If you don't know Mick from Mick's Motorsport personally, we're sure you've heard his name mentioned around some of the top performing street/drag/drift vehicles around Australia. Unfortunately, on the 4th of December 2016, Mick was involved in a serious Jet-ski accident on the Georges River, that not only changed his life but the life of his family forever. Michael sustained very serious injuries in this freak accident which has left him with a broken neck and crushed spine and no feeling to his body from the belly button down.

The ability to vary an engine’s compression ratio has been a “holy grail” quest of engine engineers for decades, because “one size” of compression ratio cannot possibly fit all the operating conditions required of a typical internal combustion-powered vehicle. Saab tried hinging the upper half of the engine in 2000, various other inventors have envisioned racks and pinions to vary the piston position relative to stroke, Lotus suggested a movable piston in the cylinder head to vary the clearance volume, and much more recently FEV demonstrated an eccentric piston-pin that provided two distinct connecting rod lengths (and hence compression ratios) while an outfit called Lugo Developments showed a crazy cammed-crankshaft concept.
Firstly, we'd like to thank everybody for their support, who gave a gold coin donation, in return for GCG stickers and patches at the recent World Time Attack Challenge. The total donations were given to the Cancer Council, which helps to fund cancer research, prevention and support programs for people affected by cancer.
Over the weekend, we raised an incredible $212.50!
Did you know that 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85? But thanks to the support of generous donors like you, almost 30% more Australians are alive today who would have otherwise died from cancer over 20 years ago. Donations from the community help to fund continued investment into research which has resulted in improvements in cancer prevention, screening and treatments.
