Excalibur, Caviar and The Devil.
Surfing the internet looking for great examples classic Holdens, Fords and Valiants.
2017 V8 Holden Ute Magnum, Manual Transmission. Uniquely Australian and a fabulously entertaining drive. Best and last Australian car made.
1980 XD Ford Falcon. So modern and angular at the time. All-Australian design.
Derums stepped out of full-time driving last year and leases his car out to Williams Race Tech, which is currently driven by Graham Edwards. Derums will drive V8 Ute veteran Charlie Kovac’s Holden for the round. He is now planning to release a new Mango Racing vehicle to be raced in the coming year.
The racing career of Yanis Derums.
Wakefield Park 2007: pole position and round winner at ahigh profile, national event.
Big crash at the Hidden Valley race track in Darwin in 2004 where the car flipped upside down, and I was trapped with fuel dripping on me.
Wakefield Park NSW because its good fun goat track type of circuit. Also, lot of success in V8 Utes, Mirages, MG’s and Daewoos.
Bathurst: too scary if you want to produce a good lap time. I’d much rather watch than drive. As such, I sponsored a better driver with great results!
2007: I was at my most competitive and have steadily gone downhill after that!
When I was about 10 after watching the famous Allan Moffat/ Collin Bond formation One/ Two 1977 Bathurst win.
