Speedway season is officially underway and it just so happened that we had a Scroungers visit to legendary driver John Stanley's house on Sunday. What a trip! The walls of John's garage are jammed with the evidence of a life dedicated to racing - not to mention his workshop and the cars! The Hank Henry injected chev sprintcar, the Frank Brewer V860 powered # 99 replica that John built and the restored Bob Tattersall Offy powered "Hollywood Spring & Axle" # 54 car all grace his garage. John took us step by step through the build and history of each car and sprinkled in a good few stories from his years of racing.

In the new issue Harry Harilambi reviews Andy Moores awesome doco on NZ skateboarding "No More Heroes". Harry's review says it all and here's a short snippet of the movie. It's looking like the movie will be released proper in 2013, here's hoping the sooner the better cause it's wicked!

Streetrod Nationals went down in Whitianga over the weekend and the weather was damn fine.
I hit the road Thursday afternoon in Tumblin' Dice and let it roll.
Blond dog at the Red Fox.
On Friday, 200 cars cruised to Rod Millen's (or Rod Millions as I like to call him) Lead Foot Ranch - very cool place.
Steve Levien had some funcky clunky going on...
...and found some foriegn bodies that had been flying round in the cyclinder. Car is on a transporter back to Auckland.
Boat Racing - these guys look like Trouble. Final was won by Troublebound who had a close win over the local rugby club. North Shore came in third.
We stopped at this castle on the way home - complete with swords and sailors?
Kopu Tavern on the way home.
