Warwick pair bogged in rally
GETTING bogged was all in a day's fun for Warwick drivers Jamie Walters and David Burns, who are nearing the finish of the Great Endeavour Rally.
The pair is sharing the driving of a Falcon Ute, which Walters said was much quicker than the old-model LandCruiser they drove last year.
“One day we got bogged and had to get pulled out by the recovery car,” Walters said.
“Getting bogged cost us one and a half hours in time.”
They have been followed on the rally from Burleigh to Bargara by a back-up car of Warwick trio Justin Bland, Justin Rigney and Peter Doyle.
Walters said the back-up car boys were helping with volunteer jobs on the rally and with some mechanical work on the Warwick car.
The rally drivers arrived at Rainbow Beach yesterday and have a 340km route on bush roads to Woodgate tomorrow, the last point's day of the rally.
Late yesterday, Walters was confident of a top-20 finish.
A Clifton team is in the rally and three Allora women in the cruise. Tomorrow, all 67 rally cars, 12 cruise vehicles and back-up vehicles drive from Woodgate to Bargara for the rally finish.
