THE other day I had a thought train, and it all stemmed from Chris Marechalís Mustang (SM, Mar í17) and the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational. How good would it be if such an event existed here? At the moment, most of the focus in Australia is on burnouts and drag racing. With the exception of the driving events at Summernats, there is very little in the way of circuit racing to test a carís performance. But just imagine the top cars from Summernats, MotorEx, etc, in a time attack competition? It would be a great way to test and prove all the talented engineering work carried out by our craftspeople! We already have some great pro touring-themed cars ready to go.
It could even lead to cars being built to the level of Chrisís íStang right here!
