Well my other hobby officially started on the weekend:


more pics latter. We happily finished 14th outright despite running without brakes at all for the last 90kms Shocked
EDIT we even got a special mention here : http://www.offroadracing.com.au/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=700:styles-on-top-in-the-west&catid=17:events-western-australia&Itemid=475
we didn't actually roll over but we did take out a few trees while on 2 wheels Smile

Congrats AJ. I know you were talking about racing last year and its good to see your finally doing it. But that had to be scary as all hell knowing you were running with no brakes.

Awesome James!

Quote :
The perseverance award for the weekend should go to Wayne Panomarenko and James Kenneison (769) who completed full race distance after rolling the Toyota Hilux into a tree, the car coming to a stop with the roof wedged into the vegetation. The car pulled upright the crew continued racing, only to suffer a broken brake line and finish the last lap and a half with no brakes.

That brilliant mate!

I can only imagine the fun you guys had!

Is this an annual race? - It reminds me of the dukes of Hazard (only cooler with the 4x4)

yeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Yeah it's an annual event. There are 5 state rounds the next one held over the Easter long weekend. It is also the first race of the National series so we'll be competing against vehicles from around the country. They will be 112km laps (reknowned for huge jumps) so fitness (or lack of it) will be an issue Laughing Our main goal this year is just to finish every race, aiming towards stepping up in class next year. I must thank my mate Wayne (driver & major sponsor) without him I'd be sitting on the couch.

Another race complete & another 14th outright (5th in class). We really struggled with a lack of top end speed but hit every jump with full commitment/stupidity:

Looks like fun AJ!!

On a slightly related theme, we just got word of the route the Australian leg of the World Rally Championships next month which is happening in my town (little old Coffs Harbour). The start is happening directly in front of my shop!

Season ended with a bang- we finished 14th outright in the last race (5th in class for the year). The Hilux will get a full rebuild over the off season & we look forward to next season.
