Normally 3-5 practice runs to get your dial in then you go into elimanation rounds if you lose you are out, If you guys are keen the street meets are the ones to do, let me know if you going to track and I will come down and help you all out

i did a heap of 11's years ago in the vl, best was 11.5 at 120mph. A circuit car isn't a good choice down the strip! That was when it had 250hp less than what it does now

I think they have a web site not sure they are a really active club and do alot of things welcome to any Holden no matter what and normally cruise to most major motoring events, I think it is also in petrolhead in the events section, pretty sure it is around August or September
I will check with a few people and see if I can find out

Resse Fish would give it heaps, there is a few cars here in NZ that will do a mean skid or two, but the problem will be that not every one has 750m plus to practise without the cops being able to ping you for your attempts. The top aussie guys will be the ones to watch like the cross road team and deffinately ELVIS ? but thought he has taken the motor out and put in his drag camaro
