Follow other Renaults for a drive through rural Sydney to the final destination which has changed!!!
As the weather has not been kind the last few days, we have decided toslightly change the destination for the Saturday drive.
We will now end up at the pub in St Albans instead of Spencer. This will allow us to sit inside and near the fire, should the weather not improve by Saturday.
Note to all: the road to St Albans is now fully sealed, a great drive in any Renault.
See you all on Saturday

It is with a very heavy heart that the decision has been made to cancel Wings Over Illawarra 2015.
The record breaking rain during April has made the airport grounds extremely water logged. We did think that if the rain could ease off during this last week we would be able to relocate most of the exhibits and stalls to higher ground. Last night we received another 25mls of rain. This has meant that the airfield is now totally unusable, unsafe and in no state to be able to have general public access safely.
Thank you all in advance for your understanding
Mark and Kerry Bright
Wings Over Illawarra

Another great Weekend in the dust. The event ran very smoothly
The year the weather was mild but day got rather dusty as things progressed. There were 27 competitors, 6 tests x 2 runs each with the events starting at 10 amand finishing at 1 pm. All over in 3 hours!
Mons. Andrew Collier won by 0.01 secs from Aaron W. It was an extremely close event with four former Aust Motorkhana champs competing this year. Not mentioning state and class champs as well.
