Guess Who Got To Drive A V8 Supercar

Yes, that's right... ME!

AND I've got a certificate to prove it. I guess that's the perks of busting your ass for a national magazine. Make sure you get the next edition of Performance Ford on July 27 to read the story and see a few more pics.

How'd you find it ash?

Brakes take a while to work? More pull than a 14 yr old? Did you have a "moment"?

Re: Guess Who Got To Drive A V8 Supercar

You get to the end of the straight and still haven't started braking or shifting back and your like "**** am I gunna stop or what?" then suddenly its hard on the brakes and back a gear and away you go again. I got my ass kicked HARD for flat shifting
( old drag racing habit ) but got that out of my system by the third lap. Had a moment at the end of the straight on my last lap, but somehow managed to get back into it.

cool Re: Guess Who Got To Drive A V8 Supercar

You lucky bastard,if I could drive,I'd be jealous.My son did get to drive in a rally car while he was on holidays in the UK,he had a blast doing it.The instructor said out of all the people he'd had through the course,he was the best and could actually make it in racing.
