Saw something today...

Was going along Maroondah Highway in Nunawading (Victoria) and saw a car that looked exactly like John Bowe's test GT. (The white one with the black taping's etc).. was towing a trailer, but i didnt catch the sort of load in the trailer.

Would have thought they'd be done testing etc?

sounds like they might be using a dyno trailer to simulate the load of towing caravans, for the auto's. who knows.

I was in Melbourne the other day, and drove past the FPV factory and the Test GT with black bumpers was parked next to a blue XR6t with black rims.
