The members of Jap Torque were present at the third RWYB of the season. The event was going to be a bit special, with a good weather forecast and a few members wanting to go, we headed off in convoy to the sunny Pod. In the line up was Steve and Jenny in the CRX VTEC, Myself and Paul in my Integra R, Scott Carey in his Toyota Starlet, John Haynes and Dad Mike in the 16v CRX, Richard Blann in his blue Civic VTi, Dave Bowan with the Corolla GTi and Matt Steel in his black Civic VTi. With everyone registered the runs began. The cues were large but it was worth it because the great, sticky track at santa provided good traction. More information on major events.
Results of the race
The strip was being ripped up by every kind of car, from Micra’s to Viper’s, from scooters to R1’s. The quickest of the day being a 6.9sec @ 164mph (eeek) although the top fuel car would have beaten that easily if he kept power on for more than just a half of the strip.He still managed a 7.9 sec run and set every car alarm off within 2 miles.It was hard to pick a car of the day but, with a stock viper running 12.4 secs coming close, my winner went to this mad Fiat 126 sporting a 5.7ltr V8 chevy engine. In case you were wondering, it runs 11’s without getting out of breath.
Another insane car was this street legal Renault 5 turbo with one more engine than most. The greedy man has put, not one, but TWO 250hp engines in his little bean tin that is the 5 turbo. He did one run all day and got 12.1 secs.
The cars of note from Jap Torque were of course Steves still very quick CRX VTEC, Matt’s Civic VTi but especially John’s 16V CRX which, with a 15.3 run, is nothing short of sensational from a non-VTEC CRX. So, needles to say, we kicked some serious French arse (again) and a fantastic day was had by all.

Australian duo Craig Anderson and Michael Byrne produced a superb quinella in round four of the American 125cc Motocross Championship at Southwick, Massachusetts, on June 8.
The Yamaha-mounted Anderson, a multiple Australian motocross champion, garnered his first win on American soil in race two, after Byrne had earlier performed the same feat in the opening instalment. However, Anderson’s greater consistency – he was second in the opening race – saw him take the overall from Byrne (1-4) and Yamaha rider Brock Sellards (9-2).
With the 125cc title now at third distance, the two Australians are firmly entrenched in the top 10 – Byrne in sixth on 93pts, and Anderson two positions behind on 87. Additionally, South Australian Brett Metcalfe lies in joint 10th on 72pts.
Meanwhile, in the premier 250cc class, Newcastle’s Chad Reed (Yamaha) – himself a member of the 125cc alumni – lost his hold on second in the title to Honda’s Kevin Windham after moderate 7-5 finishes.
Following the drought in South Australia and in particular in the Mannum area which resulted in the cancellation of that venue, we decided to look for another location with greener pasture and moisture to run round 2. The search ended following a meeting with Graham Boyd of Graham Boyd Promotions in Newcastle. Graham has had discussions with the relevant peoplewhere we were headed….
