Today we welcomed a visit to our shop by our local member for Hillarys, Caitlin Collins MLA and her secretary Holly. Both expressed sincere excitement towards our project and we hope to be able to work closer with our State Government to run our race in our home state of Western Australia. We plan on exploring two possible, yet unchartered race sites in our states north in May. We are also working with the UAE, USA, South Africa and Queensland investigating the possibility of using any one of these locations, but our venue of choice is our home state, Western Australia. ...

This magnificent project needs serious WA and Federal govt backing. Just watch all the pollies come out of the woodwork for a photo op with Rosco when he achieves his goal! 🇦🇺
Its an incredible venture, love it and goodspeed
Is this what they used to hold at lake dumbleyung 🙂
I've been lucky enough to be in there.
Love ya work Rossco, WA be great!!
If you run in WA I'm coming to watch. Yeehar. Go
It would be a hard task to park up at the shopping centre.!
If you achieve your goal Rosco will that then be a new world land speed record?
You could take it to Lake Gairdner in Feb?
The government should recognise your commitment and effort, and secure AI2 and AI3 as museum pieces.
Hope in Nevada
i hope it can be done in WA . go get it team
You guys are awesome.
Please try to give us plenty of notice if you run in Oz. Would love to have a cool story for my grandkids when I’m older and say “I was there and man was it cool”
I would love to be there for you run Rosco
That would be amazing to run in WA!! 🇦🇺
Onya Rossco !

Rosco, we all know lake Gairdner being close to sea level is the best place in the world for a naturally aspirated or forced induction vehicle to go fast due to the thicker atmosphere. But as your vehicle is neither is somewhere with higher elevation eg Bonneville better for less drag coefficient? Salt condition dependent of course.
We gave our favourite charity "Making Life Better" a visit to our workshop with me as tour guide, so it could be auctioned. The winning bid party got a first hand view into the operation and design of our Aussie Invader 5R Supersonic LSR car. Gary and his good buddies grabbed this opportunity to catch an insight into our amazing project. It was a great morning with lots of questions, laughs and genuinely great folk. We hope to catch up with these great supporters of MLB again real soon! ... See MoreSee Less
We have decided to sell the iconic and much treasured wheels from Australia’s Record setting car's Aussie Invader 2 and 3! These wheels were used on both cars, when Aussie Invader 2 set the Australian land speed record, and when Aussie Invader 3 reached a peak speed 638 mph (1,026 km/h) in 1996. At that time this speed was in excess of the current record of Richard Noble of 633 mph, only bad weather and poor salt condition stopped us going faster and backing it up to claim a record.
The funds raised from their sale will assist us to perform high-pressure blow-down tests on our latest creation, Aussie Invader 5R's rocket engine systems in the new year. These wheels are a unique example of Australian auto-racing history, ingenuity and engineering prowess. These wheels cost in excess of $30k each to produce (nearly 30 years ago... a lot more now!), and we believe they are the fastest wheels ever to race on salt!
We are hoping to attract a corporate entity or entities to purchase these unique wheels, with their custom made stands and plagues and would look fantastic as a unique foyer display or corporate centrepiece.
If you know of any potential interested parties, please share this post. The price is A$25k for each wheel. Genuine enquiries please contact... email@example.com. ... See MoreSee Less
Aussie Invader - World Land Speed Record Challenger Rossco I remember you coming into the engineering company I worked for in Welshpool 30 years ago to see if we had a lathe that would spin fast enough to run the bearings in I was only 16 at the time 🙏🏼💙
I truly hope you find a buyer, this is such a awesome project it is worthy of a major national corporation to get on board with some serious financial support. Merry Christmas to you and your entire team Rosco and I look forward to 2022 with great anticipation.
Should be in an art museum. Good luck Aussie invader team.
I would have them but can’t find any remoulds to fit these rims
Danny Plecas don't even think about asking......
Warren Bishop...Hell of a garden ornament!!!!
Anyone want to set up a go fund me to try to get Atleast one to the Whiteman park motor museum?
Will they fit a ‘94 Magna?
Ian Wood go on.
A friend from facebook recommended this Cryptocurrency financial broker Amiliapinksnel Rose . Her trade is faster, reliable and easy to understand as every process is carefully explained. In all my years as an investor i will have to share this recommendation to everyone to acknowledge the work of Mrs Rose and her team, i got the Bitcoin deposited in my wallet just as promised.

Out of my price range, but damn….super cool….😎
