It is an off-road racing buggy with 400 hp, 4 litre, competition Lexus V8. Top speed about 160 kmh, not that I got anywhere near that! A very light vehicle and a very quick vehicle. Alot of fun to drive. Getting to drive this for about an hour yesterday was a 50th birthday present from 2 good mates.

As you can see from the next photos, it was very wet and very muddy, but it was an amazing experience all the same.

A drive in the country - a great way to unwind.

Wait - I heard there was a bad drought in Oz, so what's with all the mud?

There is a very bad drought in Australia at the moment. It just happened there was a downpour just as we were getting in the buggies. The dirt turned to mud very quickly. It was not a drought breaker, that's for certain!
