Revheads tie knot on track at Powercruise

LOVE and marriage is like a horse and carriage, the song goes.

For Lyndal Gordon, 25, and Matt Daveson, 27, it should say "love and marriage is like a car and racetrack".

The Bribie Island couple are set to walk down the aisle to a chorus of muscle cars revving at Powercruise 43 at Queensland Raceway today.

For Miss Gordon, holding her wedding at her favourite car show made perfect sense. "It was my idea actually. We both love cars and we've come here every year since we've been together," she said.

The organisers of Powercruise 43 agreed to hold the ceremony on the racetrack of Queensland Raceway.

A fleet of muscle cars are set to form an aisle for the bride-to-be.

"I'm being delivered by a stunt driver. He's going to do all the tricks around the track while I'm in the car, then he's going to come to a sliding halt for me to get out and walk down the aisle," she said.

Miss Gordon's mum Tricia Duncan said she was extremely happy for her daughter.

"I'm happy for her. It's different. She's a hothead anyway, so the cars suit her. She's a hothead and he's hot and racy! She'll probably smack me when she reads that," she said.
