We cannot stress the importance of this enough!
Here at Perth’s Finest we are somewhat overly passionate about motorsport, cars and all things automotive, from the massive V8’s to modified JDM weapons – but there is a dark side to the industry that we cannot ignore.
A dark side that is filled with in-experienced drivers, unroadworthy vehicles and just plain recklessness that often leads to injury and loss of life.

Beat the Heat
Beat the Heat (WA) was designed to build alliances between young drivers and the Police by using the common interest of motorsport to provide opportunities to educate young drivers. It is hoped that this interaction will bring about changes in attitudes that will encourage responsible driver behaviour and acceptance of the road rules in the community.
Beat the Heat (WA) Inc was formed in 2005 by the former members of the defunct WA Police Tango 1 Police Drag Racing Team under the continued management and guidance of Sergeant Mike Pearson. Beat the Heat (WA) Inc is a 100% community based anti-street racing program and is a registered incorporated ‘Not for Profit’ association in Western Australia. This ensures the longevity of the program.

The main aim of the Beat the Heat (WA) Inc is to reduce the incidents of illegal street racing on Western Australian roads by encouraging participation in the sport of drag racing in a safe and controlled environment.
