This is the first road-legal customer Tesla Roadster Sport to be delivered in Australia. It’s been a long hard struggle for Simon Hackett to get this baby on the road, now that it’s here you can expect to see – but not hear – it cruising Adelaide streets and going for sporty runs through the hills.

The official press release goes out tomorrow, but expect these cars to set you back over $200k.

DEFENDING CHAMPION WEEKS BACK IN THE CLASSIC ADELAIDE LEAD

DEFENDING champion Kevin Weeks and his 1974 Porsche took the outright lead at the halfway point in the Classic Adelaide rally after a simple part failure ended a potential event-winning run by Holden rival Steve Glenney today.

Weeks and co-driver Bec Crunkhorn, who had been running second to Glenney almost since yesterday’s start, assumed the lead on the sixth of eight closed-road special stages run in the Fleurieu region.

They hold a comfortable lead of almost two minutes over South Australian Porsche crew Hamish Gibson and Ben Scott, in a 1980 HDT Holden Commodore.

Roger Paterson and Paul Whatnell, in a car similar to Weeks’, are third.

Gary Tierney Classic Adelaide 2009 Porsche 911

Discussion in the Classic Adelaide forums.

Gary Tierney (driver) and David Carra (navigator) have been tragically killed near Forreston in the Hills during the Classic Adelaide car rally event, after their 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RS left the road and hit a tree.

They were travelling on Norseworthy Road in Forreston near Gumeracha just after 3:30pm, when the car left the track and smashed into a tree, killing both the driver and passenger.

Mr Tierney was a highly-rated tarmac rally competitor and the pair took third place in their Porsche in Targa West, near Perth, in late August.

Aston Martins wallpaper

By Ash Simmonds.

Aston Martin have just released two new pieces of rolling art loaded with V12 warheads, and two of the first in Australia are now on their promo tour around the country to get bums in seats.

Solitaire Automotive are the Adelaide dealers, and invited us on an Aston Martin drive event to properly experience the new models, and have a play with the existing line-up.

We turned up around 9:30am to be greeted by Louise, Nigel, and four beasts of Britain.

By Ash Simmonds.

The Supercar Club needed a car relocated to Adelaide on the big AFL Grand Final day, everyone else in Oz was at a bbq to watch a bunch of blokes dressed in pretty colours run around a meadow trying to hug each other, so I got stuck with the job.

Lucky it’s not too ugly.
