Bush-bashers reunite

DUST went flying, tyres were sent spinning and cars were covered in dirt as 100 people bush-bashed their way from Warwick to Stanthorpe and back on Saturday.

The cause - the Endeavour Rally reunion.

Endeavour Rally road boss Jamie Lawson said the charity event had been running for 26 years.

"The big rally is held in July every year," he said.

"We have a reunion to get back together and prepare for the race in July.

"It is also a chance for the new entrants to get a feel for it."

With plenty of hidden bush tracks between Warwick and Stanthorpe Mr Lawson said it made the region the perfect location for this year's reunion rally.

"We normally get a lot of entrants from Warwick so we thought this would be a good way to give back to the Warwick community," he said.

"We are doing a loop through the bush, round Stanthorpe and back, taking the abnormal sort of way around in typical Endeavour Rally fashion.

"We will finish up at Leslie Dam."

Greg Sproule from Gatton, Tim Bridges from Toowoomba and John Boyd from the Sunshine Coast, who were driving a bright yellow Rolls Royce, were newcomers to the Endeavour Rally event.

Mr Sproule said he had been rally driving for many years.

"I've done a lot of club level rally driving," he said.

"This will be our first Endeavour one.

"We were sitting around a table talking and each of us said we had always wanted to do the Endeavour Rally.

"So we thought we would give it a go.

"It is a good charity, raising money for Aussie disabled.

"It is a great cause."

The group's Rolls Royce attracted a lot of attention on Saturday.

"You don't see a lot of Rolls Royces doing these types of things," Mr Sproule said.
