Skaife has driven in Le Mans before! And Murphy...

Post by Admin_Holden on Fri Dec 21, 2007 3:23 pm

Yes... PB is not the only Oz V8 driver to drive in Le Mans. Did you know Mark Skaife drove a Lister Storm in 1997, only to break the gearbox (he does it all the time...)? But so did Greg Murphy, and acheived a better result with Bill Farmer. He finished 2nd in class in the 1996 race with a Porsche!
As you all know David Brabham, who makes cameo appearances for FPR in 2005-06, won his class in his Aston Martin this year!

Yet all FPR drivers since 2003 have had (or had the chance) a drive in the Aston.... so it ain't just MS and GM that've driven Circuit De la Sarthe! Razz

...at Sebring though. I've had a look at the track on GT4 and it is simply SENSATIONAL!

If you think that's bad, try the Nurburgring. Apparently it takes about 2 hours to complete a lap.

Damn... Oh well, I want Tasman merchandise instead!
(Who cares, I got my rim from Adelaide '05! Remember when Jase hit Ritter? That right rear I got in my bedroom!)
Now we go from Le Mans to my most hated thing... shopping!

So am I.
Anyway, let's hope we get our own V8 Holden fired up for a day with V8 SuperChat sponsorship of course...

If we have one more member we can have a three car team... lol!
