The NT Guv'ment puts a fair bit of $$$ into motorsports up there ranging from bankrolling the V8's, Aussie Superbikes, Drags and of course the Sprintcar Title a few years ago.

Then again they put a lot of money into a lot of things to try to get people to stay up there ;)

I will head out for a look.



I'll be up to Cairns for that one LG! Should be a heck of a meeting...

Although I'm catching a plane up instead of traveling up in the truck with the Macdonald Racing guys, a bit soft I know

Well I'm not sure what everyone else has been up to, but it has been an excellent season so far here in Sunny QLD!

I started off at Maryborough for the QLD Modified Production Title... A bloody Victorian (Mark Carlin) took that one home with them, and there was plenty of Chaos and Hard Racing as usual...

15th Sept - Shelford Crunches the Fence
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0dva6BUkhI

Next weekend I headed home, and the Modified Production guys turned it on for the second week in a row, with the Big Black XF Falcon of Fletcher finally cracked it for a win on a slick and difficult track! But a couple of 4 Cylinder Sedans went for some really wild rides with a Datsun and a Corolla putting on an aerial show for the crowd!...

21st Sept - Massive Datsun 4 Cylinder Sedan Rollover
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB37wRVJmag

21st Sept - Massive Corolla 4 Cylinder Sedan Rollover

The weekend after that, I ventured to the Peanut Bowl at Kingaroy, where the local street sedan guys had plenty of cheering and jeering at the bar during a controversial final for the QLD Title! Josh Arthur took out the 12/13 Title finishing the race with no panard bar left in the car...

30th Sept - QLD Street Sedan Title A-Main
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_E2hD5Rg2zg

Then Bathurst weekend, I had to make a quick trip to Rockhampton (7hours there and 7hours back) on the Saturday for the opening round of the QLD Super Sedan Series... Darren Kane walloped the field in the feature, but the racing for the minor placing lead to an exciting race declaration!

6th Oct - QLD Super Sedan Series Feature Race Pile Up
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHX4E5NsMF0

The next weekend proved to be a nice easy club show, with Monster Trucks and Fireworks for the kids, however Jason Beer still managed to heat things up a little when the #C0 Cortina nearly ended up a Methanol BBQ

13th Oct - Jason Beer Fire
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LR8XDwR5_Xg

The next weekend, I ventured down to Gatton, where someone just had to test out the new concrete fence... A Formula 500 showed the fence was certainly up to its Job.

20th Oct - Formula 500 Rollover
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uojPOPiimLM

After that, I need to be in 2 places at once the next weekend, with the help of a new camera guy we had it sorted, and I got to witness one of the BEST Races I had seen in a long time! Doyle, Baxter and Raymont, all pushing the limit of what you can do in a modified production, swapping paint and positions!

27th Oct - ONE OF THE BEST MODIFIED PRODUCTION RACE EVER
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8m24IObSPHU

And at Charlton, a yank stole the show and the winners cheque and took it back to the states in an awesome outside lane pass on the last lap during Round 02 of the Speedcar Super Series!

27th Oct - Speedcar Super Series A-Main
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0C3dye3iMY

The week after, Darren white tried to go through the fence at Kingaroy (He didn't succeed), and the fans were treated to an epic feature race, even with Doyle and Raymont unable to start the feature, Fletcher, Lorensen, Shallcross, Worling and Baxter put on the best of the best 2 wide racing!

3rd Nov - Darren White Huge Crash
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5giANF9UXE

3rd Nov - Modified Production Allstars Series A-Main
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXWSEbhxcok

Then we suffered 2 weeks of Rain in a row, which meant 2 weeks off the filming for me...

Before we headed west, to Roma, where the Country Speedway with the Country Tyre Wall may have caught a few out! 3 Massive Rollovers Happened

24th Nov - Robert Trapp Rollover
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkYfglGwl8w

24th Nov - Jeff Smith Rollover
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMuk1wo4m3I

24th Nov - Neil Keldoulis Rollover
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2z-7K5nUpUU

December hit, and the Kings with Wings hit town, and on a slick track put of some great racing... It also caught a few out!

1st Dec - Peter Lack Rollover
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRt2T4OfW9I

Then the big boys rolled into town, the QLD leg of the National Super Sedan Series... 4 Nights of Racing over 8 days... The first 2 at Charlton. They certainly turned on the action, although the Modified Production boys certainly tried to steal the show! Racing for almost no money, they still thought it was for sheep stations!

8th Dec - Super Sedan National Series A-Main
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_RsVoxGkGs

8th Dec - Modified Production Crash
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTVAVat-TEw

8th Dec - Massive Junior Sedan Rollover (Scared the crap out of me!)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wK-ZQRhUmOE

Then another big weekend, Gympie and Kingaroy... Kane Showed why he was the master, driving from 5th to the win at Gympie after fracturing his wrist in the first lap! and Kingaroy showed why it was the place to watch speedway with a Fireball, and the closest finish in NSSS History!

14th Dec - Darren Kane's Super Star Effort!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FF1y-Ex8muU

14th Dec - Modified Production Guys Can't Help Themselves... Doyle's Massive Crash
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_mhEJQWe8I

15th Dec - Closest and Most Exciting Super Sedan Finish Ive Ever Seen
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dbzm71ylxE

15th Dec - Biggest Fire I've Ever Seen in person, You could feel the heat where I was filming on the infield!

So what have you guys been up to!

Hahaha, it's been a busy season so far!

Mackay for the Junior Sedan Title,

Still a bit of driving ahead of me!
