The distinctly Australian sounds of James Reyne were a highlight on AAMI Victoria Derby Day. Inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 1996, James’ music and voice has been described as ‘essentially Australian.’

The former Australian Crawl front man and rock royalty fixture has just released his 12th solo studio album, but it was his 80s cult classic ‘Motor’s Too Fast’ that had audiences singing along to his pre-recorded performance from Flemington Racecourse, which also included ‘Slave’ and ‘The Rainbow’s Dead End’.
