Wellington is the air strip isnt it ? I remember getting dragged out to Casterton street drags to find out it was an actual street road with no run off between two farms and watched a methanol burning HG sedan giving it hell against a run what you brought rival 304 nitrous HJ sedan with the local constabulatory blocking off the section of road for the weekend,cars that should of been at Portland strip than a country backroad 200km away ,insane racing even crazier crowd !
