A number of podium finishes at Oran Park and SMSP with my previous black M3 and co-driving a VT ClubSport for a couple of years. Particular favourite was the Day/Night Meetings at Oran park and achieved quite a few podiums in the dark with my M3.
Love competing – from road racing bikes to preparing and racing an outstanding car. Improved Production is a great category that covers a variety of makes and models of vehicles and usually puts on a terrific race for spectators.
