Behind The Scenes: Ipswich 2018

Our annual home race always provides pride and joy, particularly for our family members who witness what we actually get up to at work and for the workshop staff who can see their hard work come to fruition. Here’s all the fun from Queensland Raceway in photos…

We were running short on crew keen to work out at the dead end of the Earth, which explains the young fella in the green shorts.


Dutto to J-Dub: “We have a ride day so we are here until Tuesday afternoon.”

J-Dub’s entourage: 1 x burly security guard, 1 x shoe cleaner, 1 x brolly dolly.


Home races… The good: Sleeping in your own bed. The bad: Wondering whether you’ve turned the iron off and fed the cat, as you line up on the grid.

Old mate’s still got it. 


Thirsty work… SVG was still thirsty after this podium celebration…
