I’ve done 16 Bashes. My first was in 1998, Reef to Reef, then I missed one, then I think I’ve done ev­ery one since. There were orig­i­nally three Steves. We built both cars but since then one Steve moved to Ing­ham and built a Bash car with mates up there. We still tag along to­gether on the Bash. We’ve had two EH Hold­ens. The first one we bought as a Bash car but it just rusted away, so we found an­other one. This will be its ninth. It’s got power steer­ing and air­con­di­tion­ing. Some­times we do a mini Bash just to give it a run. It’s good fun and you work, and the money you raise is go­ing to a very good cause and you see it first hand. You see fel­las you think could take on a brown bear and they’re sob­bing in a corner. Some of the things you see, it re­ally gets you right here.”
