The local christian youth held a billy
cart derby at Flowerdale near Wynyard. We entered our Trax2 prior to
fitting the engine. The competition was fierce but we ended up with the second fastest cart. The course was
a very steep paddock with a right hand bend near the bottom of the hill, leading up to the finish line.Top
speeds were around 60k. There was a cold dam waiting for anyone who failed to make the corner. There
were several spectacular crashes including one person who clipped the bales on the direct line to the dam.
Paul and his friend Sean shared the driving.
The monster that won the day. Finish line at far right at end of bales. Sean at the wheel.
