|Dennis & Shirley Whatman have been married for 31 years , both are atthe young ages between 40 and 50. Dennis infact has a handicap (NO NOT THE WIFE) but has lost 1 hand, 1 eye and part of his other hand. But that hasn’t stopped Dennis from racing. Dennis’s buggy is known as “Grandpa’s Wheelchair”.|
His car is Fluro Yellow with Fluro Pink Wheels. Dennis doesn’t like colours but sure as (as Shirly would put it)hell catches the eye of the spectators.
1997 Finke Desert
Shirley 2nd Class 2.
Whatman first started racing as a navigator for her husband Dennis inn 1993.
At first Shirley was only allowed in the drivers seat for special occassion
races, eg: Mothers Day or Ladies Races. Shirley started winning races &
became competative with Dennis’s prologue times, hence the need for
Dennis to upgrade to a Class 1 Buggy. As Shirley would put it Hip Hip Hooray,
Shirley now has her own buggy.
