Burwood Festival 2009

My second festival for this Spring weekend was a bit closer to home, the Burwood Festival. It was held on Burwood Road and in Burwood Park. I remembered my camera this time, so here are some photos:

Top Gear Season 11

Ferrari 599 - Isle of MannFinally, Top Gear is back! The first episode lived up to my expectations, some absolutely stunning cars and stunningly stupid stunts. Isn’t that what Top Gear is all about? Unfortunately the season will finish just when I get used to an episode every Monday (AEST), it is only 6 episodes short. As good as I think Jeremy is, he must be getting a pretty ridiculous hourly rate. Fingers crossed SBS can get the Australian version of Top Gear up and running so I don’t have to suffer withdrawls between seasons again. Top Gear┬áhave done an interview with the chosen hosts, so things are looking a bit more official and promising. Keep your fingers very tightly crossed that it doesn’t end up being “ambitious but rubbish”.

Ferrari 360 Spider

I managed to get a test drive of a Ferrari 360 Spider today. With a 0-100 km/h figure of 4.5s it is certainly no slouch. It is kind of awe inspiring to drive a car that has been reviewed on Top Gear, a show which I worship. When you are going under 60 km/h the car basically gets very angry and frustrated; lots of bouncing and jolting around. It isn’t until you hit the 100+ km/h mark that it starts to smooth out and the power starts pouring like a creamy Italian espresso. Sorry, after driving and photographing the car today I feel like I need to engage in some Top Gear style journalism too. It was really a great experience, it is just such a shame that we don’t have more roads with decent speed limits. The Old Pacific Highway has lots of patches with 60 km/h limits which ruins the experience, but I guess all the flowers strapped to trees along the way are testament to the reasons for that.
