  9. Winton is always a bit of fun. I went there weekend just gone with a mate to take his car around for the fun day. It was great to talk to Gearheads again instead of the drool I talk to at work.

    One thing to watch out for though is the Cockies. A few of them met their fate on the weekend and I can only imagine what its like to his one on a bike!!! :shock:

  10. A friend of mine once hit a kookaburra at about $1.20... He said that copping such a large bird in the head certainly didn't tickle. I suspect that a Cockie would be worse because it's a pretty big bird. Add to that the extra speed on the track, and it could be rather nasty!

  11. Winton has a good lay out and a pretty good track, however it lacks elevation...it is too flat IMO. The surface is a bit on the bad side due to cars/drifters but it's still bearable :)...assuming it hasn't been fixed since my last time there (which was in 2009 :?)

    Had 1 race there and it was great, until I pushed my boundaries a little too far into turn 1 haha.

    Hope you enjoy it out there :).
