Vrrooooommm!

Two firsts today! Went out to Eastern Creek Raceway (now known as Sydney Motorsport Park) to drive a Formula Ford – kind of a small open-wheeled race car. Weather was perfect and the cars certainly have a great power to weight ratio. If you’re looking for all out fun though, I don’t think you can go past go-karts for that close-quarter racing feel. If you bump someone else in a Formula Ford you’re looking at potentially thousands of dollars in repairs – so you end up being somewhat cautious behind the wheel!

Tonight i’m playing tennis for the first time on a clay court! My colleague and I play each week against two – shall we say “old farts” (in their 50’s, so it’s relatively speaking), and they’re beating us so far this season 7 matches to 2! Slightly embarrassing, but it’s all good fun 😉 We normally play on synthetic grass so hopefully the new surface will work in our favour!

Update: We won 6-3 6-3 4-3! Now only 7 matches to 3…
