Despite the torrential downpour from the skies above, West Oz managed to raise more than ever before. A total of 604 cars rolled out under dark clouds and gale force winds, to band together at the Perth MotorPlex to raise an impressive $26,884.40. This year the quality of vehicles participating in the cruise was second to none. Including a record 59 VIP entrants, the largest number of VIP’s across the country so far. The cruise was led by Cronic Customs’s Datsun 510, which is an outstanding example of the flourishing street car scene in WA. Lowe Fabrications donated a number of custom made trophies, which were handed out to their deserving winners.
Originally planned as an outdoor event, the monsoonal weather forced BYE Performance to shift the dyno into the scrutineering sheds, keeping the rollers dry and the horsepower flowing. Jose from ITP Race Cars and his Supra took out the first round of the Liqui-Moly Hunt for Horsepower with a whopping 775rwhp.
Unfortunately Cruise for Charity’s first ever Smashing Tyres burnout demonstration couldn’t be moved inside and had to be postponed due to excessive rain. You can see the boys and their tyre-frying beasts in action on the 1st of October and again on the 19th of November at MotorPlex, with bidding still open – click here for more details
