I've heard it said that in the future, you can choose to be quick or loud, but you won't be able to be both. Those Teslas are amazing and to think, their low priced car for the masses is only just around the corner...

Gotta support the local events mate. Being a springmount member will get you a small discount on entry also. Every little bit helps.

its still a rip off to race like $100 for test and tune for couple of runs.in townsville test and tune was $20 and have as many runs as you like and can raced anytime you want.

But how much does it cost you to trailer your car or drive your car to townsville? and back?

If that adds up to more than $100 then the event is free is it not?

i would rather pay the extra money for trailer and fuel so you can have as many races as you like.on the weekend the tempory aussies had a lot more races then the street cars.

Did you get to go for a ride? I am keen to experience 920 lb-ft of torque from zero revs.
