THE Kyogle Border Ranges Rally has a new sponsor which is what the news item on the back page is about in this week's Express Examiner.

It got me remembering back to last year when I had the privilege of riding in one of the cars with rally driver Jack Monkhouse.

It's the first time I've been in a rally car and talk about feeling like a sardine in a can.

You are strapped in tighter than a big tummy in a girdle in one of those cars.

They must have loved my reaction to the drive as I found it was included in their promotional video which can be viewed here.

I'm the one in the passenger seat with the big grin.

It seems to be all about vehicles that move fast in this edition. Our front page and main story is on the Kyogle Billycart Bonanza and we also have an article on Kyogle lad Dean Ferris and his motor cross adventures.

There's been plenty of talk about the new entry signs to Casino too. Have a read on Page 3 and find out what the symbols mean.
