Cunderdin farmer Bill Taylor is cranking up for another trip in his trusty Chamberlain 9G tractor recently. "There's another trip being planned to go from Steep Point (Exmouth) across to the east but I won't be going this time," he said "I'm too old."But I'll take the 9G up to Steep Point (Exmouth) where they'll start the trek." Bill was referring to the Chamberlain 9G Tractor Club of WA's famous trek in 2000 from Steep Point to Byron Bay and its plans to do it again.

The 9G Tractor Club of WA is planning another epic trek across Australia.

The 2020 event will re-enact its famous 2000 Steep Point, Exmouth to Byron Bay trek, completed a year after the club was formed.

According to club president and founder Hugh ‘Cumber’ Campbell, some club members will jump the gun later this year and head to Temora, New South Wales, where they will leave their beloved 9Gs and return next year to start the engines to join the contingent heading to Byron Bay.

“We haven’t worked out a date yet but we’re definitely planning the trek,” he told Torque this week. 

“We’ll then head back to the west as a club sometime after we’ve hit Byron,” Hugh said.

In the meantime, plans already are in full swing by several 9G members to attend Trachmach’s Lights on the Hill field day at Brunswick on Saturday, April 13.

Trachmach is focusing on Chamberlain tractors this year as the main theme to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the first 45K Chamberlain built in WA.

If the date is not in your diary it should be. 

This is a great event for the family, celebrating the h
