Two boys who lost their homes in the Kinglake fires were yesterday given a spin through the main street of their fire ravaged town aboard a twin-seater Minardi with driver Zsolt Baumgartner.

Meanwhile a BMW Sauber, driven by Christian Klien, had the townspeople cheering as it burned rubber and did high-speed circuits of the main drag.

In a high-powered tribute to the victims of Black Saturday, a 220 metre stretch of the town’s main street was transformed into a mini-F1 race track.

The heroes of the Black Saturday bushfires will again be honoured on Sunday, when Grand Prix drivers are presented to the Albert Park crowd on the back of CFA fire trucks.
