Stromlo all sorts

Some snaps to give you a feel for what 24hr racing is all about. This first image from the event photographer - long exposure of lights down the front of Mt Stromlo. Most shots courtesy on Ben and his fancy new camera.

Rare moment of looking like I know what i'm doing on a switchback, and hanging on somewhere in the midst of Pork Belly (below)

Craig still looking strong early on his 19th lap
Are we there yet? Bliss in the Z position!
