The Grand Slam season kicks off with the Australian Open and features all the big names in tennis. With over $62 million in prize money up for grabs and over 740,000 people walking through the gates each year, you’ll want to keep an eye out for the specially-marked and Kias.
In addition to official duties, these liveried Kias are used to ferry around all the players, with the fleet consisting of 120 cars that are spread across Carnivals, Sorentos and Stingers that travel a crazy 400,000km over 21,000 trips in just a fortnight.
To get a better idea of what these cars do and what they’re like to drive, we had a chat with a bloke that has worked as an Australian Open driver for many years – with one player in particular.
