Muddy madness at Boomi
Boomi Mud Trial Committee member Peter Vukovich Snr said the day was great all round.
About 400 people lined the grandstand and fences to watch the standards, buggies and modifieds churn, power and occasionally tow their way through the mud.
Mark Stein from Ashley won the standard drags class behind the wheel of his car ‘Spongebob’ while Luke Dair from Eton, QLD was successful in the buggie drags class driving his way to victory in ‘Mud Doctor’.
A tough track left many competitors on the end of a tow line, and the track was changed to eliminate the front mud hole for the second half of the modified as it had become impassable.
But a tough track and a bit of rain did not dampen the spirits of the competitors, who had travelled from as far as Mackay, Emerald and Newcastle to test out the track.
