Finns Fudge Fundraiser

Racing for me started with going to watch at the old Kaiapoi track as a child then progressed to pit crewing for different drivers in 6&8's Steve and Ivan Hill, Paul Wheelers and thats when I met Dave Frew who pit crewed on Doug Smith's chevy monza the "outlaw". So I got to crew too. Then Doug gave me the job of painting the tyres around the infield. Every week I would ride my bike over to the track to do this.
Then I got a license, so then it was track prep. I used to get to drive the water truck when Grant Hobson and Peter Fete (CocaCola man) were laying it but I always wanted a race car. So as soon as I was 16 I built my first AP5 Valiant from there to an AP6. I always remember my old AP5. I won my first race and rolled my first time all in the same race and they got a photo of it.
Then with all the spare parts left over built a PA Vauxhall all in between pit crewing for Bill Oliver.
Then was about the time I built Gary Watson his first race car. From there I built a VG Valiant to have ago at Hemi power, that was a good car.
Then we bought the B Grade Saloon a Victor. Raced that for a season and got my first sash (3rd place Canty champ).
We had a wee break from race cars for a while. Built a couple of cars for people. Pit crewed a bit till we built the mk3 Cortina six cylinder, that Jackie Oliver run very successfully for me winning nearly everything there was to win. This was a very big highlight in my racing career and a very special friend ship was formed.
Had a few more years off. Wife had the twins but the itch came back. Swapped the jet boat for the Mustang we have today with a lot of input from Stephen Crowe REC performance and Mark Pausey and North Canty Engine Reconditioners and heaps of other advice from others.
This car has become a very reliable competitive racing car.
We have over the winter purchased a new 406 Chevy Monaro which we are currently trying ... so may be Supers next year.
