In what can only be described as compulsory viewing for Australian motoring enthusiasts, Monday night TV has for one night only become twice as good.
At 6.30pm on ABC1 program Talking Heads, host Peter Thompson talks with legendary racing driver Sir Jack Brabham (OBE) touching on the early years, the Repco Brabham and his estimable career.
Then at 7.30pm on SBS, Top Gear presents a Pom’s view on Aussie Muscle with the HSV Clubsport R8, or Vauxhaul VXR8, being put through its paces as only Jeremy Clarkson can. There’s also a guest appearance from F1 ace Lewis Hamilton.
If you’re not going to be home set the DVD recorder as this is about as good as motoring TV gets… for now.
