Do you want another race report? Of course you don't, so you'll get it anyway. The Six Banger Nats held at Warwick, Queensland, Australia is an event that many look forward to every year. It's one of those events that gets put on the calendar as soon as you get home from the previous one. The road trip to get there including the trials and tribulations, the camaraderie of the mates you only catch up with each year and the sound of six cylinders screaming their lungs out and not competing with the roar of V8s (and no bloody rotary engines). I took a couple of extra days off work to get stuff ready and to travel the 800klms (about 500 miles) to Warwick. Lucky I did. I took the racecar out of the enclosed trailer to pack our bedding and supplies and thought one of the trailer wheels was sitting at a weird angle. Took the wheel off and found scuff marks on the spring pack retainer. I was going to just grind a bit off the retainer for clearance but I thought to myself, 'self, that can't be right'. On further investigation I found a broken spring pack centre bolt and after a hurried trip to the local trailer bits shop I had another centre bolt in place and we were right to go. Don't you love it when a casual afternoon becomes a hurried scramble to get finished? Next day the Crew Chief and I leapt out of bed at 4.00am ( well, I leapt out, she wasn't so keen), threw down some cereal and we were off. Now, I think I posted in my last race report how if you want to break a drought just plan a Drag race meeting. We drove for 8 1/2 hours of which 6 was in pouring rain. What can you say? The land needs it, the farmers need it, but you wish it was some other time. We arrived mid afternoon Friday to local thunderstorms. Great, the roof of our trailer leaked so off to the local hardware for a large tarp. Rain continued through the night and the next morning we were greeted with this sight.
