Mar 5, 2017 - Vineyard

We dropped the dogs off at kennels just after 8am and were at Eastern Creek Raceway by 9am in plenty of time for the first kart race. Our friend Chrys was racing in the first race, and though the track was dry, he lost his chain on the last lap and was a DNF. He did better in the second race, but because it was run on a very wet track, he took his time and finished 5th. There were quite a few different types of car races in between the kart races, and as you can almost see the whole track from the roof above pit lane, it made for an...

I drove Ian to Eastern Creek raceway first thing for him to spend the day with his kart buddies from Brisbane who were here competing in a round of the Shannon Nationals.

After lunch I drove...

On our way there, the heavens opened and it absolutely poured rain. Thank goodness for sat. nav. is all I can say, because it made it much easier to find where we were going in quite...

Mar 2, 2017 - Blackheath to Vineyard

The sun was actually shining when we got up this morning, though there was still a lot of heavy cloud to be seen. We were able to pack up before it rained, and even made it almost all the way down the mountain without it being too wet. The drive down the mountain is really incredibly scenic and was in the main a gradual decline. However, we had a couple of quite sharp and steep hairpin bends on the section between Springwood where we turned off the main highway, and Richmond. Thankfully, they were much easier to negotiate going downhill...
