Billy McCarthy travelled 16,000kms to enter the Stonethrowers Rally.
The Brisbane-based Killarney man was home for a friend’s wedding and decided to enter a rally as a part of his holiday.
Sunday’s event was run in scorching conditions and even the man home from Australis was finding the going though.
“This is the best one-day weight loss programme I have ever signed up to,” he said.
He and his co-driver John Falvey were second in Class 9 in a Nissan Micra. The pair started rallying together in 2009 in the same Micra. Billy’s last previous rally was the 2019 Rally of the Lakes.
