Mikey Bikeys attempt at sprinting - Car 1

So after six runs not yet completed the course successfully so no time. I was a bit spiffy about this even when I first realised what it was, but now I realise it's a brilliant way of learning car control



Or not :roll:

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Well I got 2 timed runs out of 12 attempts and a round of applause for being the most 'enthusiastic' driver. The car got of lot of attention. Probably down to the exhausts note off the startline. Engine bouncing off the rev limiter (7250 rpm) Then a couple of size 11's and the car simply pointing upwards or downward based on fast or slow pedal and complete stupidity inbetween.

Honestly epic day , £20 , 12 runs and more adrenalin than being thrown out of a plane without a parchute.

I'm sure if you did it all the time it would wear a bit thin but when you see the mx5 boys (drift officianous) simply dancing between the cones with more induction noise than your mk1 ford escort it quite impressive.
