CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

Mark Carter, The Gap, Qld

LOVED the Drag Challenge coverage in the January issue. The best part was the features on each entrant – the variety was awesome! You’d expect lots of LS motors, but there was a turbo Hemi six, Lexus V8, a John Kaase Shotgun and even a 409!

Blowers, turbo, nitrous and aspirated – something for everyone.

In a world where V8 Supercars, NASCARs and most other forms of motorsport are all cookiecutters, it is great to see old-fashioned owner/ driver/mechanics taking the opportunity to dream up their own crazy combinations and put them to the test on the road and track. Big-budget or smallbudget, you’ve got to have a real street car to finish this event and I reckon that is great.
