So what is HWY? it is a car and bike enthusiast club that is rapidly growing in size! Since november 2012 the group known as HWY has been creating a new type of car meet scene. One that does not discriminate on car or bike type and the best thing it’s open to all! The major difference with this car club is that it’s a Charity organisation.
When Calder Park thunderdome is on offer who would say no? So without hesitation Primal Motor club jumped on the opportunity and quickly organized a grass roots drift day. With only 30 spots on offer the event was extremely quick to sell out.
Upon arriving I was completely shocked by the turn out. There were so many nice cars and almost 90% of the people had driven to the event in the car they were competing in. Now that’s dedication! Read more

So just picture yourself in the following situation: Your Dad owns and runs one of the most reputable suspension businesses in the country and specialises in making cars corner faster and smoother. How would you rebel against him and the family business?
Well it would seem that the best way would be to purchase a 1985 Toyota Corona and then taking full advantage of your Dad’s knowledge and his generous parts catalogue to slam it to the ground!!
Jokes aside though, Chris (the owner of this fine piece of machinery) actually works along side his Dad, Brett, for Shockworks. They are a local company pushing the boundaries of what shock absorbers can do in terms of both comfort and performance!
This Corona is just a way for Chris to have some fun.

It was that time of year again when the Bosch Australia Rally Championship rolls into town, this year bringing with it some new cars, like this FWD Mazda 2.

Unfortunately I showed up to the dyno day very late, after spending to much time at motoclassica i finally arrived. I was surprised and happy to see that there were still cars waiting to get on the dyno so late in the day.
It seems the shaky Melbourne car scene is on the mend after a successful and relaxed JDMST end of month meet last weekend, held at the On The Run Motorsport workshop in Melbourne’s south east.
With the day kicking of bright and early at 9am and continuing until the early afternoon cars came and went all day long, with around 50+ cars mixing it up over the duration of the day.
The forecast for the weekend was looking pretty grim, yet seeing as how this is the final event of the VicDrift championship for the year, so the weather was not going to put me off and hopefully the car folk of Melbourne would feel the same. As I got out of my car on that Saturday morning, the pro-class group were already lining up for their first run on the track. Read more
It was a Thursday evening and the great kebab night was upon us, Facebook was abuzz and the organizer had promised that this kebab joint was the shiiit!

Many members of the SAU made a whole weekend out of the event which meant not much sleep but lots of driving and plenty of crazy nights!
