    I'm hearing for 19 season.

    XD started 1979, and it will take them 12 months to build one.

    are you sure? Thinking about it I think it was Garry Wilmington that first had a xd on the track
    I just looked up a web page, only 2 XD's ran in the 1980 touring car championship (First year that Moff didn't race in it) and only Wilmington and Murry Carter
    i was actually thinking it may have been English, but cant see him listed

    Murray Carter rings a bell.

    Yep, Willmington had the first track XD - light metallic blue from memory, hardly had any sponsorship decals on it.

    I was reading through Auto Fiction the last couple of days Aug edition can't recall anything on Tru Blue, was it the edition before Slow ?
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.
    Sydney is Sky Blue HAL Premiers/Champions 2017 - the Double.
