Known as the consummate professional, Mark Skaife lives, eats and breathes motorsport - and has only one ambition in life, "to look back in 20 years and know I gave it the best I had . . ."
Arguably the best Touring Car driver of the last decade, Mark Skaife pens a "year in the life of" a reigning V8 Champion - from flying down Conrod Straight at nearly 300km/hour to winning the 2001 Bathurst 1000, through to racing around the streets of Parliament House in the national Capital in a roaring 600bhp V8 Supercar.
In 2000 Mark successfully won his 3rd Australian Touring Car Championship, first for the all conquering Holden Racing Team, and in 2001 repeated his dominance on track to clinch his 4th. In 2002 he's giving it his best shot at not only the "hat trick", but equalling the all time record of 5 Championships.
What drives a driver? Come trackside behind the scenes, and find out what it takes to achieve this type of success; the rivalry, the tactics, strategies, and even the in-car radio "chat". Join him in the corporate boardrooms of what is now considered the "business of motorsport".
In today's competitive environment, off-track can be just as competitive as on track . . .
