Lowndes gets a 15.1 1/4 mile in an XR6 Turbo at Geelong Speed trials

Was a bit dissapointed. Lowndes farked up his first attempt, must have taken up the clutch to quickly as the crunching sound of gears was evident.

I guess it didnt help the fact that the tank was probably full, There was an extra passanger on board, therer was a 40odd kg towbar on the back (what for?!) and it was 35 degrees (yes we DO actually get sun in Geelong) which as most of you know isnt the best for Turbocharged cars.

EDIT: I wasn't sure which area I should put this in, considering it's not really motorsport, but a public event.
