Crazy Crazy week BUT – all systems are GO for Targa Tasmania 2015 the “longest & most dangerous tarmac rally” … In the world … And SWDA & I are about to Steam out of Brisbane to Kiss the Start Line >>>>
!!!!! BOOYAA !!!!!
Well I don’t know where to start but the word crazy kind of sums it up ????
To think that after one year and a half , all of the work , the training , the coaching and every waking moment has been focused toward making the start line of the Targa Tasmania 2015 , And it’s only days away !!!!
I arrived home from overseas last Thursday night and had surgery at 7 o’clock Friday morning which sadly became a cause for concern with an infection spreading at the surgical site .. OUCH !!! I was thinking what IF ? We couldn’t go because I was in hospital or stuck in bed with a world of hurt , just thinking about it ? All that has gone into this the journey to get here and ?? NOT be able to go ?
Well it’s was more than a koala could bear . Luckily a week of antibiotics and I was very happy last night when the fevers broke. The week has been difficult getting everything ready from bed and bathroom , but we will make the start or die trying .. Small laugh out loud :-))
The Targa : For us it’s a matter of survival …. it’s a bit like climbing Mount Everest ?? it’s not who gets their first , it’s just who gets there …. and we will keep this in mind every single km , of which there are over 2000 Targa RACE kilometres and 2000km rally stages – over 4000 km to be driven over the next seven days spanning the island of Tasmania !!
With God on our side , and some good luck , determination and well wishes , we WILL cross the finish line , perhaps setting the slowest time for a targa entry but ?? with the rate of attrition so , so HIGH , and over 250 cars it’s possible we could make a good position just getting to the Finish Line ,, YEAH !!
———- That’s our Metric of Success ———-
Thank you to everyone who has followed our Journey , looking forward to sharing many stories and good times :-))
Surely it hasn’t been the best week for preparations (FAR FROM IT) but none of that will matter , nor will the place that we will get in the field , just being there ?? we will feel like winners and I hope everyone can share in our appreciation & excitement !!
Gods Speed and THANK YOU !!!!
