R&T PumpsIt seems to go like this in my world; I met Tony and Barb Warne at one of the very first V8Supercar meetings in Townsville. They love their motorsport and we got along like a house on fire. Of course we talked our favourite subject: motorsport. For a couple of years we'd meet in Townsville and we'd have a hell of a laugh and our friendship grew. I began to see them at some of the bigger races like Sandown, Bathurst and Sydney. So that's how our friendship began.

I invited them to come to watch the 2014 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour and stay over and join me at my V8Race ride/drive program on The Mountain following the 12 Hour. Now, I can't tell you exactly what happened during Warnie's ride with me - let's just say we had a little incident at about 240kph going into The Chase. It was at dinner that night when he asked me “Do I try and kill all my sponsors?”  The answer was no, just frighten them enough that they sign the cheque. We laughed some more.

They are the salt of the earth people, typical bush people and operate a very successful business in Mackay. They specialise in all aspects of water management projects including key start applications for the design, supply and installation of pumps, pipe work, filtration and tanks to the mining/industrial, domestic and agricultural sectors of Mackay and the Bowen Basin. They are a dedicated family business and pride themselves on the friendly and personal service they provide to their valued clients.  They have a fully equipped workshop and offer an in field service facility. They supply all major brands and their shop carries a full range of products available for their client to view and access.

I'm planning a few trips to Mackay, so I look forward to catching the local folk when I'm in town. I thank Tony and Barb for their support, as they are awesome people. If you have an opportunity to support them, please do!
