Raced at the Collingrove Hillclimb last weekend. Still coming down from how awesome that place is. So here is an awesome European Hillclimb video. This is Rechberg 2017. Enjoy!

I live in Australia. That means, amongst other things, that I have no real concept of war or terror in my country. Yes Darwin was bombed during WWII and yes the television networks have waged a war on good taste, but neither of these really represent what it's like to experience war at home. Similarly we've not been subject to many major terror attacks. Sure there have been ideas hatched and schemes plotted, but they tend to get foiled before they really get the chance to cause mass disruption. Whether this says more about our law enforcement agencies or the attempted perpetrators remains to be seen.

A couple years ago when I was travelling through the US and A on holiday there was a terror attack in Boston, Massachusetts. I was nowhere near there at the time, but knew people who were. It was worrying. We didn't know who was responsible, and other than the very vague something blew up at the Boston Marathon we didn't even really know what happened.

If you hang out here, then you know that I'm a bit of a fan of the R32 Nissan GT-R, Godzilla. Especially in it's Group A racing guise. 

I've linked before to in-depth photos of the car, but there's a much deeper story about pretty much everything that they did. So if you're interested, click through to Speedhunters for an interview with Alan Heaphy, the man responsible for the level of war that Godzilla waged on Australian motorsport soil.

If you follow drag racing, especially the NHRA version, you would no doubt be aware that Top Fuel returnee Larry Dixon was asked to remove his sponsorship decals at the Gatornationals in Gainsville, Florida this weekend. And the angry-at-everything crowd is crying foul. Because of course they fucking are.

Larry was running a sign on both sides of his otherwise un-sponsored car for the upcoming World Series of Drag Racing event to be held at Cordova Raceway Park. The Cordova facility is owned by the IHRA. And here as they say, en-lies the rub.

Earlier this week I read a story about a Toyota executive who wants to build a car. You can read about it too if you like: https://www.wheelsmag.com.au/news/1703/toyota-c-hr-designer-wants-proper-performance-variant Hiroyuki Koba, the article says is a veteran of Toyota having been responsible for a large number of volume sellers. However what makes him different from most other execs is what he does on weekends. He owns a Twin Turbo Supra which he uses as a track toy. He also spends time racing open wheelers, the reason that WHEELS credits with him spending minimal time here in Australia. And prior to the Supra, he owned an SW20 MR2, and before that an AW11 MR2.

It would seem that Hiroyuki knows his way around Toyota's catalogue of classic and awesome sports cars. And that’s a very good thing.
