A rooftop passenger competes in an unofficial auto race. Every November, thousands of fans attend Australia's biggest motor racing event, the Bathurst 1000. Some create their own particular brand of motorized entertainment nearby. Driving at speed around a mud track, they smash into other cars and trees until the vehicles are so badly damaged that they are abandoned and burnt.
