When you win the lotto and Centrelink is about to take your dole away so you have to show them you work. How do you even get a tow bar for a Lambo? Respect. “It’s not practical,” they said. “No boot space, bloody hopeless,” they said. “Can’t go piggin’ in a lambo, no place for the dogs,” they said. Sure showed those c*nts.

Graham was created as part of a new Australian road safety campaign by the Transport Accident Commission. He was designed by sculptor Patricia Piccinini, a leading trauma surgeon, and a road safety engineer, who modified him based on their own knowledge of traffic accidents.

“This built-not-bought Civic is a labour of love that’s been hand made and engineered to be as fast, functional and fun as possible. I’m guessing this will inspire you to get a project car too!” – Car Throttle.
“The Raceism Clique’s main focus has always been peace, love, unity and having fun. You can see this the whole way through the weekend. Even though we can’t speak a word of Polish, we never felt unwelcome at any point. Everyone was there for the same reason, everyone had the same interests. We were kindly welcomed by all of the people that we met. This is one of the things the Raceism Event does best.” – @ilovebassuk.
The Through The Roof video was directed by Kess Broekman-Dattner and Oh Yeah Wow, the creative powerhouse behind some of the most innovative videos in the country for such artists as Gotye, Bombay Bicycle Club and The Paper Kites. At first glance, the video could be a snapshot of colourful muscle-car culture, but in the plumes of smoke and burning rubber, something otherworldly unfolds.
The Ford Focus RS may be the king of hot hatches, but the car is garnering a lot of negative attention in Australia because of its Drift Mode. Despite its name, the mode doesn’t make every driver into a Formula Drift pro, but does help drivers get sideways in a massive cloud of tire smoke. Safety advocates in Australia that are up in arms over the fact that drivers could use the mode on public roads. Australia has some of the strongest laws against “hooning” on public roads in the world and has now turned its wrath on Ford’s latest hatchback.
Team Betsafe, one of the Gumball Rally’s longest standing participants, let an F1 car loose on the streets of Manchester in front of shocked local residents. The F1 car – named Betsafe BGF1 and driven by an anonymous driver – deafened the streets of Manchester as it roared past local residents, as the driver waved to other cars on the road and even politely stopping to let a hoard of school children cross the road.
