singer Brian Johnson plagued by gremlins
GLEN Sunday 6th June, Brian spent the weekend with his wife Brenda at "Watkins
Glen International" for the "Chemung Canal Trust Historic Races", but not
as a spectator. Brian was racing his very rare "Royale RP-4", which was
introduced in 1970 and is one of only 12 British-made cars in existence.
The "Royale" was built by upstarts in an engineering company who felt they
could build a better machine than the auto manufacturers. However, Sunday
the "Royale" wasn't at its peak. "We haven't run very well here this weekend,"
Johnson said. "We've had a carburetor problem, but we're trying some new
carburetors out. It's like anything else. It takes time to get the kinks
worked out, so we're a little off the pace." In Sunday's Rolex Vintage
enduro race, Johnson was 21 laps off the pace, finishing 37th in a 44-car
field. Brenda's pace was considerably better as she finished 27th in a
1957 "Austin Healey Sprite". This is the first time since 1998 the Johnsons
have raced at "The Glen".
Lane in Melbourne
City Council are considering renaming Corporation Lane, a narrow alley
which runs off Flinders Lane, AC/DC Lane as a tribute to the band. Corporation

A decision on the renaming of street is likely to be made in the next month.
If the street gets named in honour of the band it will be the second street
to be named in honour of the band , as "Calle de AC/DC" in Legannes , Madrid
was named after the band in 2000.
