It was my home for a year. I got similar pics of the bateleurs firing, but quality is bad as it was taken with a mik and druk.

Those Bateluers are awsome!

No G6?

Nice pictures  :thumleft:

Not my daughter, This girl was fearless, climbing up and over everything the boys got up to.
The Mother must have been quite tired after that day ;D

Nice. Was daar in 1991.

En, is die D40 nou in die mark?  >:D

Hier is fotos wat ek laas jaar daar geneem het.

I was also somewhat involved with these during '78 - '79.  Did you go to Smitsdrift with the initial testing ?

Names which come to mind: Capt. Skalekamp; Loot Harrison; Bom Boje; Samjoor Viljoen(mad mad bastard) and Staff Flippie (Q-stores)

How much do they charge to rent the D700?
