Fuel Tank TV 2.0

2014-08-18 10.38.44

It’s been a stack of work to get to this point, but finally we are happy to launch the newest iteration of our Fuel Tank TV project. It’s bigger, better, and much more comprehensive than the site that went before it.

So what’s new? Well, for a start at the time of writing this there are 560 films playing on the site, which is over 4 time more than we had before. With a much smoother upload process, the site allows us to seamlessly pull in films from the best publishers much quicker than the last site.

The homepage will always show the latest films to be added, with the individual categories below also showing what’s new in that particular category. Once a film is chosen, the individual viewer opens, surrounded by a black border for the best viewing contrast for each film. We even have thumbs up/down icons so you can approve what’s playing.. or not!

Well, there’s lots more to be seen that we can mention here, so why not head over yourself and take a look? Don’t forget to bookmark the site. With new films added daily, and hundreds in the archives to get through, there will always be something to help get you through the morning coffee, whatever your interest.

Fuel Tank TV. Be inspired.

We’re well in to production with the next issue of Tank Moto. It’s currently sitting at more features than we’ve had in an issue before, and it was even tricky to narrow it down to those. We should have it all wrapped up within a couple of weeks, with it launching sometime mid to late September.

Dean Wallan’s ‘Flying Circus’ Topolino Altered

Story Karlee Sangster. Photography Luke Ray.

Dean Wallan was always going to own a race car. Little did he know he’d end up building one of the wildest things on wheels, but we’ll let him tell the story.

“My obsession with cars began when I was maybe five or six, I guess. There was a picture theater down the road from where I lived and my mum would take me to see the odd movie on Saturdays. Eventually, I wandered off from home by myself and would end up sitting in the movies watching all the cool 1970s car chase movies like Gumball Rally, Vanishing Point, Bullet and American Graffiti. I was hooked, it was like I was brainwashed into thinking everything should go fast.

One particular memory that lead me towards race cars was when I was around five years old. I was cruising along on my three wheeler trike just sussing out the neighbourhood and here’s this midget speedway car being push started down a side street. All of a sudden, this thing locked up the back wheels and rumbled to life and took off up the street. I had one foot in the back axle and the other foot was pushing flat out so I could catch this race car. I chased it for two blocks on my three wheeler and found the house where it lived.

I remember the gold leaf swirl finish writing on the car, it was called ‘The Golden Gun’ and Ted Tracy drove it. They couldn’t get rid of me and I became best mates with Shane, Brian Tracy’s youngest son. He was the same age as me and we would go to the speedway in Auckland to watch his brother race.” Quite the introduction to the race scene, you’d have to agree…
