HAWK IN THE HOT SEAT!

September 29th, 2015 by rhett | No Comments | Leave a comment | Filed in AWSM, Sports, Toys |

Finals footy fever has taken over MANIA HQ and we are turning up the heat with Luke Hodge, Captain of the Hawthorn Hawks! Luke not only has the taste for action on the field, but he’s also a total mini-motorhead, which makes him a perfect ambassador for Hot Wheels!

We grill the Premiership Cup contender about footy, food and rides!

MANIA: How would you describe your play style?

HODGE: “I’m not a fast or aerobic athlete, I’m more of an ‘in and under’ kind of player.”

 

MANIA: What would be the ultimate ride to turn up to the Brownlow in?

HODGE: “I’ve always rode in a Toyota to the Brownlow and last year I had the brand new Kluger. I’d love to turn up in Mastretta MXR, just like the Hot Wheels one.”

 

MANIA: Did you used to collect Hot Wheels as a kid?

HODGE: “I used to collect all kinds! I especially loved the sports and racing cars. It’s awesome to see my son Cooper share the same love for Hot Wheels that I used to as a kid. It’s always fun building the tracks together and racing our favourite cars.”

Hodge and Cooper.

Luke Hodge sets the track with his son, Cooper.

MANIA: Which member of the Hawks eats the most?

HODGE: “Definitely Ben McEvoy – never seen anyone eat as much as him.”

 

MANIA: What are you career highlights?

HODGE: “It would definitely be holding up the Premiership Club on Grand Final Day as captain.”

Hodge tests his motor against the real deal!

MANIA: Tips for kids who want to perfect their kicking game?

HODGE: “Practice makes perfect!”

Watch Hodge take to the track and race Aussie stunt legend, Matt Mingay!
