NASCAR Goodyear 500 (Calder Thunderdome) 1988 ICMR
The Goodyear NASCAR 500 race was run at the then new A$54 million Calder
Park Thunderdome (built by Bob Jane) in Melbourne, Australia on February
28, 1988. The race was the first ever NASCAR event held outside of North
America. Aussies competing include Allan Grice, Dick Johnson and Jim
Richards. All credit to Mike Raymond and Channel 7 Sport Sydney, Australia.

In front of over 7000 Melbourne race fans, the ANDRA Drag Racing Series
marked its return after 12 years away from Australia's sporting capital
with thrilling action across three ANDRA pro categories.
Morgan defeated event debutante John Lamattina in a close fought final with
Morgan's 4.322 narrowly defeating a 4.556 from Lamattina.
Morgan paid credit to his crew for their efforts not just at Fuchs Nitro
Thunder presented by Crow Cams but across the whole season.
"This crew has been amazing not just today but every time they go to work
on this car," he said. "(Crew chief) Ben Patterson took a bit of a stab at
the tune up today after we had an ignition shut off on one run and then a
seized fuel pump in a warm up and sure enough it went down there -- he got
it right and to do that twice in one day is full credit to him.
"In the run before the final I was on the hand brake trying to keep
traction so Ben calmed it down for the final and it sailed on through."
Morgan defeated chief championship rival Phil Lamattina in the first
elimination round and with 74 points now separating the pair, qualifying
fifth or better at the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway in two weeks
would mean Morgan wraps up his fourth Top Fuel title.
"Championship wise it is what it is, we take the punches as we swing them,"

May 18th was Round 2 of the Roadking Chassis VicDrift Championship!
It was my first trip over to Victoria to check the drifting out, I was
stoked with the opportunity to film for VicDrift and produce this video.
The day was sweet with a new layout they has designed the night before,
running the usual course backwards and switching over past the drag strip.
I hope you guys enjoy the video, it took long enough!

For the final time in 2009 Hpheaven headed up the road to Calder Park
Raceway for a night of Hoon Heaven as the AMC put on the legal off street
drags. Although not officially touted as a Christmas meet, there was a good
vibe in the air as once again over 200 competitors made their way through
the turnstiles. Amoungst those were some familiar names like Athans and
Robinson, as well as Operation Drag Right and the boys behind Wytjet and
blujet. There was a healthy mix of Fords Vs Holdens, as well as Nissans and
US Muscle cars, and a few rotaries to boot. There was also the odd Renault
and even a sporty little Volts Wagon Golf, which made a fast pase down the
quarter mile. But the honours for night went to George from Hadad racing
with his Mustangs opening
up the throttle and leaving hot tracks down the runway. It was Eddy's
birthday and special thanks goes to Adam. Friday Nights Are Back! And we
have over 45 minutes of non stop action to prove it! So sit back, adjust
you seatbelt, check your mirrors and enjoy the ride!
