http://bangshift.com/blog/more-australian-burnout-video-we-cant-get-enough-of-these-crazy-bastards-and-why-arent-our-new-cars-rear-wheel-drive.html




I can’t help myself. I love the Australian burnout competitions. They seriously kick our asses, and I consider myself to be an expert in the area of smoking tires. And how in the hell is it that even modern cars on the Australian continent are rear wheel drive? That’s an unfair advantage! Their cars are cooler, they have more burnout contests, apparently less lawyers, and tires that smoke in different colors. How the hell does that work? Who am I kidding, I’m a purest. I like my white tire smoke.


Anyway, check out this cool video. Good music too. You’ll dig it. And until next time…Smoke’em if you got ‘em.

You're right.

I was there when Nemo ran the 25.02 and watching these vids reminds me of the awesome weekend. cheers

Tarzan beat the Skaife's V8 time in 2010, Lowndes unofficially beat Tarzan early in 2011 then Tarzan beat that only months later. With the V8's back at Eastern Creek nothing wrong with comparing the two once again with the upgraded track.
Will be interesting next year with the "Car of the Future" but there will be a few more Time Attack teams building cars like Nemo. I think both will be setting faster times next year...

And to keep the vids rolling...

World Rally December 1995 - The Toyota Story

Toyota Team Europe has been banned from competition for the next 12months, and the points already gained in the 1995 World Rally Championship have been taken away by the FIA.

"It's the most ingenious thing I have seen in 30 years of motorsport." admitted FIA President Max Mosley after an extraordinary meeting of the FIA's World Council convened following technical reports on Toyota from the Catalunya Rally.

The cause of complaint was that Toyota had fitted turbo restrictor’s which were modified in three ways:

The restrictor was not sealed so it was possible to move it without touching the seals.

It was possible for air to enter the engine without passing through the restrictor.

The position of the restrictor could be moved so it was further away from the turbine than the 50mm limit permitted.

The offending illegally modified turbo restrictors which banished Toyota from the WRC.


It was discovered that these irregularities were made possible by a flange which had a special hidden bypass device which was held open against a very strong spring. The hose which connected the restrictor to the turbo had a metal casing inside, and attached to this casing were catches which could secretly force open the by-pass flange to the extent of 5 mm.

Max Mosley explained: "When the system was dismantled, the flange would automatically close itself and remove evidence that extra air could have entered engine. This system not only allowed extra air which did not pass through the restrictor to enter the engine, but also the restrictor itself could illegally be moved further from the turbo.

"The hose was fixed to the restrictor by a jubilee clip. A special tool was then applied to open the device and then the device then gripped in the open position by a second clip. Both of these clips had to be undone for a scrutineer to check the restrictor and in the process of opening those clips the device snapped shut.

"Inside it was beautifully made. The springs inside the hose had been polished and machined so not to impede the air which passed through. To force the springs open without the special tool would require substantial force. It is the most sophisticated and ingenious device either I or the FIA's technical experts have seen for a long-time. It was so well made that there was no gap apparent to suggest there was any means of opening it."

The FIA estimates that 25 per cent more air was allowed into the engine than permitted although admits it's difficult to estimate how much more power that would achieve. An expert put it as high as an extra 50 bhp—a considerable advantage when the cars are supposedly limited to 300 BHP.

TTE did not claim the device was legal but was represented by lawyers who entered a plea in mitigation. Mosley went on to say that the points Toyota and their drivers, Juha Kankkunen, Didier Auriol and Armin Schwarz had gained in 1995 would simply be taken away but others would not move up to fill the gaps.

The team would also be banned from contesting the 1995 Network Q RAC Rally and the 1996 World Rally Championship. He also stated that the FIA would not allow the team to get around the restrictions by entering under another guise and went on to say that there was however, nothing to suggest that the drivers were aware of anything going on.

According to Toyota the device had been devised at a "certain level" and the management knew nothing about it. The FIA dismissed this claim, saying that as a team they were responsible for all their actions.

He went on to say that there were indications that this type of thing was not happening with in other teams and praised those who were concerned with discovering the irregularity. TTE has announced that it is planning to appeal against the ban extending through 1996.

The absence of the team would weaken an already frail championship and leave it to a fight between Subaru, Mitsubishi and Ford with Subaru being the obvious favorites.
