Double Trouble in this one with both Josh’s FG and Bilsto’s BF!

Josh’s ute which is yet another car that if not for the giveaway cut out in the headlight would be one of the most unassuming cars driving around doing the shopping run, but the list of specs on this one tells a very different story.

And Ian’s, well, there is no mucking around going on under the shell of this one, this is definitely strictly business.

Check out what the boys put the XR6 Turbo’s through on our freshly prepped radial surface…

And if you haven’t seen the behind the scenes documentary on what went into the track for the upcoming days prior to this event, go and have a look!

The prep video has been months in the making – with alot of thought, effort and preparation behind the scenes (and we mean ALOT) to make this a truly unique and educational watch for anyone interested in learning just what it takes to turn a track from ‘ok’ to ‘elite’!

Seeing some of the W.A Radial Cars finally get the track they’ve been dreaming of here at the Perth Motorplex in Western Australia was a huge deal, and it’s definitely only just the beginning now that we’ve seen what is actually capable.

Check out the interviews with the experts – Justin, Lorenzo and Brendan to get the ins and outs of the weekend and what it took to put this educational documentary together.
