Top Gear Australia Series 2 – Sanna got on screen, again!

A month ago we went along to the filming of the 2nd series of Top Gear Australia as the 1st series was a laugh to go to. It turned out to be the final episode of the series so there were some reasonably good stuff featured in the episode. This time the group was Sanna and I and friend Cameron from work.


There’s Sanna on the left right at the front the sneaky bugger

Cameron is blessed with height so he was on screen for most of the audience shots with his head poking out of the crowd for most of the episode. During the star in a reasonably priced car interview piece, the director asked Sanna to come to the front as they were setting up shot and someone said ‘it’s always the pretty ones’ 🙂 I was sent to the back being too short and too ugly for national TV and went to the back of the studio to watch the live camera feeds on the directors monitor.

Gyton Grantley from the Aussie hit drama series underbelly was the star in the reasonability priced car and he came out at the very top of the celebrity lap times board. Queue Sanna’s spontaneous look of amazement just as Warren the presenter announced the lap time 🙂 I was at the back of the studio have having a good giggle watching her on the monitor.


Queue! spontaneous look of amazement

And here is the YouTube clip!

Little Loti update

Have covered 600+ km’s and 1 track day at Oran Park Raceway so far after the supercharger install and I’m still very impressed with the VF Stage 1 kit.

On the straights at track days, pre-supercharger I would be level with the likes of BMW M3’s, and modified EVO’s would pull away slowly, now it is just pulling hard right past everything on the track right up to 210kph in 5th, where I eased off at the end of Oran Park’s straight. Sanna now says ‘Little Loti has big balls’

I look forwards to getting to a track day soon where there are some exotic supercars, if I can stay level with them on the straight I’ll be more than happy as I’ll get them on the twisty bits 🙂

Friend Brenden from the Lotus club has also fitted a fire doodah for an extra insurance policy using one of his great brackets (highly recommended if you don’t want to drill into your metal floor).

Looks just like it could have been a factory fitted option, just what I was looking for, thanks heaps Brenden.
