What a chaotic race – 2 red flags ‘return to pit lane’ in 1 race with the winner not really determined until after the second red flag. And the damage to the Formula 1 cars that didn’t finish the race will run into millions in repairs. The 2020 Tuscan Grand

Dear Lewis. Re: 2020 Belgian Grand Prix. First of all, I’d like to sincerely congratulate you on the flag to flag victory in the Belgian Grand Prix this last Sunday. It seems that you managed to qualify very well and deserved pole position without question. But I was curious to
I’ve just driven my first Haval H9 Ultra 4WD, but only for a short lap of the Redcliffe Peninsula. But you only get 1 chance to create a first impression and here’s mine. I was asked by David from Coorparoo to souce a Haval H9 for his family through Car

I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.

Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.
thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .
And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.
So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
