I just heard from my mum, that my little brother (who is actually 6.3ft) won the Fenacle festival side car races in Karratha on the weekend!
It is a huge deal, most of the Pilbara goes to this. I have no idea what category he raced in, but he is psyched!!
For those that dn't know what Fenacle is, I will explain: Karratha, Roebourne, Dampier etc has a big festival every year, like a mini royal show, which is free to attend, but you pay to use the rides etc, over the same weekend they hold the Fenacle races at the speedway and the Jet boats, and racers from across the Pilbara and some state people attend.
Fenacle got it's name from three companies that sponsor the event; Hamersley Iron, Dampier Salt and Woodside LNG and the proper name for the event is Fe (Iron) NACL (Salt) LNG (LNG) (shortened to Fenacle).
