Clarke aims for a new kind of drive

The Australia cricket captain, Michael Clarke, will drive in the International Rally of Queensland later this month. The 31-year-old will join the BP Ultimate team and drive in two stages of the rally on the Sunshine Coast, from 25-27 May.

"It's pretty well known that I have a passion for driving, but a part of me has always wondered what it would be like to go up against the best in the business," Clarke said. He will drive alongside Mark Stacey, who has competed at international level for two decades.
