Car Entries

These are the numbers given to each car that we got photo’s of whilst in Darwin.

Cannonball Plate

These plates were given to every car entry as a way of identifying each car. They were and still are legal on Australian roads.

The plates were provided by the Northern Territory Government.

The plates made by prison inmates at the Department of Corrections in Alice Springs.

Leaving Sydney

All packed and ready to race. This rig is leaving from Sydney, bound for Darwin to start the big race. What a site this would have been if you didn’t know the great race was on.
