Tethercars rebirth in Seaford (Au)

Written by
On Sunday 22nd Feb a group of guys went down to the Frankston control line field to run some old style slow fun Tether cars. It all started when a guy in Geelong, Bill Hunter built 2 old style Tether cars for fun, he has been building them over the last 15 years, but needed somewhere to see them run. He contacted Ron Savage our speed chief timekeeper. Ron has been trying over the last 10 years to get a track in Victoria, there are tracks, one in Sydney and the other in Bribane at Tingalpa, site of the next MAAA nats, but the track in Sydney will not allow you to practice the day before, only allowing 30 minutes total practice for all interstate entrants. You get 3 runs then go home, no way to encourage entrants, it is ok for the Sydney guys they have a practice day 2 weeks before the monthly comps.
