2006 National Bus Roadeo

By KandyA 25 October 2006 26

from a whole of ACT Govt post – I cant believe Riotact missed this event, I want Wayne on my bus!

Congratulations to ACTION Bus Driver Wayne Farley…

The 2006 National Bus Rodeo Winner!!!

The 2006 National Bus Roadeo was hosted by ACTION on Sunday at the Transport Industries Skills Centre. The Roadeo is a competition of driving skill and accuracy. Bus operators came from across Australia and New Zealand to compete. Bus roadeos have been conducted in the USA and Canada for many years, with Australia’s first national bus rodeo commencing in 1991. This is the second time ACTION has hosted the event, previously hosting it in 1997.

The course included obstacles which drivers must avoid and steel plates on the pavement which must be touched by the bus wheels. Competitors were given two attempts at the course, with penalty points being accrued if obstacles are touched or if any of the steel plates are not touched.

Wayne competed against 17 other entrants from around Australia and New Zealand to take the winning prize. Well done, Wayne!!!!!

UPDATED: Bighead has sent in a picture from the Busman’s Ball which followed the Roadeo and featured ACTION’s new ticket inspector (HAW HAW HAW)

oh you love it still, admit it snahon.

yep okay… it was just the guy from all creatures great and small – he wasn’t a doctor who. I think I must have made some strange association between the two when I was kid. DAMN.

that doesn’t sound right. i have probably gotten myself all confused (that happens a lot)

Dunno what is scarier – they cost more to make than the value of your car or that you evidently know quite alot about something I can recall watching before my age reached double digits. 🙂

While the BBC apparently does not recommend fans build their own Daleks, it doesn’t mind endorsing those made by http://www.thisplanetearth.co.uk (I’d do one of those fancy link things if I knew how, maybe JB will help me out here). There are also some rather tantalising photos of owners INSIDE their Daleks – think of the fun you could have down at the local shops with that. I’d just like to point out that a standard Dalek costs more than I paid for my car. Just saying.
