Bakkie is in Knysna

YO Dudes

I am in Knysna for the Speed Festival.... no it's not drug related (first question my mom asked me)

http://www.speedfestival.co.za/

anyway I am supplying two daylight screens (4m x 3m) for the event with an outside broadcast van and 5 camera's and crew.....

The hill climb events is a race up an 1,6km hill and the best time so far is about 43seconds some guys unfortunatly don't make it to the top....... and my camera crew have captured these moments

Here is the first one missing the camera man The camera manned that got the shots is standing next to me while we watch the replays afterwards.
Knysna Speed Festival Crash (0 min 20 sec)


Here is the second incident missing the camera platform by 30cm....

unfortunatly we missed some of the accident because some of the mud and stones took the camera out but fortunatly Ruan walked away from it in one piece a hero!.
Knysna Speed Festival Subaru Crash (0 min 24 sec)


you can see the driver taking evasive action not to hit the cameraman.

Hoping to be back on the slope next week

Nice one FB!

Don't you want to build a DLG travelling box out of correx for our slope tour to the Kalahari desert?
We could slope the Augrabies Falls!

Graham has promised to get my new one done to take along!

Quickly fixing the 1st one.....

DLG, She can come apart?

Sure is a bugger transporting her whole.

I were at Maitlands yesterday afternoon early.

Nice SW pumping.
