What do you enjoy most about your career?
The fact that I get to perform in front of lots of people and being able to do a variety of different things. Not only performing on stage but on TV has been really cool as well, I think the best thing about it was mentoring and inspiring other young performers.
Tell me about your first car?
Casanova – he was a Holden nova. It was a 1.4L hatchback, I put a stereo in it and it was awesome. When I was in a band I used to put the PA system in the back so it was basically a two-seater. I loved that car I saved up all my paper round money for it.
How do you think you’ll go in the Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge? What are you expectations?
I would like to finish on the podium, I think everyone would like to finish on the podium. I don’t really have any expectations as I have never driven really fast – except for go carting three years ago when I won so if we are going by that I am looking good.
Who is your favourite Formula 1® driver and why?
Mark Webber is my favourite, not only because he is an Aussie but he is probably the best test driver in the world. He plays his role very well and he is a sensational driver who has worked his way up, to stay so humble and so focussed is amazing. He’s a superstar and does Australia proud.
What do you think of the All-New Mazda3?
It’s a sexy car. I’m a real fan of the hatchback, as I said my first car was a hatchback. It looks great, the styling is awesome, I haven’t driven it yet but at the moment it looks like a sensational little car – I look forward to maybe trading in my Subaru and maybe getting a Mazda3.
