ilabb family shredder Mad Mike Whiddett took on the first round of the Australian GT over the weekend, suiting up and getting behind the wheel of the Darrel Lea McLaren 650S GT3.


The first round took place on the Phillip Island track and was an opportunity for Mike to show of his focus and commitment to the race as he reached speeds of 270kmh. Mike proved to be the faster driver in warm up so was the second driver in the 500km race.


The endurance race proved be a great weekend for Mike and Tony Quinn as they showed consistency and some epic racing.


What a challenging race! Tough conditions driving the @darrelllea @mclaren for the first time in the wet. Slowly built up my confidence over 50 laps to gain a couple of places and be within a second of the leading pace. HUGE thanks to Tony Quinn and the entire team you gave me a very fast car to drive this weekend and I had a blast.

Stay tuned to the EDIT for more results and Mike and Tony continue to build throughout the Australian GT rounds yeeow!
