    Thought I would share our weekend with you all here..
    Our weekend was filled with excitement as we took Eva up there to race ...
    A big ask considering she has only been registered a few days, not run in, & we are trying to get used to her.
    But saying that, we had a awesome weekend...not without a few dramas ...2 fanbelts & a fuel leak

    We made it onto YouTube ...Joel found this & my son showed us tonight

    Thanks Judy for the photos. it looks like you had a great time. I bet Mick was smiling from ear to ear when he lined up with Eva.

    It looks like it would have been a great weekend, especially to have been out there the whole time. (apart from the flies!)

    Bel, Mick, Mel and myself spontaneously decided late on Sunday morning to make the drive out to Warwick to see what was going on. We now know the trick is to be there much earlier than around midday when we arrived! Still, we got to witness the finals of the bracket racing, as well as the burnout display and the trophy presentation.

    Craig and his team from VWMA, the Warwick Drag Association (plus the event sponsors) looked as though they put together a brilliant weekend of VW drag racing. What a shame that it coincides with the Old Bar Beach Festival, 'cause for anyone that has a love of Volkswagens as well as drag racing (oh, and a bit of Show n Shine), then this would be right up your alley. I think this has got Mick toying with the idea of something for next year. Well, at least that what I thought I heard him mutter...

    Unfortunately with the combination of us arriving late and me messing around with my camera settings, I only snapped a handful of pics. Here they are a few of the best:

    Yeah Judy, Eva looked beautiful when I saw her in Byron.
    I can't wait to see the splitty and the oval side by side one day!
