    Kennys Bucket list is being looked after, he is going out a a passenger in the Team Cambridge Monaro.
    He first saw it in 1969, and now is going around Taupo in it 2019.
    Thats what a bucket list is.
    We wont discuss here the bucket not being attended to last year
    Oh, yes, the driver comes from another Bucket............

    I have invited about 16 friends and family and if they all show up along with MY Team can I get a discount on the price of my admission ?
    I just hope my bus can make it to the airport on time.

    We have 24 cars for HMC and HSC, Bruce can put up the list but we have some pretty cool cars coming. Several of our races will be split grid between HMC and HSC along with the fastest half and slowest half, its always good trial different ideas and this event allows for that. Along with our past Legends the HMC/HSC camp will be selling T-Shirts, Calendars and other items. Looking forward to a FUN weekend.

    Maybe a late entry. Apache has engine issues after the last meeting and Nigel is trying to have the “Dawson” Mustang there but has a bit of work to do.

    Bruce a great line-up.

    This car " Neville “Hillsy” Hills, #483 1975 Escort Mk2 RS2000 Ex Biddle/Moon " I presume the Moon is Barry Moon - upholsterer [ retired ] and former Austin Healey owner and racer, after the Escort !! .. ??

    Hi Roger,

    Yes a good line up and we are very pleased with the commitment by the guys and girls getting in behind this event.

    Yes it is Barry Moon’s old car.

    We're still missing a few HMC cars which should have made the effort but it is what it is and we'll have a bunch of fun anyway which to me is most important. After 7 years of helping Tony, Chris and Jim run the Festivals at Hampton and bringing the Aussie ATA guys over four times(never easy) im looking forward to a more relaxed low key event like this.
