Career Highlights

  Built and prepared race and rally cars professionally for other. Now it's MY turn!
Time in Sport   since I was an apprentice motor mechanic in 1968
Claim to Fame   not going fast despite my best efforts. As an 8 year old I lay on the grass next to the straight of the Longford Flying Mile watching the F1 cars of the era
Other Interests   Looong walks around the world, war history, vegetable gardening, indigenous issues
Team Name   Team Harky
Team Members   Barbara, love of my life and pit crew for 40+ years, Des and Denise, motor sport competitors for 40+ years
Team History   Went for a look in 2007 (washed out) and have come back with a bike every year since, including the exclusive washed and locked in beach party.
Best thing about Dry Lakes Racing   The comrarderie, the very different requirements of land speed, last bastion of the back yard innovator
Interesting story   We were benighted on a tiny patch of ground trying to leave the lake in a storm. How quickly 25mm of rain changes the conditions
