Before Canberra s Chloe Granger hits
the road to compete in the Miss Teen
Galaxy Australia pageant finals she
will whip around the track at Power
Kart Raceway to raise money for
The 18 year old from Fadden will
take on a 12-hour endurance race on
Friday, March 20 and drive laps in
tandem with her father, Lachlan, and
brother, Will, from 9pm.
"We figured that I wouldn t be able
to do it all myself because I would
have to stop for water, food and breaks
so my dad came up with the idea of
doing it as a tag team," she said.
Mr Granger, co-owner of Power
Kart Raceway, said he hoped the
spectacle would draw a big crowd and
raise money for the Make-A-Wish
"It s the first time we have run an
all-night event like this at the track," he
said. "It s something completely
different. It s a better way to raise
money with one bigger event rather
than having lots of barbecues and
Spectators can check out the action
for free, but those that want to rival
Chloe on the track can do so by
donating $5 towards the cause.
She said a bit of healthy competition
would make the many hours in the
"My brother Will does go-karting as
a sport," Chloe said. "I m sure he will
be very competitive with me.
I ll try to get some good times but
by the end of the night I m sure I ll be
After the event, Chloe will join 70
beauties on the Gold Coast later this
month to compete for the Miss Teen
Galaxy Australia crown.
She said her keen interest in make-
up and fashion made preparing for
pageants good fun.
"I love dressing up and walking
around on stage," Chloe said. "I do all
my own hair and make-up for
competition but I really like it and it
doesn t feel like work for me at all."
She had a taste of victory in 2014
after being crowned Miss Country Girl
Wagga, but snaring the crown in
Queensland later this month would
mean representing Australia in the
United States on the Galaxy pageant s
It would be amazing to win, she
said. I hope to enter Miss Universe or
Miss World when I am older so this is
a step in the right direction.

events lifts off in Canberra this week.
The 29th Canberra Balloon
Spectacular runs for nine consecutive
days from Saturday until March 15.
Balloon Aloft Canberra chief pilot
Richard Gillespie, a 20-year veteran in
ballooning, said he enjoyed flying in
I ve flown in probably 20
countries around the world in lots of
balloon events, he said. I think
Canberra is one of the best. It is one of
the few where you can fly over a city,
particularly a capital city.
He said balloonists around the
world were fond of the ACT.
"It is such an interesting place to
fly, Mr Gillespie said.
"Just the topography of Canberra
with the mountains behind us and the
lake in the middle makes it a really
"I fly here all year round and still
find it an interesting and challenging
place to fly."
An Events ACT spokeswoman said
balloons from Belgium and the United
States were coming to participate.
She said there would be about 30
balloons in total, including the two
special entries this year of Yoda and
Organisers expect more than 30,000
spectators for the event.
Each day from 6am pilots will begin
inflating balloons on the lawns of Old
Hot breakfasts will be served by the
Belconnen Lions Club with proceeds
going back to the community.
Most of the balloons will be in the
air by 7.30am. Entertainment and
breakfast runs until 10am.
