WMPS5 Killarney

Undoubtedly the focus of the world was on the dramatic Thailand Tham Luang Cave rescue of the Wild Boar soccer team and their coach and though a diver sadly lost his life the efforts of everyone under the guidance of Australian SAAS Med STAR anaesthetist, Richard “Harry” Harris, deservedly received applause from across the globe.

A Darling victory for Peiser!

John and Weston Peiser (father and son) drove the rally of their career to win the first CPMCC Darling Rally in their Speed Pro Cycling Equipment 425 WPMC S5 Subaru Impreza GT 2.0 Turbo 4x4.
