    Vintage racing in Australia

    While over in Oz I'll be checking out a few moto events and hope to make it out to check out the classic racing scene there. There are a few groups running vintage and small bore stuff, looks like a tight knit club. Should be pretty cool. The first club is:
    http://www.postclassicracing.com.au/
    and this one races both vintage and modern small bore stuff up to 111cc:

    If anyone has any contacts, friends, info etc. I'd love to hear it. While I have been there before I'm sure there's plenty to learn. Here's some snap from the above sites...

    Rosco,
    If you see a TD1C at the races look for the owner, Neil Collins, and say hello for me.

    Scott, probably not the same Neil in Australia, but you know Neil? Did you ever see the Atlas he did?

    yes. I knew him for a while, he came into the coffee shop quite a few times, and he worked on a few friends bikes, and also, as he was into the boat /sailing thing, and my friend had a 60 foot sailboat. then i heard he got married, had a kid, and went off somewhere . .

    In my younger years, he was a good resource. I had mutual friends adn got to know him a little better when he was sharing his shop with my buddy Joe (Crazy VW Joe). I was real impressed with the Atlas, mostly just because I knew what he started with.

    Ummm did you work in a coffee shop?
