SELfor50 at Winton raceway today, April 6th 2008.
« on: 06 April 2008, 04:06 AM »
Here are some pictures I to today of SELfor50 racing 450SEL at Winton today:

Morning preparation:



Scruitineering bay: yes they are Yokohama A032R tyres and parked next to Cam is a brick... Austin Cooper S



Smile on Cam's dial indicates all is good for the scrutineering - lets race!



Gridded up and ready to go!!



This isn't a great shot but I've put it because it shows an ex-Bathurst GTHO Phase 3, a HQ series racecar, and a Cam:



Pedal to the metal after the esses onto the front straight:

450SEL 6.9 #5440 = V MB 690 , 450SE # 43094 = 02010 H , 190E/turbo # 31548 = AOH 68K

That's so coool!  Well done Cam and thanks for posting 13B.  I so much wanted to come down since I had the weekend off but had too much on.  Man that looks like fun!  Can't wait to see two (or more) 450's on the grid ;D

How about that photo with ole silver and the other two 70's icons.  8) 8) 8)

How was it Cam?

Looks great - Pity M-B didn't do a lot more of this indays gone by.

Is it possible to lose some ride height?

It needs to be lowered about a foot, and the sound level needs to be raised about 25dB.

I completely agree ;D ;D  I'm canning the 6.9 search and the 2dr coupe.  New mission, another TeamW116 car 8)

I'm in Wagga for a week as you know, I put feelers out at my mechanics.  He's got a 78 (approx) milan brown 450sel.   :-\  It looks too good to race and cost about $2000.  Still, I'm going for a test drive on Friday ;D  But it's got "cruiser" potential, not a racer IMO.  280 or 450 - argh decisions.

Mate... cruiser = racer!!   :D ;D :D ;D
I can't testify on a 280, never driven one.  But I do know what the v8 feels like down the straights... no comparison!

Results are up too - Results  Click on the 1st link and i'm at 43.  Only up from here...

O-man, if you can make it the next event you can take silver for a spin and I can guarantee you after that you'll start building a track car!! ;)
