A taste of the wild side
a quite innocent question. I had a fair idea the back would kick out, but I hadn’t allowed for turbo lag. A rookie error.
Naturally when the time came, we did more than just break a bit of traction.
After no initial bite came a big lump of power, all in one hit. Before I knew it I had chased the Mustang all the way across the road sideways before managing to catch it on the edge of the grass.
You feel a right muppet at the time, but the race track is far and away the best place to make these kinds of high- speed mistakes.
Ford’s hoping that its Performance Track Day Experience can help more of its customers experience the full potential of their machines.
My view is a much simpler one; let’s produce better drivers, and let’s utilise these big ribbons of tarmac more and more often. I’M GOING TO PUT MY FOOT FLAT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS, I TELL HIM. A GUILTY RESPONSE TO WHAT WAS A QUITE INNOCENT QUESTION
