Howard McCormick once again took on the long-distance challenge. Leaving Perth in his Mk2 Sapphire, he first travelled to Rockhampton in Queensland before turning right and travelling South to Wagga Wagga. This incredible tour of just over 6,000 kilometers easily eclipsed his previous two efforts by some 3,000 kilometers, setting a new distance record that has still has not been (and is unlikely to be) beaten. Howards hat-trick of Longest Distance Travelled to the Event awards is an outstanding achievement.
