A few weeks ago the sporting car club of SA held a 400m sprint event at Tailem bend, they are planning to run it bi monthly next year so if you are interested in racing your car at the closest thing we have to a 1/4 mile track in this crap city then keep an eye on the SCCSA website.
Scruteneering was not as strict as alot of people expected and a fun day was had by most.

Here is a vid to wet the appetite.

Ahh so you're the guy in the teal TG (?)

Watched that vid last night, good stuff. Looks like it was holding it's own against the bigger guys quite comfortably too :)

Oh, and agree 110% with not having a proper drag strip, even though it's not really my cup of tea personally. Damn this state!

Yeah I took my daily TD out there for a private day just over a week ago. Bit of drift and grip but it was my first time driving on the track so I wasn't able to do much in either department. Think open diff, fuel surging Nikki, stock motor and old suspension :(

I had a blast though, and I'm in the process of building a track only TE to do a bit of everything. Drift, Motokhanas, Hillclimbs, Circuit etc

Come to think of it, there are quite a few of us SA guys building track Gems at the moment. I count at least 5 besides myself.
