HEY, loved the Drag Challenge story, blokes (SM, Jan 17). It isnt something Id ever do myself, but as someone who does a fair number of family road trips in an old car each year an HQ Statesman I can relate to the desire to leave the city behind and cruise through our great country in a car that is both challenging and rewarding to put big miles on.

I also enjoyed reading about the variety of different set-ups that people run, from the twinturbo big-blocks through to old mate in his crossflow-powered XF ute. Cant wait to see what turns up this year; it would be great to see an HQ-WB Stato in the mix!
