Cradle Coast Rally was a short one day rally held on the last weekend in February 2012. Some classic stages including Savage River and Hellyer Gorge which is also a stage in Targa Tasmania. The run was not 100% smooth for us with fuel issues due to the heat and a dropped lifter for the biggest stage of the event, but we have FINALLY put some better rubber on the wheels and upgraded the brakes from the factory ones we had run at every event till now. Loved the new Yokohama Advan Neova tyres and many thanks to Yokohama and Legana Tyres and More for those. Again many thanks to Craig "Wheelie" Milich for being there when we needed him and creating a car for us that never under-steered, unlike the made up silver Merc with a huge Chev engine as shown here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YiCkoMNB-s&feature=g-all-u&context=G257800cFAAAAAAAAAAA This is a good example of a car that does not handle well. I have turned down driving lessons offered to me by this driver, this footage and comparative times I think make it clear why.
HO Phase 6 - XE Ford Falcon
This is the original Phase 6 that Wayne Draper built for the street in 1982
(for the Dick Johnson street car prototype).
The original engine in 82' for Johnson was a a turbo charged 6 cylinder cross flow. In 88', a 351
Cleveland with carburetor was put in (and is still in today). It's been
perfectly tuned by our Phase Autos toy shop. Enjoy!
Best of Rallye Crash Compilation 2014-Ultimate Big Rally Crashes 2013
Rally Crashes happened in 2012 and 2013 . Car accidents because of drifts .
The production-based cars with 1.6 L direct injection turbo engine and four-wheel drive are built to
World Rally Car regulations for racing across tarmac, gravel and snow. The
power output is limited to around 300 bhp (225 kW). Current cars in the
championship include the Citroën DS3 WRC, Ford Fiesta RS WRC and Mini WRC.
The WRC was formerly held for Group A and Group B rallycars. However, due
to the increasing power, lack of reliability and a series of fatal
accidents on the 1986 season, Group B was permanently banned. Later, in
1997, the Group A cars evolved into the WRC car spec, to ease the
development of new cars and bring new makes to the competition. In 2011,
new rules were introduced to encourage more manufacturers (and privateers)
to take part, because the recent economic downturn had prompted several
manufacturers to leave the championship.
Cars in the Production Car World Rally Championship are limited to
production-based cars homologated under Group N rules. Cars in the Super
2000 World Rally Championship are homologated under Super 2000 rules. Most
cars in the Junior World Rally Championship are homologated under Super
1600 rules, but Group N and selected Group A cars can also contest the
Starting in 2013,a new category of rally cars known as Group R were
introdued as a replacement to the Group A and Group N rally categories,
with cars classified under one of six categories based on their engine
capacity and type, wheelbase, and drivetrain. As a result no cars will be
homologated under Group A and Group N regulations and instead will be
reclassified under Group R. Parallel to this, the Super 2000 and Production
Car World Championships were restructured; Super 2000 and Group N cars were
merged into a single championship known as World Rally Championship-2
alongside R4 and R5 cars, whilst the Production Car World Championship was
completely reimagined as the World Rally Championship-3 for two-wheel drive
cars complying with R1, R2 and R3 regulations.
WRC Teams and Drivers
20 different manufacturers have won a World Rally Championship event,
and a further ten have finished on the podium.
Suzuki and Subaru pulled out of the WRC at the end of the 2008
championship, both citing the economic downturn then affecting the
automotive industry for their withdrawal. Mini and Ford both pulled out of
the WRC at the end of the 2012 championship, due to a similar economic
downturn affecting the European market.
A typical WRC team will consist of about 40 people on the events, with a
further 60--100 at the team base.
Manufacturers and manufacturer-backed teams usually have two or three
drivers participating in each rally who are eligible to score points. The
total number of crews (driver and his co-driver) in the rallies varied from
47 (Monte Carlo and Mexico) to 108 (Great Britain) during the 2007
In 2012, The Ford World Rally Team and The Mini WRC Team both announced
their departure from the World Rally Championships for the 2013 season.
Volkswagen and Hyundai will make their return to the championship in 2013
and 2014, respectively.Best of Crash Rallye HD Best of Crash Rallye HD Best

The crash - Targa Tasmania 2012 in our 1973 Mustang
This is the stage and in-car footage of our crash on Elephant Saddle
yesterday! Only yesterday. Dad and I are both fine and well. Dad has been
checked out by his GP and given a clean bill of health. The FIV guys on the
course were very thorough and looked after us too.
I would like to thank Barry and Charles from car 925 (the Envy Scooters
Ute) for doing the right thing and then going above and beyond inensuring
we were OK and helping us alert every car after the incident. They knew
thier own stage was over, and they might have missed the whole day and yet
they stayed. That's the Targa spirit.
A huge thanks goes out to our crew who volunteer for us. They take annual
leave to be at Targa. They build us an amazing car and I have killed it. So
to our crew goes my heartfelt aplogy. Words cannot express my gratitude
towards Warren, Steve, Matt, Pete andthe dozens of people who have
contributed overthe years.
This incident was my fault in the end. You might be able to see/hear a
downshift to 3rd with a rev match that was obviously not good enough. It
unsettled the car enough to lose traction in the rear, and here are the
The car, Junior, was only finished the day before Prologue, so we are
pretty gutted at the result of this. But we will come back bigger and
better. We love what we do.
And lastly, but certainly not least, my apologies go out to our fans (or
Junior's fans) that actually extends overseas. To you all, my thanks for
you support and my apology for not lookingafter Junior properly.
And to everyone, we will rebuild. The only damage is in the shell. We are
looking for another 1973 shell, and we will be back bigger, better,
stronger and more experienced.

Targa Tas 2011 Mt Roland, pass a Ferrari
Best stage of the event for us. We are caught and passed by a TR7 V8 and
then hang on his arse to the finish, and we both pass a Ferrari. Not a bad
effort keeping up with the TR7 when we have road tyres, standard brakes,
and the fact that an XE Falcon isn't as aerodynamic as a TR7, let alone a
Ferrari! Gets a bit damp and greasy towards the end. I think the driver
enjoyed himself, Navigator did too! Thanks Craig and Neil in the TR7
