This report is from a competitor's view.


Firstly to the flaggies, Ladies and Gents who gave up your valuable time for three days a big thank you. To all the Dad's who gave up there time on Sunday I hope you had a great Father's Day. To the folks from both clubs,QEMSC and the Motorcycle Sportsmen. I am sure there were many who worked behind the scenes, congratulations to you all on a job well done. To all the competitors who entered from far and wide I do hope you enjoyed your self as much as I did. To Lex Dreier who gave me plenty of feed back on Sidecar 17 cheers mate, I will get it right one day. To Glocky, cheers for the ride on the side of the best sounding sidecar that was entered. I am sure we would have been in with a chance if it had not been for all those big Honda 4s, there were about 10 too many of them. But to Max Hooper, Ron Bennett and John Clancy congratulations to you and your passengers for a job well done.


A mate of mine was asking about a certain sidecar competitor ( who shall remain nameless) he said what does he look like these days, My reply to that was that he is now  fat and grey. My mate's reply  was that could describe  half of the blokes here. Enough said I think.


To all the solo competitors I am sure you will join me in thanking all the race officials for a smoothly run meeting. There is not enough room on this race report for me to name all the race officials and helpers but from my point of view I think you all did a fine job. To Dave, thank you for towing my sidey to Warwick. To Bob, John O'Neil was wrong, you can be trusted with an esky full of beer.


To the Drag Racing Club, thanks for opening the grounds for camping. The amenities were kept clean all weekend, I hope the camping fees collected will go to a good cause. My only criticism from the weekend was I thought the track surface was a bit like the old Hume Highway in places. Once again thank you to all for a great weekend. Milto, is there any truth in the rumour that you have been barred from the Deane household?


Also, thank you to Mr Bill Campbell for fixing the water leak near the toilets promptly which had caused a bit of a flood through our pit area.
