I'd offer to be your nav but I've never done it before and I don't know how comfortable I'd be in the pax seat at speed. You're better off trying to find someone with nav experience.

I reckon give it a go Waz, all I do is read the notes out, badly at times.

Dunno - self-deprecation aside there's a lot more to it...  I haven't done anything anywhere near proper nav stuff, but I remember just trying to follow the crappy Targa Tas pace/recon (sorry, don't recall which is which) notes last year - we were going about as quick as you'd dare on an open/twisty/damp road, and I still had a hell of a time keeping up with the notes and being 100% sure I was giving the right advice before I spoke.  There were places on the Cethana stages where I felt like I was almost guessing but it seemed right - and luckily it was as mhh didn't lift off in places he normally would without advice!

It was f*cking awesome!!!  Probably in the top-ten of life memories for me (with another man :p ).

One of my favourite moments ever was when we had that long downhill wiggly green valley section and we started at the back but overtook most of the convoy under full throttle while they were under brakes. 

The third best place in the world to be at that time was in the driver's seat of [355]'s WRX who had his window open as we blasted by - first and second best place in the world at that time was the driver and pax seat of your Lamborghini. :)

That car can boogie - but it will never have the same feel of a proper laid-back sportscar.  For a trip as epic as Tassie I would seriously consider bringing something memorable.

i am not driving an exotic all that way, my head would rattle, plus if it rains i want traction control, launch control, 4x4, and all the computer stuff, sideways in a TR is not my idea of fun and considering its not some newly imported HOS from pommy land then i love my car
