In this same vehicle, the flamboyant Luff broke the long-standing lap record at Sydney's Oran Park Raceway, which had not been beaten for 10 years. He also set a new lap record for light trucks, and then backed this up with victories and another lap record in sports utes before taking on the Super Trucks with equal success.

He has raced at famous circuits like the Calder Park Thunderdome, Melbourne Grand Prix, Indy Grand Prix (Surfer's Paradise) and claimed third place for a podium finish at the Adelaide Grand Prix driving a Porsche 930. Luffy has also raced at Bathurst with Peter Brock's team in the prestigious James Hardie 12 Hour endurance race.

The 1997 Group A Touring Car Classic at Mount Panorama Bathurst saw the talented Luff pilot a V8 Supercar to second place in privateers and nine outright after being as high as sixth outright during the race. More recently he has achieved victory in an SS Commodore at Bathurst 2001 (Class C) triumphing over a number of Class A rivals. In 2002 he was again Class winner at the inaugural Bathurst 24 Hour and came 10th outright against top international teams.

The 30 day event covered 17,000 gruelling kilometres through 18 of the world's most rugged countries. As Luffy said, "This event reinforced to me just how important self discipline is and why physical and mental fitness can make you a winner."
