As a special pre-Christmas gift, we sat down Bob Jane T-Marts CEO Rodney Jane with motor racing royalty Larry Perkins and his speedy son Jack Perkins for a chat about life, racing and more.
And because all of these guys are genuine racers, we thought we'd throw in a quick tyre and Monster Wheels challenge for Rodney and Jack ... the results may surprise you!
Larry Perkins needs little introduction to a true Australian sports fan. The six-times Bathurst 1000 winner is one of the greats of the national motorsport scene. Known for his engineering prowess and determined driving style, Perkins is a Supercars Hall of Famer and regarded as one of the greats.
These days, Perkins Snr manages a farm in the Mallee, Victoria, and this was a topic that Rod was very, very keen to learn more on.
Jack Perkins remains a regular on the motorsport scene. You can see him either behind the wheel of race cars in the biggest events on the local calendar, or you'll see and hear him on the Seven Network's motorsport coverage. Multi-talented, super professional and always up for a chat.
Rodney is also no stranger to the racetrack. Having grown up alongside his famous father whose name continues to headline the Bob Jane T-Marts brand, Rodney has made a return to racing in the past couple of years in Porsche Carrera Cup. While Rodney loves to race, Larry and Jack were keen to talk about his hobbies and the current state of the T-Marts brand – now over 50 years young.
Enjoy this Christmas content, stay safe over the holidays and we look forward to seeing you in 2024.
