    Sydney, Australia.

    Various shots of men at work on their model motorboats as they tune up the engines. M/S as one speeds around a pool. Slow motion gives a better view. M/S line of model racing cars, a man tunes one up and uses a pipette to fill the engine with petrol. Various shots, some in slow motion, as it speeds around the circuit which runs around the pool. Various shots as the boat races the car. Some good comical shots as the cameraman speeds up to try and follow the two, and the spectators get dizzy watching them go around. M/S as cameraman gives up in the end and holds his head.
