It’s all Tanya’s fault, she said, ‘Want to come on a Bash?’ and I said, ‘OK.’ I knew about it – my hus­band had been on a four­wheel-drive one, so I said, ‘Build me a Bash car’. We own a workshop, LM Mo­tors, so he did. It’s got power steer­ing, air­con­di­tion­ing, and a socket for our hairdryer! It’s all a real learn­ing curve for us. It’s been huge. This is def­i­nitely not a race. We’ve done the school runs so we’re very qual­i­fied for the traf­fic! Our en­try has re­ally been pow­ered off the back of sausages. We’ve been sell­ing them at La­bel Traders mar­ket. It’s been a year to the day since we started. You have to raise money for fuel, in­sur­ance and rego, and there are food levies. Our workshop funded the cost of the car. It’s been so much hard work, so once we get go­ing it’ll be so nice, it’ll be easy.”
