The Esses

In 2 weeks' time, my home town of Bathurst will transform into a car-racing city. Mt Panorama is famous for its annual car race and Charles Sturt University is situated at the bottom of Mt Panorama, so we can hear the roar of the cars and the crowds. One of the most famous stretches of the track is called "The Esses" because of the tight S-like curves. It occurred to me that with the completion of Kate Crowe's PhD, my current cadre of PhD students are "The Esses": Sarah, Sarah, and Suzanne, with their supervisor: Sharynne. Consequently, they graciously agreed to have a photo on the track!
