Spin City

Mad props to Jools for inviting me to come out and play in his racecar. A cold March morning found us circulating the Silverstone International Club Circuit - some with more skill than others...

Just as I was dusting down my paperback copy of "The Big Book of Racing Excuses" (bought from a lovely Mr E. Irvine at an Ulster car boot sale) and thumbing a well worn page about oil on the line Jools took a quick shufty at the footage and pronounced it a bad idea to change gear in the middle of a corner. Arse.

The Porsche that bore down on me at an alarming rate was an uber expensive GT3 natch, two driver's seats that were gripped a wee bit harder that morning then.

5 Step to the white courtesy phone:

That was cool!

I have never seen a "turn in the road" performed at Stowe before though!

Still cool though.

Closest I ever got was doing voluntary marshalling at truck racing there. Still - that was also cool!

Or should that have read "turd in the road"?

Why thank you.

It was Copse, Stowe is up the other end.

At least I didn't smash the front of the car like a Ferrari driver did that morning.
