    Oh yes! Abide had to grind thru the Cameron handbrake. Bit like Natuzzi with Coleman aboard.

    Very interesting. Dont mind backing him though. Malcolm Johnston had the same problem yet today hes a legend.

    Brilliant racing!!! Well done to Paul Harris collecting two races in impressive style. Omoto Saturday!!! Big tick.

    Who cares? Theyre moving to Omoto so just enjoy that!!! Theyll out do Trentham in some way so just bloody enjoy good old fashioned grassroots racing. If you look hard enough you’ll find things to nit pick in any country with their industry. Get off your ass and get to the actual races instead of waiting for the next thing to mope about. Honestly.

    So its back to Omoto...brilliant news! Will be an awesome sight watching the Nuggets field go around there. Might be first in first served with the stalls though!

    BANKS PENINSULA RACES

    Good on them! You sound like a “David Ellis band wagonner”. All winners can only come from the Karaka sales and meeting will be programmed to suit them too. Give me strength

    That rich coming from George. Whenever he has a runner everyone is told about it - repeatedly! Hes well past his use by date.

    Opunake? Thats that fickle lot who shot the gap north eh?! Mmmm. And where will they go if NP is sold? Te Awamutu is the next stop.

    Hilarious tripe. Karl had the place immaculate. Id say his years at Te Ngutu would be a slight advantage over your knowledge (remember your an unknown hiding behind a username so we wouldnt have a clue what your credentials are). Ive been at three of the last 6 spring meetings and the track has been great. You’re not from NP by any chance? Sorted out that council issue?? Fancy sitting on tender hooks over a pointless name change. Oh well image over substance is the way now. Lol.

    Back to its best?? Jeez what have you been watching. Last year it was a firm track again and brilliantly presented. The new caretaker has carried on the great work of Karl Stratton (the previous caretaker, now President) who had the place looking like Augusta. But it doesnt matter now eh. The "2 minute wonders" have got what they want from Mr Messaras drive thru assessment of NZ racing and will think that closing down the likes of Hawera (who actually own their land - it is NOT the councils!) is the best thing for our industry. What I look forward to are those clubs who survive (for now) and the pressures they will be under. They will have NO EXCUSES for poor turnover or small crowds. None at all. But the formula will bring prosperity (Tui ad). When they do not come up trumps thats when things get really interesting. Who goes next?? New Plymouth? Pukekohe? Otaki? All second tier courses who are 4th tier achievers. Its going to be an amusing decade ahead. Who will be the first to admit they were wrong to get rid of our better clubs of today?
