Race Report - Darwin Triple Crown
The annual trip to the top end is one of the most anticipated events on the Supercar calendar, and this anticipation is mainly centred around the drivers. When I say “drivers” I am referring to the truck drivers not the race car drivers.
Any “truckie” worth his or her salt relishes a near 4,000km adventure that takes them from the south to the north across one of the most diverse landscapes in the world. Joey (Joe Sullivan – GRM transporter driver) has completed every one of these trips since the inaugural event back in 1998. Joe just loves this trip and is so proud of his Volvo FH16 700hp truck, b-double trailers and precious cargo. He always likes to leave on the Friday evening the week before the event so as he has time up his sleeve in case of any mishaps, but also so he can spend time with interested onlookers at truck stops along his journey. Joey is a tremendous ambassador for both GRM and Supercars. Thank you, Joey!
