The Making of a Legend
In 1983, Bandag Manufacturing Pty Ltd negotiated an agreement to sponsor Frank Gaffiero using his White Expeditor Truck as a Bandag Tyre Test Vehicle. Thus the "Bandag Bullet" was born.
Frank Gaffiero controls the wheel behind the Fastest Diesel Truck in the World and manoeuvres the eight tonne "Bullet" with tight precision in performing the world famous and spectacular 360 degree burnouts and spinouts.
There is no tougher, torture test for tyres and the Bandag retreads have never let Frank down. If they work on the Bandag bullet they can work for any other transport operator.
In 1995 the Bullet was converted to a T400 Kenworth.
Frank takes the Bandag Racing Team around Australia in his magnificent Transporter, performing and promoting the strength and durability of Bandag Retreads.
