HSV VY Clubsport thrashed by Mark Skaife

Mark Skaife can seriously, seriously drive.

With five V8 Supercar titles and six Bathurst 1000 victories under his belt, maybe that’s stating the bleeding obvious, however who knew he was such a hoon?

This promo film is from the release of the HSV VY II Clubsport, which scarily enough was over 12 years ago. The big news was the engine upgrade to 285kW, though there were also suspension tweaks and fairly cosmetic changes, with sharp, angular edges replacing the VX’s curves.

Skaifey wastes no time in demonstrating the HSV’s talents, however based on how he treats it, we’re assuming it wasn’t his company car.
