Life in the fast Layne - World Winning champ buckles up for a new challenge

Seven-times World Surfing Champion and Vodafone ambassador Layne Beachley buckled up for another hair-raising challenge this morning at Queensland Raceways, jumping behind the wheel of a TeamVodafone V8 Supercar, as part of TeamVodafone's Driver Evaluation Day.

Thriving on her passion for motorsports and absolute desire for competition, Beachley confidently revved up for the challenge - taking to the 3.15km, 7-turn circuit behind the wheel of the 600 horsepower, TeamVodafone V8 Supercar.

The world's number one female surfing champion commented: "I was thrilled when Vodafone asked if I wanted to get to get behind the wheel of Australia's number one V8 supercar as I am a huge TeamVodafone and Motorsport fan

"What an incredible feeling it was to soar around the track at such high-speeds. I am in awe at the physical and mental strength TeamVodafone V8 champions Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes possess.

"To see first-hand, the inner workings of a champion V8 Supercar team, was truly amazing. The principles of success are the same across all sports. You have to believe in yourself and remain positive, even when you're behind the wheel of a powerful V8 car, zooming at break-neck speeds," added Beachley.
