Easter long weekend: Checks you should do before your road trip

The Easter long-weekend is upon us and while road trips can be fun they should also come with a fair share of admin.

Alarmingly, one third of Aussie drivers say an orange or red light on car dashboard would not stop them from going on a long road trip.

Lap times are forecast to be slashed by up to five seconds, according to initial estimates, after seven corners on the 5.3km track are modified – and two are removed.

2022 Chevrolet Corvette: Get in quick, GMSV dealers only getting four cars each

The 2022 Chevrolet Corvette will arrive in Australia late this year and early next year initially in extremely limited numbers. Dealers for the newly-created General Motors Specialty Vehicles (GMSV) brand – most of whom are former Holden outlets – have been told they will only receive four cars each in their initial allocation. More cars will follow in 2022 once next year's right-hand-drive production run gets underway.
