The first event had 19 entries, and a jump to 25 was seen just last weekend.


Drivers from 12 years of age are able to compete, with all drivers under the age of 18 required to have a licensed driver as a passenger.


There have been newcomers all-round, and it’s been great to see their development through the events.

Kelly Run

A great day was had on the ‘Kelly Run’ in early May as we travelled through the northeast visiting some of the bushranger’s hangouts. The drive was followed by lunch at the magnificent Tatong Pub.

Thanks to all those who attended, and to Terry Godde for organising the day. Bring on the next one!
