Hey guys

I did a 1/2 day safe driving course the other day at Lakeside here in Brissy, and for part of it I got to drive around the track.

The best thing though, Craig Lowndes jumped in with me, then after a few laps showed me how to really drive my stocko BA around! That man can drive, I've never seen anyone driving with one hand drift my car around a track like it was nothing... top driver, top bloke also, even signed my dash! Howzat!

Best of all I got in car video!

Yeah yeah, Im braggin a bit, but it was the best day I've had in a loooong time.

I'd recommend doing something like this again, maybe with a group of guys from here? Anyone interested?

Cheers!
Luke

Sorry about the slight delay

I've only had 1 day off at work for the past 3 weeks, heres the pic of the dash.

I don't really have anywhere to put the video as I have 2 problems, 1. I don't have space on the net for X amount of video space. 2. I only have dial up...

Cheers big ears!
