My brother Scott and I headed up the Cardrona Valley to see the Queenstown Gold Rush hill climb. Monster Tajima (Suzuki Vitara) ended up winning, followed by Rod Millen (Toyota Celica) and Possum Bourne (Subaru Impreze WRX).
There is a steep climb to the top of the hill
Rod Millens awesome looking Toyota Celica
Possum Bourne heading back down the hill. This is the exact spot where he died five years later. RIP Possum.
Rod Millen at full speed on the fastest section of the track.
This car was dropped from a helicopter. It shook the hell out of the ground when it landed! Apparently it was shot as part of a movie, I'm not sure what movie it was though. If you know what movie it was used in please let me know in the comments thanks 😀
Thanks to my other cousin Catherine Hellyer for taking the photos for me 😀

I now wear contacts most of the time.
Dang nabbit this hurt! Andrew Wiffen and I had a miscommunication during a baseball game and we collided. Unfortunately he put his elbow up to protect himself and took out my eye in the process! Mum decided it wasn’t painful enough already and tortured me further by taking photos of it.
