Supporting Team Rubicon with Bus Parts

Team Rubicon is a local charity organisation built around the concept of enlisting our veterans in organised disaster relief efforts.

Busabout generously donated three older buses, now proudly renamed Faith, Hope and Charity, and other companies were approached to help with the refurbishments.

Round 5 Review

Round 5 of the 2019 Touring Car Masters series was run last weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park, formally known as Eastern Creek, as part of the Sydney Master Blast and Muscle Car Masters.

Round 4 review – Queensland Raceway

Round 4 of the 2019 Paynter Dixon Touring Car Masters series was run recently at Queensland Raceway and the field was as competitive as it’s ever been and straight out of the gate on Friday morning faster and closer than ever before.

Ryan was feeling good in the Multispares Torana and was 2nd quickest with a time that was nearly 1 second faster than his 2017 qualifying time and like in practice a few weeks earlier .6 sec faster than he had ever been around the “paperclip”.

By qualifying which was a few hours later it was obvious that the bar in …

“It took me around 3 weeks to get to the doctor as I didn’t think much of it at the time. …
