Eldorado CC Roadtrip to MotorEx 2012 – Thursday

Where do I even start?? For me, this was the first time i had ever been on such a trip. I have done plenty of long missions when I rode BMX but this was something else, something new and very unique. A convoy of nearly 10 cars Rompt the Hume Hwy from Melbourne, through Albury, and on-wards to Sydney for 5 days of good times, and good times we had. Palms till close anyone?

My “role” on this trip was to document as much as i could, fingers crossed I have done it thoroughly enough!

A special thanks goes out to the Eldorado CC for inviting me along and organising everything. A huge thanks to the Gilbert brothers and the Poncho for the lift, El Toro for a being a dirty genius travel partner, and to everyone who came along and made me feel welcome.

Photographers Note: I think I have missed a lot of opportunities along the way, and some photos may appear very similar to others. Culling photos is difficult, especially when the guys want to see photos of their cars fanging along the highway. My kit consists of ONLY a 50mm and a 135mm lens which made it very difficult for “rolling” shots of the cars, but i think i captured enough to bring the Roadtrip to life through imagery.

I’ll let the photos till you the story. Enjoy.

not the best photo, but a memorable one for me. We heard Egans 49 beast screaming up behind us. Best!!
