"This is Al McClure to Perth Motorplex Mission Control - we have lift off"

Perth racer Al McClure tries to orbit his supercharged altered at the recent Goldenstate Championships in this spectacular video by Owen Ducker.

The re-entry looked a little rough. 

In seriousness, the bottom wheelie-bar bracket failed sending McClure - who was unhurt - on his vertical launch. The chassis took a bit of a pounding with a damaged sump and engine plate, with the rest of the chassis needing a thorough inspecting.
