Daniel Hunt says he was born with a love of cars. He says it’s in his blood and if you have a look at his family tree, you know he’s not lying.
There’s Daniel’s son, James, who is playing with his toy truck as this interview is being conducted.
“As soon as he’s big enough, he’ll get a go kart,” Daniel said.
And then there’s Daniel’s dad Allan ‘Gundy’ Hunt. He’s a legend in motorsport circles around the region.
Gundy – who has “always been interested in cars” – has been competing for 50-odd years and first joined the Tamworth Sporting Car Club back in 1967.
Gundy went on to compete in the very first race the club held back in 1993 and on Sunday TSCC will celebrate the 25th anniversary of that race.
Gundy will again be lining up – in a westfield clubman and so will Daniel – in an argus clubman.
They’ll be going head-to-head and as to who will win between the two, it seems experience will reign supreme.
“Dad will [win]. I’ve never driven these before so it’ll be my first time in an open wheeler,” Daniel said.
“I’m just going out for a bit of fun.”
Gundy’s also going for a bit of fun and doesn’t look like slowing down any time soon.
“I enjoy racing with anyone. I’ve done a fair bit of it,” Gundy said.
“I go away to do whatever my wallet will let me do and I still enjoy it. It’s great fun.”
There will be 26 cars racing at Oakburn Park on Sunday.
The event starts at 9.30am, with scrutineering from 8am and there will be a canteen open all day.
