Spotlight: Kerri Mareeba and PERFK at Superlap 2012, Round 1

JD and I turned up in Feilding to go to Palmerston North Swap Meet 2012. Part way through wandering the main hall, I flipped open my phone to check Facebook as JD was hunting through a box of old shit.
A new photo had been uploaded by Kerri.
The photo showed a wing mirror snapped off some car... The colour of the car was gliterry pink....
Oh NOES - PERF has been in a smash.
We promptly left the show hall and made our way to the pit garage. (via a quick pitstop for lunch at KFC... we hungry)

Luckily nobody had been hurt, and PERFK was still running. Bit of broken glass here and there and some dents in the door and guard. Jamie managed to bash out a bunch of the dents with his superior panelbeating skills (which he only discovered he had on the day).

Luckily Kerri wasn't thrown off by this at all, and jumped straight back on the horse that bucked her off.

And managed to smash her own PB and laid out a 1:20.5. AWH SHIT YEH.

Here's some pics of the damage, and some other random shots of the day.

Hand signs and rotary drivers go together like bread and sausage. Mad Mike has obviously given her some coaching on best hand signal techniques.
