Re: theTRUTH

The feedback about people trying to run periscopes has never been very positive. Quite often they are too small and don't offer a view where the rider / driver can orientate themselves with the horizon or the track. This is after all how you get your balance.

Importing Race Cars to Australia

G'Day All, I have had an enquiry from a Bonneville Racer, thinking about advertising his car here in the hope that someone will buy it and import it. So who has had experience or has current knowledge of importing a race car to Australia? To get the ball rolling, apart from the actual container cost...

The track markings we provide now are a compromise with what will be visable vs what will stay up in the strong winds we experience vs what will do the le...
