LISA GETS UP TO SPEED

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Cover Story -

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.
