After 2 years on the sidelines due to a crash, Kym Oberauer of KO Racing returned to the winners circle, not once, but twice during March. That’s 2 from 2 in 2011.
And to say the Kym was happy (and a little surprised) is an understatement. “I had no expectations going into the meeting at Ballarat on the 6th of March. All I wanted to do was some testing and make sure the Camira would go straight and behave. I certainly didn’t expect to go rounds”.
After a nervous start Kym got back into the swing of things and decided to enter eliminations. 5 rounds later he took home the winner’s trophy over local Ballarat racer Scott Rouhan.

It's been almost 2 years since the altercation between the Camira and the right hand wall at Heathcote Park Raceway.
Over the 2 year re-build a few things have changed but much has stayed the same. The most obvious is the change of colour to Electric Orange. It's a Ford colour but I'm not brand biased. And with the gold Magnum rims my ride has been pimped just a little - you won't miss it in a crowd that's for sure.
Apart from the colour, the Camira has new boots all round, heim joints, new windows and of course the whole right hand side which was kindly donated by a wrecked Camira in Ballarat. It was sacrificed for the greater good. The engine and box never came out of the car and after 2 years of sitting idle it fired to life the first time. What was even more amazing is that the battery has never been charged and the fuel was stale.
