Remembering A Motoring Legend

24. January 2014 14:27 by Rare Spares in Rare Spares  //  Tags: , ,   //   Comments (0)

Rare Spares was honoured to announce that the late John Taverna was the winner of the Summernats 27 Rare Spares Legend Award for 2014.

In front of thousands of appreciative fans, John Taverna’s partner accepted the Rare Spares Legend award on John’s behalf at the Saturday evening Supercruise.

John Taverna was a street machine and drag racing legend in Australia, having built many famed drag cars and street machines that graced magazine covers, raced and turned up at shows all over the country and internationally. Two of John Taverna’s most recognisable cars were the JD Camira drag car and the pink 67 Camaro with the number plate CHASIS.

John also contributed greatly to drag racing though his role as the Victorian Divisional Director and later the National Deputy Director for ANDRA as well as his years spent as a Summernats judge.

 John will be sorely missed by everyone in the street machine world and Rare Spares are proud to have John Taverna as one of the Rare Spares Legends. 

 

Riding With A Burnout World Champion

24. January 2014 14:16 by Rare Spares in Rare Spares  //  Tags: ,   //   Comments (0)

Ever wanted to know how it feels to be riding alongside a burnout world champion?

Danny Gibson was our lucky Rare Drive competition winner and spoke with us about riding shotgun with Peter Gray at Summernats 27

 Danny used to watch the burnout competitions when he was a kid so had a rough idea of what he was getting himself into.  

“It was wild. It was something that you can’t really describe; it was like thunder in your whole body.”

Not only was Danny riding shotgun with Peter Gray as he performed a show stopping burnout, Debbie Gray joined in with another Team Gray car, to double the spectacle and smoke in the burnout pit.  “You couldn’t see your own hands, but every time you could see, you could see that the other car was so close.”

“Debbie and Peter are both unbelievably good drivers and very confident in their own abilities.”

“I’ve never won anything before so it was very exciting. The experience was something that you couldn’t pay for – it was unbelievable.”

“I had a fun at Summernats overall – They’ve cleaned it up a lot which has unfortunately cleaned up some of the fun as well, but it was good and it has removed some of the more unwanted guests. I thought it was a lot more grown up and controlled this year.”

“I’ve entered the Nats’ half a dozen times myself. I’ve got a 77’ Torana which I spend all my spare time working on which I’ve had for 15 years.”
