For those of you who know my Family personally, you will know that while animals and photography are my passion the Husbands passion is his cars – fast cars – very fast cars!

He does not get to race often as we live a good 3 hour drive away from the closest track, so when he does it is an all in Family affair – Ash & Aimilee get to play ‘pit crew’ and I get to be the official team photographer (and general dogs body with jobs like – run as fast as you can back to the pits to get the missing memory card from the cars computer!)

I will get you started with a few of the other cars racing…

Then it was our turn….

Unfortunately the car before had dropped oil on the track so we had a 20 minute wait while the track was cleaned – there was a cool stunt rider to keep the kids entertained

Then it was all systems go!

Annnnd then it was back to the pits to find out where our oil leak was coming from :(

While the boys were problem solving the kids and I watched a few more cars

With our car all sorted and ready to go (and I kid you not when I saw the problem was solved with a Huggies Nappy!!) I was lucky enough to be taken by one of the officials down onto the start line..now it was time for RACING!

The car ran well and we were back in the line up for another run (there is a fair bit of waiting around when you are drag racing)

Another successful pass, a happy Husband, two very wired-tired kids and it was time to pack up and head home.

I’m not sure when we will get to go racing again, but when we do we will all have a great time! Thanks Sydney Dragway for a great night out.
