Boats arrive for Thunder

SPEED machines from across Australia touched down at Sandy Hook last night, in preparation for this weekend’s 10th Wide Bay Australia Bundy Thunder.

Event coordinator Sue Ellen Pitt said the stage was set for the biggest Bundy Thunder yet.

“We are ready and raring to go; everything is set,” she said.

Fans will get the perfect chance to witness the calm before the storm, when boats and their drivers gather at Brothers Sports Club tomorrow at 5pm for the welcome party.

Two days of frenetic racing will follow, with 36 races scheduled each day to satisfy the hunger of the record 84 entrants and the crowd.

Amid the frenzy on the water, there is plenty to do to stay amused on dry land.

Entertainment will include candle making, the Sumo Tube and laser skirmish for the kids, while you could win an AC/DC signed guitar in the Thunderstruck raffle.

ThunderCat 1770 will provide some lunchtime entertainment with rearing, leaping and darting high-speed tricks.

Entry is $20 on the gate, while children under 12 are free.
