THE BIG LAP
Our VC testing team has returned from their Big Lap, clocking almost 50,000 test kilometers in the last 12 months. The BIG LAP alone covered 20,000km,
5 states and one territory, 12 test drivers & co-drivers on rotating shift, 33 days or approximately 264 hours of driving, 22 flights in
and out of cities all over Australia, using 4800 liters of diesel, and an undisclosed amount of beer and coffee.
We saw the big crocodile, big wheel barrow, big satellite dish, big lobster, big toad, the big whale, two big bananas and the big guitar. We used 1 fuel filter, wore out one tyre, damaged one intercooler and significantly, didn’t have any flat tyres.
The test trip was essentially a non-stop journey from start to finish, driving every day and weekend for 5 weeks in a row, often driving well into the night.
