Winton when it's cold and it's damp

Written by 
IT's still dark, and the Fiat's Satellite Navigation doover has successfully directed me from my corner of Geelong, to Rod's place not far from the Geelong Cemetery. There's three of us going to the Winton Historic car race meeting in Rod's new Mazda. By the time we get to the Hume Highway, the horizon has turned pink, and at Winton - a bit after 10 o'clock - a screaming pack of vintage motor bikes is already out on the track, just as though everything is fine with the world and weather. 
As it turned out, our arrival time was ideal.  Our first event was Regularity One
