The final stretch

08 Jun The final stretch

We could see the clock ticking nearer to the 100 hours target that we had set ourselves and knew that it was becoming more and more unreachable. The final straw was when the Head on the engine block came loose again and affected the fuel consumption. The Tudor Rose came to a halt just outside of Warren.

It was SupaK to the rescue as the team searched for a service station open at 4am to fill a couple of jerry cans. Thank goodness for the Coles Express service station at Gilgandra which was opened and had one last large jerry can for sale!

By the time Tudor Rose got back on the road, we knew we couldn’t make 100 hours – but we were still going to set the best time possible…and family and friends were waiting at the Gold Coast for us.
