Jesus Ric, you must be soft. I towed the race car from Brisbane to Winton Raceway (Benalla) in 2 stints and back in one stint. I will be doing Syd and back in 2 days with my mates new sports sedan too!
Kinda flush. Fitment is something. ADM as F*ck.

The journey there is part of the experience! ;)
Three other cars, all also towing trailers, are going to be following me, so it will be a bit like a mini cruise, just for a lot further.

I've just been planning all the lunch stops, so we can stop somewhere on the Newell highway with room to park four car/trailer combos, and get something decent to eat.
That means steering clear of cities like Albury and Dubbo, but avoiding one-horse towns with nowhere to eat.

The final plan is:

Tue morning: Melbourne to to Culcairn. 329 km, 3:08
Tue afternoon: Culcairn to West Wyalong. 228 km, 2:38

Wed morning: West Wyalong to Gilgandra. 322 km, 3:27
Wed afternoon: Gilgandra to Narrabri. 214 km, 2:15

Thu morning: Narrabri to Goondiwindi. 224 km, 2:21
Thu afternoon: Goondiwindi to Toowoomba 224 km, 2:20

God no. That is travel time for each leg, not starting time. :D

Thursday is my one free night. We're staying at the Lechardt Motor Inn in Ruthven St.

At the Concours on Saturday, I'll be at a loose end once the car is parked, so from about 10am to 2pm is pretty free.
That's still at the "Heller Street Park", for all of Saturday.
I don't know when I'm running at Morgan Park on Sunday yet.

The Motorkhana on Monday is going to be held at "Wagners, Alderley Avenue, Drayton North, Toowoomba."
(I guess that will make sense when I look at the map ;) )
I do know I'm in the first group doing the Motorkhana, but then my wife has "volunteered" me to help with timing for the rest of the day.

You're wlecome to come along and look at any of the events :)

Looks like Thursday night's not going to happen for me; there's a small chance I might be bumming around the area on Sunday; will see what happens.

There was a change to the schedule I hadn't noticed. The motorkhana and sprint (Sunday and Monday) have been swapped.
i.e.
Sat: Still the Concours at Picnic Point park, from 9am to 3pm.
Sun: Motorkhana at "Wagners" in Alderley St, close to Anzac Ave.
Mon: Sprint at Morgan Park

Apparently the Chevy club are running a sprint at Morgan Park on Sunday, and they got in before the MG club.
