Bernard is one of our locals and a great guy. Anyone who has worked that hard to get to that stage at 18 deserves his reward. He loves his car just like we all do and is constantly being harassed here by the traffic police.
I guess they just have a thing against a p plate driver having an M3.
Good luck to him, and BTW representing Australia and getting to a level to challenge Roger Federer is a major accomplishment.

P plate drivers are not allowed to drive V8 cars (at least here in NSW)
So why should he be any different?

Yeah that was my thought when I read about his "special exception". No matter who is is he should be subject to the same requirements.

"he's revving engines at pedestrians"

He really has a special edition M3. No rollbar? Or no GTS?

Awesome player or not, I have little respect for tennis brats, or any other sport brats for that matter. The cops should have impounded his car!
