I survived the 2000 odd Km on 2 lane blacktop, sucidial wallabies, turtles, lizards, wandering livestock, a cattle drive,too much beer, too much food, so I now report in from my Bathurst adventure. So fasten the seat belts!

Broke the trip down into 2 days. Slept in my trailer with a reheated curry and Johnny Walker & coke. Next day I saw an early Chevrolet rally, so here's some pics from there

Got to Bathurst, marked out our 'corporate box' viewing area then settled down with another reheated curry, more Johnny Black and Duckman
on the laptop.

Up early to set up the BIG tent. A day's work for 6 of us, though that includes power, carpet, TV, lights, multiple fridges, a kitchen, hot water, and all the mod cons.

A fine day during practice.

Raceday. Not so fine!

Nice shot of the classics line up. Too bad about the inclement weather on the day though I love the 'lots of tarps' theme of the photo conveying how bad it was. Thanks for sharing!
