Video: Anything can race on this Aussie street circuit

What a grid! Today let us transport you to the sidelines of one of Australia’s most eclectic series. Featuring everything from Porsches, Mitsubishis, BMWs and Toyotas dating from the eighties to the modern day (there’s even an early Toyota Yaris), the series welcomes “race vehicles derived from registered production automobiles, with limited modifications to improve performance and reliability”.

Among the permitted modifications are engine, brake and suspension adjustments, engine swaps (from the same model) and aero body tweaks. The result is a field full of furious machines, with drivers from a wide variety of backgrounds and varying ages. It’s perhaps one of Australia’s most accessible race series, and the grid is all the better for it.

Enjoy this colourful race around Adelaide’s street circuit back in 2017. Listen to the cacophony of the varied powertrains and watch as the drivers fight tooth and nail to get ahead – sometimes even spinning and shunting one another.

Welcome to Goodwood Elevenses, a mid-morning helping of motoring-related amusement to help break up your day. Watch the last video: The angriest Yugo in the world
