The Golden States championships are a drag racing meeting at the Perth Motorplex featuring rounds of the ANDRA Pro Series Top Doorslammer and Top Bike championships. Over 2 days, around 250 drag racing teams hit the black stuff.
Jay Upton returned to form in Top Bike, running 3 passes below the national ET record over the course of the weekend and winning the final.
In Top Doorslammer, Maurice Fabietti debuted a new paint scheme promoting the new Holden Trade Club program and stunned the crowd by top qualifying with a 5.84 second pass. During elimnations, Ben Bray fronted up to the first pass against John Zappia and the pair ran one of the closest ever passes in the class with Zappia losing on the holeshot with a 5.83 second pass against Bray's 5.88 seconds. The final saw Robin Judd taking a 5.87 second win over Maurice Fabietti after Fabietti shut down on the start line.

Now over a year later, with many distractions along the way, the Supra has been back on the road for a couple of short stints, but is still not sorted, and is back off the road with a starter motor problem.
Whenever I see this photo, I'm reminded to do some more work on the car, and also how much I want to respray the car so that the whole thing looks as good as the rear bumper does in this shot.

How cool is this? I love having one of my own photos, of a world famous landmark, hanging in my lounge room. And now that I've got it, I have a thirst for more canvas prints to put on the walls around here.
The main reason I haven't done it until now, is that a lot of my favourite photos were photos I'd take of racers at the Motorplex, and if I were to get a canvas of one of them to hang on the wall, it'd feel like I was playing favourites.
