a woman racer who was once a man!!!


and coming second place to that, a SA racer, coming down off the rostrum at the 1999 maitland offroad nationals, about ready to try and deck todd trower (who's also a cop and built like a absolute tank) after an indiscretion with him during the race.

This guy was known to get a little bit hot headed and has since been banned from a few tracks here and there. Serve's him right too.

Funniest thing i've seen was on a windy day and one of the tarps wasn't bolted down properly and the wind picked it up, Went OVER the top of the race control shed and landed in the middle of the race track.

It was so funny hey texan boy He knows who he is hehehehe.

A friend of mine's F201 done in Jaguar colours/logos start smoking due to shorted out wires. Reminded everyone on the track that day of the real Jaguar F1 car.

Any Mini race.

... more specifically, Mini race at TFTR where someone's entered 1 lone Micro RS4. Talk about a fox & hounds race!!

The little yellow Viper TQs and heads up the final grid... until one of the Minis catches up, runs it over and its DNF for the little yellow thing.

please make this story perfect by telling me it was a young kid that has his hobby funded like a f1 team by his father!

i remember a very seasoned electric racer doing a similar dummy spit at EC for one of the MECAS i think it was a wheel issue that was the insitigation to the "camel's back" breaking.

i also was told of a guy who was marshelling at mbank once and a 1;8th scale on the straight at full flight, knocked him of his feet and he landed flat, face first, on the ground.

personally, i love the young spoilt kids dummy spits....YOU JUST KNOW THAT THEY AINT GONNA LAST LONG IN THE HOBBY WITH THAT ATTITUDE!

how about this one; around 2years ago, at my first state titles for nitro, alex k was arguing with stewart grant about weather his 20mm fronts (they looked like setup wheels hahaha) should be allowed or not....ok, so it doesn't sound funny but picture a stocky guy arguing with a big bloke ...ok so it's really only funny to me

funny or sad, not sure what it falls into, the use of illegal recreational drugs to "calm yourself down". synonymous with one racer.

The best thing I have ever seen was last month at Castle Hill offroad track.

I got bored and cabletied everybodys feet to the drivers stand.

Nothing funnier than watching 8 guys try to leave the stand at the same time.

Watching your own car flip and land back on it's wheels after 5 full rolls

What took the cake was that one night...when starting out..in novice.. i was knocked around...saying "bugger this" i decided to go in reverse around the track..not only did i keep up with the other racers...when it was time to turn around...it was half way through a reverse 180 the car picked up...stood on its back (therefore the car is vertical now) and flips and lands on its wheels in the right direction. Alot of claps...unfortunately it was more ass than class

Go the TA03F for that..
