Show '09 will come to a crashing end

SUNDAY afternoon will see the 2009 Coffs Harbour Show end with a real smash hit as the demolition derby rounds off this year's event.

Coffs Harbour resident Dylan Berglund is the first 'local' to throw out the challenge to the growing list of demolition derby entrants from other towns.

Dylan, an employee of Raleigh Auto Dismantlers, found himself in the firm's entrant when the original driver became unavailable to take his seat this Sunday. Dylan said he was looking forward to his first demolition derby

“The boss has provided a reliable well constructed car and offered his knowledge as a former entrant,” Dylan said.

“I'm not really sure what to expect as I have never gone out before with the intention of wrecking a motor vehicle by smashing it to pieces.

“Normally I wreck them by pulling off all the good bits for the boss to sell.”

Dylan is hoping more locals will enter to counter the 'out of towners' who usually come from the Kempsey and Nambucca regions following warm-ups at their own local shows.

Entry forms are available at the Show Office on the showground. Entry closing time is noon Sunday when all cars must be on the ground for safety checks.
