Brothers to square off

SIBLING rivalry will take on a whole new dimension tonight at the Killarney Show when brothers Luke and Jason Green square off in the Smash-Up Derby.

There are probably less painful and costly ways to settle disagreements, and when the Daily News caught up with the brothers yesterday, they said they would pull no punches.

“I’m definitely not going to avoid him,” Jason said with a big grin.

Luke, 22, is going to line up in an EA Falcon wagon which was donated to the Killarney Auto Enthusiasts by mechanic Paul Fox, who owns Killarney Auto Works.

However despite Fox, who will enter the competition in a 1970 Mercedes-Benz 250, predicting that Luke will take line honours over his brother, Jason is sure he has the better vehicle.

Jason will be competing in a 1984 XE Falcon, which he is confident will be more reliable.

“I have a more reliable motor – (Luke’s) is fuel injected, mine just runs on a carburettor,” he said.

Jason picked up the Falcon for the princely sum of $120, and said it just had to last until the end of the night.

This is the debut for both brothers, and they said they had no intention of entering other derbies.

Neither was nervous, saying they were looking forward to the encounter.

Fox is also the organiser of the derby, and said yesterday he was expecting about 10 cars to take part.
