ED ‘THE WRONG WAY ROCK STAR’ OWEN – DRIVER
Ed, whilst learning the craft from one of the sport’s most successful drivers, two-time Australian Champion Daniel James, went the wrong way 25 times in a row over a complete season …..yes a complete season, but always with a smile on his face.
Tim (the CAVEMAN, World Commentator) Barrot once asked Ed,
“How can you stand here with a smile on your face having gone the wrong way for an entire season?”
Ed’s reply: “Because I am doing what 100 people sitting in the crowd wish they were doing, what’s not to smile about?”
CAVEMAN: “...and who do you think you are with that bandanna on YOUR BLOODY HEAD? Jon Bon Jovi, or something? I’m going to be calling you the Wrong Way Rock Star, self imposed of course.”
So Ed will always be know as ‘Wrong Way’, even when he gets the track direction right.
So with the guidance from Daniel James and navigator, Erin Winch, WA 111 350 Class has now had several podium finishes and continues to improve, with not too many Wrong Ways.
