Early start today as it was to be an 850km day, however we got a message from our Zero Car who came across a ‘Road Closed’ sign and we had to add an extra 100km. Lucky for that early start! Official’s headed out at 5am and the first rally car headed off about an hour later. I’m sure we will all make it in before midnight – maybe. Although it has been a long day/night, it has been super exciting with forestry tracks, mud and sand. Always plenty to do, see and look forward to.
Breakfast was at a local historical museum where the country hospitality shines through with all the home baked meals and slices.
Yesterday we let you know that car 122 broke an axle bearing and went to Walcha for parts. They caught up to us this morning. They too must have had an early morning as we barely had time to miss them.
Just before lunch today, C3 was heading to Dubbo looking to fix bearing issues. No doubt we will see him tonight, just a little later than most of the others.
Nic found her laptop bag which was accidentally picked up with car 307’s gear, which has been placed in a safe place, all together, until the guys are ready for it. Good news on that front. All are doing well and one was even discharged early this morning.
Tonight we are back at Kallarra (Tilpa), where we were a few years ago. Some of you may remember C9 famously driving into a big hole and where Roo Arcus performed for us. Well, guess what…? Roo is joining us tonight and will be coming along for the rest of the trip to Perth. I’m excited!
RB is weather watching. There is an enormous amount of water around these parts and it is quite green. Oh well, that’s the way it works. All’s good. In fact, all is Super…
Once again, we have put a selection of pics of a few of the cars. These are just happy snaps we take as we buzz about doing our RB duties during the day. Quantity and variety of pics depends on how our day unfolds.
