Hi there

The F5000 Tasman Revival Series ended with a 2-race event at this year's Australian Grand Prix a few weeks ago. A massive field of 36 cars entered and the event culminated with New Zealand legend Ken Smith in his Team VDS Lola T430 winning back to back championships after two close second place finishes behind Chris Hyde in his McRae GM1.

My images of the event can be seen at the following link (please copy and paste into your browser, as the hyperlink function here is not working:)

Enjoy them!

Hi there

The annual Phillip Island Classic took place two weeks ago and one of the breathtaking on-track highlights was again a massive international field of F5000 cars.

My pics of the event, including the F5000's, can be see at the following link :

Enjoy them!

Hi Kurt,
Is the car ready to go for the up coming season? Is the photo of Ron Grable's car the one you have and restored? If so can't wait to see you drive it like he is in the photo.

It's going to be great seeing the F5000's here in Portland!
