We were all set to head off to the stark beauty of Lake Gairdner salt lake for the annual hot rod race for a shoot of speeding metal and burning rubber on salt. Then, for the first time in years, it rained. The salt lake races were off.

So we cast our eye to Coober Pedy, for a car race of a different kind. It seems on a salt lake, or on a speedway in town, either way hot rod racing rarely turns out as you expect.
