DARK clouds threatening rain could not stop Big Rigs editor Carly Morrissey and hotlap competition winner Melissa Nonnenma strapping in for the ride of their life today.

Melissa, a truck driver was excited about the hot lap in Steven Zammit's SRZ racing truck.

Meanwhile Carly had never been in a truck before.

After her first taste of motorsport and trucks Carly is not sure which one she would rather be, a truck driver or racing car driver!

Check out the next edition of Big Rigs (out July 20) for the full story and some great photos.
