WHAT sets Spr Matt Vayro apart from
the hoons out there who like to gun their
engines and leave their mark on the bitu-
men is where and when he does it.
Spr Vayro, 85 Tpt Tp at RAAF Base
Amberley, burns rubber as a sport rather than
as a way of wasting time and tyres on public
roads, and he is out to make a message of
He recently finished second in a five-
round burnout competition at Archerfield
Speedway in Brisbane -- and that was after
missing the first round because of work.
Spr Vayro is out to improve the image of
the activity and encourage people who are
inclined to indulge to do so at the proper time
"My aim is to get the word out about these
events and to get many young hoons who do
burnouts off the streets." Spr Vayro said.
After all, he said, the sums made sense.
"These events cost $35 to enter and it is bet-
ter than copping a fine and possibly losing
your car under the new hoon laws. The best
thing is, if you do really well in the competi-
tion, there is always the possibility of taking
a cash prize home.
"The Archerfield competition is great. You
can get out in a controlled environment and
show what you and your car can do," he said.
Spr Vayro, a member of the Queensland
Commodore Club, was second overall in the
V8 street class. Other classes included four-
and six-cylinder and pro-V8.
Spr Vayro said a related charity event,
Cruise 4 Charity (C4C), raised more than
$150,000 for the Starlight Foundation last
year. Events were held around Australia.
"This year the first burnout competition
was contested at a C4C event. I took this out
in my VS SS Commodore from a field of
12," he said.

THE Indian and Malaysian
Armed Forces will be the new
faces at the International Defence
Cricket Challenge (IDCC) in
Canberra in November, throwing
down the gauntlet to defending
The event, also including teams
from Australia and New Zealand,
follows the inaugural challenge
in 2007, contested by Australia,
Britain and New Zealand.
Tournament director Lt-Col
James Brownlie said the goodwill
fostered by the original tournament
would be evident this year, but
the teams from the sub-continent
would add a "different flavour".
"Their skills in slow bowling
and tremendous batting techniques
will provide a rare spectacle to
Australian services cricket," he
said. "The standard of cricket
played this year will be another
notch up from the high standards
set in 2007."
Army beat the New Zealand
Air Force for the title last time,
and Lt-Col Brownlie said the Kiwis
were looking strong again, as were
the Australian Navy and Air Force
sides. "So, when you take into
account the Indian Armed Forces
Cricket team and Royal Malaysian
Air Force Cricket team, Army
will certainly have a hard road to
achieve back-to-back victories."
About 200 players and officials
will be involved in a series of 20-20
and one-day matches, culminating
in a final series and grand final at
Manuka Oval on November 26.
Entry to the grand final is free,
although the tournament will be
asking for a gold-coin donation to
the McGrath Foundation.
On November 27, a World
Defence XI, chosen from the best
of the IDCC players, will play an
Australian Cricketers Association
masters team for the International
