The Shahin family (Peregrine Corporation) have been very successful and it's been great to have them "keep the big guys honest", my biggest fear for SA is that now they have become bigger than Coles (Shell), Woolies (Caltex) and every other outlet in SA, who's going to keep them honest?

Talk is there will be a 2nd V8Supercars round scheduled for SA by 2016.

We never could get the F1's back from Melbourne, if we stole the MotoGP that would more than make up for it  Wink

I will be looking at this progress in time on this forum,and if it gets up im coming home for the opening to show you all good time and a very quick rebuilt bandit12...if my wife lets me hee hee!

oh and ive gotta add this, I guess tony grosser from American power wont be taking part in any of the drag racing festivities...id be thinking the sa gov will never let him  out of the can,seeing as though he had a massive brain fade and thought it would be a good idea to hold the police at bay for a day or two on his former property at murray bridge.

I can't recall who wanted to build that one, I'm pretty sure it wasn't the Shahin's though

Frank didn't have bikes, he had a '34 (IIRC?) Ford Hot Rod, was a scrutineer, worked in the "hole in the wall" at drag meetings, was on the SA Street Rod federation committee, member of Ram rodders etc etc
