    There is a group called TORC www.torc.org.au/ who have a dirt track in Kyton that I can get on to cheap, or the Portland sand dunes. Type in Portland dunes in Youtube for some videos.

    At this stage it looks to be a surprisingly cheap hobby by motorsport standards.

    This is a pic of what it used to look like about 10 years ago:



    I am going to do it a little different but it should look quite similar.

    Today I also had the entertaining idea of how this would go on a track with slicks on it, would it roll around a lot? or spin like crazy at higher speeds? Sure would lift get peoples attention if I took it to Winton
