    That was cool, but after watching the MINI WRC clip, that Steve posted yesterday, with the front wheels brushing the edge of a cliff, everything else seems a bit tame to me now. :lol:

    Not sure but that may have been his record breaking run (unofficial) on Bathurst. Like the planned Hamilton/Stewart F1/NASCAR car swap (don't know where or when that will happen), this was during the Button/Lowndes F1/V8 Supercar swap. If I remember right, the official lap record Button beat was Lowndes'...

    Button enjoys historic Bathurst run (crash.net)

    That long uphill would certainly test the engine. Even more so then Interlagos. And I am sure that downhill wouldn't be to gentle on the brakes, either.
