Today's Photo of the Day features a 1956 Volkswagen Beetle nick named 'Wild Bug', seen here at the Perth Motorplex's pre-season test day. Built in the United States and raced over there since 2004 by a number of different drivers, Wild Bug was brought to Australia by Rose and Ian Merrett, but not before Rose managed to get a couple of laps under her belt on the strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Rose has also raced this car at Warwick in Queensland and now this crazy bug has made it's way to Western Australia with a new owner.

Photo of the Day - October 14th, 2018

Today's Photo of the Day comes from Bali, Indonesia. This is from the Tegenungan Falls area, and while not the main waterfall here, this is a far more complex set of waterfalls than the much bigger and more easily spotted main waterfall. From the top of the steps down to the bottom of the Tegenungan Falls, it's possible to go directly to the falls and miss these ones all together, but if you take the path to the left, you'll pass these waterfalls on the way down. The Tegenungan Falls are in Kemenuh, approximately 20 kilometers north of Sanur.

Here's Top Fuel Motorcycle ride Benny Stevens warming the rear tyres on the Saturday of the two day test held this weekend last year. Unfortunately the weather has forced the track to cancel today's testing, but at this stage, the second test day scheduled for tomorrow (Sunday) is still going ahead as planned. Head on down to the Motorplex to check it out.
