Since we started the Motive DVD Drag Battle and GT-R Challenge, it has grown every year in both size and speed. We have long had requests by Motive DVD fans to attend the event, however, because it is run and insured as a private film shoot, we have not been able to have spectators before. We have also needed to keep results and media restricted to Motive DVDs and Motive social media.
We are excited to announce in 2015 that we will be allowing a select number of Motive DVD Guest attend the event! You will need to get in quick as there are only 30 available.
Firstly, to be eligible for a Motive DVD Guest Pass you must be a Motive DVD Subscriber.
If you are a subscriber, email email@example.com and we will organise your ticket for you.
Before purchasing, please bare in mind that Cootamundra Airport is 4 hours drive from Sydney CBD and 5 hours drive from Melbourne CBD. There is limited parking and limited hotel availability. Ticket is valid for the Saturday of the event only. A shaded viewing area is provided, however,there is no seating provided.
Please note that Motive DVD Drag Battle is NOT an event.
It is a PRIVATE FILM SHOOT and as such, the airport is treated as a film set. This means you must obey and understand the following:

Filming take priority over any guest/crew entertainment/viewing
No results can be posted or discussed post event on social media
A waiver/indemnity must be signed before entering.
Understand that motorsport is dangerous and accidents can happen
Understand Cootamundra Airport is still an ACTIVE runway and we may need to vacate the runway airway in the event of an emergency landing.

New Year’s Eve is always a time for reflection, so, lets look back at the year that was for 2014. It was a bit of a topsy turvy year for us, with some good, bad and great things and ideas happening. Here is a brief overview of what we got up to.

Before we put the exterior of JET200 together a month or so before WTAC, we spent a day filming under the skin of JET200. Part 1 was supposed to be engine and drivetrain, but changes since then means we will be re-filming it. So our first episode of “Under the Skin” of JET200 is about the suspension and brakes. NO fancy stuff here, just pure tech for those who want to know more. Enjoy.
As all Motive DVD fans would know, the Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge is one of the biggest events on the calendar, and certainly one of our favourites. This year we were competing again, debuting JET200 in Version 4 guise. This meant the build up to the event was intense! You can watch the build videos of Version 4 on our Youtube channel here:
With JET200 Version 4 complete, it was of to the Fast Fours Magazine studio for a front cover shoot with the lovely Ali Baxter. AS far as we know, its the first time a the same car has been shot three times for the cover! Not a bad little record. Keep your eyes peeled for JET200 on the cover of Fast Fours Magazine soon.
