Andrew Williams in his giant killing 330hp XU1. He's up against it at this track running with the big V8's. It's effectively like 2 drag strips with corners at either end. He still gives them hell in his screaming little inline six. Race Recall supplied Camera.

Amaroo Park was a 1.9 kilometres (1.2 mi) motor racing circuit located in
Annangrove, New South Wales, in the present-day western suburbs of Sydney,
Australia. It was opened in 1967, hosting its first motorcycle meeting on
26 February with a 30 lap production race won by Larry Simons on a BSA
Spitfire in heavy rain. The first dry meeting saw the lap record set by
Jack Ahearn at 63.9 seconds. The road circuit served as a venue for a
variety of competitions including the Castrol 6 Hour motorcycle race,
rounds of the Australian Touring Car Championship, Formula Ford, Formula
5000, historic racing and others. The last Australian Touring Car
Championship round to take place at the circuit was in 1994.

built by the king of 202's in australia) is faster here by a couple of tenths a lap. we
were both in the low 26's. my car ( 308 with good horsepower )ended up with a
ruptured welsh plug and jonsey a jammed gear likage, but it was still a
terrific day. cement dust came from an earlier session where a car lost its
oil in the fastest curve on the track. this is some of the action that will
be repeated in Vicv8's during 2013 racing season.

Climb - Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a Monster
Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it
races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the
"Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time,
Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to
claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th
birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching
the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in
the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill
Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of
all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a
Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent
extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface
on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel
than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of
their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's
race car helped push the driver forward.
