The Winner: Inspired by the amount of incense available in Venice Beach the Nag Champ lit it's own sticks as it sped to victory. The long wheel base is basically the secret as usual. Good weight too. Both the LAPD and the LAFD drove past and we were thankful they didn't smell the unique mixture of rocket smoke and nag champa incense.
Being away from the safety of Sydney Rocketcar Day you forget how important it is to find a cul de sac (not too much traffic, particularly LAPD) flat road (not to much camber) and shade (it was pretty hot on the street).
