NISSAN RB30 TURBO HOLDEN GEMINI - WHEEL STAND
Moey pulling off an awesome wheel stand coming towards the end of the night
at the 2011 Sydney Jamboree.
Also in the other lane was Nathan Farrugia in his awesome FD 20B RX7.
Although appearing to not cross the centre line it was enough to give both
competitors a decent shake up. Moey especially after hitting the wall on a
fast pass in his 7-second BMW after pulling the chute!
