The reason I was there was to keep this car going all weekend, but I did manage to get a few photos too.



Now for some action photos.



















Photos taken with my Nikon D40 with a Sigma 70/300 apo lens. Questions and comments welcome.

Very nice action photos. Australia certainly seems to have a wealth of racing. I note the rear suspensions on that first Toyota truck seems to be very sophisticated. V8 or V6 powered? I guess it could be a four.

If it's V8, is it the OHC Toyota or the Nascar OHV V8 ? I'm also a car buff.

Hi Lesmore, The car I work on is car number 14, that is a USA made Jimco buggy powered by a 3.5 litre, quad cam, twin turbo V6 with a Albins sequential 6 speed trans axle.
The first truck in the photos is car number 427. That is from memorya Holden Rodeo body. I'm sorry but I dont know more about that car off hand but I will try to find out more at work on Monday.

Thanks for the information. Australia seems to be quite the hot bed for automotive development and racing. My understanding is that the GM rear wheel drive sedans and coupes that are high performance and are available in North America, other than the Corvette, are many times either developed in Australia, or are based on Holden models.

Quad OHC, twin turbos, 6 speed transmission...that must be quite the ride !

The pix are great, really capture the race cars and the racing quite well. Some nice roostertails, also lots of air between the cars and the ground.
