Some confusing media releases popped up in the last couple of weeks regarding the upcoming season of Australian drag racing. As explained on DragNews Australia in much more detail, a pair of announcements that really should have been good news were poorly received because they were so badly written.

It's approaching two years since Australian drag racing entered its darkest hour. And for those who love our sport, it has been a very long hour. The war between ANDRA and the big tracks has claimed many casualties, the first of which was a true National series. Though a lot of good equipment was sold off cheap by disgruntled racers, and so many of the remaining racers stepped up. Silver linings and small wins I suppose...

I don't write about my own racing here much. Let's be honest, outside of club level motorsport nobody really cares about club level motorsport. But it's a great thing, and in South Australia at least it seems as though it's as strong as ever.


And the event that I competed in over the weekend just gone is quickly becoming my favourite event to be a part of anywhere in the country. And with good reason.

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.
