event had no brake problems with stock brakes as generally i don't like using brakes whilst racing.

Well it turned out to be another great track day at Calder Racway.<br>Since It was originally organized by the Ferrari club, the predominat cars that attanded where Ferraris.<br>A Porsche 911 RS Turbo's, 3 A4's, about 15 Ferraris, Nissan GTO, Mazda Miata,<br>2 Subaru WRX's, Old 68 Ford 289GT, MG V8, Lotus, Maserati and strange no Bimmers again.<br>Well I will Post some lap times later in the week when i receive the results in the mail. There may be a few surprises in the results, I managed to overtake a couple Ferrari's even with the crap stock tires I am running.<br>I had my car side ways and all sorts of ways, but I kept the Pedal to the metal and let the quattro do its stuff.<br>The ferrari's kept a nice line through the bends, but where they lacked in the turn i made up with Full Power applied and let the 4WD do its stuff. With the crap stock Goodyear tires I should have won the award for the noisiest tires.<br>I had a few people come up to me and say that If i had some decent tires on that I would have put down some hot lap times, and that came from 2 Ferrari owners (one a F355) and the main sponser of the Audi Race team in Australia (Warwick Fabrics).<br>I do not know about some you you guys, But a A4 Quattro with good suspension, Tires and a K-04 is a respectable track car that you won't be embarsed in.<br>As a comparison i got a 1m15sec lap time, A 1.8non-turbo, FWD, chipped, remus got 1m 24sec.<br>I hope I can get a hold of some photo's from someone. Happy racing.
