COM­ING UP

VHRR HIS­TORIC SANDOWN

Unique Cars - - JB'S DIARY -

I'M RE­ALLY look­ing for­ward to the His­toric Sandown meet­ing that's com­ing up on Novem­ber 10-12. A great meet­ing at a track that I re­ally value. Sandown with its rich mo­tor rac­ing her­itage, is an as­set to Mel­bourne and to mo­tor rac­ing in gen­eral. I will be driv­ing my good mate Joe Calleja’s lovely 1974 March For­mula 1 car at the meet­ing. Driv­ing it is al­ways a treat. I can’t get enough of it. I’m ex­cited to be also driv­ing a Brab­ham BT31 at His­toric Sandown. It will be my first time in the cock­pit of this car, thanks to a gen­er­ous of­fer from its owner Peter Strauss. This Brab­ham was driven by the great man him­self, Sir Jack, in com­pe­ti­tion here in 1969. It was also a Bib Still­well car.

I feel very priv­i­leged to have the op­por­tu­nity to drive so many dif­fer­ent amaz­ing cars at th­ese his­toric events.
