    Sheesh mate, I knew it was cold but I didn't think it would snow there.
    The sand trap wouldn't pull you up today ;)

    Saw quite a bit of hail on the mountain in 1987, as Jonny Ceccoto and I thing Brabham the younger.

    Was that the Jonny Ceccoto who raced motorcycles on road courses in the USA (I think)back in the 70's?

    Yes.
    He drove an BMW M3 in the 1987 Bathurst 1000. That year it was a round of the World Touring car championship.
    There is some great youtube if it.
