“What I am about to write cannot be described in any words used from this worlds vocabulary, however I will try my hardest! On October the 14th, 2006 was the day that I step up the ladder and become one of the women in Australia to experience the wrath of a Top fuel Dragster, and I can tell you now, they are AWESOME!” Read More ...

Tough Guys!

… John Mancini, Wesco Group of Companies.
Life is difficult to navigate at best. 
Being a black belt, boxer, body builder or bikie doesn’t necessarily or by default make you a tough guy. Just getting through life in one piece is tough enough as skin thickens with age. Wisdom is more often born from failure rather than success. 
“Royal Show”.

Andrew Hodgson and Maurice Fabietti did a great big job organising a formal entertainment entry of drag racers into the Royal Easter Show this year in Sydney. 
A large group of racers along with their families brought their cars to the show for a first time display then entered the NAB stadium for a synchronised motor revving in front of thousands of onlookers. 
“Nitro Champs” May 2008.
After four years hangin around the WSID I finally convinced my beautiful wife to attend this particular race meeting… she brought the kids… the eldest one has been to the track before and loves drag racing while my wife and youngest daughter thought it was all too loud. Coupl’a photos with Amanda then home they went to the log fire and Foxtel; my eldest daughter complaining she wanted to stay with her dad.

One day I gotta tell the clowns in the tower at WSID that it’s difficult to sell BBQ Bob over “The Quarter Mile Smile”…
