Jamie Whincup Burnout – Celebrating his third V8 Supercars championship

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, ‘Wow! What a Ride!”

– Hunter S Thompson

“I want to write the way Australian Super-car driver, Craig Lowndes drives and power-slides his powerful V8 Holden Super-car… with wild enthusiasm and a sense of abandonment, yet combined with the artists craft and smooth style of a Jamie Whincup (craig’s team-mate), a Stirling Moss, a Jim Clark, and especially that of the great Ayrton Senna, living on the razor-blade edge of life.”

(thanks Craig and Jamie, for the great pleasure you give me watching “you guys” race here “across the ditch” on TV)

“a petrol-head (and definitely not an “arty-farty airey-fairey type”) writer”

The various books that Craig “felt inspired to write” (including his various books on his great passion, motor racing and Formula 1) are available at

“Together, one mind, one life, one small step at a time, let’s see how many people we can encourage, impact, empower, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials.”

“Be bold and unseen forces come to one’s aid.”

Love that one!
