Default Speedway car shots

Hello,
A mate recently took me out to Model Park Sydney. I took the Pentax K10D with me and snapped off a few billion shots. Here are some, please enjoy.

Peter

PS - I put some shots on rcgroups too, big car section, but a bit quiet over there

Yep, they are pretty cool. I'm going to sell my 1/8 on road nitros for a 1/4 scale speedway car and join their club. I reckon there's some bajas disguised out there too?
I really don't know anything about this class, yet.

Thanks
Peter

Yer that was crazy! I have only ever seen one in a video, but live, chessus[X(][X(][X(]. They have a speed board so everyone can see how fast they move. Average speed was 179km/h. I had to leave by 30 mins as my ears were about to implode.
Here's some more shots.

Thanks

Peter

the last one I saw around here in NJ was back in the 70's or 80's... Kind of went the way of the control line ariplane... I know there are still a few places around.. the one in NY is the only one I know about here... Nice pics 10X8....

I like your attitude. I'd really like a bike sidecar 1/4 scale, with a 3rd ch servo jockey, but I have never seen one?

quarterscale35 - Thanks, I enjoyed watching your cars.
