In the spirit of the Spring Carnival, two of Australia’s leading jockeys, Corey Brown and Nash Rawiller, were appointed as ambassadors to FPV for the duration of the event.
Brown, who missed taking this year’s Melbourne Cup by just a centimetre, has been commuting between his Mornington Peninsula base and Flemington in a brand new FG series FPV GT-P and was understandably reluctant to give it back at the end of the carnival.
“Mate these things are amazing, I reckon I’ll trade in the X5 for this. They’ve got a great grunt to them, but drive beautifully around town. It’s a shame I didn’t have the same sort of power on tap during the Cup!” Brown joked.
Nash Rawiller also sampled a taste of FPV’s latest offerings during the carnival, driving both the F6 and GT.
“Well I’d be stumped if I had to pick just one, they’re both such awesome machines. The F6 handles beautifully and has this brutal acceleration when you call for it that just keeps coming on. Whereas the GT with the V8 has the mambo turned on permanently. I suppose it’s a similar difference between riding a sprinter and stayer,” he said.
In the past month alone, Rawiller and Brown have ridden over twenty winners between them, ranking the pair among Australia’s elite jockeys with their winning ways look set to continue across the summer.
CarAdvice will have a full review of the FPV F6 310 in a couple of weeks.
