Lowndsey vs Marto: the reversing race revealed

It takes a brave man to challenge Lowndesy in a head-to-head battle at a circuit where he’s won the past five races straight – and that’s why Greg “Marto” Martin opted for a tail-to-tail battle instead.

The Triple M Brisbane Grill Team presenter has taken on Crackers in various challenges at Ipswich the past two years, but this proved a challenge too far. One lap of the Queensland Raceway track in the Red Bull Racing Australia VF Commodore – the road car, not even the race car – and what could possibly go wrong?

Well, when the car’s in reverse, more than you could fathom…

Here’s hoping Lowndesy can avoid such dramas over the weekend and extend his winning streak at Red Bull Racing Australia’s home track to six straight victories.
