LISA GETS UP TO SPEED
LISA McCune, filming the final series of Sea Patrol, is open to new adventures.
That much was obvious with her appearance behind the wheel on Top Gear Australia, co-hosted by her former Guys and Dolls castmate Shane Jacobson (right).
Filming the test lap in a Ford Falcon ute two months ago, the leading lady acquitted herself well, recording a time of just over two minutes (cricketer Michael Clarke holds the top spot with 1:51.47).
‘‘I’m glad I had my Sea Patrol experience behind me, because I was used to going fast in boats, but the adrenalin rush with this was extraordinary,’’ she says. McCune remains modest about her motoring prowess. ‘‘I did OK, besides taking out some tyres’’, she says.
