You see that it's 11 degrees outside and your first thought is how you're going to get some heat in your tyres.

When you overtake someone and look for helicorsa instead of your mirrors to see if it's clear.

You don't drive directly behind someone for too long in case they warp backwards.

 If you are a left foot breaker and hit the clutch with your left foot and nothing happens!!!!
I actually did this when doing an auscar v8 run around Eastern Creek at the end of the main straight
doing about 180 kph with the co-driver screaming BRAKE! BRAKE!

I've done a V8 race experience at Mallala (a simple track). 7 laps. It was huge fun to drive a car with slicks in anger on a race track and feel the grip, and stopping power, and hit the apexes for real. You have an experienced co-driver with you, and he constantly tells you when to shift and when to brake. I would 100% recommend the experience.

Wally, how fast did you get going in your vid?  Not sure why they have a speedo with no readings on it.
