Toowoomba is no longer done by showmen (hasn't been for a couple of years), it is done by KayDee Promotions and they bring in a few rides from a couple of other local Brisbane operators.

im going to watch the V8 Sprintcars and other programs, Sprintcars are so awesome.. thats my favourite car program... :)

im going this weekend on Saturday and maybe next Saturdays meeting one, but that i wont know till mid week through next week..

i may go to the carnival but yeah dont know if ill have time cause i have to leave on sunday before 1pm cause the drive is about 2 and half hours back home...
because i have to start work at 6am on Monday, so yeah :(

i actually didnt even know that the carnival of flowers had a sideshow alley rides... thats new to me.. :)

so Josh are you at both meetings in toowoomba or just one?? ive been to a few speedways in QLD and i think so far Maryborough is the best, i have been to Toowoomba's one a few times back a few years ago, but yeah its been a long time... but yeah it will be great to see the track to see if anythings changed!!

thanks for the post PNC, looks small in rides but its only a flower carnival so i guess not much would go there, but would love to see the ride called big chair o plane, never heard of it... unless its a kiddie ride.. lol

Zamperla yes i do have different interests but thats what i like, Speedway and Shows, oneday i hope to get a part time job helping out one of the rides that travel the north run in QLD..
and the cars do cost a bit to run them if they get damaged bad in other speedway programs at other tracks, but usually its good with most drivers that own the car, i know people that drive speedway cars, mostly the super streets but yeah its great to hear them win a bit...
Every Speedway track is different in a way so its hard, but thats good, its better to have different tracks, like my speedway track here in Gympie is famous of all the corners, its shaped like a kidney, its really the only track in QLD that isnt really round. :)

Been to gympie heaps as a passenger in super streets, never raced there though.. This season...:)
Main difference is Mary is clay/granite, where as Rocky is dirt/granite, so totally different to race on...
I got au falcon, orange number 16... Headed to the Pie of the 30/30 event mid way through next month too..
