    A Taste Of Austrailian Offshore Racing History...

    ... https://youtu.be/dOA4SXSTD7Y … 1980 Aussie World Championship - Melbourne … The quality, subject matter & narration was excellent. Better than ours, stateside, if you ask me. Enjoy.

    I was out there watching that
    was an impressive event with some teams bringing mono's and cats
    I was gobsmacked to see container loads of engines and drives from some teams
    When Faya opened the taps at the end it was 20mph faster then anything else

    Filming, sound, production of this film much superior to american counterparts of 1980. Very well done.
