Darwin, FridayOctober 11, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C
My cough is sounding great - really loud and hacking first thing! Sorry, John, who's had me coughing most of the night.
The car needs to be back at the Convention Centre for 09.30 so various teams head for the workshop. My job is to drive all the tools back to Darwin from Hidden Valley Racetrack. Lance's team is sorting our orange flashing roof light - that gets the ok this time so the support vehicles are all good to go. The kids are on domestic duties. Then I'm back to the track and on, following Lance and Rob P, to get the 4x4’s lights repaired across Darwin. It's a fun trip when Lance takes the 'scenic' route. It's actually a minor job so when the call comes in to please take the original seatbelts down to the Convention Centre I can leave the others, return to the garage and head into Darwin for my third trip today. I have now acquired four of our kids on my travels this morning.
We get to the Convention Centre to be greeted with the great news that we have passed static scrutineering! All the issues of yesterday appear to have dissolved overnight and the car is good to go as it was originally! We reload, head straight back to the track so that Tom can do his required timed figures of 8. He's got to better 18 seconds which he does after a few runs. Yay, we are bang up to date and good for dynamic scrutineering tomorrow. And we get the rest of the day off!Read more
