NASCARs latest race winner, Marcos Ambrose is from Launceston in Tasmania, the same part of the state I come from.
Here is Marcos in a Aussie V8 supercar racing at Symmons Plains, just outside his home town of Launceston. Note the #1 on the Ford Falcon indicating Marcos Ambrose is the reigning series champion.
