It was a cracker of a day and we saw some killer skids, we even had a couple of small fires to start the year off.  The show ran smoothly all night and, for the first time in a while, we finished just before the curfew of 10pm.  Thank you to everyone who travelled from Townsville and the Tablelands, and everywhere in between.  Thank you also to the local boys who come out each and every comp.

Tony Anderson (Ando) took home the Scotty Joseph Memorial Trophy for best skid of the night in his methanol drinking animal of a 250ci Ford ute!!  …
