So the 6th Motive DVD GT-R Challenge and 5th Motive DVD Drag Battle, presented by Castrol Edge has been run and done. All we will say is this. Every record was broken and we had more 9-second cars this year than 10-second cars last year! I know you’re all dying to know some numbers, and we can’t give them away until the DVD is released, but I will say this, we did see not only one, but two 8-second cars and we saw over 170mph! Stay tuned for a quick teaser video this week and discounted pre-orders will start when the full preview video is released in a couple of weeks. We will also be holding cinema premieres in Sydney and Brisbane, and potentially more cities. Stay tuned.

You can do anything in Vegas. The hard part is choosing exactly what you want to do, but for car enthusiasts there is one easy choice. Dream Racing is the perfect name as it gives us two things we all want. Drive our dream car and drive it on a race track. Based at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Dream Racing allows anyone to get behind the wheel of a super car on the safety of a racetrack. There are packages to suit any budget from a few laps in a GT-R, to more in an Aventador or a full experience in a Ferrari F430 GT race car! As part of our 2013 Motive DVD SEMA Tour, we organised a visit to Dream Racing. Being a group visit, we also got a group discount. Buying in bulk helps!

Thanks to Lexus Australia, we had the use of a Lexus IS350 F Sport for 3 weeks to review. It was my first time driving a Lexus, and it certainly changed my perception of them. For day to day duties, the car was stunning. A luxurious experience, that keeps you cocooned from the outside world. But when driven through “The Nasho”, the new chassis showed its true colour, and was simply amazon. Sports car handling, in a family sedan. If you didn’t look behind you, you could swear your were in a 2-door GT of some type. We enjoyed our time with the car, and are looking forward to reviewing the new ISF. We have a full video review of the IS350 F Sport coming in Motive DVD #21.
