Mate Brendon and I organised a drive for Sunday to take in the best southern roads we know. One thing ledto another and it turned into a group drive. In the end turned out a Skyline R34 GTR, BMW M3, Lambo Gallardo spider, Aston Martin V8 vantage, Porsche 911 turbo and my Audi RS4. Here are some photos.
Everyone Meeting up at a service station in the gong
Nice wool skin in the back of the Porsche for some wintery class
First stop and for breakfast at the Robertson pie shop. This was after the best drive of the day up, Macquarie pass.
The very blue Porsche,
Next stop Fitzroy falls and more chatting
Talk talk talk more chatting
Brendon got a twig stuck in his front right wheel and we had to try and fish it out before it worked it’s own way out.
Next, so a fast drive down to a dam and the excitement of the fish lift at the dam. Ash is interested here
Pretty Aussie country out the back of the dam
Last stop in Berry and time to say good byes, till next time…..
Brendon and I take the keys to Porsches flagship 911 model, the Porsche 911 Turbo. We took a look at some of the details that make up the 911 range-topper, and take it for a hill-climb drive up our usual Macquarie Pass testing road. Along the way we test out the back seats, all the cubby and storage holes and see if we can as usual â€˜get a person in the boot of a supercarâ€™.
When this carâ€™s turbo kicks in, its acceleration is as quick as the Lamborghini Gallardo I am not joking, but doesn’t sound half as good.
I have to say that for me personally I enjoy driving the 997 GT3 over this car as it feels a little more nimble and the steering a little more like my own Lotus in its direct connected feeling. But I also have to say the Turbo impressed me MORE than I thought it would. The Turboâ€™s feeling of being able to accelerate out of a corner earlier than you can with the GT3 (due to the Turbosï»¿ 4wd) is a great feeling on the road.
