Deadlock is our main feature production, which we will be rolling out in four parts (along with bonus features) over the coming months.
Filmed in various outback locations throughout Western Australia, Deadlock presents extreme drivers doing everything with their cars from donuts and burnouts to demolition derbies and bonnet sledding.
Most of the cars filmed in this production were unlicensed boonga cars that were purchased for between $50 and $100, which is less than a good night out at the pub, which, incidentally, is where the Deadlock crew invariably ended up after a hard day of thrashing cars.
Most of the footage seen in Part One was filmed during the WASM Rally, a no holds barred, no beg your pardons event where the boongas are let loose around an improvised rally course in a competition to produce the fastest time.
One of the main side-events of this day is the experience of bonnet sledding, where seasoned extremists ride at high speed on an old car bonnet that is tied to the back of a moving car.
The film also mixes in footage from many other events such as the Rambler's burnout in reverse gear during the local speedway half-time show and the massively air-cooled Cortina ripping around the back tracks of Wedgefield.
One notable event of the film is the incredible dust missile which was created when bush-bashing an old hatchback around the fringe of a remote salt lake. The car was roaring up a ramp when it hit a mound of dust at the top which launched it as a missile of dust and dirt with the car following in its wake.
Thanks go to the Andrews' Speedway Super Sedan, which in all likelihood is the only real serious race car to appear in this film. This car sports a 350 Chev V8 engine and the film-makers were given the opportunity to put it through its paces around an old salt lake.
A follow on from Part One this film features more action from the WASM rally and other events, but with more carnage, bigger jumps and destruction derby exploits entering the fray.
The film also shows the overheating aftermath of the massive Rambler burnout with the most timely bonnet closing. It is only moments after the bonnet is closed that coolant can be seen exploding through the engine bay.
One day in the middle of an old forest the Hills Rally event was staged. Again the Deadlock crew thrashed their unlicensed boongas around the track, this time joined in by dirtbike riders and other eager competitors.
Burnouts became the order of the day soon enough with a full burnout session being staged during the afternoon. Smoke drifted lazily through the trees as Kingswoods, Falcons, Commodores and other cars spun their tyres to oblivion.
Part Four Coming Soon...
