NO ONE can say the ANZAC spirit has died in Australia. I have just returned from the USA where I attended Drag Week and witnessed almost impossible odds faced by the Australians that competed. Five drag strips, 1200 miles to attend them all, carry your spares and crew in the vehicle and over 300 competitors all trying to win their respective classes to be the fastest street-legal cars in the world. I canít speak highly enough of our boys that held out until the end and got the task done. They did us proud.

PS: Your photographers were the hardest workers of them all in covering the event.
