Sitting somewhere under a Bahn Brenner supercharger, but somewhere over any more Hot Wheels, we have a new entrant on the Christmas list. Anatoly Arutunoff, who was a race driver in the ’60s and ’70s, has written an autobiography. Anyone who has read an interview with the man will quickly point to his excellent humour, knowledge and storytelling ability, so there’s little doubt this will be a fantastic read. That, and the fact that the man raced during the time when racing was still unhobbled by restrictions and politics, and raced against the likes of Bondurant, Gurney and Shelby, means this is a must have for Hoons and Hoonlings everywhere.

    Can somebody explain why the helicopter has both skids and wheels? I guess the skids might be deflated floats.

      So you can move the thing around the ramp. You jack it up, put the wheels down and you can roll it into the hangar. You'd have to be a seriously badass pilot to FLY it into the hanger, wouldn't you think?

        ROFL! That makes sense, I guess…
        I think that's one of the things you don't really think about when looking at helicopters.
