Drag racing in Australia is a thing of beauty. Long after the race winners were presented, records reported and incidents chronicled, there remains hours and hours of footage. Leave it to our lead videographer Jake Simmons to study the footage and present angles and visuals we often take for granted.

Here's his story, we think you will enjoy hearing it as much as we've enjoyed bringing it.
